Actually yes. Just because it is syndicated doesn't mean it isn't an advert.


The product mentioned is on sale at Bunnings NZ.


The author (Shireen Khalil), has a history of promoting products.


It is an advert.


Your claim this is advertising implies the NZHerald is compensated for running this article in the online edition lifestyle section.

I claim nzh is publishing this as an online interest article for benefit of the kind of reader that clicks these articles and reads them.

Having free filler material to put in the paper is also a form of compensation. Lots of advertisers do it.

I claim you maybe both correct. My opinion is the writer might have been compensated when creating the content and SMH originally published it - NZ Herald picked it up as part of the syndication and might not even be paid (but indeed pay) to run it. Basically a filler.

What does agile mean. ??....

Probably no guaranteed hours but you must be available at drop of a hat which prevents you get another part time job.

Something that should be regulated against.

RNZ: https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/the-service/418531/sis-minister-andrew-little-refuses-to-deny-signing-off-on-embassy-break-ins

 

SIS Minister Andrew Little refuses to deny signing off on embassy break-ins
The minister in charge of New Zealand's spy agencies, Andrew Little, is refusing to deny he has signed off on embassy break-ins.

 

Of course he does, and Guyon Espiner always knew he would, this is a classic security service "neither confirm nor deny" situation.
Funny, they asked Helen Clark who they report as actually saying "I can neither confirm nor deny".
They apparently didn't ask Chris Finlayson or Sir John Key or Dame Jenny Shipley or Sir Jim Bolger, all of whom would have given exactly the same answer, or told RNZ not to ask such a silly question.

 

Standard Not Achieved, RNZ 😡

Little is the current SIS minister. Clark was a member of the 87 govt. None of the National party people you mentioned were members of that government. It makes perfect sense to me not to ask the National party members.

But three of them are former Prime Ministers, do you not think they had ‘reports’ from the GCSB or SIS?

It's easily possible. This is a very good point.

"George Floyd murder suspect Chauvin granted bail at $1.25m"

 

Is it just me or is this RNZ headline confusing? I thought it meant the bugger had actually been released on bail, which is how I read it. I had to read the whole article to discover that bail has not been granted, merely set at $1.25 million. Is RNZ now getting its journalists from primary school?

Normally it’s the sub-editor, otherwise known as a journalist who has been promoted above their competency level.

I am sure that most of the media outlets rely on Geekzone for their editing. (They don't seem to have any capable in-house staff left to do it anyway!)
