A welcome new addition to the NZ Herald: Keith Ng’s new column “Just the facts”, which seeks to ferret out the truth behind factual and statistical claims made by politicians (… and the media?). I think we need more of this kind of journalism.

Keith Ng, you may remember, famously exposed the misuse of statistics in Deborah Coddington’s “Asian Angst” story.

David Farrar subjects Keith’s column to his own fact-checking here, suggesting that “the facts” are sometimes quite slippery.
