A proper campaign then

There are those that embrace negative politics and those that run screaming for their mummies if anyone dares tell the truth about politicians.

People are upset that Len Brown had the truth told about him…look at what happens in the US.

They know how to run proper campaigns.

It was a nasty election—the kind that would have made her grandmother proud. During the campaign, present-day photos circulated showing her opponent John Sweeney at a fraternity party; questions were raised about money he received from disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff; and a police report was leaked in which Sweeney’s wife said her husband was “knocking her around the house.” 

Sweeney tried unsuccessfully to paint Gillibrand as just another New York City carpetbagger, but Gillibrand’s connections to the area were evident. Many of the campaign staff spent the campaign living in Noonan’s old house. Gillibrand won with 53 percent of the vote.

Negative campaigns are by far the most truthful.

The rest is just window dressing. I really don’t know why people get upset about it all.

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.
