Typical Pagani spin doctor drivel

Josie Pagani is having a sook about Labour’s fortunes in the Herald. It is a mixture of spin and sly attacks with no evidence in fact masquerading as victimhood:

“Of course there were those who would never vote Labour, like the gang of elderly farmers who heckled me on the main street of Feilding. “Go on, get out of town, you piece of trash. You don’t deserve to drive a Holden.” Nice.”

Yet there is not a word about the proven public attacks on New Zealand heroes like the Mad Butcher by Labour MP Darien Fenton.

Labour lost not just because they were economically illiterate and had confused messages for their base. They lost because they were just plain nasty and more obsessed with smearing opponents than winning. It might have worked under Helen Clark but those times are well and truly past and the electorate simply doesn’t like it.

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.
