Manufacturing public opinion the TV3 way

It looks like TV3 is going to have another crack at manufacturing the news.

I have just been sent this information about an”exciting new show” they are proposing.


As you may be able to tell from the flyer above, it looks like what they’re trying to do is lure a bunch of Young Nats or those who claim to be pro John Key or pro free market capitalism on to a TV show where it will then be revealed to them that their Nike shoes, iPhones and other accessories they hold dear are brought to them by a much-loved “free market” that thrives on exploiting workers in sweatshops in the third world and other dodgy means of production. Basically trying to make them appear as either ignorant or cold-hearted right wing Key lovers.

It is insulting that the nasty media commies think we are stupid enough to fall for this and shows a new level duplicity and deviousness.

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.
