Not National, Just Boag

NZ Herald

John Armstrong thinks Close Up shows how National works behind the scenes pulling strings to influence.

Close Up failed to prove any such connection between Pullar, a one-time National Party activist, and Key – something confirmed by Pullar herself yesterday when she said her contact with him had been only passing.

Even so, the programme was damaging enough in offering further insight into how the National Party wields influence to pulls strings behind the scenes.

He, and anyone making that assumption is wrong, it isn’t how National works, but it is how Michelle Boag works. I’m glad that her unethical behaviour is having the disinfectant of sunlight shone upon 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.
