    Default NZ Herald

    NZ Herald has once again 'un-blocked' NZHerald bypass.

    Not going to pay to read their 'news'. they are copying from other sources, anyway.

    Don't bother with the Herald at all for a long time now, plenty of other sources for news.

    Guess they have to make money somehow (online).

    Much of the online news has become garbage click bait anyway, with 90% of their content staying up and unchanged for a week at a time (rather than the daily large update you'd expect of a new org). I find the bigger issue is learning what to ignore.
    I dropped the Herald when they instigated their paywall, and haven't missed it a bit.

    Stuff is little better wrt copy/paste reporting, and whomever is doing the work seems to have little appreciation of grammar as well.

    Just checked today that NZHerald Bypass has fixed it after updating.

    What amuses me about Granny Herald is that they offer you access to what they call Premium Journalism (or something equally risible) on payment of a fee. However, their resident dog whistlers and National cheerleaders, Hosking, Hawkesby, Soper, Du Plessi-Allan, are all free - ergo even the Herald does not consider them to merit the term Premium Journalism!

    It must have been a terrible dilemma for the Herald owners - do we include our primary dog whistlers in Premium Journalism and thereby mute their National Party propaganda, or do we consider them to be non-Premium and keep them in the view of the non-paying hoi polloi! My heart bleeds for them.

    So officially then the main "journalists" for the Herald are not premium quality.

    Probably easier to find a Unicorn than a premium journalist!
