Oh, NZ journalist receives death threats. That’s a pan-media story these days?

When it happens to me it’s just desserts and the natural consequences of my unwanted behaviour.

One comment read: “You should probably euthanize yourself before publicly humiliating even more.”

Another said: “If any pitbull attacks again I hope its [sic] you for your f***** up comments!!!”

MediaWorks contacted police who have since acted; one person has been issued a warning.

Ferals with Internet access.  

It happened on the West Coast, it is happening now, it will continue to happen.

I’m looking forward to the news that Garner’s emails and Facebook page have been hacked, and Hager will release a book about it for the 2017 election.

Because that’s the next step when a right-wing Journalist gets death threats.

No, of course not.

There are no parallels here whatsoever.

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.
