I will declare my bias up front. Lisa Owen’s treatment of my husband when the Rawshark hacking story hit was appalling. He was the victim of a criminal act, a criminal hack and she constantly interrupted him and spoke to him as if he was a criminal rather than a victim. He was speaking from Israel and even though she knew it took a few seconds for her question to reach him she consistently would not give him time to reply and consistently cut him off. I don’t know how Cam remained calm under the circumstances but like David Seymour in this latest interview he did. Only a transcript of the interview is now showing on The Nation website. The video link has been removed.
Her latest investigation has her interviewing Te Whanau O Waipareira Trust chief executive John Tamihere and Education Under-Secretary David Seymour. If you compare and contrast the two interviews it is incredibly obvious who she has cast as the victim and who she has cast as the criminal. The way she speaks to Mr Seymour is disgusting. She lacks respect and keeps trying to frame the story the way she wants it to be, not the way it actually is. David even refers to her ” relentless negativity ” while being interviewed by her.
