DBP in hot water again.

David Benson-Pope gets himself into hot water once again, this time selectively leaking the police file to the Herald on Sunday.

What is even more embaressing for DBP is that his office initially denied the allegations. I am surprised, however, given his track record to truthfulness so far, that he sought to correct the error when he hasn’t admitted such lies in the past.

Leaking the file has done him no favours n the long term because eventually the leak would be, and has been revealed. Any short term benefit has vanished and more opportunities have arisen for the opposition to question DBP’s judgement and ability to serve in the cabinet.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
