Know your hypocrite: Andrea Vance


What, pray tell, is upsetting our News of the World trained lass?  


The article starts with “Google secretly gave..”  and then later it says “Google notified the three Wikileaks staff..”

Is that what Andrea is angry about?   Bad reporting?

Or is it something else?

It also says “…warrants were issued by US District Court…”, and “investigation of alleged conspiracy to commit espionage”.

Is this what Andrea is angry about?  The fact that people were intending to undermine the sovereign security of a nation by providing information to its enemies?  Could that be it?

Or is it something else?

Is it that the woman who is News-of-the-World-we-hack-private-phones trained is upset about journalists having their emails accessed by authorities with a legally obtained warrant?

In that case, where was her outrage when the New Zealand media were all over my emails which were illegally obtained but feasted over for months?

Andrea Vance is an intellectual lightweight.   She’s quite happy with a journalist having his emails stolen and then the media using it liberally without regard for privacy, while at the same time being unhappy when a government seeks a legal search warrant and even informs the people of this fact.

You have some pretty screwed up priorities Andrea.

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.
