Sledge of the Day

Ok so non-surprise of the week was a toss up between Jodie Foster telling us all what we knew anyway…that she is gay, and Lance Armstrong telling us what we knew anyway…that he was a drug cheat.

All yawn inducing until you see the sledging.

Andrew Sullivan wasn’t that impressed with Jodie Foster. Not at all…especially her partner for the awards ceremony:

Her date last night, believe it or not, was wife-abusing, homophobic anti-Semite, Mel Gibson.

But that wasn’t the best sledge..this one was…in an email from one of his readers: 

Dear Jodie Foster:

There’s nothing wrong with not publicly acknowledging the open secret of your sexuality for decades as you so chose. There’s also nothing wrong with choosing to kinda-sorta discreetly come out by thanking your partner in a speech in 2007. Yet there is something very tragic and self-contradictory about a bitter diatribe criticizing how other people choose to come out, officially announcing your sexuality on your way out the door of the industry in a non-coming-out speech because you came out “1000 years ago” – while simultaneously defending your fierce desire for privacy – in a brazen attempt to get some of the praise and love you now see the younger gay generation getting for their fearlessness of/indifference to being out… all while being escorted by one of the most well-documented anti-Semitic, homophobic, bigoted assholes in Hollywood history, claiming he “saved” you. If that was indeed your retirement announcement, what a sad end to a stellar career of a brilliant artist. If ever there was a closet you needed to stay in forever, it would be the one marked “Mel Gibson’s friend.

Yow! Bitchy much?

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.
