NZ Herald inaccuracies

As a NZ Herald reader I am concerned about how quickly accurate reporting seems to have got in the way of a good story. Yet again today there are mistakes in an IT story, apparently Woosh now operate a WiMax network!

Come on guys, get your facts right..

Woosh WiMax? As of today there's no such a thing, as pointed out by sbiddle... What's the problem with the MSM?

I emailed the writer of the story and complained about them writing unaccurate stories

I wouldn't bother... they haven't changed before and its unlikely they'll change now.
