A response to John Drinnan


John Drinnan, a man who almost never leaves his desk at the Herald sweatshop and who rang everyone about town but lacked the courage to ring me , writes:

“Slater has been unclear about the business plan for his blog and whether it takes money from outsiders such as public relations companies.” 

My response to John Drinnan is:

Drinnan has been unclear about the Herald’s plan to deal with emerging business threats from new media and Drinnan’s feelings allowing him to speculate in a way akin to a smear.

Drinnan’s articles really need warning labels like those shown in this post.

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.
