Television Critic Phil Wallington

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 10 April 2017

Phil advances a conspiracy theory of his own which suggests the government and a powerful group of capitalists are hell-bent on turning the citizens of New Zealand into avid and mindless consumers. He cites the decline of TV journalism and the axing of jobs at TVNZ as examples. Phil also has a critical analysis of TVNZ's news coverage of the West Coast's Gloriavale community and compares it to Louis Theroux's movie on Scientology.
