About Bloody Time

Vietnam vets finally get their due – 22 Aug 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Prime Minister Helen Clark announced Tribute 08, a commemoration and reunion event for all Vietnam veterans and their families. The key event, a Queen’s Birthday reunion, will feature an apology for the treatment of Vietnam veterans – who were never officially welcomed home.

Vietnam veterans organised their own event in 1998, but Mr Mullane said the official Government involvement in Tribute 08 would lend it greater significance.

All I can say is about bloody time.

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.
