Irrelevant? Helen Kelly thinks so

Helen Kelly thinks I am irrelevant.

Yet she took time out of her busy schedule trying to screw over Peter Jackson and other Kiwi employers to comment about a supposed irrelevant blogger.

Council of Trade Unions president Helen Kelly said there had been a concerted attack on unions by Mr Slater. She said Mr Slater was “irrelevant” but was concerned about the port “putting the knife into its own staff”. 

Yeah, so irrelevant that Helen Kelly laid a complaint with Radio Rhema about a 15 minute segment that I did for free once a week with Pat Brittenden. They complained so much and so hard that Radio Rhema management, not blessed with courage told Pat he couldn’t use me anymore.

You’d hardly try and get someone off air if they were irrelevant.

Claire Trevett didn’t think I was irrelevant either  when she rang me yesterday about the Auckland Mayoralty.

Someone who has three articles written about them in just one paper, features in a TV show this morning, and is also in Fairfax is hardly irrelevant…but hey Helen, you just keep on thinking that.

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.
