Dodgy is as Dodgy Does, Seven Sharp jukes the stats

Regan at Throng blogs about the subterfuge of TVNZ to claim 31,000 fans for a new show that is yet to air a single episode.

TVNZ has “repurposed” the page and likes of Close Up, a move that was apparently made possible due to some sweet talking with Facebook and spinning the line that Seven Sharp is simply a continuation of TVNZ’s 7pm current affairs programming as opposed to being an entirely new show, with a new format, new hosts and new MO.  Tui ad anyone?

Talk about dishonest, and this is supposed to be their new nightly current affairs show. 

The mainstream media like to pretend they are highly ethical and straight up…through social media though ordinary citizens are able to peek beneath the skirts and now categorically able to see that the mainstream media is as ethical as they would like us to believe.

Conjuring tricks magicking up 31,000 like is as intellectually dishonest as their show is likely to be.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
