Sir Humphreys strike a blow for fair coverage

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

The good folk over at Sir Humphrey’s fresh from outing the Prime Money Water as an congenital lair have now proved that the Greens are just as duplicitous. The Greens whinged about the Pamphlet drop being based on outright lies…..seems they were correct…..they were (the Greens) telling outright lies themselves.

There is much to read but all worth it.

The 15 Charges/Verdicts are as follows; 14 Guilty and 1 innocent.

Outright Lie 1: Introduce a capital gains tax, Verdict: Guilty.
Outright Lie 2: Increase petrol and diesel taxes, Verdict: Guilty.
Outright Lie #3: Introduce a carbon tax, and increase petrol prices by 10%, eems like more spin than substance to me. Verdict: Guilty.
Outright Lie #4: Support the Kyoto protocol – the one billion dollar bungle.Verdict: Guilty of stupidity

Outright Lie #7: Ban the building of new prisons, Verdict: Guilty.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
