Not the start to an article I'd want

Give me another go – 29 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

There is an in depth review of Hubbard's and Banksie's mayoral bids. Unfortunately for Dick the Herald started its first sentence rather poorly.

[quote]The prize Dick Hubbard and John Banks are fighting for in the race to be Mayor of Auckland City has proved elusive. Both men are after a second chance. If Hubbard loses this election in two weeks time, he will join Banks and his predecessor, Christine Fletcher, who were voted out after three years in the job. If Banks wins, he will be the first mayor to make a comeback since Sir Dove Myer Robinson in 1968.[/quote]

The article is fair and balanced but makes no mention of Hubbard's illegal signs and improperly authorised election material.

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.
