Former MP turned Internet Party press secretary Pam Corkery lashed out at media at the party's official campaign launch in Auckland today.

Her bizarre performance came when media requested an interview with Kim Dotcom about comments in his speech.

"...You want to interview Kim, who said no interviews, about a 19-year-old story. You work in news you puffed up little sh*t," said Ms Corkery.

In his speech today, Mr Dotcom admitted he "hacked" a German credit rating system when he was 19-years-old, which left questions about his possible connections to the mystery Whaledump hacker.

However, getting clarification proved difficult.

"He (Dotcom) doesn't want to. He said 3 times 'I don't want to give you an interview'. He's not a candidate, he doesn't owe you anything. When will you glove puppets of Cameron Slater just piss off."

Mr Dotcom denies he is behind the Whaledump Twitter account. The person behind the Twitter account is believed to have sourced Nicky Hager with the hacked emails used in his latest book Dirty Politics.
