Kiwi goes to taping of Daily Show: we’re all very proud
WARNING - CULTURAL CRINGE
Quake bill $6 billion, “Monday’s quakes may have added as much as $6 billion in new damage.” You would think stuff.co.nz would make the impact of this week’s earthquakes their lead story/image - but oh no.
Jon Stewart mentioned NZ in his opening for the Daily Show. That’s right, NZ politics was mentioned on American TV - OH MY GOD….
Interestingly, the Herald doesn’t mention it. Maybe we’re seeing the difference between a ‘news’ website vs a website for an actual hard copy newspaper.. The rubbish stuff has on their homepage almost undermines them as a news source (everyone remembers the barking missionary). They obviously believe they have to focus on the trivial for page hits. I wonder why they bother doing straight news at all?
