Chisholm Inquiry: NZ Herald undermined Adam Feeley

Yes here is a headline you won’t read in the NZ Herald.

I will let the report speak for itself.


I wonder what Tim Murphy and Shayne Currie have to say about that?

Not much I expect.

For years the Herald has used me for stories, some of which their journalists won awards for their investigations…chickens are coming home to roost and cosy duopoly in the media won’t mention the unmentionable…that their journalists are so bereft of any nouce that they had to rely on a blogger for their stories.

One thing is absolutely clear from the report is that the only people paid to undermine Adam Feeley were NZ Herald journalists.

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.
