The great journalist James Cameron knew my father. He was his doctor. James wrote a wonderful column about my dad Jerry Slattery when he died, which The Guardian has re-published here today as the archive piece on its leader page. It was a bit of a shock to read it again more than 30 years later. I hope they are sharing a whisky somewhere.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
