There is a God!

Thank God Mark Sainsbury will be fronting Close Up and not the crazily right wing Paul Henry, the good lord only knows what Paul would have done in the position, reports on how global warming is a myth, that white men with more than 5 cars should get tax cuts or some interview with the American Ambassador where Paul apologises for all the NZ riff raff attacking President Bush. Not that I watch Close UP of course, it’s an appalling program, but I can sleep a little easier knowing the masses aren’t wallowing around in right wing rhetoric.

Sainsbury to head Close Up
Mark Sainsbury has been named the new host for current affairs programme Close-Up, beating out Television New Zealand (TVNZ) colleague Paul Henry for the role. The position was made vacant after host Susan Wood unexpectedly resigned on December 4 following a cancer scare. Sainsbury had been support host, alongside Wood. TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Bill Ralston said he was delighted to have a journalist of Sainsbury's ability and experience at the helm of Close Up.

That's awesome news. I wanted to punch his face in for what he did to Javed Khan- the president of NZ Islamic Association- when he was being interviewed on the Muhammad cartoons. He wouldn't even let him speak and was completely unprofessional by attacking him. It was equivalent to anyone being interviewed on Foxnews that happened to not have a conservative outlook. The point of an interview is to extract as much relevant information as possible. Not slander, and approach it with your own damn views.

Paul Henry is one of my favorite TV personalities. Don’t have problem with someone who has 5 cars and respect him for defending great American patriot George Bush. It was disappointment to find out that Mark Sainsbury is taking over. But prefer him over blonde bimbo Susan Wood.

Just need to figure out away of removing John Campbell from TV3 and replacing him with someone who is not so liberal. Bring back Leighton Smith!!!

Apparently I need to own 5 cars to get some tax relief, so if you please - Advocatus Diaboldi, could you make some financial forecasts so I can do the opposite and make some dosh to get my next 4 cars???
You're just like Don Brash! Say one thing and miraculously the opposite happens! Amazing comments!

I presume Bomber's post was a pisstake. Can you imagine a current affairs show being hosted by a right winger instead of the usual left wingers? The NZ public simply couldn't handle it.

Neverhave liked Sainsbury but AMEN for the denial of that dickhead Henry. I watch him every morning on breakfast before i head off to school and he is just terribly right winged is he not?? He openly admits to been a rich snob who couldnt live without his cars and bullshit. He also comes across as a pretty rude man towards his co-host Kate, doesnt seem to be a character hes putting on because hes also quite synical on RadioLive.

Mark we do have a show fronted by right wingers...its called ONE NEWS! According to them they were voted best news network...wank wank
