Maharey caught fibbing again

Freeview advertisement ruled ‘misleading’ – 27 Jul 2007 – NZ Herald: Technology News from New Zealand and around the World

Maharey has stuffed up again, this time it is Freeview. He really is the reverse Midas of the labour party. everything he touches turns to poop.
[quote]An advertisement for digital television service Freeview has been canned after the Advertising Standards Authority agreed with complainants who said it was misleading.

The advertisement promised “crystal clear quality for free”, but complainants said viewers could only receive the Freeview signal after they had bought a set-top box.

They argued that the set-top boxes could cost up to $300, making the advertisement’s claims about a “free” service misleading. [/quote]

A majority of the ASA’s Complaints Board agreed the advertisement made an exaggerated claim, which omitted reference to an essential purchase, and was thereby misleading to the consumer.

Gee, what else has Maharey wanked on about that was free that in fact isn’t, oh that’s right 20Free!!!

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.
