Now this is just inept from the Herald

One of the Herald editors claimed that his staff were “decent journalists, trained and skilled”.

Yet on a daily basis they serve up complete rubbish. Take the article about the 3d printer designs for a pistol which I have covered extensively for the past few days.

They have decided it is time to run a story on it.

That’s not a spelling mistake.  That’s just misleading. The image isn’t to fluff up the piece, the image is the centre of the article. On top of that the image they have used is of a Beretta 92F albeit with the branding removed/photoshopped out, including the slide stampings and the logo on the grip.

As readers will know the 3d printer design of the pistol bears no resemblance to either a Beretta 92F nor to any other made and milled or cast pistol design. The most comprehensive coverage of the story so far has been from Forbes who also have many photos of the real pistol in question.

Herald journalists are “decent” and “trained and skilled”…well lets just say they must have very different standards to mine.

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.
