Winston Peters is being criticised for turning a 'tell all' into a tell nothing.

The Deputy Prime Minister went live on Facebook last night, to talk about the New Zealand First Foundation.

When answering a question about whether donations should be transparent, Peters said simply that electoral law should be followed.

He said he was "pretty certain" who had leaked information to the media, which he referred to as "stolen information".

Peters said he'd be telling the 'truth' about the foundation, but Newstalk ZB's political editor Barry Soper told Mike Hosking that didn't happen.

"He really didn't reveal that much. He took what were obviously selected questions over the eight minutes and had a backdrop of the super gold card to remind people who brought that in."
