The judge hilariously was the viciously hard right and totally irrelevant Deborah Hill Cone.
The disgusting Len Brown story was a horrific piece of gutter journalism written by Slater while his Father just happened to be the campaign manager for Len’s rival. The manner in which Luigi Wewege attempted to pressure Bevan Chuang into taping the sex was as ugly as it gets.
This week he has disgustingly dredged up old photos of Moana Dotcom and he has previously called a person who died in a car accident ‘feral’ for speeding while taking photos of himself speeding.
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 somehow 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.
Let’s hope his defamation court case wipes the smirk off his face.
So disappointedly ugly. For shame Canon. For shame.
