Timor: 'Abysmal' NZ Herald Faces Flack From Former Foreign Minister

[1] Former Associate Foreign Affairs Minister Matt Robson was astounded by a recent NZ Herald editorial on Timor. Mr Robson describes the Herald's editorial as 'patronising cant' and 'abysmal'. Regular Scoop contributor No Right Turn is also incensed by the NZ Herald, namely a column written by senior Herald journalist John Roughan. NRT points out that Mr Roughan appears to be an apologist for the genocide and torture inflicted upon Timor by Indonesia. Mr Roughan described this state of affairs as 'rugged' in his column. See… The States That Failed East Timor [2] And also Herald Describes Genocide as 'Rugged' - A Response [3] ON THE GROUND IN TIMOR:
