More Herald Bombs

Not even typing English now, or even Engrish…just Engish:
Engish not so good...

What started as an attempt to highlight the occasional fun error eventually turned into a torrent of examples, sometimes multiples per day, of the NZ Herald staff having no pride in their work.  Instead of hammering you with all of them, we’re just going to pick some of them in a single post each week.  Just to let you know nothing’s changed.

If you spot any, feel free to send them in.

only 156 km out taupodeath

That is a bridge in Hamilton, not in Taupo.  The Taupo Control Gates are 1 km past where Lake Taupo actually flows into the Waikato river, so the photo is only a 155 km off.


What?  No Fish?gggg

Oh look!  Whangarei Flick is back!  This time off to a Wanganui fire.  Good on him.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
