Is Sanitarium part of a spy plot?

If you read the NZ Herald you would think that Pierre van Heerden, the head of Sanitarium, is some sort of master spy….or perhaps the secret head of the GCSB.

In not one, but two articles about spying and the GCSB they feature an image taken at the launch of the Food in Schools programme.

The first is from Brian Rudman, who obviously didn’t enjoy his trip to the theatre on the weekend since he has written about this and not a review.

The second is from a week ago and by David Fisher and has Sir Bruce Ferguson moaning about standard procedures for people entering GCSB.

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.
