And now they come for the last decent current affairs show in NZ…
TV3 bosses have told Campbell Live staff the channel is thinking of canning the current affairs show for a daily version of the Jono and Ben entertainment show.
…replacing Campbell Live – one of the few TV shows that holds the powerful to account with Jono and Ben?
How book burning is that?
And why are TV3 killing off Campbell Live?
Hooton is suggesting they will kill off Campbell Live because it’s too anti-government???
Who would have held Key accountable on mass surveillance? Who would have held the Government accountable on the Christchurch Earthquakes? Who would hold the powerful to account for child poverty?
Campbell Live raised over a million for children in poverty, Mike Hosking on Seven Sharp tells poor people not to have children if they can’t afford them.
Are you just going to sit there and let them do this NZ?
If TV3 no longer intend to be a genuine member of the Fourth Estate, in that they provide a platform where the powerful can be held to account, then why do we allow this foreign owned media company so many frequencies and so much power in the NZ media landscape?
We must rally for Campbell Live the way Campbell Live have rallied for us. Join the ‘Save Campbell Live’ Facebook site NOW and send a message to TV3 that this is not acceptable.
