Guy Hatchard: Dragging mainstream media back to the real world step by step

Mainstream media news

Yesterday the NZ Herald, our most read legacy media newspaper, published an article “Australian woman reveals heartbreak as ‘loving’ husband sucked into conspiracies”.

The article purported to tell the story of an anonymous woman in Western Australia whose ‘gentle kind loving husband’ had fallen into an ‘antivaxxer conspiracy cult’.

According to the woman, her hapless husband erroneously believed the vaccine was experimental since no long term studies had been completed. He asserted that it did not provide immunity from infection or prevent transmission. He also warned of adverse effects which might result in death.

The woman professed to love her husband dearly and mentioned his high IQ, but referred to him as a ‘freedumb fighter’ whose stance on mRNA vaccine safety amounted to ‘domestic abuse’.

The article drew on the expertise of Kim Cullen who I found has a master’s degree (not a doctorate) in organisational psychology (not a clinical qualification). She described a range of possible sources for the husband’s opinions including a personality disorder, feelings of vulnerability and isolation, pride and superiority, asserting control, the internet, and crucially the need to cling to unfounded false beliefs to avoid embarrassment.

At this point in the pandemic, I think you must be aware that mRNA does not stop Covid transmission, infection or indeed reinfection, so you may be harbouring secret feelings of sympathy for some of these views. You might also be wondering if it is the NZ Herald editorial staff who are “clinging to unfounded false beliefs to avoid embarrassment”. Why on earth did the Herald print this appalling article?

A few days ago Ministry of Health researchers secured publication of their preprint paper in the Lancet “Adverse Events Following the BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine (Pfizer-BioNtech) in Aotearoa New Zealand”. The paper reveals there is a statistically significant association between Pfizer mRNA vaccination and both Myocarditis and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Here in little New Zealand, you wouldn’t know AKI was a potential side effect of mRNA vaccination. The Herald has not covered it. Instead choosing to print the dreadful tripe above.

Many Kiwi’s are no longer able to follow the Herald uncritically because it doesn’t fit with reality on the ground. We are living in a country with an unprecedented high rate of excess all-cause mortality and an overwhelmed health service. I now have four vaccinated friends who have developed debilitating kidney disease since the shot, but if you want to read more about the NZ study, you will need to read about it in the British press. 

The MoH study only looked at mRNA vaccine outcomes for 21 days after the shot, validating the husband’s point—the long term outcomes remain unassessed. Or are they really unknown? Read this substack article assessing the evidence for longer term serious myocarditis outcomes following mRNA vaccination.

Nor are long term outcomes unknown to the relatives of those adversely affected by mRNA vaccines (there are tens of thousands affected in NZ), but they would be unknown to those relying exclusively upon the NZ Herald . They would naturally still believe against all up-to-date published evidence that the vaccine is protecting them from serious illness and death (it isn’t).

So the NZ Ministry of Health has started to come clean, but MSM hasn’t. Why? We don’t really know. We are left with speculation. Do sources of advertising revenue come with conditions attached? Does the media have signed agreements with the government that preclude coverage that might lead to vaccine hesitancy, possibly conditions of generous government subsidies?

If that is the case, it is undermining our Kiwi culture which is one of trust. For a long time there has been an assumption of honesty. In 2021 New Zealand retained top ranking as the world’s least corrupt nation. The Hon. Kris Faafoi, Minister of Justice commented:

“New Zealand has a well-deserved reputation for being relatively free of corruption, with a high level of public trust in government built on a foundation of transparency.”

At that time in January 2022 Faafoi thought the government pandemic response would send New Zealand into the stratosphere of anti-corruption scores, but by mid year, much like Ardern, he decided to exit parliament to “spend more time with his family” and by some lucky chance almost immediately landed a job as head of a lobbying and PR firm.

Our culture of transparency has been eroded during the pandemic, the government used the historical record of Kiwi trust as a cover for their absolute rejection of concerns about mRNA vaccine safety. As it has turned out, transparency would have served us well. Instead we have been subjected to a ‘safe and effective’ media narrative for two years paid for through government grants and reinforced with unfounded attacks against counter narratives funded directly by the Prime Minister’s office. 

We have learned a lot about society during the pandemic. The glue of public trust is truth and transparency. Without it we are left with the fog of uncertainty and fear of the unknown. This equates with elevated levels of individual and social stress well known to be associated with negative social outcomes including crime, low educational achievement, family violence, economic under performance, and high rates of illness.

Despite having the data to do so, the MoH has not undertaken any investigation to determine if there is any correlation between all cause deaths and vaccine status over the longer term. This simple procedure would settle any controversy. It hasn’t happened. We are being kept in the dark. Requests put to the Minister of Health have been met with deafening silence. Why?

It may seem to politicians and MSM that there would be a downside to admitting inaccuracies, mistakes, or dare I say ‘fault’, but it will eventually all come out, it already is. The UK has abandoned mRNA vaccination for the under 50’s, as have a number of other countries. A growing number of senior UK medical specialists are asking questions about hugely elevated rates of heart disease and rapid onset or recurrence of cancers.

There is now not only no point in postponing a reckoning with the emerging scientific picture of a very wide range of long term adverse effects, but there will be a huge downside if it is delayed any longer. In the weird Herald article, the husband clearly had some valid concerns about mRNA vaccines, while the woman was misinformed by MSM. A carefully curated discussion in the media along with some public debates will put everyone back on an even playing field. 

The opportunity to undertake cross examination of government witnesses in high court actions has also been so far missing in action. Curiously the courts have deferred to the government for scientific advice. Since when was scientific verity the sole prerogative of government departments?

It is clear that detailed knowledge of adverse effects of mRNA vaccines would enable GPs and hospital staff to deal appropriately and sympathetically with injury. It would also enable doctors and medical staff to relay factual informed consent to patients. This has not happened so far. 

Transparency would also help to heal some family rifts like the one reported so one-sidedly by the Herald. Under the circumstances, the husband should be exonerated for thinking that truth doesn’t count for much when it comes to modern democracy and mainstream news reporting. How many extra sudden deaths are required before the media grows a conscience and starts asking questions? It is time to level up.

Our new Prime Minister Chris Hipkins promises he is going to re-evaluate unpopular Labour policies. Is he also going to re-evaluate misleading ones? We hope so. No point in postponing the inevitable. As Shakespeare said “The truth will out”.

  1. Thank you Guy for your integrity and relentless efforts to deliver.

    Hypocrisy. You know the truth when they start hearing politicians and msm loudly and proudly declaring the opposite.

    This revolving door lobbying trick is simply dishonesty and deciept by Kris Faafoi. Corruption. Very revealing Guy.

    As for the mindless crap in the Herald, does anyone read it anymore? It sounds like a trashy AU weekly magazine article. Sinking low isn’t it.

    Their moto being “No news is good news” just keep printing those no news stories, that’s what we like to hear. Nothing.

  2. I have emailed all the people in the media, ‘experts’ and other commenters that I have addresses for that have been promoting the vaccine and maligning anyone who goes against. I am guilty, but not ashamed of promoting vaccine hesitancy.

    I wanted to know when they will be advising their audience of the 1 in 800 chance of serious ADR. And also the number needed to vaccinate to prevent one hospitalisation. Obviously the UK health system must be aware of these numbers, why isn’t ours.

    Like you said Guy, the truth will come out. The longer they take to start telling their audience the smaller it will be in the future when people realise the bs they have been fed by these media organisations.

    I said this to some of them nearly 2 years ago when the issues with the vaccines were already becoming apparent.

    And Medsafe. Can only be an oxymoron when they let this continue.

    Hesitancy to a hurried medicine is rational, not something to be shamed for.

  3. Thank you Guy Hatchard. Yet again, you have articulated what I have wanted to express with words and phrases I could not find.

    The history our country has with honesty and truth may not be as shiny as it may have appeared, but that perception and the trust enjoyed by politicians and bureaucrats has been poorly spent.

    Thanks to you and others, your continued effort to awaken and inform is beginning to raise the overall awareness of the manipulation, dishonesty and corruption of the political doctrine of this era. All sides of the political spectrum have betrayed what little confidence we may have had in their ability to wisely steer this nation forward for the benefit of all.

    You give me hope, that there are people good enough and smart enough that might guide and correct our course into this uncertain furture.
