A wife beater, really?

Cactus Kate blogs about Shearer’s latest attempt at looking like everyman…running in a wife beater…something another senior political figure would find appropriate:

Props – 1/5 – running man no props.

Clothes – 4/5 – black is slimming and thank god unlike other Labour and Kermit the Frog MP’s was not wearing the dreaded lycra. Hallelujah for that. Perhaps black socks better?

Chest – 3/5 – needs some gym time to build up some muscle, bandy, skinny and nowhere near sweaty enough for a man on a run.

Audience – 1/5 – how many people actually watch The Nation? I would hazard a guess less than the number that read Whaleoil in a day. Seems a waste of an entire day of footage really.

Sex Symbol Attempt 9/20.

Needs to do better.

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.
