Citizen A – 3 June 2011

Cit­i­zen A — 7.30pm tonight Stratos Free­view 21 & Sky 89

Tune in to join Wha­le­oil and his revolv­ing panel of blog­gers and Auck­land opin­ion shapers as they offer an up-to-date half hour review of the polit­i­cal media issues of the cur­rent week from a very Auck­land perspective.

THIS WEEK: Edi­tor Sel­wyn Man­ning and that awful Bomber Bradbury…

Issue one: Now Cam has been outed as being part of a cabal plan­ning to spike MMP on-line, should he stand trial for trea­son and how will the right attack MMP?

Issue two: The Ide­o­log­i­cally stacked Wel­fare Razor Gang have given John Key all the ben­nie bash­ing he needs for the elec­tion with the most vul­ner­a­ble and weak­est mem­bers of soci­ety being told to do with less for Gov­ern­ment eco­nomic incom­pe­tence, Auck­land has the largest urban poverty, how will we be impacted?

Issue three tonight: Rod­ney Hide said it would cost $126 mil­lion — the IT blow out for the Auck­land Super City hits over half a bil­lion — who is to blame? Who is going to pay and where are all these sup­posed sav­ings from the amalgamation?

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.
