Dear TVNZ - I don't want to be 'close up' with Paul Henry, I want that racist clown very, very, very far away from me
So Paul Henry is so racist, he can't even make it in Australian Breakfast TV, no fear, TVNZ in a move so low it's sub-gutter will warmly welcome him back to 7pm.
Can we remove the pretense that TVNZ are a public broadcaster now? Espousing racism, sexism and the ability to offend as many minorities in a single episode as possible isn't so much public broadcasting as it is hate mongering.
The new show name ideas being considered at the moment are, 'The Burning Cross of Truth', 'No more Darkie Malarky at 7' and 'I love John Key weeknights'.
We all know what is going to happen here. TVNZ won't be able to manage him again and he will end up saying something so racist or sexist or homophobic that we all gasp while he's screaming that we don't have a sense of humour.
Just because he does a really unfunny game show on TV3 doesn't mean he still isn't the grand cyclops of NZ broadcasting, just in time to replace Paul Holmes.
Whaleoil at Truth, Paul Henry back on TV & the National Party Chief of staff appointed to TVNZ- ladies and gentlemen, I give you the 3 horsemen of the media apocalypse.
The 4th horsemen would be Joise Pagani and Jane Clifton teaming up to editors of The Listener.
For those who will gag at the thought of Paul Henry at 7, I'll have some great news to announce shortly where you will have a choice of who you want to watch at 7 for your current affairs on a nationwide TV signal.
