Four TV networks covered the election results TV1, TV#, Maori, and Radio NZ. How would you rank their presentation?

 

My rankings:

 

First place - TV3, for the most part fast paced, plenty of variety, and a good range of commentators but somewhat repetitive at the end

 

Second place - TV good graphics and set but marred by the constant yap of Mike Hosking who seem to think everyone wanted to hear his opinions on everything and the other players were simply cardboard cutouts.

 

3rd place Maori TV who with limited resources tried to cover a wide territory and make the best of what was a bad night for the Maori Party.

 

Also ran Radio NZ, embarrassing, chaotic at times bad to watch and even worse to listen to.

 

I was surprised by TV3's presentation, it was much better than I anticipated.

 

What is your take?

TV3 was good, as you say fast paced, I felt no bias.

I didn't really watch any of them. Just to snippets to get updates. TV coverage of such events is usually terrible.

I watched a little of the live stream that had 3 Women and a guy on it. I am not sure if that was a TV Networks stream, and I can't recall who it was, but the woman on my left, was so obviously biased toward Labour it really felt like it was Labour paid coverage. She seemed familiar.

 

 

 

Found here. Barry Sopers wife Heather Du Plessis. Awful coverage by her I thought.

Better than watching Matt Mccarten...imo he is a failure at most things.

Most of them had a panel made up of partisan commentators who made no attempt to hide who they supported. It is how they pretend to have balance.

 

E.G RNZ had Russell Norman along with a former National party worker (She had previously done comms work for a few National cabinet members) along with a former Labour worker etc.

 

I think TVNZ had David Cunliffe.
