Who is the biggest beneficiary?


So Mike Hoskins received some ‘hate’ mail in response to his coverage of Minginui.   His subordinates weren’t sympathetic.   He also received support.

I don’t think either the original story or the follow-up (which I saw as a vanity piece for Hoskins)  cost a lot to make.  But that doesn’t detract from the fact that they were still a waste of time and money from a taxpayer’s point of view.   TVNZ is currently on a three -year dividend holiday and the paltry $10 million it claimed as profit last year hardly reflected the public’s investment in it.

So there you go.   Mike is a not only  an overly well paid beneficiary of taxpayer largesse but he also shows no sign of putting his shoulders to the wheel and doing some research.
