I wouldn’t either

Deborah Coddington would live next door to Nicky Hager. I wouldn’t live next door to smelly hippies either.

I wouldn’t like to live next door to Nicky Hager. I sense, from his pontifications about New Zealand’s involvement in Afghanistan, that if he was my neighbour and my family was attacked, Hager would decline to get involved.

As well as other peaceniks, isolationists and John Minto-adoring surrender monkeys, I’d be left to fight my own battles. My fate would be packaged as “Other People’s Wars”.

Simplistic analogy, comparing domestic crime with international wars, civil or otherwise – do we turn our backs when viciousness is perpetrated against human beings just because they happen to live hundreds of thousands of miles away?

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.
