Love or subjugation?

Have you seen this little lifestyle gem on Stuff today?

Check photo 2 – yep, the one with the 15 year old groom and the 14 year old bride with her head in a sack.

Ahmed Soboh, 15 and his bride Tala, 14, stand inside Tala's house which was damaged during an Israeli strike in 2009, during their wedding party in September, 2013.

Apparently Fairfax staffers seem to think that child marriage in the Palestinian territory is actually ‘Love Through the Barricades’.

They hat-tipped the Daily Mail so I went there to see the images, and there were many more to choose from, but bizarrely not the child marriage photo.

I thought there was considerable international effort going in to stopping child marriage, but Stuff seem to think it’s a beautiful thing.

Maybe I’m being a bit precious. Or I’m not.

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.
