Herald imitates The Onion

The Onion is famous for its satirical news coverage where it breathlessly reports on mundane events.

The seems to have given up on real news, and is now turning into a non funny version of The Onion with its story on a lawyer doing a restaurant review.

Every day millions of people review a product or service online. A negative review on a restaurant is not news.

But not only does the NZ Herald think this is news, it made it a major Page 3 story.

No wonder circulation dropped 7.8% in the last year.
