Plunket’s appointment to the BSA.
The tweets that led to the resignation.
The Spinoff looks at whether Plunket is a suitable member of the BSA given his history and behaviour.
Broadcaster and sometime TOP communications director Sean Plunket is back in the news thanks to a searingly bad Tweet on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which he later claimed was a ‘social experiment’. But it’s far from his first offence. The Spinoff’s editor Duncan Greive details his history with Plunket and asks if he’s the right person to be a member of the Broadcasting Standards Authority.
Now that the Broadcasting Standards Authority has a vacancy I'm taking suggestions for a suitable replacement.
