What follows is an actual email exchange today; in the interests of being the “most transparent Freedom Movement ever” I include it.
My name is William Hewett and I work for TV3/Newshub. We have seen reports that five kids collapsed at the North Shore Vaccination centre on Monday. We have also seen the video of Liz Gunn questioning TV1 reporters about it.
The Ministry of Health has denied this incident ever happened. We are looking into it and are wondering if you have any evidence.

Dear Mr Hewett
Liz Gunn is really very busy right now, as you can only imagine? So is everyone else, so it falls to me, the Chief Orange Peeler, to give you a reply:
Wow, you heard reports of that happening too? That is interesting. I wonder, can you investigate those reports, or simply take the word of a government department that has no interest in investigating them itself? Let’s be realistic; the same government that pays your wages, that pays for unending amounts of propaganda, and I expect an impartial press? How naive I am!
No sir, I am not accredited press, capable of gaining entry into any of these vaccination tents, let alone ambulance and hospital records. And from what I hear, the medical staff are too fearful to keep real records anyway, so what would be the point? Shouldn’t we leave it to the professionals? And yet you, the professional, ask us for evidence.
Let us assume that there are no long term studies done on an experimental gene therapy drug. Let us assume that the short term studies showed disastrous results, but were stopped prematurely because they were inconvenient. Let us also assume that the WHO have said it’s not a good idea to inject this experimental drug into young children. Now, with all of those assumptions out of the way, it is only reasonable to assume that there would be some sort of casualties when that drug was injected into the young children. I think that is neither surprising nor newsworthy. It is merely expected.
What Liz Gunn went to the vaccination tent to do was to find out what was going on, from an independent media POV. Whilst there she had heard that there was the issue with some of the children in the cars. She tried to verify this, but was turned away because she was not accredited media. Then she saw some accredited media, asked them about it, and asked them to do their jobs. You know, those investigative journalist thingies? I know they are a lot smarter than we are, or certainly than I am, but nevertheless, I would have expected that a report of children being hurt would have aroused their interest slightly? What do you think? I think that is the news item; mainstream media is only interested in reporting the spin from their masters in government. Not really news, I know, but it makes for interesting viewing.
And then we find that whilst you make appearances of wanting to know what the evidence is, you write pieces like this: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/01/covid-19-ministry-of-health-denies-viral-claim-children-collapsed-at-north-shore-vaccination-centre.html , where you lie; “One of those spreading the claim is former TV host Liz Gunn, who was filmed questioning a One News reporter why she wasn’t reporting on the rumour.” Tell me, oh learned professional, how it is that one can ask someone about a rumour, and be spreading a claim at the same time? She did ask them about the rumour, but you know that, because it is in the video. She did not spread any claim. And that is your lie. My mummy told me lies are not good things, and that is not how we should treat other people. Maybe you could learn from my mummy?
What you did there was called an ad hominem attack, but I’m sure you know that. Attacking the independent media’s character by insinuating they were spreading baseless claims. As I pointed out; those claims are not baseless, but rather unfortunately expected.
Shall I go into the rest of your useless article? What’s the point? You interview some random Auckland councillor to see what he thinks, as if it matters.
So my question, Mr Professional Reporter Man, is the same as Liz’s:
When are you clowns going to get off you fat arses and do the real job of real journalists?
Or maybe hire Liz to teach you how, as you have obviously lost your way?
