Outrageous spin

Look at this outrageous spin from Jonathan Milne at the Herald on Sunday:

It started with an innocent mistake by a cameraman, unable to retrieve his radio microphone from the table as the media were herded out.

When he tried to get it back afterwards, one of Key’s staff told him it had been handed to police. It hadn’t occurred to him that it might have picked up the conversation – till he returned to his office and realised he had inadvertently recorded the conversation.

This is unadulterated horsehit. It flies in the face of other articles and statements from both the cameraman and the Herald on Sunday.

I think when the true facts of the cameraman’s actions make the light of day Jonathan Milne is going to feel very silly indeed with those statements.

The Herald on Sunday has been caught pants down and they are trying to minimise the damage.

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.
