Yesterday on Kiwiblog David Farrar wrote a post on Talleys and industrial law that a senior IR specialist has emailed the tipline about.
Farrar starts with the following premise:
Assuming it has been correctly reported,
A big assumption to make David. Firstly it has to be factually correct, not what Simon Oosterman has fed to the media. After the Cecil Walker incident anything that Simon Oosterman feeds the media needs to be treated with a huge amount of suspicion. Secondly it is a bold leap to assume that the journalist fact checked it before regurgitating Simon Oosterman’s press release.
Journalists, and bloggers who comment on journalists articles should take caution when dealing with anything Simon Oosterman tells them. As with Cecil Walker it is likely hide key facts, be shameless leftie spin and may only have a tenuous link to the full truth.
