Stuff-up

Written by 

The Hound is sorry to learn of the imminent demise of rural publications and the journalists covering the sector, given Stuff’s (formerly Fairfax) recent decision to cease publishing its rural titles later this month.

Though they have been rivals of Rural News, your old mate believes the loss of magazines covering NZ’s most important sector is a major kick in the guts to farmers and those with an interest in agribusiness all around the country. Thankfully, the powers-that-be at Rural News Group are committed to publishing papers and a website focussed on the rural sector, so the Hound will be occupying his kennel for many years yet. Meantime, your old mate suggests the decision by Stuff and its bean-counters to can its rural papers and journos can rightly be described as an absolute stuff-up.
