Imperator Fish on Red Alert

Scott Yorke at Imperator Fish is not impressed with Clare Curran’s ill informed attack on David Farrar.

Mr Mallard said he was looking forward to getting heavily into blogging this year.

“We’ve all had some time off and are refreshed, and we’re ready to take the battle to David Farrar.

“We want to focus on the issues that are important to ordinary New Zealanders. Jobs, the economy, and David Farrar.”

“Red Alert is the perfect vehicle to enable Labour to engage with an important demographic: the internet savvy, and David Farrar.”

Ms Curran said she was not perturbed by what many in the media and blogosphere referred to as social media own-goals from Mallard and herself.

“I’m sure most people are mature enough to see through the nonsense pedalled by the Tory media and their stooges. David Farrar,” said Ms Curran.

“We are not interested in all that negativity. We want to start a dialogue with ordinary New Zealanders about the things that matter. And David Farrar.

“Starting next week we’re going to be posting about all the things that David Farrar is wrong about. Then when we’ve done that we want to start an open discussion on all the reasons why David Farrar is an enemy of democracy. We’re hoping that by the end of it we’ll have so destroyed David Farrar’s reputation that nobody will ever again take seriously anything said or written by David Farrar.”

Trevor Mallard said he expected big things from the Labour blogsite in 2012.

“We want Labour to hit the ground running in 2012, and to push National hard. Red Alert is going to be a potent weapon in that fight. That’s why we’re going to do our own thing and not worry about what others in the media and blogosphere have to say about us. David Farrar.”

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.
