To: “[email protected]” <[email protected]>

Hi Cameron,

I wanted to clarify something following your commentary on 2degrees advertising. There’s no specific boycott of Whaleoil – sites such as the Daily Blog are also not featuring our ads until after September 20.

Our decision to stop advertising on political blog sites was one we made based on a number of complaints from customers with views from both ends of the political spectrum.

We have no political position and for this reason we made a decision to stop advertising on political blog sites until after the election. We’ll review things then.

As a challenger company, we have built our business by taking a different approach to other organisations. Although we respect everyone’s views and understand some people won’t agree with our decision, this is the approach we are taking until after the election.  

Regards

Mat

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.
