Resigned?? He was kicked, and rightly so!

Good riddance, there's no place in public broadcasting for a presenter who cannot control his mouth or his prejudices, and we can do without him on our payroll. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:

To make a joke and laugh is one thing.

Paul, kept on repeating the same sick line time after time. He didn't know when to stop.

He was like a dirty little school boy who had just found out that his weannie wasn't just for pissing out of - he kept on playing with it.

Good riddance to bad crap I say.

TV3 won't want him. Nor will Prime.

My hope is that he will cross the Tasman and get lost in the outback.

Paul Henry may return - CEO Mon, 11 Oct 2010 5:02a.m.

“I would hope that we are a forgiving society and that over time, time will heal and that ultimately we may see Paul on our screens again,” said Mr Ellis on TVNZ 7 news. More here (http://www.3news.co.nz/Paul-Henry-may-return---CEO/tabid/423/articleID/180673/Default.aspx)

If I had my choice we'd have the breakfast crew from TV3 instead.

Without Henry, and the pending loss of Pippa due to her pregnancy we may find the TV1 Breakfast show becomes even more bland. It was bland enough even with Henry. I fear now it will be totally dull, with presenters scared to have any fun with things. It'll rate right up there with religeous infomercials at this rate.

An odd thing for the advertisers... they object to Henrys continued presence on the show, so he gets axed... the viewing audience consequently shrinks and the advertisers ad no longer gets seen by so many people. They may have been better off to quietly tolerate or even encourage his PC mis-steps.

Currently Breakfast seems almost as dull as the androgenous pap that follows it at 9am. I may revert back to solely using the internet for my morning news if Breakfast can't find an interesting element.

Heh, can you just imagine it? All our corner dairys closed while the owners / operators protest.

Imagine the backlash in India - we might have to get Kiwis doing our call centre work again. Wouldn't that be a terrible thing! Not!

I do find it interesting that the one advertiser named as having 'issues' with Henry was Progressive Enterprises, which in turn is linked at the hip with dairys and supermarkets. If these outlets were predominantly run by Asians would we have had any response from Progressive?

I now understand why many people want leave NZ
The “tall poppy” attitude and the small narrow minded points of view of the “minority”, always take sway over what most people think and or believe..
That Paul Henry made a few insensitive comments is really beside the point.
Along with our MMP form of government, there is a very vocal and selfish few, who insist that the majority should bend to their way of thinking. If you don’t, you are then branded a racist or “red neck” ( whatever that means)
We then get the bleeding heart liberal media, creating a frenzied storm over the smallest of issues.
This is way beyond the Paul Henry issue but now all the manipulation of the press, MPs and thus the general population to fall in step with what a small clique desire.
Today it would be fair to say, I am not proud to be a New Zealander.
That TVNZ felt so pressured into making Paul Henry resign, speaks volumes as to the coercion applied.
May you live in interesting times.

Now that Paul Henry has gone perhaps Zippity can start frothing at the mouth over Chris Carter who should be up for trial by the news media later today.

Or maybe Hone Harawira will put his foot in in it AGAIN to give him something more to rant about.

Would have to agree with Happy Harry. My question is, if Paul had been on a late night satire/current events type show and had said those things, I bet it wouldn't of even made the news. Even here in the UK someone on the TV program Mock the week said "Shelia dikshit, Shelia dikshit that's a
very unusual name for an Indian............Shelia.

Yes it is interesting Paul that Progressive Enterprises call the shots on TV One.

You do as we say or we’ll withdraw our advertising.

If Ellis had any gonads he would have sent them packing because the benefits of advertising on TV One must have exceeded the cost, or they wouldn’t do it in the first place. Sort of cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Now the luminary at Progressive has exposed the company to all the supporters of Henry (Some 30,000 on Facebook alone I’m told) moving their trade from Countdown and Woolworths to New World.

Maybe Progressive guys should stick to their own knitting. :rolleyes:

I acknowledge your specialist subject (Complete load of cobblers)
I suspect that I have hit a nerve and you are one of the paranoid minority that think that everyone is against them.
My point is, there has been a huge swing to political correctness and most media organisations will not comment against any minority in case they are judged as discriminatory, raciest or biased.
Because this happens, the majority gets left out and the minority is seen as being the downtrodden and so must be protected
Case in point, the 40 odd protesters that turned up outside TVNZ to protest against Paul Henrys silly remarks.
Why was there not a balanced report shown of all the 10s of thousands, that were not shocked or offended.
Are we to assume that all of those people are raciest?
Being/taking offence is subjective and tolerance of differences should be a priority.
Just because your views may be different to mine does not make me wrong or you right (or vice versa) it is about not being angry and outraged because others have a different opinion.
As to the foil hat , rather that than a blindfold!

I fear now it will be totally dull, with presenters scared to have any fun with things.

Racist comments are no fun when you are on the receiving end, and to be mocked because of your name is equally distasteful.

All that is expected of those people whom we allow into our homes via TV or Radio is that they don't step over the line between good humour and cruelty. Mocking is a weak disguise for bullying, and our youth suicide rate shows the cruel reality of how such thoughtless behaviour can do immense harm.

A good comedian (or humorous presenter) does not need to mock anybody, nor does a hard-nosed interviewer. If they can't do it with wit, intelligence and sensitivity they don't belong on our airwaves.

Wherever Henry goes, I hope he has learned a little humility and humanity, he won't get too many more chances, this is a small pond.

Hey Billie

Tolerance is the main tenant of my beliefs. (No gods or deity's)
There will be many here who will have read your wonderful and funny jokes, but some will see them as ageist, sexist, bigoted and raciest.
Perception is an unmeasurable thing and what seems funny to some, is insulting to others. The problem is, your and my perception of what is wit, intelligence and sensitivity, may and does vary from a lot of other people
What constantly surprises me is the way that people react to unintended slights, and the anger and fury in their responses.

I like his threads too, but maybe that's coz I'm apparently racist ;)

Hi All
My last comment to this thread.
If it seems I am getting at anyone, please accept that was not my intent.
What I am trying to get across is that we all have different perceptions and interpretations as to what is right/wrong, good/bad, tasteful/distasteful etc.
I know that at some time I will have hurt or wounded someone’s feelings, but without any intent to do so. That is the nature of human beings. We don't always get it right.
If I do intend to have a go at anyone, believe me, that person will be in no doubt as to my intentions. The English language has a plethitude of words that will cut a person to pieces and still sound polite.
However, I feel that there is nothing further to learn from this thread. So, over and out.

ps for those who like words “cunctation” is my new word of the day

Cheers
HH

Nothing has changed - I'm still not watching breakfast television.

Please don't. That way you can't get confused with facts.

I have trouble with words like that,that mean exactly the same as the word they are replacing,in this case procrastination.

I also have trouble with people who decide when the discussion should end,the end is when we all agree.And we are not there yet.

From what I can tell in New Zealand, the HRC views the likes of talking about somebodies weight as legal, but discriminating somebody because of their race, as Hone did about his kids not dating whiteys is not legal.

Making an offensive comment about somebodies race however is apparently legal:

It's an interesting line to draw in the sand, but just thought I'd throw that out there for debate...

How rude of you. Everybody is allowed an opinion, and a right to express it, which is what i have done. I have not once ever complained about you expressing your opinion.

Very immature of you :groan:

Well apparently not. Paul Henry has got in trouble for expressing his.

Get over yourself and stop trolling.

It's funny, turns out Paul Henry and Laws aren't the only ones who've been having issues:

I would dearly like a FORMAL debate on any issue to be decided by the majority of those who would actually participate. We only need two teams of three and similar rules to those in the two previous debates we have had.

I do note however that there appears to be people with opinions who wish to freely express same but, however, can't be bothered to do the research to support the DEBATE and have same voted on by all or any members of this Forum who are eligible to vote which I assume would be all members who are not banned at the time of voting.

Methinks that if we can't get two teams of three to debate in a formal manner out of some thousands of members then there is something sadly lacking.

Just my 10 cents worth as we have lost 1, 2, 5 cent coins in actual currency but in financial transactions via credit cards etc they are still legal. Take this a step further and you will find that .0001 cent is still legal currency as in banking. I can't go get a physical one of those but they are still relevant today if you aquire enough of them.
