And these people vote

It’s hard to believe that a professional sports person that has been on more plane flights than most of us could continue to reject the idea that the earth is roughly spherical.

Shaquille O’Neal, a man tall enough to see the curvature of the earth, believes there is no such thing.

The 2.16m tall Hall of Fame former basketballer believes the earth is flat, joining a number of current NBA players who believe the globe isn’t a globe at all.

In February, Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving revealed that he thinks the Earth is flat, rather than a sphere.

To be honest, it is kind of hard to believe there are people living UNDER you right now.

Gravity.  How can a object fall to the ground and at the same time go in the exact opposite direction at the other side of the round earth?  It makes no sense.

Just goes to show that if you have talent, you don’t have to worry about little details like physics.

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.
