Obama, nor a representative from the US turned up for the leaders photo op in Paris.

To make amends John Kerry rolled out one of my favourite singers, James Taylor.

What resulted was cringeworthy in the extreme.

What a shambles.

Truth Revolt reports too:

Secretary of State John Kerry is in France today to “share a big hug” with Paris after the United States skipped the unity march attended by over a million people and the leaders of over 40 nations. As part of his serious, diplomatic snuggle fest, Kerry brought in James Taylor to woo Parisians with a live performance of “You’ve Got A Friend.”

This led to immediate mockery on Twitter, of course. As diplomatic overtures go, arranging an impromptu concert during a cuddle mission isn’t America’s proudest moment…

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.
