    Just like all such hack journos, eh?

    Never let the facts get in the way of a tall tale story.

    I also sent my letter on 'Long Term Tenancies' directly to Rudman.
    No response or acknowledgement.

    Excellent. I thought it was a great letter and I for one was not aware of the German situation regarding the conditions placed on long term tenancies. I notice Rudman is now taking a swing at Andrew King of NZ Property Investors Federation taking his comments suggesting tenants be given an electricity subsidy from the government so they could warm their homes out of context. The context being that even with insulated houses ,its useless if the tenant cannot afford electricity.

    Another Herald lefty - aren't they all - and regular columnist, John Roughan recently suggested that the government remove landlords tax deductions for mortgage interest accrued on rentals!

    Are they journos or opinionists?
    I thought all these people (Rudman, Roughan etc) were just writing opinion pieces - like us but get theirs in the paper and are paid.

    You're probably right. The Gramsci "march through the institutions" thing.

    Or maybe it falls into the category of opinion masquerading as fact?

    Or even fake news?

    Just an opinion - they get paid, you don't. I apply the same weight to both (and all other opinions (do your own research is the modis operandi)

    Why are all their opinions almost always the same? Leftist , softly softly socialist drivel .I'm sure the powers that be at the Herald and media in general are instructed to employ only such people with the left leaning margin .Perfect propaganda tool for the socialist narrative that continually talks about ""collective responsibility"" for anything and everything as opposed to ""individual responsibility"".

    You could be correct.
    Newpapers tend to have a bias left or right (depending on the paper).
    Newspapers aren't such a perfect tool anymore with social media taking over.
    At least the newspaper columists do some thinking rather than the self opinionated, un-thought drivel I see from most social media.

    The old adage applies - believe half of what you see and none of what you hear (or read). (Or something like that but I'm sure you get the point.)

    I always thought the Herald to be celebrity focused and keen on sensationalist news. So when Key was the PM it was all over him, now Jacinda has the star power.
