Rachel Glucina and David Farrar sharing a joke about poor people.
Heather du Plessis-Allan has turned down TV3’s offer to host their new 7pm show with Duncan Garner so I think management should just go the whole hog and appoint Rachel Glucina to work as Duncan’s co-anchor.
If TV3 are trying to imitate the hate crime against public broadcasting that is ‘Seven Sharp’, then they may as well be totally open to being as sycophantic as ‘Seven Sharp’ and put Rachel in there. She pretends to be a PR person, so she may as well pretend to be a broadcaster as well.
If TV3 were serious about trying to get back their credibility they would put the incredibly talented Paula Penfold in the role, but I fear that’s not what they are aiming for.
My God TV broadcasting has become a ruined nightmare under a Government that wants the people distracted rather than informed.
BREAKING NEWS: Heather has said YES to MediaWorks and will be joining Garner. They obviously REALLY needed her for credibilities sake. Unfortunately the comments from Duncan sounds like the show will be awful…
“’I see this as a great chance to be part of a programme that will reflect our country and our lives – no matter where we live. I expect us to have fun, to laugh, to entertain and to tell your stories,” Duncan Garner says.
If I want fun, laughter and entertainment I’ll read NZ Herald editorials, but I’m not looking for a comedy show at 7pm, I’m looking for some actual journalism. Sounds like ‘Story’ will be as vapid as Seven Sharp.
The big question now is what will happen to poor Rachel?
