WTF? Whaleoil wins the best blog award at the Canon media awards. Well its no surprise when the main judge for the award is National party tea-bagger Debora Hill Cone.
And to top it off, Canon’s reputation has been damaged by being associated with Whaleoil.
It just goes to show the power of the blog. The mainstream media outlets must be sh1tting themselves as they are about to be ejected into irrelevance. Eraka’s blog must have come close to winning the award though ;-D
Maybe next year!
“Remember when Slater described a Kings student who drank himself to death as “a toffee-nosed school boy, a dead thief and a liar who couldn’t handle his piss. I always said King’s boys were poofs.”
Remember when Slater published all the details of businessman Matt Blomfield whose stolen computer he ‘obtained’?
Remember when he was convicted of breaching a variety of name suppression orders?
Remember when Slater published the personal employment details of a wharf protestor?
Remember when Slater posted a fake Green Party press release that inspired threats of violence against Russel Norman?
Remember when Slater publicized a doctored interview with Jim Anderton edited into Anderton saying an earthquake would need to strike for him to lose the Christchurch mayoralty?
Remember when Slater was wanting looters in Christchurch to be shot in the stomach so that the death would be slow and painful?
Remember when he claimed Chris Carter’s mother who was dead for 12 years was still using a taxpayer cell phone?
Canon should be ashamed. How ugly that such a hateful person can be celebrated by a mainstream media awards ceremony. How on earth was Deborah Hill Cone allowed to be the judge? Toby Manhire and Giovanni Tiso are one million times more talented than Slater.
