    Now it’s Saturday, it’s the day of the big fat news paper. with all the big celebrity opinions:

    But there is one crucial thing they really needed to do. Labour should have told the parents of the alleged victims. If I was the father I’d be furious. But apparently the victim has that right to privacy. The parents deserved to know to help make the best decision for their teenager

    The self styled, top of the pops journalist, also has an opinion about all the alcoholism slouching around all over the ruling liberal middle class, in my opinion.

    Ive tried pulling out the iPhone, instead of a cigarette, but it’s unsatisfactory.

    There's an app for that. Well, sort of.

    He’s dyslexic, and he knows that this big public display of news paper reading, is theatre.

    I once saw a woman in an outdoor cafe drawing in a sketchbook. She quickly spotted me pretending not to look and, to my surprise, proudly held up her work for my perusal. That's when the real surprise kicked in. She'd produced a head and shoulders portrait of a German shepherd in finely rendered blue ball point. Instead of drawing from life she was working from memory.

    I must have paid her work a suitable compliment, because she went on to flip through her sketchbook to reveal a whole bunch of earlier variations on the same picture. "I think they're the only breed that really look like dogs, don't you?" she said, smiling proudly.

    That’s one of the problems with the iPhone. There’s no meaningful lasers to burn things with. It's all just 'virtual reality' smokes and mirrors.

    The poison is posted (some of it vile), and then deleted (moderation seems to be random, and certainly late). And then suddenly – the piece is no longer open for comments at all (not just closed, the comments simply disappear, as if they were never there).

    Stuff have done it again, with the Israel Folau story. Harvest the homophobes for a couple of hours, then suddenly - delete all.

    As I said before, this is not just the usual online platform for nastiness, justified in the name of free speech. The speech simply disappears - but only after the damage has been done. It can't be rebutted, it was "never there". Except, it was.

    Horrible, irresponsible, and Stuff should bloody well be explaining why they do it.

    Does anyone know when The Press is going tabloid format/size?
    All I can find is a vague 'mid 2018'.

    Kinda like this 'balanced piece' from Tracy Watkins:
    Govt needs to bridge Simon's well-built cross - (or something like that):
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/102898022/govt-needs-to-cross-simons-wellbuilt-bridge
    ...they closed comments on this after 3 hours and a mere 35 comments - why bother?

  • steven crawford,

    Live from me reading the news print at Midnight espresso: ” Trump’s Twitter feed has more followers than American newspapers have subscribers in total."

    There’s good reasons for having real news papers, the news literally jumps up of the pages in 3D.
