An email from a Reader: Gareth Morgan goes Dalek on moggies

A reader emails about Gareth Morgan:

Is Gareth Morgan turning into a Dalek given his call to ‘exterminate’ all moggies?

Given the grand job Gareth is doing at Phoenix FC, if i were a cat, i’d be all a quiver.

When it comes to extermination, Gareth Morgan seems to have fattened up that penguin as an entrée for a lucky orca or a great white shark.  Yet while cats are a walking meowing killing machine, local ecologist, John Flux, studied his own cat for 17 years and found out that native birds were in fact, the winners.

Sure there was some collateral damage, but his moggy also took out 221 mice, 63 rats, 35 rabbits, 4 hares and even, a couple of weasels. All animals more destructive than a single indolent cat, unless you are into weasels and rats of course, eh Gareth!

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.
