Misleading Headlines in the Herald

Nick Eynon of Three Point Turn does a good fisk on the Herald story headlined 'Greens withering in new poll'.

In fact, the Herald's own polls show the opposite effect. Compared to the last Herald-Digipoll the Greens actually went up from 3.2% to 4% in the poll reported on Sunday.

It is possible a subeditor is to blame here - they often tweak headlines without checking with the journalist to make sure it accurately reflects the story.
