Citizen A – 28 July 2011

Citizen A this week Martyn Bradbury hosts the debate between Scoop Co-Editor Selwyn Manning and Whaleoil blogster Cameron Slater.

Issue 1: Discussions on suicide and child poverty this week saw the Maori Party’s MP Te Ururoa Flavell suggest those who take their own lives should be buried away from others. Is there any merit to this seemingly awful approach that Flavell advocates? And are those on the bottom being looked after or not?

Issue 2: Prime Minister John Key visits Washington and all he got was the lousy US Marines – The panel assesses Key’s romp around the USA and analyses his comments regarding Norway and Afghanistan.

Issue 3: Is the Rugby World Cup going to be an economic fizzier for Auckland, and New Zealand?

Plus there’s a final word from each of the panel.

Citizen-A broadcasts on Sky channel 89 & Freeview channel 21 on Thursday and Sunday evenings. Also, check out Bomber onFacebook…

The show broadcasts weekly on Triangle/Stratos TV and on Scoop.

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.
