Waikato Times letter of the week #58

This is from the 23 April edition.
Campbell the best
Which path are New Zealand TV programmes taking? Campbell Live is one of the good programmes people like to watch in their TV.
There are very good questions put to the political leaders and others. Campbell does lots of research, investigates and then produces the programme and he is quick to put the next question depending on the answer he gets.
A few years ago, when Helen Clark was standing for a second term, there was a very good debate and Campbell had some well researched questions, which became a big story at that time.
Even just before the last general election, Campbell put hard questions to John Key. Viewers are well aware of all those questions and the answers they heard on TV. Is there a political reason as to why they want to get rid of this highly popular Campbell Live programme?
What other good programmes do you get in TV, other than violence and murder?
In 1990s, we were able to watch all cricket matches on TV. Now that has disappeared. In all other cricket-playing countries, all the world cup matches were on TV and everyone had the opportunity to view them live, the same as Campbell Live.
Even Radio Sports failed to broadcast all the cricket matches played in Australia and New Zealand.
Let Campbell Live continue for the benefit of all New Zealanders.

As always, spelling, punctuation, grammar and logic are exactly as printed in the Waikato Times.

You have to admire the segue in and out of cricket broadcasts!
