Stuff, owner of our major newspaper chain pulled off a huge scoop last week, leading on their web-site with it.

They described how a Timaru man was upset at Burger King for lifting muffin prices by 30 cents. Accompanying it was a large photo of the disgruntled complainant, unsurprisingly wearing dark glasses.

My God, life’s exciting in Timaru.

POSTSCRIPT – Five days later Stuff proudly informed readers that the old muffin price had been restored.

No doubt about the power of the press in the great issues of our times.
