Your canine crusader was amused to hear that the spin doctors at Twitch & Tweet – more commonly known as Forest & Bird – were unhappy with the way one of its activists was described in a story run in Rural News in December last year on the way the government farmer Landcorp is playing politics and sucking up to the environmental sector.

The ‘offending’ article referred to Forest & Bird’s Annabeth Cohen as an ‘anti-farming advocate’. “This is incorrect and misleading,” Twitch & Tweet’s PR hack whined in an email to the editor, demanding that Cohen be described as a ‘fresh-water advocate’. However, the Hound believes the initial description is apt and one need only look at Cohen’s public utterances about farming to see this.
