Yesterday Ben Rachinger’s story was told on The Nation – one part of it at least, the allegation (well supported by documentary evidence) that Cameron Slater offered him $5,000 to hack this blog. (Wasted money Cameron, there’s nothing here to see!) You can watch The Nation spot online here.
Coverage that followed:
Martyn Bradbury, who hates us so much that he cannot even bear to mention our name, makes some good points in:

Slater’s bizarre response to the allegations of hacking
Cameron Slater is still deleting any mention of this story on whaleoil, presumably so his loyal readers don’t learn that he keeps asking them for money while giving it (so he claims) to Ben out of the goodness of heart. He also has a bridge for sale.
A bit of Twitter:
