My thoughts on Richard Prosser and the outrage

I have written what my thoughts are over the outrage over Richard Prosser’s “wogistan” comments over at Truth’s website:

There has been a massive outcry over the comments by Richard Prosser in the latest Investigate Magazine.

That is to be expected when you describe Muslims as “misogynist” and coming from “Wogistan”.

Did Richard Prosser have a right to say what he did? Absolutely he did. 

The Green Taliban make outrageous statements on a daily basis. Hone Harawira has built his political career off the back of racism.

In world there is a contest of ideas. The bad ones sometimes sneak through but by and large the bad ideas and stupid statement deservedly are mocked.

That is what should happen with Richard Prosser.

The rest of my post is about Prosser’s backsliding.

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.
