Nicky Hager's first public comment on police investigation

Nicky Hager's first public comment about the police investigation announced today

For immediate release

A complaint has been laid with police by Cameron Slater over the hacking of his computer and 'theft' of emails to supply to Nicky Hager for his explosive book Dirty Politics. We give Nicky Hager the first chance to respond.

This morning The Slightly Correct Political Show had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Hager and put to him questions around the ethics of 'receiving stolen merchandise' and also asking if he is at all worried about a police investigation and what will happen if 'the Deputy Commissioner knocks on [his] door'. In the 20 minute interview Pat Brittenden and comedians Dai Henwoood and Chris Brain delve into numerous areas of this hot topic that haven't been talked through with Mr. Hager in the 4 minute interviews he has been getting on the mainstream media.
