NZ Herald To Go Behind Paywall
New Zealand Herald editor Shayne Currie, told ATV3 television on Saturday, “We can’t go on the way we are at the moment.”
He said there had to be some monetisation of the internet to fund journalism, and the New York Times model probably worked the best of all.
That model allows readers to get a small number of stories free before they must pay to access more, but gives free access to print subscribers.
“I see it (a paywall) as inevitable,” Mr Currie said.
I just cannot believe that the owners of the Herald are so out of touch with public opinion that they believe the paywall model will work.
Are Mr Currie and his management team really that ignorant of the widespread contempt that exists for the mainstream media?
Do they not know just how fed up they public are with a diet of lies and distortions and exaggerations and deliberate omissions all designed to progress the Progressive/ Liberal agenda?
Do they not know that most reporters working in mainstream media today are widely reviled as liars and political agents who seek to avoid their traditional role of providing objective news and instead shade and shape and massage and adjust every story out there so that it furthers the liberal social political plan??
This gang of crooks and liars and phoneys and cheats now expect me to pay for the privilege of having my intelligence abused by such a collection of miscreants.?????
Those fresh from uni half educated well indoctrinated watermelon worshipping tyros, or the braindead extreme left Marxist propagandists from previous generations have nothing for me, and I have nothing for them but utter contempt, derision and mistrust.
Good luck with your paywall scumbags. But I will tell you right now, it won’t stop the collapse of the media industry.
A return to traditional objective reporting and a balanced opinion section.
However, with such out of touch management so obsessively dedicated to the pursuance of the liberal political agenda there’s Buckley’s chance of that.
Frankly, I just can’t wait for them to go down. The sooner the better, and the paywall will do a lot to hasten their demise. So get on with it you dinosauric liberal losers. Put up the paywall.
Make my day.
