David Shearer – Q+Um

David Shearer appeared on Q+A this morning.

I really struggle to take anything he says seriously anymore because of the way he speaks.

A quick edit of this morning’s interview of Mr Invisible on Q+A yielded more than 2 minutes of ums, ahs, and stutters.

Even though he had nothing new to say, it is a wasted opportunity and something that I doubt speech training can fix .

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.
