Every day it seems there’s someone banging on about fatties and how it’s not their fault and it’s all some big, cunning conspiracy and “corporate takeover” by manufacturers. [On the plus side at least there wasn’t a “sad face” in the article.]

What no sad face?

What no sad face?

This usually leads to calls from do-gooders for more regulation, more restrictions and more taxes. This has got me thinking. 

So-called academics always pull out the old chestnut of “we” need to do this “to protect children”.  As this is all very alarming, the next trick is to paint someone or some industry as the villain and therefore everything they do must be evil and bad and the only reason they exist is to trap kids as young as possible into wanting their products, all in the name of profit.

As a result of that claptrap, they push for bans on advertising.

Then I remembered the TV ads when I was young when didn’t have academic troughers moaning every-day.

I’ll do a series of posts that bring back the good ol’ days. A bit of perspective is needed next time there’s call for advertising bans.

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.
