Basic fact checking astray at Campbell Live again

I t may b small beer but if you are going to slag off councillors for their lawns you could at least simple facts right…like who lives where. i wonder of Campbell Live will apologise for this cock up?

During the show they mixed up George Wood and Ann Hartley’s grass berms mixed up in their story tonight. (near end)   

They described George’s as having a “5 O’clock shadow” and Ann’s as having a “case in personal grooming.”  Except they got it wrong.

It was Ann Hartley’s berm that needed a mow.

The story was pretty pathetic, because of all the places they visited, only two of them would have been affected. Cameron Brewer and Richard Northey…all the others live in areas that never had berm mowing.

Once again media wanting to manufacture a story.

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.
