Big ups to Maori TV on this  as it must have been hard to do this kind of investigation. Is this a coming of age for us all.

This thread isn't about the accusations as that has , as yet, to properly investifgated so lets not be judge , jury and executioner. 



""Mihingarangi Forbes led the investigation and fielded much of the criticism when the first two parts of the story were shown.

 

 

When you’re Maori, everyone’s part of Kohanga,” Forbes said. “Kohanga is something we’ve all grown up with and know and love and respect for over 30 years.”

 

 

In Maoridom the usual six degrees of separation was “more like one degree” and with it came pressure.

 

“We all got emails and calls saying ‘just leave it alone’ and ‘Why is a Maori organisation investigating another Maori organisation?’ We should be able to put the microscope on our own.”

 

One of the first complaints was from the Kohanga Reo board and was directed, unusually, to the board members of Maori TV, Forbes said.

 

Forbes said luckily Maori Television editor-in-chief Jim Mather rejected the high-level approach and pointed out there were formal avenues through which to pursue a grievance."

I'm not sure it's a coming of age for me. 

Or indeed, anything at all for me.

I think it is a manifestation that investigative journalism is one of those good ideas that keeps coming back in different forms.




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

I think the whole debacle is shameful.

Using a card specifically for Kohanga related expenses for anything personal, regardless of if the money is paid back should result in instant dismissal or removal of privileges.

Personal Loans? Are you serious?

Attempting to block a release of an investigative piece into such activities through the courts is as good as an admission of guilt. I don't care if the parties involved are pakeha, maori or badgers - they deserve to get slammed with a ton of bricks.

Good job Maori TV.

Geektastic: I'm not sure it's a coming of age for me.

bad choice of words


I suppose what interests me the most is that Maori investigating Maori, yes it could have been Labour investigating Labour etc but in this case it isn't. 

I'm really impressed with Maori TV I think they do a great job.
