Just who is running the NBR? It appears to be Matthew Hooton

It appears to be Matthew Hooton.

I spotted this late last night after his post went live.



The post was hardly important, it was simply about another dodgy Roy Morgan poll, one that supposedly matched UMR results that Labour has been leaking like never before.

The fact that Matthew Hooton is shilling UMR’s polling suggests that the numbers posited are bullshit.

I long gave up on Roy Morgan. The fact that they are all over the show like a mad woman’s poo proves that his methodology is incredibly suspect.

Gary Morgan probably wrote the results while curled up under his desk after a bender.

Still the URL peek inside the NBR does beg the question…just who is running NBR…it would appear that it is now Matthew Hooton.

What I want to know is who is getting billed for the piece? Apart from NBR that is.

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.
