Garner on Garner on Brian
Witnesses slow to add support to media pair
Two media heavyweights have reached a deadlock in an online dispute, with a lack of witnesses willing to verify either version of events.
Nice to see this story still trundling on after Tumeke blogged it first. The new Edward R Murrow of NZ media (Duncan Garner) apparently didn't say to Chris Carter on an Air NZ Flight that "I am going to fucking get you, Carter. If it takes me to Christmas I am going to fucking destroy you.", he just said, "If you want a fucking war, you'll get one.", perfectly acceptable from a News Editor, and what a fucking war it was. Buying your gay partner flowers and going on travel that was signed off led to some great work by the new Edward R Murrow of NZ Media, let's remember some of them...
Flamboyant Flaming Homosexual pinko flys to Europe on your taxpayer money (probably to spend it all on expensive cocktails and lube)
...yep, one of the great media journalists of our lifetime folks. I'm surprised Duncan hasn't been given a knighthood for his services to the National Party with that above story, he co-hosts The Nation with the former press secretary for Gerry Brownlee, why not just offer Duncan a shadow position in the cabinet?
A political editor who now admits he said "If you want a fucking war, you'll get one." with a body of work that borders on the homophobic for flowers to the boyfriend and travel that was already signed off on, how dare Brian Edwards question the new Edward R Murrow of NZ media!
If Duncan ever needs replacing, TV3 still has David Fane.
