Best not to beat around the bush and try to come up with this or that justification. When challenged about his recent on air rant against TVNZ 7, Mike Hosking took to Twitter to justify himself.
Thankfully, the statisticians pushed back.
It’s extraordinary when one argument is blown out of the water, how there’s an immediate switch to another argument. It would be best if Mike just said he doesn’t like public television broadcasting and be done with it.
Throng again has taken him to task.

After Mike Hosking’s initial rant that stated that the size of TVNZ7′s audience didn’t justify its existence, he then moved to Twitter to defend his comments. However he went from saying the numbers weren’t big enough, to that they needed to outrate whatever else it was up against to, to that it didn’t actually matter how well it rated because he just doesn’t like public broadcasting.
