More Emergency Strategy Meetings

The Colmar Brunton poll will have more than just Labour and the Greens worried. Radio Left Wing and State Television must be wondering what's struck them. Suddenly the Enemy looks set to take over the purse strings.

Watch for a sudden turn away from heavy handed over agressive interviews with Centre Right people as these paragons of jounalistic virtue position themselves to fend off the inevitable cleanout which is coming. You don't need to sell them off. Just clean out the politico board members, cut their funding to the bone and then offer all stations 'charter' money to actually produce some decent, balanced, unbiased news and current affairs programming without bloody commercials.

Adolf, couln't agree more.

On my morning walk, my walking buddy & I talked with glee that one of the first things the Nats would do is sack both Bill Ralston and Ian Fraser. However, we did think Sainsbury does a good job of being professional (not revealing his true colours) although he tried to shut down John Key in the finance leaders debates.

Wouldn't it be great, a world without National Radio and state TV?

But we can keep on dreaming, National will never abolish them. And state media will just kiss Don's feet in the hope he will keep feeding them their outrageous salaries.

Just you wait: of course national will not abolish RNZ.

It will, simply, maximise the return to the taxpayer. That means an unrestricted auction as going concers.

Frankly, I can't wait to see Fox & Fairfax outbidding each other (up to - let's guess 2million; 3millon) for these brands and their spectrum :-)

and then. more tax rebates that I can spend on broadband to listen to Radio Chavez if I want the same slant as radio NZ...
