How the hell could Mike Hosking’s ‘clarification’ be more condescendingly offensive?

I just can’t believe this ‘clarification’ by Mike Hosking for suppressing the voter rights of Maori by saying on live TV that only Maori could vote for the Maori Party.

How someone who is apparently the best broadcaster in the country can communicate something as  ignorant as that on live TV is a mystery wrapped in puzzle stuffed down the exhaust of whatever uber wealthy car he drives.

His “small clarification” however is a fucking marvel to wonder at!

He starts by offending the Maori Party by saying his stamens ‘confused’ them?!?

He confused the entire bloody country!

He then launches into a convoluted explanation that involves how the meaning of his words which only 24 hours earlier were misunderstood by the rest of the country, and that it was all our fault for misunderstanding him.

It’s honestly Trump like in its delusional self narcissism.

So what Mike Hosking is actually saying is that the Maori Party are too stupid to understand his misunderstanding?

How can he moderate the debates when he can’t moderate himself?

I think Mike’s greatest challenge during the debates will be resisting just interviewing himself while Jacinda and Bill clap.

This is some crazy shit.

  1. I too was surprised at the lack of a genuine apology to the Maori Party, and better clarification from Mike Hosking on his confusing and ambiguous comments.

    Mike Hosking should have to have had repeated a genuine apology across a 7 day period at the same time slot so as to ensure that any mislead viewers have been given the opportunity to be informed of the correct situation, and also that Hoskings statements were misleading.

  2. It’s going to get crazier; Hosking should pray that he has a private jet, because when the civil war kicks off he will not get out in one piece unless he does.

  3. TVNZ will not do what needs to be done: replace Mike Hosking with someone more suitable to chair the TVNZ leaders’ debates
    They won’t do it because the choice of Hosking was never about making the best choice of TV personality hosts, it was a political decision based on a collusion between National and TVNZ’s programme directors.
    They won’t do it because it makes the top brass at TVNZ look stupid.
    But it is a double bind for them. The longer they persist with Hosking the stupider they look, but also they know that if they do replace Hosking they will have to deal with a jilted egomaniac who will create all the trouble he can for them.
    Another fine mess TVNZ have got themselves into.

  4. “How can he moderate the debates when he can’t moderate himself”? is the burning question. Hoskings is unfit to front a prime time tv show let alone a crucial election debate.

  5. TV One news and the debates need to be boycotted. I know I will be. It goes without needing to be said that all things Mike Hosking should be boycotted

    • Yes I agree. I certainly won’t watch it and I certainly won’t read the Herald the next day when Fran O’Sullivan says that English won.

  6. So what Mike Hosking is actually saying is that the Maori Party are too stupid to understand his misunderstanding?

    Hoskins is too stupid to realise and accept that he’s wrong.

    It’s the Dunning – Kruger Effect shown in full public view.

  7. We should be wary of the power of wee mike’s influence on the Hoards, the Masses. Look what they achieved in the U$A. All achieved, in fact, with the help of exactly the barrage of logical fallacies and head-fuck trickery that those high sugar diet, instant gratification, Oh ! Look? Rugby! National Party voting ding dongs out there lap up from the utterances coming from the twisted maw of toxic hosking. Logic, common sense and empathy doesn’t win their votes. Stupidity, a liking (addiction) for click bait insto-info salted with the frisson for the promise of societal, vengeance-cruelty is a sure fire winner.
    hosking, et al, have been hard at work, via the corrupt MSM whom they serve so slavishly, to devolve the hoi polloi into a controllable, single syllable, grunter-squeaker thinker and to prove my point? Look around?
    All us change-of-government-for-Gods-sake types should remember, these are strange times.

  9. I didnt hear what the man said because i won’t allow him into my home via tv or any other means.

    Nothing he does or say should surprise anyone and he will be loving the attention and thanks to TVNZ and their commitment to bias right wing broadcasting and paying huge salaries they don’t give a damn about how Horrible Hosking offends people as long as they keep watching and the advertisers keep advertising.

    Maybe things will change with Jacinda mania but i would not bet on it.

  10. When I look at Hosking I wonder “Apart from Donald Trump, have I seen anyone with more delusions of grandeur than Hosking?’
    No, I don’t think so.

  11. Nail him for his words. What he said was,”..you can’t vote for the Maori Party…” That means Party (or List) vote. If it was electorate vote he should have said,”…you can’t vote for the Maori Party Candidate..”
    He didn’t say the word ‘candidate’. That means he was talking about the party vote whether he himself knew it or not.
    It appears he is too thoughtless to understand this himself.

  12. John Cambell would be up to it, right? As for Mike ‘Love Me’ Hosking, he’s long past his use-by date. Get him off air. Permanently.
