Love him, loathe him, Chris Trotter is still on the money

I have always enjoyed Chris Totters musings since the time I lived in Wellington. I don't agree with his politics but he does have valid things to say.

This morning he has elucidated his feelings about state funding of political parties and his reasons for opposing it.

Now I disagree with him about the potential outcome of failing to have state funding but completely agree with him that politics has lost it's mass membership appeal.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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