  • Alfie,

    In today's Herald, John Drinnan sums up TV3's 7pm ballsup and their latest bright idea to use Heather du Plessis-Allan and Duncan Garner in that slot.

    More interesting to me is the Herald poll running alongside that story. At the time of writing the most popular option by a long way is "Bring back John Campbell and Campbell Live." Damn right!

  • Sacha,

    Regan Cunliffe argues cogently that Garner is a strange choice given his previous performance for TV3.

    the new current affairs show called Story

    A title not necessarily prioritising fact over fiction.

  • Rob S,

    Oh to be a fly on the wall at TV3.
    Hunter S Thompson comes to mind,
    " a cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason".
    Mark Weldon sitting in a plush chair muttering what the fuck to himself as Julie Christie stirs around out of her depth turning gold into shit. Usually the other way round for her.
    Farce and tragedy with money being pissed up a wall.
    They deserve all that they get. They went into this wide eyed with a ruthless attitude.
    A pox on them and there ambitions whatever they in fact are.
    As to the owners one wonders what is going through their minds at this moment, how much patience and money do they have?
    Apologies for spleen vent.

  • Steve Barnes,

    I just discovered this little site that will be so useful to "churnalists" of the calibre that are being foisted on us at an alarming rate. It is, aptly, called... wait for it...
    Muck Rack.... I kid you not.
    How long before we see the headline... "Rachel Glucoma, Muck Raker of the year"
    The cynicism, it burns.
