No wonder he quit

A couple of weeks ago Marty G quit is a great huff from The Standard. The VRWC has long suspected that Marty G was Clinton Smith after he quit previously as Steve Pierson when he scored a job in the Parliamentary Library. The writing style was similar as was the content.

Clinton Smith is now working as an advisor in Phil Goff’s office. Any doubt that The Standard is closely linked to the Goffice is now removed completely.

No wonder Marty G signed off from the Standard.

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.
