Notes from an odd world

The luvvies are really going to town on the demise of Mark Weldon.

At the same time they appear to be rewriting history.

Weldon has stepped down following a recent string of high-profile blows, including the loss of popular broadcasters John Campbell and Hilary Barry.


‘Popular’ is an odd choice of word…didn’t John Campbell get the chop due to poor ratings? Why yes he did.

Isn’t Hilary Barry a newsreader? How about her ratings with Mike McRoberts…sinking as fast Campbell’s were.

I guess they can be popular but not rate highly. John Campbell was someone the left didn’t actually watch; they just wanted him there. I’ll bet RadioNZ haven’t increased their ratings in any appreciable and long-term manner by having him there.

The media luvvies all stick together and in this instance they conducted a full pile on to get Mark Weldon.

Media is broken in this country and the cosy duopolies need to be crushed.

If they aren’t then this sort of stuff will happen again and again.

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.
