One Of The Most Savage Political Interviews You'll Ever See

A New Zealand journalist has gone viral following her utterly brutal interrogation of an ousted politician.

Journalist Tova O' Brien (Right) with Advance New Zealand party leader Jami-Lee Ross.

The Advance New Zealand party gained popularity online with conspiracy theorists thanks to Ross' decision to merge with the controversial Billy Te Kahika Jr, who is anti-lockdown, believes that 5G causes cancer, and that COVID-19 is demonic and also no worse than the flu. "Do you have any regrets?" "You've just been part of a political movement which has been peddling misinformation during the election campaign".

Ross dodged the question, but O'Brien wouldn't let him off the hook.

"I don't want to hear any of that rubbish", O'Brien said before Ross complained: "You can't just give me that and not just allow me to answer". Ross explained his rationale, but O'Brien fired back with a devastating putdown.

She told Ross he had "sold his soul for political ambition" referring to his party's platform towards coronavirus.

Clearly, that's not how Newshub's political editor, Tova O'Brien, operates.

O'Brien then finished up the interview by asking if there was anything Ross would like to say seeing as "this is probably the last time you'll be on TV and the last time we will invite you on".

The exchange comes just days after the landslide re-election victory of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who called it an endorsement of her government's efforts to stamp out the coronavirus and reboot the nation's economy.

O'Brien responded to the Twitter reaction on Monday morning. Really it was just a journalist doing her job, and doing it well by actually holding politicians accountable for the things they do and say - something that American journalists could learn a thing or two about before next month's USA presidential election.
