    Don't feel the need to pay for NZHerald but does have some good articles.
    Hard to get balanced reporting that isn't click bait.
    We read The Herald every day for free. Don't understand why you would pay for it.

    BBC, NPR, Newshub, RNZ, Stuff, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, all free.
    If you want to see a graph on what some think are neutral sites with varying degrees of news-depth, try looking at this - https://www.adfontesmedia.com/static-mbc/

    No.
    They altered their paywall. Of course then, the extension writers alter their extension.
    And so it goes with ALL code on the net or off. (Which is why MSupdates are somewhat more to push their product than of much help in malware)

    Seems he didn't bother so much with the Firefox one though, hence Chrome.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Well, we just read the headlines and the occasional article, but not the full Herald.
