Any excuse to moan about that publication... Hat-tip, Mr Bhatnagar for HOT GOSSIP P.A. link about disaffected writers at The Unmentionable Daily. NZH's 'premium' wordsmiths unhappy in the new commercial environment. Holy schadenfreude, Batman - I'm havin' a ball! (w/apologies & condolences to signatories G. George & C. James - whose columns I actually enjoyed).
To be perfectly magnanimous, I'm somewhat sympathetic to the freelancers feeling ripped-off by Herald management. Still, re copyright laws: shoulda read the fineprint! Whadda sad mess. Couldnt'a happened to a nicer paper :-)
It just gets better... Over at TV One, Susan Woods mopes to ERA about how stress of being underpaid only $350K made her shout at the kiddies. Poor little rich girl. (My mum use to do it to us for far less)
Couldn't agree more... "The TVNZ board should be sacked," says National, sticking the boot in over current fracas. Isn't it great to have a Real Opposition again?
