Martyn Bradbury has devised a cunning strategy to keep TVNZ7 on the air.

I have been hosting these save TVNZ7 meetings all across the country and what amazes me is the genuine fury by so many at these meetings at the decision to close TVNZ7, and they demand a strategy to stop it. They like what the other political parties have to say on their new and sudden commitment to fully fund public broadcasting but they want a strategy that stops the death of TVNZ7 now, not by 2014.

So here is the strategy. There is no point attacking the Government, public broadcasting is as high on National’s agenda as Republicanism is on Labour’s, and when you watch the last Backbenches in Auckland and Nikki Kaye’s whipping, you clearly see why National want to kill off critical media. National like soft media, like the morning madhouse on the Edge, or Sports Talk Radio, or ZB, or Michael Laws – they don’t like public broadcasting so appealing to them is as pointless as praying for divine intervention.
