Nicky Hager reckons I play politics dirty.
He is right, I do….So what?
But he is in reality a sanctimonious hypocrite.
Twice now he has written books from stolen and/or hacked books about New Zealand politics.
Funny how they are always National party aligned people who have their emails hacked or stolen by accomplices of Nicky Hager.
Who is the one playing dirty politics?
The left of course rejoices, but never once stops to winder why it is that nothing like this surfaces in return.
They wrongly assume that they are squeaky clean. They are not. It is just that no one on the right is prepared to actually commit crimes to play their dirty politics.
And is it really that dirty? Tony Falkenstein doesn’t seem to think so, despite me challenging his shilling against “Big Sugar” in order sell his own water.
And the victim of an alleged corporate smear campaign is shrugging off claims that a Food and Grocery Council public relations advisor ordered and paid for online attacks.
Mr Hager’s book claims that Tony Falkenstein, who was involved in a legal case against Coca Cola, was the target of online attacks written by Mr Slater.
Coca Cola is one of the council’s members.
The book claims the attacks were paid for by the council’s public relations agent, Carrick Graham.
The victim of the online smear campaign, Tony Falkenstein, said he was not too worried about the revelations.
“I think that’s part of lobbying, and if I look at it from their point of view, hey if someone’s got a different opinion that could be detrimental to their members, they’re going to use any tactic possible to make sure they get their own opinion across.”
Coca Cola could not be reached for comment, while Mr Slater, Mr Graham and the Council are refusing to comment.
