News at the Herald on Sunday, on Saturday

Free hit, 6 runs off a no ball, this is a massive Herald Bomb…they are busily publishing tomorrows Herald on Sunday articles, including the editorial online as we speak. Looks like Bryce John’s “decent journalists, trained and skilled” are going to save us a few minutes and some cash tomorrow by enabling us to not buy their rag by publishing online tonight…interesting strategy.

Here is Matt McCarten’s column:


And here is the Editorial:

    Well when your audience is so badly informed its easy to fool them into thinking that they are getting up to date info by putting inaccurate datelines.

  • Agent BallSack

    Oh fuck! I do that all the time… Its called running on Coruba time

  • GazzW

    What about the Blues v Highlanders result then? Bloody Herald let us down again.

    • Bunswalla

      Never mind that, what about the Lotto results?

      BTW Highlanders in a canter

      • Tony V

        Blues starting to clean up their act

  • Agent BallSack

    David Shearer suggest knighthoods should only be given on Maori Day. I like that headline. Here’s your Award – fuck you, we’re all reporting shenanigans involving the Harawiras

  • Agent BallSack

    I like how Rodneys first 2 paragraphs draw the average pinko in, then he delivers the next sentence which has them all salivating with glee. Bet the fold over shows he’s totally sarcastic, drawing the ire and subsequent comments that follow. Nice one Rodney.

  • Dumrse

    That fucks up the old adage that…..Todays news is tomorrows fish and chip wrappers. It’s gonna have to be something like … Tomorrows news is todays wrappers.

  • Gungadin

    Any chance you could slip me the Lotto numbers Cam ?

    • LesleyNZ

      Very good.

  • LesleyNZ

    Those people who pay a NZ Herald subscription should be really mad about this.

  • LesleyNZ

    Gotta be one of the first comments – wonder if NZ Herald will publish – or maybe they will say there were too many comments. LOL!

    In pre-European Māori culture, many if not most high-ranking persons received moko, and those who went without them were seen as persons of lower social status.

    Now , it’s the other way round .

    • Bunswalla

      It’s changed in more ways than that. As you say, ta moko was given and received. Now it’s just taken, by pretty much anyone.

    I was thinking about putting a new Sunday roast on called
    HONE SPIT ROAST with Metiria Turei sauce.
    I took todays special off, 2 weetbix, slice of toast, some jam because Hone said he thought about it first.
