Quote of the Day

Lovely bit of wisdom from today’s Thoughts on the death of newspapers post:

I banned [the] NZ Herald from our house long ago.

I consider it is better to be uninformed than misinformed.

    I disagree – I think it’s better to be aware of what agendas are being pushed, by whom and for what reason, than to pull the covers over my head just because I don’t believe or disagree with something.

    Rather than saying “I don’t like that dish so I won’t eat anything” isn’t it better to say “let’s look at all the dishes to find something I like. (burp)”

      He has looked at the dishes, and found WhaleOil to suit his tastes.

      Personally, reading The Herald makes me angry, so I just don’t.
