Journalists I like

By Steven | May 4, 2011

I’m conscious of the fact that I often bag on journalists and media organisations. So I’ve decided to throw out the occasional bouquet too, in the interests of balance.

First up: take a bow Margo White. Her recent Listener story on the Maungatautari Ecological Island reminded me what a terrific journalist she is: thorough, smart, fair, and eloquent. She had to boil down some particularly tough issues and hold the balance between the warring factions. Gareth Morgan’s slightly whiny claim that she’d failed to “grasp the nettle” seems little more than a complaint that she didn’t side with him.
