SST online edition three weeks out of date

November 11th, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

Is abandoning having online editions of its Sunday newspapers? Previously it was mainly the Sunday News that was embarrassingly out of date, but now it is the Sunday Star-Times also.

The lead story on the SST home page is from three weeks ago. The most recent column is from five weeks ago.

Under latest edition, there are some sports stories from today, but none of them are on the homepage. The most recent non sports story is two weeks old.

Now many of the SST stories are on the Stuff website main page, which is good. But what is the point of having a homepage for the newspaper itself if they are not there also? Fairfax, in my opinion, either needs to drop having the SST as a separate sub-site within Stuff, or they need to keep it up to date.

    It’s no loss. The SST is rubbish. I cancelled my print edition some time ago after I eventually could no longer tolerate its steady decline in quality and thus value. I don’t miss it and find better source of news and analysis elsewhere.

    Stopped SST a year ago so no great surprise or loss.
    Am only amazed that they are still in business – not for longer.
    But the Herald has taken over dumb spot – still using “Ambrose Utu” against Government, and Key in particular – they are determined to get Key poppied off along with the other media sources like RNZ.

    Commie Key picking winners again.

    No problem, my subscription to the Sunday Star Times is up for renewal in a month, won’t renew it. It has come to contain the most egregious tripe over the last year or so.

    @ SPC – the lead story already is.

    @ DPF – this is not a new phenomenon; I blogged about it on 1 July 2012, and nothing has changed since
