Rachel Smalley finally has the monkey off her back. She can no longer be considered to be the stupidest woman on the radio. Rachel Smalley used to tell anyone in the NewstalkZB newsroom who would care to listen that she was the only “serious journalist” in the place.

Yet she uttered this complete inanity live on air:

That mantle has now been taken by the hideous, and now deeply stupid, Michelle Boag, however.

Have a listen:

The media luvvies noticed too:

You have to wonder how Michelle Boag bypassed the editorial policy at Radio New Zealand:

She’s clearly not an expert.

Now I can add retarded to the list of things I’ve called her previously:

For Michelle’s benefit, because I know she reads this site despite claims to the contrary here is why COVID-19 is called COVID-19:

On 11 February the World Health Organization announced that the official name would be covid-19, a shortened version of coronavirus disease 2019. The WHO refers to the specific virus that causes this disease as the covid-19 virus.

This is not the formal name for the virus – the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses calls it the “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2”, or SARS-CoV-2, because it is related to the virus that caused the SARS outbreak in 2003. However, to avoid confusion with SARS the WHO calls it the covid-19 virus when communicating with the public.

Early in the outbreak, the virus was called 2019-nCoV by the WHO. The virus is also often referred to as the novel coronavirus, 2019 coronavirus or just the coronavirus.

So, there you go, proof that Michelle Boag is exceptionally stupid.

Cam Slater
As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats. Cam has previously voted National, Act and NZ First, he never was ever tempted to vote Labour or Green, but once contemplated voting for the Maori party. They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners. He is fearless in his pursuit of a story. Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
