Say Nothing and Nothing Changes
1. Make a complaint to the Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA)
You can do this online at http://www.bsa.govt.nz/complain-formstandard.php
(Thanks to Lex in comments for this info.)
2. Email the head of TVNZ with your views
Here’s TVNZ chief executive Rick Ellis’ email address - email@example.com
(Hat tip to The Standard)
3. Let the relevant Breakfast advertisers know why you won't be watching the show and thus their adverts
- Heritage Hotels are the main sponsors and their media enquiries should go to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Nivea recently gave away some stuff on Breakfast
- Telstra Clear have an ad on their webpage at the TVNZ site

If you're not sure what to write I recommend the comment thread on Gina's post which has some great points. Even a sentence that says something like you are appalled at Paul Henry's irrelevant comments about Stephanie Mills' appearance and want Henry to apologise publicly/be sacked/whatever, would do the trick. Do remember to include what you want as an outcome in your message.
Meanwhile, over in other parts of Blogland Henry has his defenders (and Mills her nasty detractors):
The Houstache - Cactus Kate (rather unsurprisingly) knights Henry for his actions.
Paul Henry - King of Un-PC - Busted Blonde goes even further
I'll update this all as opportunity arises. *'s indicate newish content - most recently updated 2.20pm Monday 30th March.
