What’s happened to Captain Panic Pants?

National is having a shocker. First there is Hekia Parata creating bad news cycle after bad news cycle.

Then there was the Peter Dunne’s stupid car park tax. Now there is his even stupider cellphone tax

Why isn’t someone stopping them from doing anything stupid?

That used to be Captain Panic Pants’ role, but he must have gone MIA.

The car park tax was a free hit for Labour. They get another free hit a week later with the cellphone tax. Someone in National needs to be held to account for terrible political mismanagement.

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.
