Can TVNZ Just Once Apologise When They Do Stupid Things?

Seemingly no. But imagine if just ONCE when they do another stupid, tacky thing, just apologise. I stopped watching TVNZ news when John Kennedy Junior died and they used the song by Shona Laing as the backing track on the outro played over footage of the plane wreck being hoisted from the sea. I SHIT YOU NOT. It was not that it was tacky, rude, vulgar, gross, ill-advised and lacking in any human decency. It was when I called to complain, and I was laughed off. Granted, I was employed by them at the time and it was a friend working in the newsroom at the time of my complaint so they dismissed my concerns. I found the very idea that that song was appropriate to play showed a complete lack of smarts. And I could not watch their ‘news’ again.
So, the news that 7# played ‘Smack Your Bitch Up’ as the backing track for a story on domestic violence does not surprise me at all……

During a story on staging female abuse in public, Seven Sharp ran the Prodigy song ‘Smack my Bitch up’ as the soundtrack. Cue open shocked mouth look now.


If you watch the channel expect decisions like this to be made. Don’t watch.
What amuses me is the story is totally stolen. Again, it seems the 7pm slot on TVNZ has to steal ideas and stories from other broadcasters. Sad programme.

‘Bunheads’ Starts On NZ TV This Saturday 3pm TV2.


Surely the assholes that programme their now could have found an even worse slot? Oh fuck the. Just watch, the show is great and not exactly what is expected.

And you have need to be interested in ballet, is all about the characters. Watch some of the dances here. And do not miss it.

Sir Ralph Hotere May Meet ‘White Drip’ In Heaven Tweets TVNZ’s Ruth Wynn-Williams.

Prominent New Zealanders, including the country’s highest-paid artist, Ralph Hotere, and some university academics are calling for Holmes’ resignation over his off-the-cuff remarks.


In 2003 Paul Holmes, who is one of the intellectual and ethical minnows who swim in the shallows of NZ public life, described the then UN Secretary General Kofi Annan (from Ghana) as a ‘Cheeky Darkie’. Hotere responded by creating a series of artworks including ‘White Drip to Mister Paul Holmes’.

Tweeted 20 minutes ago……

Ruth Wynn-Williams – From one Sir to another. Perhaps the microphone and the paintbrush will meet again #hotere

and then posted the picture – ”White Drip To Mr Paul Holmes’. as if they shall be having gin slings in ‘heaven’ and talking the old days and their many fun filled days together. MSM really need to stop trying to connect every event that happens in this country to Holmes. Has gone beyond a joke now, to be a total fucking embarrassment.

TVNZ EXECUTIVE ON SEVEN# – ‘Kiwis Want News The Way They Want Their Sex – Short And Punchy’.


TVNZ chief executive and editor-in-chief Kevin Kenrick said he did not think of it as a sacrifice, having less quality to get advertisers dollars. The days when people got most of their news in a six o’clock television fix were gone. “Consumers are looking for short, sharp soundbites. They are looking for a punchy delivery.” After an hour of news at six o’clock, another half hour of conventional current affairs was now too much for most people, he said. “Given that our move is entirely driven around consumers’ behaviour, we think it absolutely in the right territory. We are completely committed to it for the long term.”


What total shite. The problem is they want younger viewers, that is who the advertisers are after. But that age does not watch, nor has ever watched TVONE.
