Winners are grinners, thanks John

John Armstrong tries to have a dig while at the same time declaring me a winner of the year…ah and there is yet another cartoon about me.

He will be the next target of Giovanni Tiso’s Stalinist inspired online bullying.

Winners: Andrew Little; Paula Bennett; Cameron Slater. Has Labour’s luck finally changed? Little nearly did not make it back into Parliament following Labour’s dreadful election. His victory in the party’s subsequent leadership contest could hardly have been slimmer. But he has taken on the cloak of leadership with gusto. Labour finally has a game-changer. National would be foolish to still believe otherwise.

Bennett got the jobs she wanted in the Cabinet reshuffle. Now positioned as deputy leader-in-waiting as a minimum – and could go even higher when Key eventually departs.

Slater got slam-dunked by Dirty Politics; his influence within the corridors of power has consequently diminished. Outside, it has grown exponentially. Bad publicity is good news for Whale Oil.

I think John Armstrong has been taking keyboard interviewing classes from John Drinnan.

I was not slam-dunked by Dirty Politics. his own paper kept on publicising my incredible ability to control John Key, most of cabinet, the Police, the SIS, the GCSB and a feared gang…they even produced infographics showing that I was the centre of a vast network, the spider at the core of the web, a literal embodiment of House of Cards.

Emmerson has produced more cartoons about me than anyone else, and I’ve sold more Herald’s than their best paper boy on Queen Street and Len Brown, and even then the Len Brown story came from me.

I’m surprised I wasn’t invited to the NZME. Christmas party and given Most Valued Employee status for my contribution to their bottom line.

Meanwhile I just keep on winning accolades, thanks to John Armstrong for keeping the media myth about Cameron Slater alive.

Winners are grinners..

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.
