Campbell Live takes bullying to new levels

Lindsay Mitchell correctly points out that Campbell Live can never again credibly cover any story about bullying after their scurrilous attack piece last night.

Rebecca Wright acted like a shrieking harpy as she pursued John Palino…shouting over him, not letting him speak and shoving a camera in his face designed from the angles and approach to frame the story her way.

You have to ask why Campbell Live hasn’t done the same to Len Brown, instead of their incredibly soft hug piece two weeks ago.

It was shameful television.

The John Campbell Show made a rare appearance on my TV screen tonight. His hectoring, biased style turned me off long since. But trailers during the TV3 News persuaded me to stay tuned. Another chance wasn’t warranted though. 

His protege went stalking John Palino with some “serious questions, SERIOUS QUESTIONS.” One actually. Why had he spent so long in the car with Bevan Chuang? Now, I can imagine many plausible answers to this. Some good, some not so good. But Palino maintains he talked about the threatening texts at her request. He engaged with the shouty she-Campbell to the best of his ability referring her back to a comprehensive statement he’d released earlier and continuing to hold that he didn’t know about the Chuang/Brown affair. All the time she over-talked, interrupted, and ear-bashed Palino. He did well to stay as calm as he did.

Then we flick back to the studio where Campbell oh so reasonably and humbly insists that the invitation was open to Mr Palino to go on the show and tell his side of the story. Give me a break. He would have been subjected to even worse thuggery than he met in the carpark.

Once again the left wing media in New Zealand are creating victims of innocent people and ignoring the real story, that of Len Brown and his shameful behaviour.

I doubt either John Campbell or Rebecca Wright would try such a stunt on me…pathetic cowardly bullies.

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.
