Looks like readers are going to better sources of news


Apt avatar you have there Tim.

I recently answered an email interview from the NZ Herald.  One of the questions was along the lines of “Why do you seem to hate the NZ Herald so much?”  

I guess I could have kept the answer simpler by going “just going with the crowd”.

Jokes aside, their Board needs to have a look at dropping subscription figures and the Herald Online now getting its arse handed to it by Stuff/Fairfax.

And as print is on the way out, they really need to be worried about losing ground online as well.

But isn’t it amusing that the same media outlet that beats politicians around the ears because the latest Poll dropped a political party by 2% comes out of the blocks saying the web stats are but a one-off aberration.

A rogue poll, if you like.

If it happens two times in a row, can we officially state that the NZ Herald is in recession?
