The blueprint for media coverage

I copped a lot of flack yesterday because for some reason you should stop what you normally do when a psychopathic, dysfunctional twat goes on rampage and cry a river of tears for people you don’t know.

Now don’t get me wrong, it is terrible what has gone on in China and in the US, but really having a journalist/biographer tweet abuse at you like sanctimonious cocks when their own paper is plastering the news all over their front page is just a bit beyond the pale.

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.
