Comment of the Day

Mr Blobby comments yesterday on my post about my appearance on The Nation:

Hey Rachel (don’t know who you are) Smalley.

The real story is about a rooting Mayor. This may be a hard concept for your producers to grasp.

Two points.

1. Out of control bureaucracies like Auckland Council and probably TVNZ are cesspits of immoral behaviour, there will be rampant rooting all over the place, I have witnessed this first hand working for a Government department many years ago.

2. People like Pants Down Brown, don’t just wake up one morning and say I think I will have an affair. They are serial rooters, generally they have been at it for a long time, with a well oiled act. This is just the first time they have been caught. 

Take a closer look at Auckland Council or a casual look at any Government department and you wont have to scratch to far under the surface to see, what I am talking about.

With 6000 employees at Auckland Council, the number of affairs and so forth will go into the hundreds from the lowly cleaner/security guard right up to the top of the organization.

The difference is in the disparity of standards, the lowest paid will be judged more harshly than a senior manager, the former will be sacked the latter will be covered up.

A real investigative journalist would set aside the scripted teleprompter and do some real work and hold those in power to account.

The odds a very high that this is not brown stains first go at the rodeo.

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.
