Paul Brislen’s taxpayer-funded junket?

Yesterday I revealed that Paul Brislen is a hypocrite and likes to suck off the taxpayers’ tit.

It appears that Brislen has been going cap-in-hand to government departments to get a taxpayer-funded bailout for his irrelevant organisation.

Today, his organisation appears to be suddenly full of cash (thank you taxpayers)

Now he is boasting that he is in Hawaii on a “work trip”, probably funded by the taxpayer.



Perhaps instead of trying to be his mate, Radio New Zealand’s Jacob McSweeny should be asking Brislen how much money he has received from taxpayers.

It’s likely McSweeny will be the same as other journalists and won’t actually ask the hard questions.

But Brislen has helpfully put his contact details on his organisation’s website if any readers want to email or call him to ask the questions I posed yesterday

  • How many government departments pay him money?
  • How much does each government department pay each year?
  • How long have government departments been paying his organisation?
  • Will he refund all the taxpayer money that he has received over the years?
  • Does he think his actions are hypocritical?

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.
