Stuffed: People of Influence who aren’t

Yesterday the Sunday Star Times released their 20 People of Influence and Effect. One of them is supposed to be Air New Zealand CEO Christopher Luxon:

There is a slight problem…the photo they have used isn’t Christopher Luxon at all. It is Air New Zealand’s Vice President Engineering Mike Sinett. The photo that they used from Setford Photo News Agency, that they would have paid good money for even has all the people in the photo named for their convenience.

The fact that Fairfax and Sunday Star Times would like us to think that these are People of Influence and Effect and they can;t even get simple facts right about the people they have chosen says a great deal about the integrity of the list, and of Fairfax.

For the record this is what Christopher Luxon looks like:

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.
