Go on then Bruce Smith, attack the messenger

There is a reason people take me to court Bruce.  It is because they want me to stop telling the truth.

I published the following two paragraphs:

Word from Westland is that Mayoral Candidate Bruce Smith is out to get a bit of utu on the council staff who did not support him and Durham Havill at the Westland Property Company. Both resigned.

and

Sources inside the Westland Council offices say that the staff have been filing away many rants from both Bruce Smith and Durham Havill, thinking that if Smith becomes mayor there will be massive payouts to all the council staff who he has publicly criticised.

Just how exactly are those two paragraphs defamatory?

The remainder was a direct quote from the Greymouth Star.

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.
