Knucklehead Press Gallery Journo offends China

John Key’s trip to China would have to be one of the most successful in recent memory. The exposure NZ received by China was nothing short of extraordinary and should be a big tick.

However, typical of the small-minded junior political hacks from the press gallery that covered the China trip was Katie Bradford-Crozier and Hamish Rutherford. I’m sure their employers will be thrilled to see this tweet from Katie Bradford-Crozier covering the antics of Hamish Rutherford. China extends a great welcome to New Zealanders and some dickhead decides to pull this stunt.

It appears the tweet has now been deleted….too bad my tipster nabbed a screenshot. 

John Key was spot on when he called a couple of jurnos knuckleheads.



Don;t you just love Twitter, it exposes all the silliness of the people who are supposed to be the ones holding our politicians to account.

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.
