For the Music Video funding we found 32 projects, based on feedback from the music television broadcasters when we tested the songs and our current radio priorities.

All successful applicants are listed below.

In the list we see;

P Money featuring Milan Borich Falling Down Dirty Management

NZ on Air laid off funding him for the last couple of rounds for an interesting reason but it appears they think the heats died down enough that they can slip him some more free dosh again.

Now what was it that the Police Prosecutor and the judge said about the child care worker from Hamilton?

Police pros­e­cu­tor Sergeant Bren­don Bland said employ­ers had a right to know about employ­ees’ past conduct.

Judge Rose­mary Rid­dell agreed. She said an employer’s right to know about a worker’s past out­weighed the indi­rect and direct con­se­quences a con­vic­tion would have….

But that only applies to poor child care workers not up an coming artists eh?

What about taxpayers rights, to know who and what we are funding? Surely the taxpayers have the  right to know about a funding applicants past and the direct consequences of a conviction. Oh wait that only applies to famous people, or judges, or doctors, or lawyers, or teachers, or dentists, or pharmacists, or All Blacks, or failed Olympic Boxers, or politicians, or top police officers, it certainly doesn’t apply to poor child care workers.

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.
