Manufacturing a story the Herald way

An observant reader emails:

Hi Cameron,

I had a dejadejavu when I saw this story this morning. Could it really be?

Yes, I’ve found the links on their own website! (see below)…. the Herald has run this totally speculative story THREE times, and almost identically I think.

Regards,

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.
