NEW RULES: Election Day at Whaleoil

As you may have picked up from yesterday’s post, today Whaleoil will not cover New Zealand politics or the election as it is against the law.  At 7pm, the LIVE ELECTION NIGHT post will start, and then all the rules are back to normal.

You too are not allowed to “publish” material that could be seen as commenting on the election, parties, candidates or voting until 7pm.  This includes images.  To limit the number of places moderators have to keep an eye on, previous days’ posts are closed for comments.

Vote, enjoy a day of non-Politics on Whaleoil, and if you do comment, don’t be a dick.

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.
