11:30am - 12:00pm
Taku Aroha
Te Atarangi Ki Roto O Tainui
CA Paakiwaha

10.00am – 12.00pm

 
Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly two hour current affairs program hosted by Willie Jackson and featuring topical national kaupapa from a Māori perspective.
 
Since it began in 2002, Paakiwaha has made a key contribution to Waatea's vision of providing a Māori current affairs format in English, a forum that provides a uniquely Māori  perspective on issues affecting primarily Māori, but ultimately all New Zealanders.
 
The aim has always been to provide opportunities for listeners to have a better understanding of kaupapa that may not get fair treatment on mainstream media, while allowing Māori and non-Māori  to engage in critical debates on those issues.

Bomber Bradbury can't disguise his envy of Cameron Slater & how successful his blog is. Make no mistake, Cameron Slater is incredibly polarising, at times deeply offensive & can cross the line but Bomber told straight up lies trying to say the content & commentary on the left wing blog sites was in a different "stratosphere" to Whaleoil. You get idiots on both sides of the political spectrum & a quick search ofthe respective site will confirm that. He also repeated the same old lines from Hager's book almost all of which are unsubstantiated about OIA's, blackmail etc etc. Yet Bradbury, as a self proclaimed Marxist had his hand out for a few pieces of silver from Kim Dot Com (who as shown treats his workers like dirt). Credibility ruined right there Bomber.

Cameron Slaters still an obnoxious, egotistical moron, waste of time interviewing him, surely it's not that hard (leading up to an election) to find someone really worthy to interview? Oily whales I think not.!

Bomber is a such a dishonest person and extremely jealous of Cam Slater, Bomber is involved with the convicted criminal and corrupt dotcom.
