When I submitted this comment:

Is it beyond the Advocate's capabilities to find a photograph of the subject of this article? Or is it Advocate policy to only run photos of their advertising clients?

The article in question was hastily amended to replace the photo of Cr. Hines with a photo of Rodney. The comment of course was not published.

Also worth noting is that the article nominally about Rodney included a roundup of other councillors' plans for the election, and a totally out of context quote recycled from an earlier article about Cr. Hines. However the earlier Hines article included no such elements of journalistic "balance". Also no byline; perhaps because it was a verbatim publishing of a press release?
