The Horrid by the numbers

the tipline

A reader emails about the NZ Horrid:


I did some anaylsis of the NZ Horrid on Saturday. The first section was 28 pages.

Of that 28 pages by my calculation 15.8 pages were advertising or 56.4% of the first section.

That included 9 full pages ads and just 3 pages had no ads at all on them.

Somewhere in the midst of all that advertising was hopeless written and bias opinion pieces masquerading as “news”.

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.
