The friendliness of the media

Twitter is a wonderful thing, but not for the reasons you may think.

It is wonderful because it has laid bare the political alignments and machinations of media ‘personalities’ who unwittingly transmit in the clear their political bias. The re-tweet and tweet away revealing who they chat with, who they listen to and who they think is worthy.

Now look at some of her specific tweets, I’ve also included a little vignette from Katie Bradford-Crozier.

I am thankful for Twitter because it reveals the truth, that our media are biased, not that bias is a bad thing, in fact I welcome it.

I will look at more media relationships in due course.

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.
