Government wastes money advertising 20Free

The Government has spent $267,771 on advertising the failing policy 20Free.

Not so bad I hear you say, they have to get the message out there.

Given that decisions about child care invariably fall on the mother the Opposition questions whether advertising during SmackDown!, RAW, Extreme Championship Wrestling, the All Whites versus Costa Rica, the Salford versus Wigan replay, beach volleyball, and David Lynch’s Blue Velvet.

[quote]Katherine Rich: When academic research confirms that mums are the key influencers in decisions about children's participation in early childhood education, why have 20 free hours commercials been shown during hard-core wrestling shows like RAW, SmackDown!, and Extreme Championship Wrestling, which are shows that are largely watched by young men?
Hon STEVE MAHAREY: As my World Wrestling Federation fan friend over here, the Minister of Finance, points out, shows like that have a very broad audience.[/quote]

Another yeah right moment from the Minister of Smarm.

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.
