Apparently the new deputy chair for NZ On Air is Dr Judith Callingham. NZOA determines the NZ programmes that go to air. So why is a person - who along with husband Brian Edwards - able to provide media advice to the Prime Minister and also determine which programmes air on radio and TV, paid for by your taxes? Is Helen trying to control the media too. Could this be the beginning of the Ministry of Current Affairs - to be announced in the portfolio shake-up?

Didn't you know that is what she does anyway.
we've named TVNZ Helen's Channel.
Have you listened to Kim Hill and Alison Mau gush over her and ask patsy questions?

Journalists, My arse.
They couldn't spell the word let alone know what it means.

And John Campbell is the epitome of investigative
journalism after the Corngate fiasco? Remember,
there is a competitive broadcast television media
market these days. If you don't like TVNZ, change
the channel and see if you like TV3 better.

Or if you want socially conservative correct propaganda, there's always FoxNews (shudder)
on Prime.
