The opinions of random twats on the internet isn't news (No offence, fellow twats). Its gossip. If I wanted to know how people feel I'd log onto Facebook or Twitter.

But the sad reality is that our media seems more concerned with writing articles about how people feel on a topic and not dig for news on the topic itself.

Yeah always thought the natural order was people discussing news not news reporting discussions

I believe we have been told on here several times that these types of bludgers are actually paid to "write" these articles.

That said this is the first time I've seen actual screen shots, normally they just repeat them verbatim while pretending it's come from their lazy arses.

Where's the "fuck them" option on the poll.

It's not about things being used, it's about do your own damn research.

Worst thing about this is now I might have to actually read a thread I've been ignoring, and secondly why wasn't bruce front and centre, I heard he rocked on the sale thread.:D

When the union blokes are in the news blabbering about their media platforms its shit that this bidding process is in the news for league. That spokesperson in one of these threads that i am banned from reminds me of a guy, crazy mofo, i knew in aussie who decided to tell his car finance company he couldnt make payments because he was about to launch "an aggressive takeover bid of BHP". What a crack up. Crazy mofo.

Did he manage to buy them out and then make up the repayments on his 120Y.

Must have bought a helicopter, NZ Herald you heard it here first.



I hadn't seen the article till I got home and came on here but the more I think about it, I find it mind boggling these cu**s are that cheeky.
There's a youtube video about the media, and it basically says there was never a golden age of media. It's always been a shit show. But the nature of the shit show has always changed with the years, so it might look like the previous incarnation was much better.. The reality is that it was just as sad, but in a different way.

In short honest media is like the unicorn. It's corny and un-inspiring..... No one really gives a shit about what actually happens. If we did the weather man would be the most hated man in the world, with the amount of fuck ups he delivers on a weekly basis.

Well if I'm honest I fucken hate the muppets that claim to know how to predict the weather, what I do is directly affected by the weather and those cocksuckers make it tough to plan a day with their Throw a Dart at a Wall forecasts.

You all having cheap cracks at Playtheball

It’s so unprofessional...

Journalism is about bringing the real news to the people he said !!

I beg your pardon, what ever do you mean.

That said, I would be interested in his opinion on his lazy arse colleague.

My angst isn't really about @NZ Herald or any mainstream media outlet using forum posts from a public internet site

It's more about the death of legitimate investigative journalism

Back in the day legit journos used to put a lot of time, effort & care into their pieces before actual publication

These days these fuckin hacks just jump online & check Facebook, Twitter, SnapChat or whatever online forum they happen to stumble across & ... Hey Presto ... Let's print it !!!

Do your "job" & do some actual boots on the ground investigative work you lazy fucks

Sensationalism is not actual news ... it's just clickbait cannon fodder for the masses & a shortcut to thinking

To be fair they've been a tabloid for a few years, so they haven't hidden the fact.

Usually I would agree - but the conduct of the people involved in the potential purchase of the Warriors is most definitely newsworthy.
That's fair. I should clarify. I'm not against the media showing Fale or his cohort's posts. Or even ours to give context to his statements. But I do have a problem with journalists using reactions to pad out an articile.

What ___ has said has left people divided
___'s controversial statements have had people talking
___ has recently caused outrage
People aren't too happy with what ___ has said

Until it results in something i.e sponsors leaving, I don't regard any of it as news.
