What the bloody hell is going on at The AM Show?
After getting heavily criticised by the entire news media establishment for deciding to ban Winston for being 3 minutes late to his live cross, The AM Show this morning said they had decided after being so petulant, to magnanimously offer him the slot back.
Winston predictably told The AM Show to go stick it, so what did The AM Show do? They detailed with the awful Tova O’Brien the other interview Winston would be doing, which was an Australian interview and then they went on and on about Winston deciding to talk to Australians and not NZers.
What is going on here? Are they really this childish or are they desperately trying to get attention?
Are the ratings really diving this low?
The AM Show were the ones who banned Winston and now they are sticking it to him by trying to embarrass him for not coming back???
I’ve never understood the appeal of Duncan Garner, he’s just not very good. I’ve rarely seen him provide insight and there are times I just don’t think he understands the political issues he’s debating.
He can do a good interview, I’ve seen him, but its rare.
Mark is Mark, if Duncan was quicker he could allow Mark to do his thing and challenge him more to make it less a one sided rant and more a banter.
Breakfast should set the news agenda for the day and provide copy for mid morning, but there is nothing to recycle here.
The AM Show is the intellectual equivalent of having a mince pie and coke for breakfast. It’s a wasted opportunity, and surely the Executives at Newshub should be considering a replacement show.
