Fake News shilled by NZ Herald and picked up by New Zealand Blogs

Whaleoil reader Holdonamo cc’d us in on an e-mail he sent to the NZ Herald’s news desk. As soon as I saw the two photos below online I seriously doubted their legitimacy and it appears I was not the only one.

Hi NZ Herald

Any valid reason or rational non-politically biased explanation as to why you are choosing to perpetuate an entirely false narrative and indeed publishing FAKE NEWS propaganda in your published article? Here’s your currently published photo under your own deceptive headline title where you are trying to falsely allege a much smaller turnout for Trumps Inauguration.

Spock’s selection: It’s news Jim but not as we know it.

I have scanned the Stuff and New Zealand Herald websites to find examples of news headlines that are more suited to a women’s weekly magazine than a serious MSM News outlet.

So, the NZ Herald spent six months on an “investigation” into hair extensions

The NZ Herald states that they spent six months investigating hair extensions and where they come from.

Here is a tweet from one of their journalists bragging about it:

screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-9-45-10-pmSounds impressive. Then another of their journalists gets snippy on Facebook because someone criticised their 6 months worth of work. Read more »

NZ Herald thinks it’s OK To ridicule the Old Testament

NZ Herald thinks it’s OK to ridicule the Old Testament.

And, it is ok. Praise the Lord, that Ana Samways chose to mock the old testament, sacred to Christians and Jews, instead of mocking the Quran, Mohammed or Muslims in her sideswipe column from Monday.

What do Christians and Jews do in response to ridiculing of their good book? Why, they write letters and discuss.

 

This Sideswipe column is only mildly witty in some parts. It was ridicule, but acceptable ridicule, and today, the NZ Herald published a letter from someone who was offended. Good on them. Power of the pen.

Are NZ Herald ‘Journalists’ Afraid Of Insulting Islam?

Shaykh Anwar Sahib has shut down the at-Taqwa YouTube channel so it is harder now to see the hate that he thinks is appropriate for even public consumption. The widely (except for Labour and the Greens) condemned Auckland hate preacher was exposed in January by Whaleoil for having known Islamic State supporters in his mosque (masjid).

Before the videos were taken down, we found one more clip of interest.

It shows the radical Shaykh admitting that he knew about contact that was made by a ‘sister’ trying to warn the NZ Herald that the masjid promotes terror. We can only hope that she wasn’t beaten with a hammer when she got home.   Read more »

Who would know? The Herald certainly doesn’t

Kelvin Davis made much about so-called fight clubs at a Serco-run prison.

So much so they lost their contract.

Now a report has revealed that fight clubs exist at other prisons, run by Corrections…or does it?

The first paragraph states:

A Corrections investigation into “fight clubs” at Mt Eden prison found evidence that similar fighting rings were being run at other prisons.

And the Herald ran this headline:

And to think the NZ Herald actually charge people for this

No surprise… you’re terrible at everything, you are inferior, and the NZ Herald is here to sort your life out you worthless piece of human waste.

They’ll get Newspaper of the Year.  No doubt about it.

The NZ Herald’s full court press to get Paul Henry fired continues

crying

The NZ Herald continues its ‘Get Paul Henry’ campaign…aided and abetted by the luvvies.

They’ve called in veteran whinger and prospective Labour candidate for Rotorua and national anthem singer, Lizzie Marvelly, to have a whinge.

Singer/songwriter Lizzie Marvelly has pulled out of a panel on TV3’s Paul Henry Show tomorrow in protest at Henry’s comments about women’s breasts.

Marvelly, a Weekend Herald columnist and founder of the feminist website The Villainesse, said on Twitter she was “saddened” to read Henry’s comments toHerald journalist Greg Bruce about the “perfect titties” of a woman at another table in the restaurant where he was interviewed, and the “adequate titties” of a woman she was dining with.

“I have a huge amount of respect for Paul as a broadcaster and a person, and I was surprised to read his objectifying comments,” she said.   Read more »

Why NZME make me sick

hypocrites

Today the NZ Herald, owned by NZME has splashed a story about a radio host from the competing Mediaworks stable all over their website…it is also pushed out via their gossip site Spy.

That radio host is clearly suffering a major depressive episode, and as a fellow sufferer of depression, I know precisely what she is going through. The last thing she needs is the gutless wankers at the NZ Herald prying into her private life.

But their actions stand in stark contrast to the rather glowing eulogies they are handing out right now to one of their own.

So…here’s the thing.

The guy who was found in a pool of piss, shit and vomit in a hotel in Cambodia after a long bender on opiates and meth apparently deserves respect and care. Everything is glossed over. They go on about how he was a caring Dad and husband…blah, blah, blah.

But then they go and kick the shit out of someone clearly suffering a massive depressive episode, all of a sudden their pretense of care and love is out the window in the name of clickbait headlines and attacking the opposition media organisation.

They should get their own house in order. They need to realise that their staff aren’t pure…from the top down.   Read more »
