Guest Post – Gaskranken – Reviewing the SST so you don't have to

Occasionally I accept guest posts. Today’s is from Gaskranken.


In the Sunday Star Times this week we had the usual suspects (Laws, McDonald and McLeod) banging on about their usual gripes.

I notice Laws didn’t even mention the possibility that SFNS might have something to do with it. This isn’t the same guy that wanted a Facebook page full of crack hoes he could pimp out to his dodgy mates is it? Actually he might already have one – how would we know?

McDonald bangs on about the possible date for this year’s election date which was posted on this blog some time ago, (Nov 28 for those who missed it.)
At least this week we got some relief from what he normally flogs – conspiracies involving international markets, right wing capitalists and dodgy corporations.

And then we have McLeod with her old style feminist politics taking a position on Assange refusing to believe that he could be shafted by an ardent, left-wing, jealous feminist who happens to be on the C.I.A. payroll, they will screw you every time.

Lastly is it just coincidence that Sharkey and Obama happened to be holidaying in Hawaii at the same time? Keeping up to date with Wikileaks might provide the answer to that one.

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.
