Mike Hosking is a fool:
Seven Sharp presenter and TVNZ political debate moderator Mike Hosking is under fire for giving viewers incorrect information about the Maori Party on live television.
On Wednesday night Hosking and his co-presenter Toni Street were talking about TVNZ’s online political tool VoteCompass when Hosking asked if her issue was, “the fact that you can’t vote for the Maori Party, because you’re not enrolled in the Maori electorates?”.
He’s set to make a “clarification” on the show on Thursday night after TVNZ said in a statement that they “accept those comments were inaccurate”.
Hosking’s job of moderating all three TVNZ debates has been questioned given the information was wrong and anyone on either the general or Maori roll can use their party vote to support any political party they like.
Of course, the greater concern is that Hosking *does* know. https://t.co/cNGyuRXTMh
