NZHerald "Breaking News"*: A Helicopter landed at a Golf Course.

 

 

 

A) Really?  That's hardly news, let alone "Breaking".

 

B) Can the media please stop fawning all over Former-President Obama?  It's just embarrassing.

 

 

 

* I'd like to see the Herald use a more honest description in their banners - in this case, I think "Hot Gossip!" would have been a suitable label.

Met Service is dumb, here is AKL forecast

 

Mainly fine, but isolated afternoon showers, possibly heavy. Light winds.

 


at the bottom it says Total rainfall so far today: 0.2 mm. Total rainfall forecast for today: 0.2 mm

 

 

 

So, isolated showers, possibly heavy but no rain is expected also???   Maybe its not very wet rain? Yeah thats it

Not an individual headline as such, but every time I look at Stuff (which is seldom now) they seem to have yet another article beating the drum for sugar taxes. Presumably, from the way they are written, ghost written by activists pushing that barrow.

 

Which begs the question: Is Stuff a bona fide news organisation that seems to report the news in an unbiased fashion, or does it now see it's role as being to run one-sided social policy advocacy campaigns?

 

I understand the odd opinion piece being carried, but the interminable sugar tax advocacy is getting a bit ridiculous.

NZH again: "Which kiwi celebs should star on Married at First Sight?"

 

None of them.  The program is an abomination that should be cancelled.

 

... and people wonder why Marriages don't last any more.

Glider flown to hospital

 

 

 

NO the glider was not flown to a hospital!

 

Click on the story to get a headline which says:

 

 

Man flown to hospital after gliding crash near Picton

 

then:

 

A man has been flown to Nelson Hospital after being involved in a paragliding crash in Waikawa, near Picton, on Friday.

 

 

 

It's not even a glider as such!
