TVNZ cancels Agenda

"The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason." - Hunter S. Thompson.

It's hard to reconcile the New Zealand state-owned broadcaster's seemingly infinite budget for marginally worthwhile television shows from the U.S. with its reluctance fund high quality political commentary.

Even if Agenda was tucked away on a Sunday morning it still managed to find a significant audience.

Praise Be remains in place.
