So Secret You Could Google It

Guyon Espiner went on and on for far too long on 60 Minutes about New Zealand housing “secret trusts” and being some sort of secret tax haven. Silly lefties have jumped all over it. They forget that New Zealanders cannot take advantage of any of these laws.

Anyone wondered though while watching how Espiner could sit at his computer and google links from the Companies Office that showed an offshore director from a holding company was a member of a wealth family in the deepest darkest parts of South America?

The companies register is so transparent Espiner searched it himself. In the meantime proving himself to be completely wrong. If a journalist can find the identity of people involved in this activity from the comfort of their office then it cannot be that secret can it?

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.
