Maharey being bolshie

Instead of apologising for his unsavoury remarks about Botswana, Steve Maharey has gone on the attack.

He is reported to be frothing at the mouth and demanding an apology from State mouthpiece Radio New Zealand after comments on his remarks by Sean Plunkett.

He has even threatened that if an apology was not forthcoming he would go the board.

Oh dear, oh dear is the minister about to break the law?…probably, he is a Labour Minister after all, you see were he to approach the board it would be a breach of the Broadcasting Act, which prohibits ministers from getting involved in operational matters.

Sean Plunkett should have known better, thou must not criticise the politburo.

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.
