How will we notice the difference?

 

TVNZ could be reduced to idiot box by scrapping charter

Scrapping TVNZ’s charter spells doom for public broadcasting and will relegate the network to idiot box status, critics of the Government’s decision say.

Passing over the irony that this comes from TV3, how will that differ from what we get now?

    The median age of NZers is 36, so there’s a million or two of us in the age group that grew up with TVNZ, po faced newsreaders, weathermen with ties who said “showers” not “showahs”, cheerfully watched westerns and Mission Impossible, Little House on the Prairie, Johnboy Walton, Brian Edwards and Perrigo skewer overseas bigshots in interviews etc..

    How could TVNZ balls up an audience like that?
