Who is the Mole?

David Fisher catches up two days late after this blog wrote about the Labour’s “Mole”:

The partner of the chief press secretary to Labour leader David Shearer has been drawn into the row over alleged leaks after being exposed as a former GCSB spy agency employee.

[Redacted] is an academic who lives with former New Zealand Herald and TVNZ journalist Fran Mold. She now works as an adviser to Mr Shearer.

Yesterday NewstalkZB reported [Redacted] was the source for Mr Shearer’s claims the Prime Minister had joked with GCSB staff about Kim Dotcom in the agency’s cafeteria.

Ms Mold and [Redacted] did not respond to messages.

Fisher must have pulled his head out of DotCon’s arse for five minutes to catch up on this.

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.
