NZ Media Suddenly Don't Want To Profit From Illegally Obtained Emails

Phil Goff's emails have been allegedly "illegally obtained". The "hacker" asked for $20,000 from the NZ Herald to release them, giving waiting journalists a small sample.  Probably enough for them to jizz over if it was say... oh I don't know, Judith Collins. Collins and Goff have held similar portfolios in senior positions in politics with equally sensitive material.  Goff from 2007-19 in Defence and as Leader of the Opposition and the Mayor of Auckland with Collins in Corrections, Police and Justice.  In the case of Collins it was deemed to be in the "public interest" to take these illegally obtained emails and publish them everywhere, out of context and without a chance for her right of reply.  Collins' emails did not number 15,000 and she did not forward them to her own personal account which in itself is prima facie illegal. Goff, a favourite of the NZ Herald, seems to have had not only a heads up, time to get lawyers in

Was Sir Ron Brierley Set Up?

I wrote back at the time that the most interesting occurrence during the post arrest of Sir Ron Brierley was that everyone who had made money from and with Brierley seemed to claim no knowledge of his behaviour. I asked these questions: 1. Who tipped the authorities off in August?  Dirty.....where from? Why?  Motive?  Or was it an Apple shop employee? 2. Why would you possess "child pornography" when it is available online like everything else dirty, for streaming?  Carrying it across a jurisdiction is akin to Shane Jones watching pay per view porn when he should have just logged in to the wifi.  Like taking coal to Newcastle or coke to Colombia? 3. He is 82, who put it on his USB or "external drive"? Because I know of NO 82 year old who even understands what a USB stick or external drive is? For the hundreds of millions of dollars he is worth - who is or was protecting him? People of Sir Ron's wealth and age have an attache, butler or PA.  Moreso in
