When Cam was the Editor of a MSM newspaper the MSM still referred to him as Attack Blogger Cameron Slater or Controversial Blogger Cameron Slater or Right Wing Controversial or attack Blogger Cameron Slater. Many of the e-mails taken by the hacker were working e-mails from when he was employed as an Editor and were between him and his many contacts and sources.
After a respected High Court Judge declared Cameron a Journalist the MSM still refused to call him a journalist. When Nicky Hager used information stolen from Cameron it was not reported as a writer of a book based on a Journalist’s stolen information but as a respected Investigative Journalist reporting on a nasty attack blogger! No doubt the fact that Nicky admitted to deliberately leaving out of the book all the journalists who regularly worked with Cameron and shared information with him ensured that he got nothing but positive press about his commercial venture. After all, he protected their skins, so they had to return the favour or be tarred with the Dirty Politics brush.
No doubt when Freed starts giving the MSM a good old fashioned thrashing, pants down they will still refer to him as a Blogger using one of the above adjectives.
No doubt even as they are forced to lay off journalists and tighten their collective belts while giving away even more copies of their outdated and behind the times product they will continue to get a sense of satisfaction from their adjectives.
Well I say why should they have all the fun?
Time to start a collection of adjectives of our own.
