Get “Trademe” to auction it

I see Matt McCarten’s latest publicity stunt is to sell his life insurance policy to help settle his debts before he croaks. The headling at NBR made me wonder whether his mate and collaborator Matthew Hooton had arrange for iPredict to run stocks on McCarten’s demise.

On reading the article I saw he was trying to sell the policy.

He would be much better off getting “Trademe” Trev to auction it…after all he gets 70+% profit margins on his resells.

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.
