PICTURED IS NOT PHIL VINE….IS REX FROM ‘TORCHWOOD – MIRACLE DAY’.
IS THAT WHY IT IS CALLED ‘THE DEATH STAR?’
The TVNZ worker impaled when his chair collapsed yesterday is Fair Go reporter Phil Vine.
The experienced journalist was injured after a chair he was sitting on collapsed, leaving him impaled on a piece of wood.
TVNZ have refused to identify him, but confirmed a staff member was hospitalised yesterday after a 10cm piece of wood became lodged in his back and part of his leg.
Network spokeswoman Georgie Hills said this afternoon that the man was receiving medical treatment for his injuries and “recovering well”.
“The staff member involved has requested privacy. TVNZ respects his wishes and will not release further information about his condition or name him,” she said.
“The wellbeing of the staff member is TVNZ’s chief concern.”
A hospital spokesman this morning also refused to release details, saying the patient had requested his information not be released to the media.
The incident happened at TVNZ’s building at the corner of Victoria and Hobson streets in central Auckland around 4pm yesterday.
Vine was taken to Auckland City Hospital.
A journalist of more than 20 years, Vine has worked in some of the most dangerous parts of the world including Afghanistan, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
AND HERE IS MY FAKE PRESS STATEMENT FROM ANDI BOTHERSOME ON THE TOPIC…….
FUCK OFF……LOOK, JUST FUCK OFF…..WHAT, DO YOU THINK I AM HERE TO BE A FUCKING P.R. PERSON? JUST FUCK OFF WANKER.
Alison Mau Confirms What TVNZ Leaked Months Ago To Take The Heat Off Her Unfaithful Husband – She Is Bi-Sexual.
My God, Ali is total class! You may remember that Andi Bothersome, (the worst P.R. flak cunt in the world) leaked Ali’s sexuality to the ‘Herald On Sunday’ to try to distract people from the fact Simon Dallow had been rooting some radio slapper for years – And TVNZ were aware of this…
Well, Alison is the only person to come out of this situation with any class at all, and here is the gaynz.com story about her kinda ‘Coming Out’ on Saturday night………
Speaking on stage moments before announcing the winner of the Queen of the Whole Universe fundraising pageant, Mau, 44, told the packed auditorium at the Aotea Centre that there was “no room in my life for bigotry of any kind and I am proud to be standing amongst the community.”
She then acknowledged her partner Karleen Edmonds who had sat near her through the evening as Mau headed the event’s judging panel, introducing her lover to the audience and saying she was looking “incredibly hot!” The audience erupted into cheers and applause.
Mau clearly had had a rough time at the height of the media speculation. “It was their bringing it up again and again that hurt,” she said. Asked if she felt the newspapers which pursued her had been merely seeking sensational headlines, Mau paused for thought as if choosing her words carefully. “If it had been written up with sensitivity I wouldn’t have minded so much. Then I wouldn’t have felt so much grief.” She says it was unpleasant to be publicly written about in such a “titillating, sniggering” manner.
Now I hope people just leave her and her children alone to get on with their lives.
Her tacky husband with the booze problem really needs to get help quickly.
Well, he is an amazing broadcaster, and just as good as he ever is, so I will just presume the youth obsessed assholes making the decisions at TVNZ have given him the push. Yeah, Kids like jack tame are as good as Kevin Milne, you fucking idiots.
Anyhoo, will be a great loss to TVNZ and TV in general. he is a classy man who seems to have time for everyone. And he has always been so nice to me, even though he knows I really want to root his son.
Thanks for the years, Kevin. Your ‘going’ really is the end of a generation.
