Whaleoil Awards – Best Political Journalist Nominations

This will be a hard one folks. There have been a number of changes this year.

Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner have shuffled off to greener pastures. David Fisher has become captured by a fat German fraudster. There are plenty in the gallery I can;t even put a face to. Of course there is Helen Clark’s loyal servant Barry Soper still huffing and puffing away.

But which journalist performed the best this year. By performing I don?t mean in?the?trained seal Patrick Gower type of performing, I mean doing their job and asking the questions that needed to be asked in order to hold the powerful to account.

Place your nominations and reasoning and examples in the comments.

I?l do worst journalist tomorrow.
