Further to my posts from yesterday, here, and here, and today’s here, where I take an article of Anna Turner at The Press and show her not to Pimp the Poor by slanting government inaction where there isn’t any, it turns out The Press has had an editorial change of heart on the issue.

Anna Turner may no longer be as motivated to Pimp the Poor, as her own paper has thrown her under the bus in an editorial today:

Getting a clear and accurate picture of the housing market in Christchurch since the earthquakes is not easy.

Anecdotal accounts of a shortage of houses available to rent or buy and of rocketing prices abound, but there have been few hard figures about the wider reality.

The suggestion by some that a few desperate cases of hardship represented a wider crisis was not accurate.

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.
