to needy people.

You probably don’t give a shit about what my opinion is; you are simply

too stupid. If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.


I hope you will suffocate in youir xmas dinner!


But at least I will have paid for the dinner, instead of driving from Hamilton to Auckland to sponge off the goodwill of others.

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.
