Cruel Press in Gay Ute Country

Anna-Lorck-Labour-candidate-in-Tukituki-NZ-HERALD

The Hawkes Bay Today obviously doesn’t really like Anna “Marge” Lorck, Labour’s home-wrecking candidate in Gay Ute Country.

Ms Lorck is running on a regional development ticket. She is trying to harness sentiments that central Government has neglected the provinces. The former journalist and PR lady has branded herself a “vociferous campaigner for regional New Zealanders”. Her speech calls, repeatedly, for “a regional plan”. It is shameless, emotionally charged, manic, a little mad even. If there wasn’t an election on, this kind of behaviour would warrant a sectioning.

It never helps your campaign to have your local paper suggest you are as mad as a cut snake.

She can barely manage to attract a crowd of one not counting her mother. 

I wonder what the proportion of thumbs up is versus fingers up as well!

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.
