On newstalk today they ran a piece on Cowen saying he was running scared from the media , Cowen decided he was going to do an interview with his personal media handlers rather than any of the print and broadcasting Journalists on the recent chinese visit.

And Cowens interview with his own press handler here. Must have taken the Chinese advice on board about dealing with the media.
