Is "App" a stand word for "Bust"?

The funny thing is, if you read the newspaper, it's really easy to not even notice these headlines, if they even make it to the paper.

OMG! Fleur has been dumped by the bachelor! Headlines all over the place. Breaking news! Never mind all the massacered Syrian families! Forget the election of the next (and last) American President! Ignore the corruption in high places! This is REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT!

When the merge happens, it won't get any better, the difference is that some news at least will likely be behind a paywall. The paywalls are apparently already all setup and ready to go, but once there is no competition between the two media organisations in NZ, I imagine the switch will be flicked on fairly shortly afterwards. But who is actually going to pay for this drivel? I suppose we do still have radio NZ, but for how long as the government can cut funding if they wish to reduce their resources.

 

The big problem at the moment with NZ mainstream media shows is that there is now no longer any mainstream shows that grill the Politicians, like Holmes and Campbell did, where the general public can easily see it over dinner. But maybe they have come to the realization that politicians rarely answer the questions anyway, and are scripted by spin doctors?

"NZME, Fairfax merger talks: What does this mean? WATCH: Exclusive merger talks are underway between NZME and Fairfax to create a new NZ Media empire. We discuss what this means?"

Verbatim. My prediction - the additional question mark will not last. ; ).

Paywall to read the news online? Fine! So how 'bout they actually give us some real news instead of:

 

Who's prettiest, who's had plastic surgery this week, who's best and worst dressed, which celebrity's dog caught an STD, which batchelorette did whatever to whomever, Mrs Mavis Ramsbottom's cat Tiddles stuck up tree for three days, who's most popular, this mystery woman seen on alblack's arm, is cute kid the next Rembrant?, cricket star caught with [insert whatever you choose], Auckland traffic in gridlock, ...

 

I could go on forever. I for one wouldn't pay these idiots a cent if they continue to publish these "stories" and/or copy and paste similar drivel from other sites that are just as bad.

I've said this before but anyway. The print product is different. The clickbait is paying for the free service. It's a great service. Ignore the clickbait.

But.. um... the clickbait packaging technique is starting to bleed over to serious news items and that is a bit concerning...

The Bachelor thing. It lasted 72 hours Stuff says today. Everyone knows the show stopped filming a month ago, so how can that be 72 hours?

 

A) Reporter doesnt know much but reports anyway

 

B) Feels a mistruth allows for a greater story.

 

Note, post is about A+B not The Bachelor

I thought "App" was a typo until I saw how far apart "P" and "S" are on the keyboard.

I agree. I was reading an article about why we have so much domestic violence and then I saw your post. "Ah," I thought, "It's because so few people actually have a brain."
