Seasoned reporters extremely angry about Mediaworks’ lack of integrity

I wish we could have had a non-censored version of Hosking’s thoughts on this.   The fact that a media organisation broke a Reserve Bank embargo while headed by the ex CEO of the NZ Stock Exchange is just unforgivable.

I like how the Reserve Bank has withdrawn access to all media organisations.  It’s like holding back the whole class for something one kid did.  The pressure on Mediaworks will be palpable.

I wish the media had similarly come together over Mediaworks’ Heather du Plessis-Allan “loophole” stunt.  At the time all the media fell in behind her against the police and the public in general.   As we’ve seen over the last few days with Australian media heading off to another country to try and kidnap a child, there are just some organisations that have lost their way.

In New Zealand, Mediaworks and the NZ Herald are the most morally bankrupt media organisations by consistently doing what they know is wrong.  And at times, illegal.

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.
