Trevor Mallard: “Look at me, look at me, look at meeee”

Before we start, a quick lesson

On Facebook, promoted posts appear in News Feed and show up higher so the audience for the post has more chance to see them. Promoted posts are labeled Sponsored. Promoted posts don’t appear in the right column of Facebook.

Well, that ain’t fighting fair.  Trevor’s comments will probably be tax payer funded to appear higher and more prominent than  comments left by everyone else.  I mean, really, who pays to have their Facebook comments pushed into people’s faces?

The only way to level the field is for every other MP to pay for Facebook comments to be promoted over anyone elses.  And they’d all be using our money to do it.

Much more sensible if we didn’t start an comment arms race.  It would only benefit Facebook’s bottom line.

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.
