Can CPAG show some appreciation for a change?

It occurred to me today (as I argued with Andrei at Home Paddock about the veracity of the reported drop in teen mothers reliant on welfare) that the Child Poverty Action Group never reports on positive relevant news.

Teen mothers who start out on welfare stay there a long time. According to new MSD Minister Anne Tolley, 19 years.

Home Paddock reports Tolley's latest offering, titling the post Fewer teen parents, less poverty. And that is exactly right.

So can we have some appreciation from CPAG for a change? Or does their political bias preclude it?
