Retraction and Apology

Yesterday I published an article about the Iranian missile test.  In it were two photos of monkeys, one before the flight, and one after.

The monkeys in the photos were clearly not the same.

I, like many others in the international news media, jumped to the obvious conclusion that the monkey didn’t survive the space flight.

Overnight, new information has come to light, and with that in mind, I would like to apologise for misleading my readers.

The monkey has passed its post-flight medical checks, and is absolutely fine.

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.
