When it comes to smearing, there’s Whaleoil. And then there are the real professionals

Press Gallery journo Laura McQuillan doubles down on dirty:


Nice one.   Got to keep the “Key” smearing going somehow.    Guilt by association, twice removed.  That’s an expert smear right there.

You might think I’m being harsh, and that was just a small error of judgement.



So, here in New Zealand we’ve had a pretty well established rule about not involving non-political family members in political smears.   “Even” I adhere to that.

The accusations are that I am vile, despicable and the one that lowers the standards.

Not so.  Please note exhibits A and B above.

Of course, the people saying that I a vile, despicable and lower standards are the same people belonging to the profession so ably represented by the aforementioned Gallery journo.

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.
