The ‘Shearer’ Standard

So David Shearer thinks Slow Hand Shane Jones is competent enough to be returned to the front bench, on the basis of a report that still leaves lots of serious questions unanswered.

It lays bare the rank hypocrisy of David Shearer, who, just a few weeks ago was saying the Auditor General’s clearance of the Sky City deal was ‘completely shonky‘ that John Key was implicated and desperate ; that it was a dodgy deal, that it had been a ‘cosy stich-up‘ and was  anything but transparent.

It’s clear not all OAG reports are created equal in the eyes of David Shearer.

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.
