When the Greens play Dirty Politics with Dirty Media

The Green party manufactured a hit job on the Prime Minister and his media by feeding several Media party outlets with “exclusive” details.

The first to run the story was Matt Nippert, who somehow forgot about his gushing articles of outrage about me feeding stories to media that were described as Dirty Politics. He forgets too that he was a glad recipient of many stories from me back before Nicky Hager threatened them all.

But he took the info, shilled a Green party hit job and Fran O’Sullivan praised him for it even though the Green party did all the leg work.

This is what I call Dirty Media. Not because it is dirty per se, but because of their rank hypocrisy of going all in and attacking me for the very same things that are done every day in politics around the world.

Frances Cook exposes the Green party tactics of how they shilled this story to a lazy and complicit Media party:

It was the Green Party which uncovered the story, after some excellent investigation. Less good is that they then spoke to several media outlets, leaving at least three with the impression that they had an exclusive story.

It’s not the end of the world, and it’s still the Prime Minister who will face the most questions over this. But the Green Party might find media wary of them the next time they uncover dirt on their opponents.

She went further on Twitter.

When the Greens do Dirty Politics the Media party laps it up. When Nicky Hager writes a lopsided book leaving out all the Media party, Green MPs and Labour MPs, it’s called Dirty Politics.

Are we getting the picture now? Dirty Politics = Politics…it is as it has ever been. Politics is a game played by dirty despicable people doing dirty despicable things…it won’t ever change and the Green party are just as dirty as everyone else. They just think their shit doesn’t smell because they compost.
