Right idea, poor execution

The F.A.G. are getting all up in arms about John Key’s mate Stephen McElrea having a go at TV3 for running a propaganda documentary in the week before the election.

“We have a lot of members putting pressure on us to ask Stephen McElrea to resign.

“His actions have shown poor judgment and there are real concerns that as he leads a documentary working group responsible for selecting titles within strands he will bring his political hat to the table in this role,” said acting chairwoman Janette Howe.

So what they are saying is they should be allowed to take tax payers money and attack the government with it, and then whinge about the bloke that stood up and said that is not ok?

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.
