Sean Plunket

Plunket cleared for his attack on “ungrateful hua”

Sean Plunket has escaped sanction for his comments on Eleanor Catton:

The Broadcasting Standards Authority has rejected two complaints about Radio Live host Sean Plunket’s reaction to comments made by author Eleanor Catton.

In January this year, Plunket called Catton an “ungrateful hua” and a “traitor” for comments she made criticising the New Zealand Government while she was at a literary festival in India.

“Here’s the woman who’s a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit, and works at a publicly-funded institution, and has received a lot of financial help during her career to write things,” he said.

“Then she turns around and says, ‘I don’t get a fair crack’…

“That’s my opinion, that’s her opinion, we’re in a free country.”

The BSA received complaints that his comments were “bullying” and a personal attack on Catton.  Read more »

The delusions of John Minto

The next big thing that Hone Harawira and John Minto has got going is Mana News.

And they are straight into bizarre conspiracy theories…and likely a few defamation suits.

Eleanor Catton has managed to reveal the mechanism of the National party media dictatorship this could be extremely dangerous for the survival of our democracy. According to Sean Plunkett you are not permitted to criticise the National government its unpatriotic and against the people of New Zealand.  Too many reporters within journalism have intimate relationships with the national party that are a conflict of interest designed to mislead the New Zealand public. These reporters are holding back real journalists like Andrea Vance. It is unnatural for the press gallery to be uncritical of a seven year old government. The Prime minister office is pouring to many resources into dirty politics and controling the media and little effort to tackle the housing crisis or poverty reduction.

The conspiracy would be more believable if they could spell Sean Plunket’s name properly. I’m surprised that they haven’t substituted every ‘s’ for a ‘$’.

Farrar is back in the saddle, tickles up Catton in open letter

Arts, Travel & Lifestyle blogger David Farrar is back from his hectic travel schedule to sledge Eleanor Catton for her silly comments made to a bunch of Indian luvvies.

Fortunately when not travelling or watching plays because someone has given him a free ticket our pinko mate has moments of political brilliance, and today is one of those days.

He tells Catton to put her money where her mouth is.

Also I noted last year you said you would be happy to taxed at 40% to help young Kiwis. You may be unaware of this, but you can voluntarily pay more tax than you are obliged to. Just calculate the extra 7% on your income and send it to The Treasury, 1 The Terrace, Wellington and I am sure they will send you a receipt.

Dotcom’s actions “reprehensible”

My how the worm has turned.

The left wing is turning on Nicky Hagar and Kim Dotcom…mostly Kim Dotcom.

David Cunliffe has thrown him under the bus in a desperate bid to save his leadership.

Labour leader David Cunliffe has delivered a belated acknowledgement that it was a mistake not to work more closely with the Green Party and lashed out at Kim Dotcom as “reprehensible.”

Asked if Mr Dotcom had affected the chances on the left, Mr Cunliffe said “absolutely.”

“For anybody to wade into New Zealand politics, spend over $4 million and end up wiping out his own supporters and damaging the left I think is reprehensible.”

The 10:30pm phone call from Kim Dotcom

If you are are Dotcom watcher, last Friday was extraordinary.

On his morning show on Radio Live, Sean Plunket was making repeated calls for the “Rawshark”, the person allegedly behind the hacking of my emails, to stand up and take some sort of responsibility.  Time and time again, Sean called on Rawshark to phone in.

And then something really unexpected happened.

Kim Dotcom phoned in for a live talkback exchange with Sean.

After being media shy and running away from reporters at his own party’s election launch, he suddenly made himself available to an interviewer who would not be offering Kim the usual PR platform afforded to him by the likes of the Herald or TV3.

During this conversation, Kim Dotcom made extraordinary claims.

1.  That Tony Lentino did not pay the Coatesville Mansion rent while Kim was short of cash

2.  That Mona Dotcom did not go see Tony Lentino about this issue while Kim was on remand in Mt Eden prison

3.  That lawyer Jordan Williams, while being engaged for his professional services at the time via the company that employed him, unethically obtained a confidential document and later released that to me.

Point 1 was proven to be a bare faced lie about an hour later, when Lentino’s office provided Radio Live with a copy of a legal document, signed by Kim Dotcom, in which he agrees he owed Lentino a debt for the rent payments on the mansion.  Lie one.  Hard proof.  End of.

Point 3 I know to be a lie.  As the recipient of the document in question, I can rule out that Jordan Williams was the source of it.  In fact, it was only during that radio show that I discovered Williams had any contact with Kim Dotcom at all, professional or otherwise.   Lie two.

Point 2, at this stage, we have Tony Lentino’s statement to the contrary.  With Kim in prison, it could hardly have been Kim who approached Lentino for help.   He said, he said, but I’m going with Lie 3.

3 statements, 3 lies.   Read more »

WAYNE TEMPERO INTERVIEW: KIM DOTCOM’S FORMER BODYGUARD SKEPTICAL OF POLITICAL MOTIVES

Sean Plunket speaks with former bodyguard of Kim Dotcom Wayne Tempero, about his time with Dotcom and his views on Kim’s motivation for starting The Internet Party.

In a telling interview, Tempero says he used to respect Dotcom, but has since changed his opinions of him after seeing him buy himself favours, along with his way into New Zealand politics.

“His motives are to save himself and have nothing to do with politics in New Zealand,” says Tempero of his former employer.

Wayne agreed to come on the program this morning to have a discussion, I would thank him for doing so and I would welcome him to the program now..


 

Sean: “Wayne very good morning to you”

Wayne: “Good Morning”

Sean: “Wayne can you first tell me, I just want to go background, you are, a body guard right? How long have you been doing that?”

Wayne: When I heard that music, I laughed because it’s pretty common knowledge I looked after Whitney Huston for a while when I was working for the Royal family of Brunei, she was a very hard woman to look after, I tell ya, it’s not like the movie. Pardon?

Sean: oh so the movie was partly factual?

Wayne: Yeah yeah can be, some of it , the funny part I remember that when I went to pick her up in LA, in one of the private jets, she came up the stairs and she knew who I was because she had been told we would be meeting her there, and she had a bit of a smiley face, and she said you don’t look like a body guard and it was a play on the film I have never forgotten it, but she was a hard client to look after.

Sean: Alright Wayne, now how long have you been in this business?

Wayne: 24 years

Sean: and before that?

Wayne, Um before that, I was in Dunedin umm, like a lot of Dunedin people, when I learned, I went to the freezing works, Burnside freezing works,  I was on the kill floor when in those days you made an awful lot of money and you were probably making moiré than doctors actually and I learnt my trade, what I did was umm I learnt with a guy  called Jeff Todd in Dunedin and he’s the master hand to hand combat instructor for the worlds special forces believe it or not and he still lives in Dunedin and I was lucky enough to train with Jeff for over 15 years before I took the opportunity with him to do contracts overseas and got into this profession.   Read more »

Questions for Nicky Hager

via NZ Herald

Nicky Hager is a sanctimonious little prick who thinks that him publishing stolen emails is legitimate. He hasn’t liked it when Mike Hosking or Sean Plunket got up him.
