(I’m quite sure the Heartland Institute isn’t going to try suing all the media outlets to stop this story… but in case they do, I’ve made archives of the Hot Topic post, the New Zealand Herald article, the Hard News item, the Radio New Zealand coverage, the Stuff.co.nz story, and last but not least the Radio NZ‘s Morning Report podcast (where NZ inactivist Owen McShane offers a short defence of the list — though for this one, you probably want to download the 1.2MB, 3′ 12″ MP3 from the original site instead…).)
So, what’s Heartland Institute’s “response” to this whole thing? Well, get this: their response is to suddenly remember that Waikato University is in New Zealand, not Australia! Oops. In Heartland’s 5 May statement, Bast had declared that
We plan to make no further changes to the articles or to the lists.
I guess things just refuse to go as planned…
(OK, I admit that this NZ vs. Australia thing can get people confused at times. I mean, they both have cute animals and they’re both not America, right? Anyway, I usually remember Waikato University simply as the home of the BOFH… sorry guys.)
