This is a positive for the government, as they are following up on their promises to restrict mining in favor of conservation.
Ok. What’s the big deal?
Well, I didn’t even know this happened until No Right Turn blogged about it.
The usual sites that I go to to find out what is happening in NZ politics, Stuff, the NZ Herald, and Newshub, all had no reports on this.
Look, that is something that should change.
Reporting only negative media about the government will get them more clicks, but it is important to report both the good and the bad on the government.
Otherwise, they risk not telling the whole story and seeing trust drop in them.
I hope the media will change their ways on this.
