Hacker apologises to NZ Herald

Hacker apologises for skewing Herald free speech poll – 13 Nov 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

The hacker that drastically altered the NZ Herald onl;ine survey has apologised and the Herald has changed its results to reflect the correct results.

Unsurprisingly to all of us except Labour apologists like Russell Brown (who surely must have a credibility issue now, a little tiny update at the bottom of the post doesn’t really cut it, Russell.) the results speak for themselves.

The corrected poll reads like this: 3259 votes cast in total, 81 percent of people (2626 votes)said yes, NZ is becoming less free and democratic but 19 percent (633 votes) disagreed.

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.
