Calypso owners Michael and Anne Wang are to be featured on Campbell Live, as a result of The Devonport Speculator’s article on their ongoing travails with landlord and neighbours.
The Speculator is seeking confirmation of the viewing time, as this can change at the last minute.
We are not entirely happy with Campbell Live featuring the story, as we believe it is a story really only relevant to the community of Devonport, and given it does not represent a national issue of any description, does not warrant national exposure.
Moreover, having had the misfortune of witnessing John Campbell’s appalling journalistic ethics revealed during his “interview” of Ken Ring, The Speculator has little faith that the story will be little more than a salacious expose of what is really a local matter. However, Mihingarangi Forbes, recently renowned for her interview with Alasdair Thompson, is leading the story.
One might think of far more import to the NZ public are the increasingly far-reaching implications of the phone hacking scandal in the UK, President Obama’s battle with the extreme and apparently insane Republican right in the US to avoid a public debt default, or the apparent plans Israeli madman and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has to attack Iran before the end of the year.
Nevertheless, while it might be compared to using a power station to charge a mobile phone, as a result of the programme perhaps someone somewhere will be able to provide some assistance to the Wangs with regard to identifying a viable location for their business.
