you have to be kidding
This is accurate. A headline is the header of an article. These are the latest headlines. You happen to have looked during an update. If you want to be a bit more serious look at the sections instead of the front page.
Stuff and NZH could be a lot better at presenting items based on interest. At the same time they both know that people spend more time on trivia/entertainment stories than those same people care to admit. If they don't publish those stories they lose readers and revenue.
Its called latest news headlines, most of it isn't News
Yes guys, it is actually news. Most of that is entertainment news, just happened to be updated at that time. Latest. Next time you click on that stuff, go look what section you arrive in. Entertainment or similar for most of that stuff.
