Betteridge's all-you-can-eat buffet

For the benefit of James Landale and other hacks / editors who never got the memo about not writing headlines in the form of a question, here are a few more gratuitous breaches of Betteridge's law, as committed by the New Zealand Herald* and patiently curated by Giovanni Tiso.

Just stop doing it.

* Not that I have any particular beef with NZ journalism in general, given that the kiwi press achieved a respectable 5th place in the 2016 World Press Freedom Index, while British hacks could only manage a lacklustre 38th place.
