7 Sharp

I see The Herald is touting for John Campbell and Hilary Barry to take over from Mike Hosking and Toni Street. mrspdm and I want to let TVNZ know that if John Campbell in particular gets anywhere near that show we will be changing channels at 7pm every night. I am only a sometimes watcher of 7 sharp, working three evenings a week but, mrspdm has been a regular watcher since Hosking joined the show. We both enjoy listening to him from 6am in the mornings where his editorial comments usually reconcile with our views - particularly where they relate to the current Government.

Looks like the 7 Sharp Ratings will go down the toilet again. The last thing the country needs is Campbell back on the screen at prime time. Leave him on National Radio where his left wing socialist views are in sync with the rest of the team there.

Barry said...

No, please DON'T leave him on RNZ National - because there he's on the taxpayers' payroll!

I once started to watch Seven Sharp the experience set me thinking, don't think I have watched TV at all since then.

Not sure TVNZ would give a rat's about a sherry soaked OAP from Akaroa.

Jacinda's Aunty- you are like your PM niece - haven't a bloody clue what you are going on about. I am not even in the same Island as Akaroa.

BTW slandering blog hosts is a risky business and could lead to banning.

pdm, she might have got you mixed up with that fine upstanding gentleman from down that way who comments on here from time to time.
Obviously from way up north who doesn't know her north from her south!

pdm said...

Maybe Seabird - it is impossible to know how they think - if they think at all.

A different planet perhaps.

Fucking eejits thinking anyone cares what they watch.

That says it all. If you only watch or read media that caters to whatever prejudices you hold then you are guilty of self censorship and are less informed on the big picture.......Try reading stuff outside your comfort zone.

The fact that you answer a disruptor troll (JA) makes my point.

I gave up watching early in it's history..
Got sick of the patronising, pontificating speils by both presenters at the end of the programme.

pdm said...

I am going to answer your trolling too Egbut.

I would and do happily listen to Chris Trotter as well as Josie Pagani and a few other lefties and respect their views.

However the arrogance and smarmy demeanour of Campbell is an absolute turn off - I do not like Paul Henry for exactly the same reason and he is of the right.

So that makes 1900 time to go do something productive.
