    Default News sites

    ok was wondering if any one has some good news sites to check out, NZ please, i check out stuff.co.nz for day to day info and sometimes the nz herald.co.nz page, but was wondering if there are any more out there that regularly update the news ? on a day to day basis, even regularly at time when news hits the radio or papers like or net.

    If you follow politics, then www.kiwiblog.co.nz is quite good, and provides very interesting commentary on current events.

    ...and lastly Scoop with it's "social" cuz ScoopIT and I think that about wraps up the online mainstream news sources for NZ. You might also like to check out tweets on Twitter mentioning nz or similar.
