Doesn’t want the media limelight?

Keith Ng says that he reluctantly named his source…I mean who does that anyway…that is another story…because he “isn’t interested in being the media limelight“:

So. The guy who tipped me off is Ira Bailey. He was one of the Urewera 17. He currently works as a system administrator, has a young child, and is not interested in being the media limelight. That’s why he asked for anonymity.

Yes here he was in 2009 actively seeking the limelight:

Environmental activists intend to block roads and enter buildings in Wellington in an attempt to demand immediate action on climate change.

Camp for Climate Action Aotearoa will set up a camp in Upper Hutt next week, aiming to attract about 250 protesters.

Participants Claire Dann and Michal Lelen said direct action was one of the camp’s four main aims.

Ms Dann said: “When we’re talking about climate change, the urgency warrants direct action.”

Action would include street theatre, road blockades and entering buildings, but non-violence would be a bottom line.

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.
