CORRECTION and APOLOGY to David Cunliffe

Earlier this morning I called David Cunliffe a liar for saying he didn’t know about his wife’s @TarnBabe67 Twitter account because he was the first to “Follow” it with his own Twitter account.

Turns out this was impossible.


Just a few points though.  

– All of David Cunliffe’s Twitter communications in his name since the Christchurch East byelection weren’t actually from David at all.  None of them.

– His own staff don’t want him to have access to his own Twitter account and had him “locked out”.

– If you can’t be trusted with a Twitter account, why is anyone happy to give him a country to run?

– What does this say about his own staff’s trust in his ability to stay on message?

– What other ‘social media activities’ are his staff involved with?

– Was it David Cunliffe’s staff then that was in cahoots with Karen Price / @Tarnbabe67 / Mrs Cunliffe?

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.
