The Waikato Times and some other Fairfax Media publications ran a Joshua Drummond column that incorrectly stated Mr Craig opposes the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill on religious grounds. Fairfax Media accepts that Mr Craig has not made the claim the column attributed to him. It withdraws the statement and has published Mr Craig’s detailed reply to the column, including his views regarding the Bill. Fairfax apologises that the independent columnists’ column contained an inaccuracy that was not picked up prior to publication.
