Winners and Not Winners

Once again Phil Goff is all over the show with his responses to a crisis. This time it is his inconsistent approach over comments by Damien O’Connor’s “gaggle of  gays” comments.

Here are two clips that show his foolishness.

The first clip has Phil Goff saying that he thought Damien O’Connor should have been higher on the list and then finishes up with some “newspeak” where he says that the list has “winners and not winners”.

Then bFM from Monday morning Phil Goff essentially laughs off the comments from Damien O’Connor, no mention of them being inappropriate or him needing to apologise. (Full interview: http://www.95bfm.com/assets/sm/199235/3/mondayphilgoff[dot]mp3

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.
