Liz Gunn – what’s it all about?
Picture: Hiliary Barry and Liz Gunn
The majority of New Zealand minor media, alternative/new media, citizen journalists are novices and listed here. Gunn is the exception as a lawyer turned journalist with a television and radio career that started last century.
Regardless of any current events surrounding Gunn and accusations of conspiracy media and rabbit holes, STUFF News started a cancel culture attack referring to Gunn, who currently runs a minor news platform called FreeNZ, as a “former journalist.”
Jane Mander, historical figure and author of Story of a NZ River, would never be referred to as a former journalist, regardless of her controversial views – the dehumanizing process had begun.
What Gunn reports on is a direct conflict to the government propaganda that funded STUFF News during Covid … FreeNZ is self funded.
Next up was Sean Plunket who led the ongoing character assassination against Gunn. He claimed “Nutters hunt in packs” suggesting that Gunn leads some form of underworld army of the ignorant, who exist in their own echo chamber.
Looking at the subsequent onslaught from the SpinOff, Newshub and anyone else that wanted to join the hunt, one has to ask whether Plunket had the taste of liver and chianti behind his teeth.
This is the fallacy that our mainstream media live with – that if they project their thoughts everyone will agree with them. It’s an intolerable arrogance that’s been growing in size since the late 1970s to a public distrust of today’s mainstream.
Then arrived the witches on their broomsticks, Hillary Barry asking people to keep Liz in their prayers, Lizzie Marvelly and others joining in on social media in an attempt to paint Gunn as mentally unstable.
Inspite of being in the Lion’s Den, Liz Gunn obliged with a statement, as requested by Sean Plunket, to the Platform.
Plunket took great delight in reading the statement in a sarcastic voice intended to dismiss Gunn’s ramble as irrelevant nonsense and to belittle her.
Gunn has a significant audience, many of whom are among the 65,000 vaccine injuries that receive little to no recognition from mainstream media for obvious reasons, and also played a significant role in the coverage of the Tokelau House Arrests written about in the Tokelau Category.
An attempt was made by Plunket and other media to paint her work as irrational and insignificant.
Tokelau although a NZ Dependency is also a UN developing nation and was close to seeing charges of human rights abuses filed with the UN.
No insignificant matter that would have been an international embarrassment to the Ardern administration at the time and to her father the recently departed Administrator of Tokelau.
We take this opportunity to remind Sean Plunket that when he launched The Platform News site, it was under the banner of “Resistance Media“ out to confront mainstream bias and incompetence – so what happened Sean?
Is that the media cesspit you’re contently wallowing in?
