The law was supposed to stop this

Simon Power touted his name suppression changes as being able to stop people getting name suppression because they were famous:

A well-known former rugby player has pleaded guilty in the Auckland District Court to a charge of assaulting a child.

The sportsman, who was granted interim name suppression, admitted to an incident on September 27 in what police have called an act of excessive discipline.

He was granted name suppression because of his standing in sporting circles and in the community.

Well he should have thought about that when he bashed his kid shouldn’t he. Quite happy for the profile on the field but not happy for the profile for beating a child.

Some tough guy he is, afraid of his own name.

Simon Power won’t care he has retired and got his cushy job at Westpac.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
