The Greens have waded into the Plunket fiasco by slamming the decision to use McKesson Corporation.
 
They cite US news about McKesson where they paid $3 million in settlement of serious fraud allegations. 

[quote]McKesson Corporation, the parent company of McKesson New Zealand, which was recently awarded the PlunketLine contract, paid the US Government US$3 million in February to settle claims that it defrauded the United States Defense Department by overcharging for pharmaceutical products.

The company was also embroiled in separate fraud allegations several years ago which saw its former Chief Financial Officer indicted on charges of conspiracy and securities fraud.[/quote]

Not one to support the Greens but it is hard to argue otherwise on this issue.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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