The truth starts to come out

From 3 News [emphasis mine]:

A spokesperson for Radio New Zealand released this statement to 3 News this afternoon.

“Mr Bradbury’s invitation to take part in The Panel discussion segment was withdrawn because his personal comments about the Prime Minister were deemed to be in breach of Radio New Zealand’s editorial requirements for fairness and balance. One of his comments was regarded as being potentially defamatory.

“Mr Bradbury’s comments were inconsistent with information he had provided to programme producers before going on air.

Mr Bradbury later apologised to the programme’s executive producer. It was made clear to him that while his invitation to appear as an occasional guest on The Panel was being withdrawn, it was not a ‘lifelong ban’ and it did not apply to other Radio New Zealand programmes.”

That is quite a different story from what the lap blogs, Labour MPs and the sacked Radio NZ blog post reader, Martyn Bradbury have been saying.

The sacked Radio NZ blog post reader, Martyn Bradbury also accused me of lying about the reasons he was given the arse. At the time I was just guessing as to the reasons but Radio NZ have now confirmed that they were misled as to what he was going to be talking about.

He was not banned for criticising the PM, he was banned for being a dick.

    How things have not changed since I was stuck in Politics 341 and 345 at the University of Auckland with Bomber…

    The only question yet to be resolved with this half wit twat Bradbury is that was he born stupid or does he wake up each morning and practice?

    Bomber was sacked for being a jerk. End of story.

  • So the sacked Radio NZ blog post reader, Martyn Bradbury is a bullshit artist as well as everything else; wow; who’d have ever thunk that?

  • jabba

    is he still bitter about David F having a column in the Herald?

  • I would have thought the insinuation that RNZ had accepted a multi million dollar BRIBE would have been reason enough to give him the boot. I mean seriously, is it a good idea to accuse the Radio station that you want to work for of corruption? I mean really??? Duh.
    How long would I keep my job in the education sector I wonder if I publicly accused my superior of putting a student onto our role off our long long waiting list because his parents had given him a new car and sent him on an all expenses paid holiday to Hong Kong for a spot of shopping????
    If my accusation was merely speculation i would be gone in no time without a doubt. If I had hard evidence, well then it would be a different matter. The only HARD thing Martyn appears to have contributed to this mess is his head!
