Why aren’t the press mocking the Asset Sale “protests”?

nm

Once again, the media reports “hundreds” protested, and yet their own photo can’t back it up.

The article that goes with the photo reads like it is written by one of the protesters, with only people sympathetic to the protest being quoted and no balancing comment from anyone else.

Any sane newspaper would report that 6 people turned up indicating the Stop Asset Sales protest had run out of steam and lost the support from the public to come out and protest.  But no, “hundreds” protested, always away from the cameras it seems.

Would the paper come out to an event I organise with 6 people attending, and then report it as “hundreds” of people had a rally to support [insert your cause here]?   Of course not.

So why are they doing it?

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.
