    Hi can you please call me regarding a job interview? I too myself find it incredibly easy to browse forums for news and then badly copy and paste everything into a so called "news article" therefore I feel I would be a good candidate for the job.

    Thanks.

    Mancubus should start bloody getting some $$$ if these news sites keep taking his picture and not giving him the credit. But Jesus Christ how easy is it to be a journalist trawl forums and social media rehash the article collect a pay check every week. They hardly have to do anything these days except rehash other people's articles.

    They also have to be able to use incorrect punctuation and grammar and have the ability to ignore spell check warnings before publishing. That takes some skill if you are a writer.

    Yep I swear the stuff doesnt get proof read and they do the word spell checker then submit it online. I see mistakes every single day multiple times on stuff and the nz herald it's a joke.

    And at not one stage have I said it was my picture. My friend took it, I was approx 500km away at the time.

    Crazy. At least the Herald asked permission.

    Hah I was reading it on Stuff and then came straight to GP! LOL at the Dailymail story!

    The fisherman, whose Reddit name is Mancubus, was probably pretty chuffed with his catch and daydreaming about a fish and chip dinner, with the shark firmly on the end of the line.
    AWESOME!

    She's pissing herself laughing about it all. Quite chuffed actually. She's posting all the links on FB.

    They need to be careful or they'll be sucked into the seedy world of the "vile web diary".

    Worse still... Stuff credits reddit with the post:


    At least, in the burglary thread, Hana from NZHerald linked the thread and credited GP as the source.

    The larger shark, also a Great White, had obviously decided he'd be the one to gobble the fish up.
    jaws all the way.
