Explaining is losing

Rule number one of Whaleoil’s Rules of Politics is Explaining is Losing.

Phil Goff is doing a lot of explaining about his increasing personal attacks and the headline is all explaining.

Mr Goff says he wasn’t personally attacking Mr Key, but “smug and glib answers” are all the National Government has given to the public.

We are left under no illusion that in explaining that something isn’t nasty and personal that it actually is – explaining is losing.

Phil Goff is losing.

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.
