David Carter’s fibbing, Ctd

David Carter has been caught out for his fibbing over the implications of the One Plan and its costs to farmers. He has continued to fib about 22-43% costs increases.

Now he has fibbed even further, and his department are leaking like a sieve, with huge concerns about his misleading use of data that is contrary to court findings.

He has started peddling the latest MPI/ Landcare report for political ends, spinning that the One Plan decision will put farmers out of business. My sources are saying that the authors of the report a really unhappy about this because the report makes some serious omissions, or is not to be used to criticise the One Plan Decision.

The tipline tells me the Report does not even assess the One Plan Regulatory framework for intensive farming. The report does not undertake an economic assessment of the One Plan rules for intensive farming The report cannot be used to make a statement about the economic costs to farmers about implementing the One Plan decision.

The big question is when the Greens or Labour will start asking David Carter tough questions in the house about his fibs using this report.

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.
