Some Herald Love via the Tipline

The headline states that a man was convicted for pushing a cop off a bike.

However, reading the article it turns out that the headline is a fabrication and it is stated twice that what actually happened is a man pushed a bike in front of a car driven by an off duty cop.

The story is dated 2 and a half weeks ago and the Herald hasn’t corrected it so I assume it’s intentional, a false and sensational headline to get people to read a mundane article.


Headline: Man bashed partner with shovel, court told

Photo: A stock image of a shovel (actually, a spade). You’d think that with such a grim story, if they couldn’t find a suitable photo they would just run it without a photo at all.

Instead, they use an almost comical picture.

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.
