The Herald goes totally tabloid


Shock! Horror! A disastrous earthquake!  

North Island? South Island? The big one’s finally hit Wellington? 

No.  It’s in VANUATU, for god’s sake!!  There apparently wasn’t much damage and no-one was hurt. 

So what does the Herald do? Puts a great, blazing, misleading headline up to sell a few papers on the street. 

This was once a serious newspaper. Now it’s just a tabloid rag.

  1. Agreed. That made me roll my eyes this morning.

  2. Yes JC i read that article this morning and was completely shocked!!!

    that so disrespectable to people in vanuatu and completely misleading!!…

  3. perhaps the herald had a premonition.
    could this-quite seriously- be related to our terrible earthquake?
