Getting the spin in early

We all know the Labour staffers, MPs and union hacks that write The Standard hate National, we get that. However they like to rpetend that they are the enlightened commentators, that they consider their posts and give in depth analysis.

Well, this is the quality of the Standard’s commentary.

They had a post up about the PREFU, an hour and a half before the PREFU was released, condemning National’s economic record based on the PREFU that they hadn’t seen yet, which is still under embargo and in lock-up and saying that only Labour and the Greens had the solution.

The post has since been removed.

I have posted this so that you can all know that their commentary was written well before anyone could have known the details of the the PREFU.

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.
