New Zealand - leading the world in international reporting?
The front page of the New Zealand Hearld today is wrapped in a story about a dog rescued at sea from an abandoned boat. On closer reading the story reveals that the dog and the rescue of the boat provide a clue in a missing persons investigation and may bring detectives one step closer to finding the owner of the boat. Teribly sad.. tragic and my thoughts are with the the family.
BUT 38 people were killed last night by two suicide bomb attacks on the Russian Metro system. Perspective? The features in the "world section" of the paper (as it should) BUT the story detailing the Moscow bomb blast is almost halfway down the NZherald main web page. HELOOOOOOO????
The New Zealand Herald - there's alot more to it. Obviously just not today.
