I wonder if Bruce Ferguson would like to declare a conflict of interest?


Bruce Ferguson has been running around squealing to anyone who would listen that the process for hiring the head of GCSB was unfair.

He ran to the nation’s only opposition, John Campbell, and moaned and threw his toys.

Now He is about to go on Radio Live with Sean Plunket.

With all his histrionics he is acting like someone who applied, or at the least may have been on the short-list that was rejected.

Wouldn’t it be nice if some proper journalists asked Bruce Ferguson if he was on the  short-list presented by the State Services Commission to John Key.

It would be interesting to see what his answer was or whether he too has a “brain fade”.

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.
