Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

As an expert communicator, Clare Curran should be familiar with the phrase “Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer”.

Instead she is having a moan on Twitter that the TVNZ CEO gave her a flippant answer to her stupid question. She even moaned about it three separate times just to ram home how scatty she is.


You’d think the person who wants to be the broadcasting minister would realise it’s not a smart idea to alienate the CEO of TVNZ with Twitter moans.

As a sign of her cluelessness and general ineptitude in her chosen shadow portfolio, she can’t even get Kevin Kenrick’s name right!

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.
