^^^ I'd trust that about as much as I would an overseas online pharmacy selling medication at dirt cheap prices.

Herald and Stuff ARE NOT responsible, reliable news sources.

The BBC for current world news (very good technology coverage, cybersecurity etc).

The Listener for NZ comment.

The Economist for world comment (not just about money! free electronic version from Auckland Library via the Zinio app).

But where to get NZ current news?

I have recently seen some doubtful reporting on RNZ. It is still better than anything else, but I think lack of funding is strangling it. I have also been looking out for alternatives. Newscollective might be one. Ziln isn't news as such but it sometimes has interesting NZ-focused material. There is a Kiwi Kids news site that isn't bad. Other sites include Scoop, Openureyes, Newsroom, The Spinoff, Voxy, and for satire, The Civilian.
