Somebody Should Show Leadership, Ctd

Shearer did a 6’20” interview trying to explain his position on the Ports of Auckland this week.

I edited together the stutters, the stammers and the corrections, and they added up to 1’30”.

Nearly a quarter of his entire interview on New Zealand’s number one radio news station was made up of ums and ahs.

He wasn’t briefed and had no clear position.

However, after listening to this, his stance came across just as clear as it was in the whole interview.

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.
