Comment of the Day

I love comments like this…it makes my work so worth while.

Today I took the plunge. I went ahead with something I’ve been thinking about for a long time but never got around to.

I paid for a subscription to Whale Oil.

The thing that tipped me over the edge and made me feel like I just had to, was the (No chinky sounding names there then?) article this morning. I mean it was written right and everything was just there. It had links in it. If I wanted to find what the Writer was talking about all I had to do was just click the link.

You wont get anything like that from the herald or anywhere else. The moderation on this site is elite to any other and commenter’s link me to News story’s around New Zealand and the world that the Media here are to gutless to talk about.

Thanks Brent, really appreciate it.

Without all the support of the Mods, the volunteers, the interns and the Guest posters this job would be a whole lot harder.

I also have to thank the subscribers. You are giving us the weapons to continually improve WOBH and offer new and innovative services.

There are more coming this year and the subscriptions offerings will extend and extend. By all means send me ideas for things. We will assess them and work out if it is feasible to deliver.

WOBH is a real community and that is what news and views should reflect…the community.

Thank you all…when you are tired and sick comments like this warm the heart.

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.
