Labour, Greens, Unions and the NZ Herald are peas in a pod

We saw on Anzac Day that the NZ Herald published a story that only the Labour Party honoured Anzac Day.  At the time, I sai that we might as well call the NZ Herald the Labour Party’s paper of record.

I know some of you think I’m a bit one-eyed when it comes to the NZ Herald bias.

The problem is, the paper’s allegiances are there for anyone who chooses to look.

Take this example.  This is the Save Our Schools Facebook page.  Save Our Schools is an amorphous group that remains unidentified, but is against Charter Schools, and for the Status Quo.

It receives moral support from the Labour Party, the Green Taliban, and the NZEI.

But also the NZ Herald.

My point, if it still needs to be made, is this:  The NZ Herald has clearly nailed its colours against the Labour/Green/Union mast.

Apart from the fact that we all “know” the Herald has a left lean, it is altogether new to have them overtly supporting their causes in social media.

It is time that the Government recognises this, and treats every contact they have with NZ Herald staff as potentially hostile.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
