RIP Journalist Rob Hosking

rob

Gutted this afternoon to read of Rob’s passing. I consider him one of the last stalwarts of an actual fourth estate, that with his death is almost gone, now. Rob was urbane, knowledgeable, objective and insightful, well written and rightly respected. He leaves a  void in New Zealand journalism and New Zealand commentary proper. Thank you for the words you shared with me, Rob; probably the only journo to read my old blog. All the best to your family, matey. This is a damned shame.
