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:

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 »

First the NZ Herald hires a bullying journalist who wants to break Farrar’s leg, now they allow anti-Semitism on their Facebook page

We all know that the NZ Herald has hired a columnist who threatened to break David Farrar’s legs for daring to have an opposing view to hers.

David Farrar also posted yesterday about an anti-Semitic comment left on the NZ Herald’s website.

You’d have thought they would remove it, but I just checked and it is still there.

Journalist who threatened to break Farrar’s legs now works for NZ Herald

The journalist, who I once stood up for when she got death threats, and then who went on to threaten to break David Farrar’s legs because she disagreed with him , is now working for the NZ Herald.

David Farrar isn’t happy.

I blogged last month about how former Fairfax columnist Rachel Stewart tweeted on how she want to meet me in a dark alley and break my legs. She even emphasised she was in no way joking.

Lovely, she should fit right in with Nippert, Fisher and Currie.

At the time I blogged I described her as a Fairfax columnist as she had been, and there had been no public notification of any change of status. I had a senior staffer at Fairfax ring me up and tell me she’d done her last column three days earlier, and no longer worked for them. I got the strong impression that if she was still a columnist for them, they would find her threats of violence incompatible. They were very keen for me to emphasise that she was a former columnist.   Read more »
