A public service announcement

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.

Now, Hitler doesn’t like it when people call him Hitler.

He should have considered that possibility when he planted the “don’t ever employ me” swastikas on his face, but his actual name is Te Rangi Jamie Charles Trangmar.

Who prefers it if you call him Marshall.

The Herald has an article celebrating an award by one of their photographers….and then disrespects him with poor captioning of his work.

New Zealand Herald chief photographer Brett Phibbs has been honoured at the Sir Terry McLean national sports journalism awards for the stunning images below. Phibbs won the Nikon Award for best community/sport/recreation/adventure portfolio.
