What do you guys think of Paul Henry?
We have been watching him on the interweb since we were there in May.

A grumpy talk/news show on TV3 in New Zealand.
It is really a pretty interesting show because he gets the real guys on all the time. (MPs, the PM, mayors of the various cites and other public officials)

I was just not sure what the Kiwis thought.

He's just another loudmouthed talking head. Think of him as NZ's answer to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and you will have the general idea.

I find it interesting that he has no problem getting the mayor of Auckland, MPs and even the PM on the show regularly. That seems to set him apart from Rush.

I don't personally have a problem with the guy, he actually goes where other interviewers don't in this country and doesn't ask "soft-ball" questions.
Sure he's not very well liked over here, but I would hardly call him loud-mouthed.

I don't want to get into the politics. I just find the show interesting because of the wide range of topics he covers and the people he gets to come on the show. John Key seems to be on there once a week. I can't imagine any of our people getting Obama or anyone from congress to sit down for that kind of interview
I prefer the CNN world addition to the US version too.

BTW vote me with keep the old flag, although it is none of my business ;-)
