Patrick Gower steps down as Newshub’s political editor
Patrick Gower is stepping down as Newshub’s political editor at the end of the year.
“The theme of politics this year has undoubtedly been ‘change’. It is time for a change for me. I’ve had a good run,” Gower told Newshub.
He will move to a new role of National Correspondent next year.
Gower has worked in the parliamentary press gallery for 10 years, eight of those with 3 News and Newshub, the past five as political editor.
…Patrick Gower isn’t so much a journalist as he is a barking dog that chases every stationary car he can see. I enjoy watching his work for the pure bloodsport element, when his eyes roll into the back of his head as he starts his death spin on whatever unfortunate soul has been stupid enough to be interviewed by him, you watch with all the excitement of a really gruesome snuff movie.
The homicidal chipmunk of NZ current affairs represents the mixed martial arts of journalism.
As an agent of the fourth state that holds the powerful to account, he is devoid of any credibility, value or character for any progressive voter.
Paddy is to journalism what Trump is to journalism. Gower is a sadistic gladiator pretending to be a surgeon whose service is to his own brand of ego promotion than insightful broadcaster.
He’s being moved along because he probably has very few contacts within the Left to be able to have any real view of what’s happening and he probably costs the network a small fortune and as broadcast TV is getting mauled…
…the network want to use him beyond politics to justify paying him.
Paddy stepping down as Political Editor is like losing a villain in a zombie apocalypse TV series, you miss him because he was so good at being so bad.
Here’s to you Paddy…
