Stuff accepts report from Nutjob

Stuff today produced a "report" from a Kiwi in Gaza

It was very one sided - ridiculously so.  David Farrar at Kiwiblog has identified that the author was actually a nutter from "Kia Ora Gaza"

Now I am not suggesting the views of Ms Webb-Pullman should not be reported, as she is able to report first hand.
But surely the media have an obligation not to present her as a disinterested freelance journalist!
She is a long-standing political activist for the communist regime in Cuba, the revolutionary leftist Zapatistas, and the Kia Ora Gaza and NZ Palestine Human Rights Campaign. She disputes that Israel even has a right to exist as a legitimate state, and people can judge this statement for themselves:
 And unsurprisingly, it's not the first time she has been outed.

She was also interviewed by TV3 this morning.

Hopefully Stuff print a retraction.  I'm forwarding this to HonestReporting!
