The Book Don Brash Doesn't Want NZ To Read – Revealed

Listen To Nicky Hager Press Conference [1]
Read The "Hollow Men" Press Kit [2]
[3] After torturing political insiders for more than a year the secret of who had Don Brash's emails has finally been revealed - New Zealand's leading investigative journalism sleuth and author Nicky Hager. This morning at 11am Mr Hager held a press conference to announce the existence of a book "Hollow Men: A Study In The Politics Of Deception" which – thanks to Friday's injunction obtained by Don Brash against John and Jane Doe – cannot now be sold and acquired for the nation's Christmas stockings.

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
