    Yes, had a good laugh when I saw that article. On live TV too, I gather, so no chance to edit it.

    I don’t even want to know how often “reporters” stage stuff like this. Seems these days that they forget that their business is reporting the news facts, not lobbying and pushing their opinions on people.

    People need the facts and then they can form their own opinion. It’s about time reports rediscover this.

    Wow, Slats in an amazing guy. One day he’s opening for the Australian test team, 5 years later he’s just one rank away from being called general ;)

    This guy sure knows how to handle the media.

    If anyone has a recording of the TV bit somewhere I’d love to see it.

    I want to learn from this guy :)
