Prime Minister John Key has gone on the offensive, calling the media "knuckleheads" for their reporting on the appointment of GCSB head Ian Fletcher and claiming former Prime Minister Helen Clark personally headhunted more people for such positions than he has.

Speaking on RadioLive, Mr Key also said he would refuse to answer immediately any questions in Parliament or from the media that required details he did not have to hand.
