The NZ Herald Employs Another Bigot

Filed under: General — triassic @ 9:50 am Wed 26th October 2016

Rachel Stewart is yet another columnist that treats myths as facts. I am appalled by the abuse dished out to her by trolls but I am equally appalled by her using her position as a journalist to further unfairly denigrate the Chiefs rugby team in ‘For the Love of the Game‘ The Herald itself reported the truth in this matter. I find it stimulating reading when a journalist has a chip on their shoulder and they write with passion using facts to get their point across but Rachel uses ‘here say’ and innuendos to denigrate masculinity. That the NZ Herald editor let her article get printed with its inaccurate content leads me to believe that this is no longer a ‘news paper’ but a gossip magazine.
Rachael appears to have her own demons to deal with.


  1. The Aaron Smith incident is not an incident it is just fuel for the fire that is feminism. Get a life Rachel you are boring.
    I have read an article on stuff about a woman teacher getting a slap on the wrist for making a false rape allegation. That is an important issue. Nz is a matriarchy and gyneocentric hell. It is lawless. Dont expect a fair trial or decency here.

  2. Clearly “journalists” have learnt nothing following the Duke University Lacrosse case. They continue to “report” innuendoes as facts and when they discover that none of it is true, they continue to imply that they are still true.

  3. It’s a shame the rugby team bosses do not challenge b.s. from the time the evidence shows it to be so, and that they did not lay complaints against the people who offended against Aaron Smith’s privacy. It would be a good idea for them to sue the Herald for continuing to publish misinformation. It would be good for the men’s movement to have a fighting fund to start holding media to account for the endless stream of pro-feminist, male-bashing false propaganda.

  5. It would be good for the men’s movement to have a fighting fund

    I would happily donate to such a fund if it were created .
    Some lawyer with a set of balls could make a real name for himself if they were to pull it off ,It would be bigger than the Erin Brockovich story .

  7. if you go after the herald (which is owned by fairfax media) with lawyers. Expect to get the kind of treatment that Trump, Gabbie Toastie, Aaron Smith etc got. The media fights dirty. They have no morals, no conscience, they are completely psychotic. You might get death threats who knows what else. I am just letting you know what you are up against.

  8. #7 just a correction…..The New Zealand Herald is owned by New Zealand Media and Entertainment not Fairfax. All media have slipped in regards to ethics. Profit is #1 priority. Truth doesn’t always generate profit so it must be compromised accordingly.

  10. Some lawyer with a set of balls – I would suggest the lawyer who the Legal Worker’s Society of Fools consider discredited – Evgeny Orlov. I don’t think too highly of him. But I consider him head and shoulders and kneecaps above the rest. Especially when they start talking about how an independent bar protects NZ society from Government!
    The rest of the legal workers are really just a Mutual Mastication Society. They compliment each other like drooling fools and hope that the unsuspecting public will be sucked in.
    Customer protect thyself!

  11. Stewart was a pain for Federated Farmers and certainly appears to have a big chip.
    Not sure if it has anything to do with being a lesbian.

  12. @3 Yes I agree. The rugby union might’ve or should have acted differently.
    They have now employed a “womens refurberation” expert as a solution to fix the- culture.
    I was also surprised the didn’t demand an apology from the stripper scarlet for lying about players and name her publicly if she didnt.

    In Aaron smiths case. I read that the husband and wife that filmed the incedent were in disagreement about taking the tape to media.
    The husband approached media saying that his wife was insistent about Smith being publicly shamed. He apologised publicly through mainstream media to Smith and nzru and said the incedent had strained his marriage.

    As for the Men’s justice fund idea..
    How much do you reckon it might cost to pay a salary for a full time lawyer- with balls?
    I like the idea.
    Perhaps a small percentage of the fund could go towards promotion to attract even more funding for such a cause.

  14. This morning at five am, I was outside the window of the manukau bp.
    There was five of us dressed in tennisball and trafficlight, at the outside window- nightsafe .
    I had ordered my double shot but couldn’t find my card that id just had – secconds ago, probably looked like I was looking for smokes.

    But before my error i had acted with elightenment and purpose.

    I had taken the iniative to acsertain who wanted to pay for gas and who just wanted coffee to speedup the process and not keep anyone waiting unnesesarily, as it was rainy and windy as fuck.

    While I was returned to my vehicle- (where i found my card), a man approached me with the coffee of my request’ – the same one Id promised to return for.

    He was a bearded man, possibly Muslim – sort if indian looking bloke.

    He was wearing a cococola work sweatshirt or something p’raps like the early starters that stock drink fridges and fill store rooms but I dont know.

    He wasnt one of the five behind me dressed in tennis ball at traffic lights, there early this morning.

    It seemed he had decided that do a kind deed to an unknown stranger was his way of starting his day well.

    I plead that someone else might repay his kindness.

    Tomorrow is good if you do it.!

    Thank you!
