One of the problems of having a right wing mainstream media that has simply become an echo chamber for the hosts’s ego is that when the host goes up against someone on the Left who actually knows their stuff, they get ripped to shreds.
Jane destroys Mike Hosking and he comes across like a spoilt talkback host who only ever speaks with people who agree with him.
For me, this interview that has the 7pm host of the State Broadcaster destroyed in less than 10 minutes highlights all that is currently wrong with political shows in NZ. The lack of diversity within the panel shows and guests invited onto these shows leads to unchallenged myths accepted as fact.
Progressive voices that actually challenge the status quo are rarely seen on TV in NZ, yet the issues being debated are far more important than the over paid hosts opinion.
