Another dig at journalists..

Auckland Mayor Dick Hubbard took out an an ad in the Herald today which, as a story, made the front page of the same paper.

Here’s the first line of the article..

“Auckland Mayor Dick Hubbard has spent thousands of dollars of his own money to make an impassioned plea in favour of hefty rate rises in the city.”

"Blah blah news story blah..."

Then at the end,

"Mr Hubbard would not say how much he paid for the advertisement, but agreed it was many thousands of dollars.”

So does this mean that this particular New Zealand Herald journalist is too lazy to walk down to his OWN sales department to ask what a full page ad goes for?
