"Clarke Gayford's hilarious story of friend's mishap with wrong cat"

 

 

 

Just..OMFG. I haven't a clue who Clarke Gayford is, but seriously, Herald?

Had to Google it... Clarke Gayford is Jacinda's partner.

 

So the "news" is that the partner of a politician (a TV presenter) can tell a story well about a friend who had a mishap with a "wrong" cat. Sorry to ruin it for everybody; I didn't read the actual story. Maybe the Herald should hire CG.

 

But, the big question; what impact will this have on the share market?

That's about as useless as 'All black's cousin caught drink driving'. I've seen a few so-called news articles with that as a headline. undecided

Thanks for saving us all the trouble of having to look that up. Now filed under "Tedious and irrelevant ephemera"!

And sometimes pushed as "Breaking news" as well.

"iPhone 9 rumours start: A design-overhaul could be imminent"

 

I think this is a strange definition of "imminent" for something that is undoubtedly a year away.

True! I wouldn't be surprised to see a headline like this: "Breaking news: Andromeda Galaxy and Milky Way on collision course!"

 

These two galaxies are predicted to collide in about four billion years, so we have plenty of time to get our affairs in order yet.

Stuff: "Train hits car at crossing in South Auckland, halting rail services"

 

The headline's OK, but clicking it results in a password prompt followed by an Access Denied error. Once again, the "rush to be first" has caused them to not actually test things before publishing...

On the topic of the "Cool story bro" articles, I'd hate to be the ol ducky who is telling the nation about how she now has to walk an extra 1 minute because Auckland transport has done something and now the world is gonna end. It would be quite shameful.

NZHerald: "Peters in secret meetings with English, Adern". Um, they aren't secret if everybody knows they are occurring. Perhaps you mean 'confidential', or closed door.

Maybe on topic, Stuff comments. While I dont feel insecure or sad, if I happen to read a topical type topic, I check Stuff comments! It makes me feel extremely normal to read that sh!te!

 

Actually almost embarrassed.

This mornings front page, it was click-bait on paper.

 

The paper is generally folded in half so when you glance at it the headline is either "It's Labour or It's National"

 

Just bloody poor journalism, just like rehashing the clown face used on The Australian and English rugby coaches, unoriginal, unnecessary and un-Kiwi.

LAWRENCE SMITH/STUFF

 

 

New Labour Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, goes for her first public walk about in Sandringham, Auckland during their Spring Festival since becoming Preime Minister.

 

 

 

Preime Minister?

"Apple Crushes Expectations"

 

"The company sold 46.6 million iPhones last quarter, which came in about 500,000 units ahead of expectations."

 

So selling 1% more than expected "crushes" expectations, apparently...
