Geektastic:

 

joker97: I guess I could bring up the ODT. Sometimes the headline of lost cat takes up the front page. (And odt prints on the old giant paper size, albeit thinner than a few mm in all its pages)

 

 

 

"And in Breaking News, Mrs Doris Hammersmith, 62, of Walnut Grove, Gore in Southland reports today that she has now found her spare reading glasses which were behind the kettle in the kitchen. To repeat, Mrs Doris Hammersmith has now FOUND her missing reading glasses. We cross over to our Southland reporter, Mike Harris, for a live update now ...... Mike, kia ora there in Southland. What can you tell us about the current situation?"

 

 

 

 

Which is more news worthy than Kim whatsoever her name doing selfies if her new post baby bottom which might have been photo shipped or liposuctioned or maybe shrunk on her vegegan, GMO free hemeo what ever diet...

 

 

 

Or another article about Auckland house prices.

JimmyH:

gzt: Interesting! What kind of financial news do you want to see?


 


well for starters:


1.  A lot more coverage of the days activity international financial markets - New York, London, Tokyo, Singapore


2.  Some of the columns like the insightful ones Ambrose writes in the Telegraph about the impact of QE on interest rates and asset prices


3.  Proper analysis and explanation of major NZ stuff - like Reserve Bank OCR changes - not just a few dumbed-down quotes from a bank economist or lobbyist masquerading as proper analysis, or regurgitation of the press release (which I will read in full on the website for myself if I want to).


4.  Proper write-ups and analysis of NZ company financial results when they are released - again, not just a couple of quotes from the company's press-release and pre-packaged spin.


Herald have always had a worst points of #3 approach to business and financial coverage. They are missing an opportunity, which is how NBR got started and remains relevant.

As long as people think it is the height of wit for some fat cartoon father to fart in his daughter's face they will probably think celebrity burping is the latest in cultural refinement.

Well it's either that or name him/her after a fruit. "Apple", "Peaches" or some other trendy goddamned thing.
