Here’s one for the books. Matthew Hooten on 9 to Noon this morning:

PRESENTER: Ah, right, we better start with climate change policy announcement… How do you think it went, Matthew.

HOOTON: Well, I have to say it was probably the most successful policy announcement by a government in a democracy that I’ve ever heard of.

And later on, commenting from his background of involvement as a lobbyist for the forestry sector:

So what the Government has able to demonstrate here is it did take into account what it heard and that gives people confidence, I think, not just in climate change, ah, but across the board that the Government will listen…”

    Wow – is Matthew Hooton attempting to become a serious investigative journalist – ala Ian Wishart?

    Because, if he is – its taken him long enough to pick up the ball. Credit where credits due is always the easiest.

    Maybe he doesn’t see much of a future in advising a National-led administration…
