Gareth Morgan and Geoff Simmons think Red Bull is for kids


Seriously you can’t make this stuff up.

North Korea’s latest PR guy Gareth Morgan and his raving zombie mate Geoff Simmons are a couple of numb-nuts that think it’s a good idea to give kids a can of Red Bull or V, or at least include them into their book-pimping exercise to get attention.

They’re the backers of another purist Anna Bordignon (oh that’s right she’s pimping a new cookbook as well). Ms Bordignon is fronting the Munch Awards that seeks to slag off various companies.

Let’s have a look at who else is involved in attacking businesses that employ kiwis in New Zealand, pay taxes, offer training and career opportunities, support local communities etc.   

Mmmm, there’s nanny-state activist and know it all Robyn Toomath who runs the Fight the Obesity Epidemic, well known Maori troughers Te Hotu Manawa Maori and the Cancer Society – all now tucking into $2.3 million handouts thanks to Tony Ryall.

But back to the issue at hand. Why would anyone think it’s a good idea to give kids an energy drink, but more to the point why include it as a Runner-up in the Worst Kids Food Product category?

Simple really, it’s all about getting media coverage and attacking companies that these purists don’t like. Ones like McDonalds, Tegal, KFC, Sanitarium, Coca-Cola, Frucor.

Maybe it’s a simple case of Gareth Morgan throwing his money around thinking everyone should do as he says. North Korea will be proud of their latest prodigy.

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.
