Hi guys, these are the things I have warned about. Do you know these to be factually accurate? ...
The original statement was one that I made that has been since deleted. As you can see it references FJH's own reply. As such I cannot see the issue with that statement. Here is FHJ's reply:
Frankie J Holden wrote:My appearances on Whats Up Down Under are part of my professional career as a television presenter. That particular program was sponsored by the New South Wales Camping and Caravanning Industry Association, an umbrella organisation representing all the different parts of the industry. That statement was read by me as part of my professional duties, it’s not to be taken as my personal opinion.
As you can see the opinion that he offered on free camping was a statement that was read by him as part of his professional duties which was sponsored by the New South Wales Camping and Caravanning Industry Association and not to be taken as his personal opinion.
As such any opinion that FHJ might venture on the show you now have to be circumspect about because, as he has admitted, he will venture opinions that are against his own if he has been paid to do so. Is there any other way to read his statement?

The two statements are different:

"we know any opinion he has is an opinion that has been paid for"

Does not clarify any context in relation to the show. i.e. "ANY opinion he may have" is very different to saying "any opinion that FHJ might venture on the show"

The first statement used is an opinion to what he said, and is open to mean anything he says, while the second one clarifies ' on the show'

That is was all I was trying to achieve; less open statements that can infer something else

After reading the comments in this post, I'm amazed no-one has demanded a "right of reply". No CMCA. No C & M. No individual. How can we get our message across if we don't fight back?

Just another note. Many of the advertisers on this show would be targetted at Free Campers. Generators? Self contained RVs? RV accessories? Has anyone contacted any of the advertisers to let them know their add dollars are wasted on this program?

Have I done anything? Just this. I work full time & when I have some time I'm off!
