Name Suppression – Compare and Contrast

Two stories, two different outcomes:

Ex AB who bashes his kid – name suppression
Regular mum who defends her child – fully identified including photgraphs

The contrast in the two cases shows how contemptible name suppression has become. Basically if you are famous and can afford a reasonable lawyer the courts will protect your fame even when you commit infamous crimes against children.

I hope Judith Collins gets the job of Justice Minister so she can do what Simon Power was too afraid to do.

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.
