The NATION - 32 620
Someone from the PR department finally got back to me to tell me that The Nation's season was over (brilliant PR). It will be interesting to see if NZ on Air will fund them next year and if the NZoA demands that The Nation will only get funding if Paul Holmes is the host are true???
I'm shocked and surprised that my invite to their end of year party seems to have been lost in the mail by The Nation.
It's the wrap up panel show with that right wing female political commentator (I forget her name, she's awful), Mike from Labour and Catherine from National. Paul Holmes has been given a pair of red glasses to make him look younger and less right wing than his Union bashing this year would suggest.
Paul says we are not angry in NZ - bullshit. NZ is angry, it's just not represented by your TV channel!!! TVNZ spends more time on Paul the psychic octopus than any real examination of this right wing Government.
Although half of NZ say they are worse off because of the GST rise, Paul shrugs and says it don't mean jack shit. His wealthy arrogance is the sort of hubris the Government are in danger of.
They give Simon Power a fucking pat on the back with his conveyor belt of cheap justice and pushing for these new surveillance powers - unbelievable!
They are pretending this Government are not radical, hilarious. Jesus i forget how blind the corporate media are.
What a crap wrap up year show - btw the War on News will wrap the year with an awards show, 10.30pm 28th December and Citizen A will wrap the year with a panel predictions show on the 30th December at 7pm.
