Hey TVNZ! Tell your viewers the real story


Big Ole Pat Newman, Labour flunky and go to man for TVNZ

It seems a certain Pat Newman has become a “go-to” school principal for TVNZ, for comment on all kinds of issues.

Good old Pat duly provides a negative response with obligatory digs at the Government.

Pat somehow manages to squeeze power bills into the food in schools debate

Meanwhile on Breakfast he is allowed to pontificate on all that is wrong with our country – with the help of some utterly inane questions.

But why would good old, caring Pat be so concerned about the state of the country and continually want to say how terrible everything is?

I’ll tell you, shall I?

Because he is also this Pat Newman;

And this Pat Newman;

And this Pat Newman;

And this Pat Newman;

And most disgraceful of all, this Pat Newman.

What are the chances that when he is next on TVNZ, he is introduced as failed Labour candidate, bully and all round nasty piece of work, Pat Newman?

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.
