Russel Norman volte-face on Dunne fiasco

Russel Norman has posted this message on Facebook…it represents a sudden change of attitude, I wonder what brought that on.

That is a massive climb down from Russel Norman, who was just last Friday demanding Police climb all over Peter Dunne and force him to hand over emails.

Now he is even saying that the Privileges Committee complaint from David Shearer may well be overstepping the mark.

Again, I wonder what has forced this dramatic turn of events which basically sees Russel Norman backing away from calls for Peter Dunne to have the Police inspect his inbox, backs away from Labour’s Privileges complaint and also backs away from calling on Peter Dunne to resign.

One could say this is a curious turn of events.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
