Piers Akerman takes on 3 supposed journalists as they giggle and laugh over eroding press freedoms

Anger is building against Stephen Conroy, but there are those in the media that are tacitly supporting the moves.

What do you get when you put a real Journalist in a studio with 3 Labor Sycophants? Amongst the taunts and ridicule, Piers makes his point! Shame on the other three.

Piers Akerman stands up to 3 giggling idiots who purport to be journalists who are sitting by laughing as press freedoms are eroded by a government intent on muzzling the press. He explains his outburst:

It would not be news to readers of this site that this dysfunctional government’s ham-fisted attempts to muzzle the media anger me.

Unfortunately, I permitted that anger to show on the ABC’s Insiders program yesterday. 

Flanked by two people who laughed at the notion that press freedom was threatened, and mocked by the show’s host, I raised my voice.

Perhaps I should not have.

I was angered by their naivete, by their apparent belief that freedom can be trifled with.

I believe freedom is an absolute.

You either have a free press or you do not.

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.
