Freeview looks like yet another Maharey Cock-up

Scoop: Give us the numbers on Freeview

Jonathon Coleman raises a good point, in that it is two months since Freeview went live and we haven’t heard a peep from Maharey, waxing lyrical about how successful his little project has been.

[quote]”Just as with early childhood education, Mr Maharey won’t give a straight answer to a direct question asking how many households have signed up for Freeview, but I bet he’s got the numbers at his finger tips.”

“When $105 million of taxpayers’ money has been spent by the Minister on digital television, the public deserves to know what that money is delivering for the country.

“One thing is for sure: if the numbers were good, Mr Maharey would be telling us all about them.” [/quote]


Is this yet another Maharey cock-up?

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.
