Did you mean ‘cock’, or coût, or perhaps court?

The Herald on Sunday, who employ “decent journalists, trained and skilled” just keep on lowering the standards of mainstream media in New Zealand. Here is another fine effort from the team employed by Bryce Johns, who implored me to become like his staff…”decent journalists, trained and skilled”.

I’ve heard of cock blocking, but never cout blocking

Perhaps they were using coût, the french word for cost…to signify what these stuff ups are doing to their readership.

Though…wait…apparently despite all the figures heading southwards people are actually increasing their readership of the Herald…when you have to include website traffic in your readership figures you know you are losing right?

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.
