No Bias Here

The unbiased media is in election mode in Queensland.

The headline:

Lib leader kicked out of shopping centre
The intro:

QUEENSLAND Liberal leader Bruce Flegg has been turned away from a Brisbane shopping centre while campaigning for the state election.
Paragraphs 2 and 3:

A spokeswoman for the Peninsula Fair shopping centre near Redcliffe, in Brisbane's north, said today Dr Flegg was asked to leave the complex because he did not ask permission to campaign there.

“We just don't allow campaigning in the centre and he hadn't organised it with us beforehand,” the spokeswoman said.
However, in paragraphs 4, 5 and 6:

But a spokesman for Dr Flegg denied he had been asked to leave.

“No one actually spoke to Bruce and we were already on our way out,” the spokesman said.

“We were just popping in for coffee and a quick chat ... we certainly weren't escorted off the premises. They didn't speak to Bruce, they spoke to me, and he wasn't aware there was a problem.
