Penguin politics fails the Phoenix

The man who famously fattened up a penguin for a lucky orca is now causing the Phoenix to crash and burn.

Gareth Morgan clearly has so little to do, that his expertise as an economist is now morphing into professional coaching and sports psychology.

It’s always the way – Morgan goes to extreme lengths  to “save” a penguin, then he drops it into southern ocean with a tracker, where it is never heard from again. 

We can sadly expect the same of the Wellington Phoenix – “saved” by Morgan’s heart and his cash, only to be served up for unexpected misery and disaster of Morgan’s own making.

Ah well, there went the Mayoral dream I guess.

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.
