I wonder exactly who is sitting on the rest of the whaledumps?
the media outlets being sued in Slater's name, that's who.
Hager mentioned other non-personal material he had seen but left with Rawshark for other journos to get. This included the Hotchin material. It seems unlikely that there wouldn't be other angles and more detail than Hager could fit in his book.
As mentioned previously, our craven media seem cowed into submission by the prospect of influencing the ongoing legal action against them paid for by someone sympathetic to the interests of the govt and/or Slater.
there are more than two parties in the election, even for media determined to report on personalities rather than other factors like policy or coalition prospects.
Apparently the PM’s story has shifted again this morning (yet his faithful defenders at the Harold descibe that fact as an accusation).
Mr Key has said the GCSB was working on a business study for a form of “mass cyber protection” following cyber attacks on several large New Zealand companies. Mr Key had told them it was too broad a net. However, this morning he indicated it had gone ahead on a limited capacity.
“I said I think it’s too broad .. so in the end I said let’s set it at a much more narrow level.”
He denied that was mass surveillance.
You really think we haven’t been discussing the substance of this? Several recent threads, many hundreds of comments, well over 100k pageviews. And informed discussion since before Snowden.
Just watched some of the Newstalk ZB leaders’ breakfast stream.
Same. The chumminess of the media pack with Key was astounding to watch. Laughing along with him as if nothing had changed. Need a kick up the jacksie.
Braunias delivers a cracking detailed interview today with Greenwald. Preamble goes until 2nd photo if you have less time. Recommended read.
hey, they were volunteers. and most of the station was music, but I'm proud of what we achieved
This is the type of control and lack of accountability that some of our less ethical company directors would dream of. There’s no effective accountability to the law and so no accountability to anyone.
Hence the character of these Ministers and their staff becomes all the more important. A moral compass is not an optional extra.
former Labour political insider
I'm confused how former candidates get labelled as that, especially in Josie Pagani's case.
I missed the piece where she may have commented on royalties so would have phrased differently if had caught that.
See my comment above - looks like some folk on Twitter misheard. Never happens :)
