When does mis-speaking becoming lying?

Kris “Tardis” Fa’afoi says he mis-spoke when he fondly remembered the opening of the Porirua McDonalds….from Christchurch, when he was just a couple of months old.

But when does mis-speaking become lying?

The first time?

Mr Faafoi first made the comments in an interview with The Dominion Post and repeated them in an television broadcast. He has since said he “mis-spoke” and meant to say it was where he had his first McDonald’s burger.

The second time?

Or the third time?

or the fourth time?

With that much lying going on, anyone would think he had met Richard Nixon at some point…..oh wait he did…with Elvis.

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.
