The former Ports of Auckland workers and their Union brothers march down Queen Street lead One News but came in third on 3 behind two Chris Cairns stories.
The story about the New Zealand woman jailed in the US for trading babies was newsworthy but also a promo for TV One’s current affairs show Sunday.
Despite being exhonorated, released from prison and then spending an hour listening to David Bain give his first public speech about the murders of his family, One News’ Steve Marshall’s first question was “did you kill your family?” I’m not sure which is worse. Asking the question or admiting you asked the question? What kind of response was he honestly expecting to get? Or was that the whole point?
