The Yardstick: Where’s the outrage over David Seymour’s cartoon?

Newstalk ZB contributor Mike Yardley joined Canterbury Mornings with Chris Lynch, as he does every Friday morning, to discuss the issues making news this week.

A cartoon published by Stuff newspapers and drawn by Sharon Murdoch, depicts ACT Party leader David Seymour being kissed on the ears by Adolf Hitler and what appears to be David Duke from the Ku Klux Klan.

It comes in the wake of the Otago Daily Times cartoon, illustrated by Garrick Tremain, making light of the Samoa measles outbreak.

Mike Yardley says the silence from the media and left over Stuff's David Seymour cartoon exposes their double standards, and highlights their selective moral outrage.

Yardley says this is another example of the left only being outraged when it suits their agenda.
