A new name to me on Stuff’s website, Conor Knell, opened his reporting career this week with a spectacular blunder, so;
“When Ricky Mitrov and his wife moved from Hawkes Bay to Dannevirke…”
Conor you goose; Dannevirke is in Hawkes Bay. Indeed I recollect once being the guest speaker for the Hawkes Bay Sportsman of the Year awards, held that year in Dannevirke.
This was a good story ruined reflecting the collapse in print media standards of recent years. That same day’s web-site carried an item from Auckland by Stuff’s Todd Niall and asked in its heading (which Niall was not responsible for) “Who will Wayne Brown turn out to be?”
It’s a bloody tough one to be sure but after considered weighing of this poser my pick is Brown will shock the nation and turn out to be Wayne Brown.
The subdued gloating in a NZ Herald story this week about Stuff undergoing a ”restructuring,” this a euphemism for staff lay-offs, came as no surprise.
