Some genuinely good news from the Mediaworks empire; it seems that Paul Henry may have finally been told to do one.
The NZ Herald is reporting that the mental midget is to leave his TV3 show at the end of the year.
Breakfast is to be hosted by Duncan Garner next year, or so the Herald reckons.
Henry’s recent sexist outburst would have seen you or I sacked.
However, only his producer has been put through a disciplinary process relating to that episode.
It’s probably only a remarkable coincidence that the short notice period Henry is giving roughly mirrors what would be expected from someone in a senior position who was resigning in disgrace.
So I don’t know for sure that he has gone because this was one incident too many, but shouldn’t we be told?
C’mon, MediaWorks, you’re in the news business. Tell us the truth. Why is Henry going? Why wasn’t he disciplined, when his producer was? Or was he sacked and you’re too shy to tell us?
Hopefully this is the last time we see the bigoted fool on our TV screens. Maybe he could try Australia? Oh, wait …
And good luck in your next job. If you lift yourself, you could be average.
