NZ Herald

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 »

So, no laws broken, no action by authorities, what was Matt Nippert banging on about then?

Matt Nippert, a supposed investigative journalist ran a massive hit job on supposed dirty money in Kiwisaver accounts.

Apparently, there was some sort of moral, possibly illegal investment in some companies he clearly doesn’t like.

Turns out nothing illegal was done, there is no reason why these investments shouldn’t have been made and both the Police and the FMA are taking no action whatsoever.

The Police have released a statement on an investigation into whether the Cluster Munitions Act may have been breached by KiwiSaver fund managers.

“There are significant threshold issues with regard to establishing breaches of the Act, and at this stage there is no evidence to indicate offending,” the Police said.

The investigation was done in conjunction with the Financial Markets Authority.   Read more »

NZ Ferald’s latest project: Is XXX too white?

Is the Olympic Team too white?   That was yesterday.  But let’s keep the theme going for a bit:

Selection_001

Auckland’s diversity not reflected in local government, writes Lincoln Tan.

Auckland may be one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world but nine in 10 elected representatives on the Auckland Council are white, a study has found.

Ethnic minorities are being urged to stand as local body candidates, after AUT University research found the 23 per cent who identify as Asian had just 1 per cent representation on the council.

The study looked at how closely Auckland Council representatives reflected the population, and looked at who stood, and who was elected at the 2013 elections. Read more »
