NZ Herald goes through the looking glass

The media witch hunt has a surreal quality. I feel as if I have gone through the looking glass into a Salvador Dali painting. The NZ Herald has described criticism of Islam made two years ago as “vile anti-Islamic rants” while providing no evidence at all to back up their defamatory claim. They also called the comments “horrific”, which is extreme hyperbole.

I feel that a complaint to the NZ Media Council would be in order (not that I have any faith that they would stand up for truth in this current hysterical climate)

Here is what the NZ Herald had on their Facebook page and here is a comment in response to it calling for the smeared and defamed person to be hanged!

This is just like other media smears of conservative people that have a surreal quality about them. The best example of this is Milo Yiannopoulos.

Milo Yiannopoulos’s parents are Jewish and Catholic but that didn’t stop the media smearing him as anti-Semitic.

He is also a homosexual who is married to a black man but that didn’t stop them smearing him as racist and a homophobe.

This is the kind of insanity we are being fed by the media. They don’t provide evidence; they just make statements which the public are expected to take as gospel.

Another good example is Candace Owens. Candace who is a black American has been accused of being a … wait for it… wait for it… white supremacist.

If the “senior Auckland doctor’s” comments were as “vile” and “horrific” as they claim, they would publish them with the vile bits blacked out. They haven’t published them – so what does that tell you?

It tells me that a reasonable person reading the comments in context to the article they were referring to would see them as nothing more than an opinion based on personal experience and criticism that breaks no laws and that does not incite harm, unlike the comment allowed on the Facebook page of the NZ Herald where they called for the death of the commenter via hanging!

The NZ Herald should be ashamed of themselves. The only media inciting hatred and allowing incitement to kill from commenters are themselves.
