Herald on Shearer’s big day tomorrow

 The NZ Herald

The Herald editorial this morning explores the expectations of David Sherarer’s big outing this Thursday following his disastrous policy re-heat:

This misstep means an even more critical eye will be turned to what is being billed as his first major policy speech tomorrow.

In this Mr Shearer will discuss where he plans to take the Labour Party. He must make a sizeable impact, not least in suggesting that the party has learned the lessons of its humiliating election defeat and is more in touch with the sentiment of much of the electorate.

He must also confirm that substantial change is in the air, and that Labour’s new leader is capable of making better and more considered choices.

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.
