People are starting to finally cotton on that going onto the Nation is an exercise in futility. It’s now come to the point that most thinking politicians won’t even go there unless they are pressured to do so by party hierarchy.
But that leaves them with a bit of a conundrum – how to fill a show.
Last week they had wall-to-wall interviews with journalists in the USA about the US elections. Yesterday, they stack a panel with journalists, to be interviewed by journalists.
It’s time The Nation is put out to pasture. There is a difference between “hard hitting but fair” and being tied to a post while getting rocks thrown at you.
Rumour is that the RNZ life-boat will take on Owen next year.
