The Disinformation News

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:57 am Thu 2nd June 2022

The Disinformation News, formerly known as “Stuffed News”.

STUFF News remains heavily invested in its traditional feminised format and as a consequence we see gendered disinformation from New Zealand’s largest news platform where we don’t discuss female failure.

We’ve grown used to our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern leading the way in this respect with the rejection of accountability by rejection of the premise of the question whenever asked about anything that doesn’t taste as sweet as wild honey.

This irregular pattern of behavior has gained significant public disapproval along with calls to fumigate The Beehive and repopulate it with a more functional and responsive species.

These circumstances were previously noted by STUFF’s senior journalist Andrea Vance saying that parliament had become an “artfully crafted mirage” and while that’s all very poetic the description doesn’t demand accountability.

The lack of attention around accountability has been encouraged by a lazy Opposition that appears to support the principles of different standards for women in parliamentary business.

Of course the flow-on effect is now well established and increasingly visible where other females expect to be able to do what they want without accountability too.

The most recent example at the highest level is our Foreign Minister and Local Body Minister, Ms Mahuta who was said recently, “To have too much on her plate.” as she faces allegations of conflict-of-interest corruption through favours to the whanau.

This combination of Her Magesty’s dysfunctional Opposition and media disinformation leave other incompetent females to carry blithely on boldly going where other women now want to go too.

It’s an infectious disease for which we haven’t yet developed a remedy.

There has been no interest in holding Jan Tineti to account for her other portfolios outside of Minister for Women, while Tineti has become another example of someone paid too much and of whom too little is expected in return.

Oddly enough an increasing number of men, some influential others simply with recognisable male deficiencies have become defensive of the female right to fail without criticism.

We certainly need more functional news outlets to raise matters of important public interest that the offending females would prefer went unnoticed for the sake of their personal comfort.

STUFF News in particular, having remained stubbornly selective about the increasing number of disclosures about female incompetence will not enjoy the heat.

And with questions of conspiracy to injure hanging over the current Press Gallery Chair, Maiki Sherman, the realisation that media females may also be in for a rude awakening may encourage more ethical journalism.


  1. The ‘bungling” along by the proud 50 percent women, busy little bees of the beehive, is becoming dangerous for our country and its’ very democracy.

    I believe Ms Williams studied around Women in Politics,, as the Police Minister she seems like a duck out of water or a busy little bee in it… at a time where even the Policing seems out of their depth she is not flying the airwaves.

    Meanwhile the Prime Minister is fluttering about in the US, showing off her rainbow feathers to the awestruck world while we back home sit dumbfounded by her audacity,

  2. The bungling. Over and over, whether it’s Williams with the police, Tineti, with the ongoing FENZ disaster or Megan Woods with the refinery and energy resources, there appears to be some common ground that there is some more important ulterior motive and women are more useful idiots in that respect.

    It gives the impression that the government hasn’t left itself so exposed, the media is less inclined to delve and report.

  5. There was an interesting report a week or two ago from ‘The Disinformation Project’, claiming to be an ‘independent research group’. They found an explosion of what they claimed was disinformation at the time of the recent occupation of parliament grounds. We heard an interview with one of their researchers and initially it seemed fair enough for them to call out extreme conspiracy theories about the Pfizer vaccine. However, the fellow then claimed that blogs critical of the racist intentions of ‘3 Waters’ and Health restructuring amounted to disinformation and it became clear that this Project was behaving as a propaganda machine for the Ardern government.

    The Project’s web site tells us this about its Director Kate Hannah:

    “Her research interests include gender, ‘race’, eugenics, colonization and white supremacism in historic and contemporary science and technology cultures and subcultures.”

    So its report was no surprise.

    It has been fascinating to hear mainstream media such as taxpayer funded Radio NZ disparage disinformation provided through internet blogs, YouTube etc and claiming that mainstream media are careful to check facts and provide reliable information. Actually, they have been bombarding us with feminist, Marxist disinformation for a very long time about such matters as domestic violence, masculinity, suicide and race matters. Numerous examples have been provided here on Menz Issues over the years.

  6. …my ‘disinformation’ source is Muriel Newman and company…. vowing to keep us honest…

    Comment by mama — Thu 2nd June 2022 @ 6:33 pm

  7. Her research interests, are interesting.
    We can make assumptions, about each topic.

    With gender, that means feminist theory.
    As no male theory, exists in education.

    With race, it’s inherently a biased perspective.
    And forces, you vs them arguments.
    A statistical thing, may advantage a race.
    But in turn, causes a disadvantage.
    Dependency, may cause disfunction.
    Disfunction, may demand more dependency.
    Race also implies, cultural differences.
    Race then is the indoctrination, of the child.
    It is made, to perceive race exists.
    Certainly the child, is only human.

    With eugenics, it’s inherent to evolution.
    I suspect, it’s also the race argument.
    Not arguments, about actually improving humans.
    Breeding the athlete, with the athlete.
    But from the elimination of race, argument.

    With colonisation, there is definitely problems.
    NZ has faced, three significant events.
    First pristine NZ, was colonised by Maori.
    Habitat and species loss, followed.
    Second was the arrival, of European people.
    Transforming the nation, to mimic Europe.
    Third was multiculturalism, and high immigration.
    Soon everyone in NZ, will be a minority.
    Pristine NZ, no longer exists.
    If ever you wanted an experiment, it’s us.
    From perception of bad, can we make it good.

    With white supremacy, all races have there own supremacy.
    Do the Russians not display it, and kill Ukrainians.
    Do Indians with religion or class, fight other Indians.
    Do Africans, not murder the other tribe.
    Do Chinese, not force assimilation on others.
    Did the English, murder the Scottish.
    Who then is exempt, from the prejudice of identity.

    I for one, can do nothing to change myself.
    I am inherently guilty, of others perspective.
    However, it is a taught perspective.
    Try then to stop the child, absorbing culture.
    Try then to stop racism, as it’s made by the subject itself.
    Try then to make every human, the same.

    Does she argue, to reinforce the culture of racism.
    Or actual redress, for things actually stolen.
    Ignorant to the identity, of the person involved.
    In the time frame of eugenics, NZ is a melting pot.
    In just millennia, Kiwi may be a new race of people.

  8. This is not a new thing. It has a name and was widely used in WW2 to justify murder of a single race. That name is Propaganda.

    A powerful, effective tool to get people to do what you want them too. For us, for men, it has been used to tell us things like.

    Women don’t lie about rape.
    Women are disadvantage.
    Women are paid less than men.
    Women never lie about domestic violence.
    She must be believed.

    It justifies laws like, men losing the right to live in their home. It justifies him loosing not just 50% but all he owns for many years. Or loosing 50% of what he paid for after 3 years or less, to pay a higher tax that most of it ends up in her pocket.

    If you fight it, you are called a misogynist pig.

    It allows governments to make legislation by first reasoning to the people.

    The media was referred to as the 4th estate. To hold the government and others to account. Now paid off with NZ$50 million of our money, they are just the mouthpiece for the government to explain things like,

    1. Why vaccinate people still catch Covid.
    2. Why people get blood clots. (notably, only the vaccinated people)

    @1 There is media accountability, it is not to the public. It is the government who now employs them.

    Abstract from Wiki. Wiki explains it better than I can.

    Propaganda is communication that is primarily used to influence or persuade an audience to further an agenda, which may not be objective and may be selectively presenting facts to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is being presented.[1] Propaganda can be found in news and journalism, government, advertising, entertainment, education, and activism[2] and is often associated with material which is prepared by governments as part of war efforts, political campaigns, health campaigns, revolutionaries, big businesses, ultra-religious organizations, the media, and certain individuals such as soapboxers.

  9. You may be familiar with Glen Greenwald, a fairly well known independent journalist who generally works in the Americas.

    Quoting Greewald on the same issue of female corruption in journalism:

    How many times does the same NYT/WPost reporter have to be caught lying before her frightened colleagues cease defending her or remain silent?

    Again, media employees love lamenting that they lost the trust of the public, but *never* look in the mirror to ask why this happened.

    Both people mentioned in the same paragraph allege that Taylor Lorenz lied about ever attempting to contact them for comment.

    We shouldn’t think the female incompetence in journalism comes in exactly the same form in NZ – ie fictional quotes, but there’s no shortage of manipulation when it comes to in accurate reporting of biased presentation.

    Comment by Evan Myers — Sat 4th June 2022 @ 7:09 am

  10. … inaccurate reporting or biased presentation.

    Like getting a degree in telling the truth, and lying at the same time.

  12. This article, is a example.

    So in summary, she starts throwing things at him.
    He grabs her to stop her, explaining scratching on her chest.
    But she grabs a knife, stabbing him in the back.

    Luckily his shoulder blade, saved his life.
    So how is it not, attempting murder.

    It does sound like, most domestic violence.
    But ask what is missing, from the story.
    It doesn’t argue, about power and control.
    Was it finances or jealousy, was it sex or expectation.
    If she didn’t stab him, was he then inherently guilty.
    Was he then the aggressor, and her violence reactive.
    Certainly the story, shows his violence was reactive.

    Was his injury, the only thing that saved him.
    From arrest, or the Police Safety Order.

    Would you then question strongly, if this was done by a male.
    What the hell has happened, for the offender to get the kids.
    Certainly no male offender, would be so lucky.

    Would we get the same perspective, if the offender was male.
    Would the journalist even question, or even imply female guilt.
    Yet told the truth, in the article.

  13. I used to own guns, but are not permitted anymore.
    I’m in a group, deemed unsafe.
    Apparently the gun, is not the problem.
    As for the US, they even have handguns.
    And they think, that’s not crazy.

    To be realistic, it’s very easy to make a gun.
    So there is no going back, to them not existing.
    But one argument, ruins any pro gun argument.

    If nobody, had the concept of a gun.
    And today, a person invented the handgun.
    Tomorrow would you legalise it, for safety reasons.
    Imagine the safety briefings, and extra guarding.

    That’s the excuse, of the the pro gun argument.
    At least it is, in the very unsafe US.
    I’m thankful, NZ is more sensible with guns.
    Imagine NZ gangs, and a handgun culture.

    So the US gun lobby, uses disinformation.
    An argument of needing guns, to be safe from guns.
    Or it’s a God given right, when God didn’t even invent them.
    I doubt the outdated 2nd amendment, was thinking of school shootings.

  14. Here is the Herald article on the ‘Disinformation Project’. We wouldn’t be surprised if they were paid by the Ardern government in some way to produce the disinformation in its own report, though far be it from us to make defamatory claims.

    Comment by Ministry of Men's Affairs — Thu 9th June 2022 @ 4:56 pm

  15. There is no doubt, Stuff hates Donald Trump.

    With endless articles, predicting his doom.
    The moment he went down the stairs, they hated him.
    They hated him, for his red blooded sex life.
    The hated him, for how he got rich.
    They even made up stories, of sex tapes.
    And played along, with fantasy about Russia.
    Did you not notice, the endless delay and timing.
    Perfect timing, to attack before the 2016 election.
    Perfect timing, to still be accused at the midterms.
    Even the Ukraine impeachment, was well timed for 2020.

    Not a word in the article, of being timed for the midterms.
    Can they not see, by now we would have the smoking gun.
    The video or recording, giving us 100% as to guilt.
    Can the media not play, the speech he gave the crowd.
    Is that not, the most important evidence.

    If there’s no problem with voting, why change things.
    Wasn’t all the problems, made from using new voting methods.
    Are they not, still changing rules and things.

    Maybe pretending to stop, sending home observers.
    Then rushing to count, box’s of votes.
    Will be avoided, in the next election.

    I do think it was a mistake, to not admit defeat to Biden.
    The author cry’s wolf again, blindly supporting the left.
    But my guess is, the public has had enough of stories.

    “Donald Trump oversaw and coordinated a sophisticated seven-part plan”

    Sorry, but I had to laugh when I read it.
    It has to be, disinformation.

    Comment by DJ Ward — Sat 11th June 2022 @ 1:06 pm

  16. @15. The funny thing is how the mainstream media just can’t stop talking about him and giving him effectively free publicity. Despite the fact he lost, Biden and the democrats did have a lot of popularity to oust him. Nonetheless, Trump will be back and the republicans will gain some ground ready for the next election what ever the outcome is.

    Comment by s — Sun 12th June 2022 @ 1:15 am

  17. They assume, Trump will run for election.
    What if he did, but didn’t at the same time.

    The right, has a woman run for President.
    With a vice President, as Trump.
    The left, would lose there minds.
    Imagine Putin, with Trump sent to have a conversation.
    The lefts attempts, vs Trump told to go fix something.
    A spare person, skilled at the pulpit.

    #16 I agree with your observation, of talking about him.
    I think it’s a love to hate thing, and he’s irresistible.

    Comment by DJ Ward — Sun 12th June 2022 @ 10:17 am

  18. @6 Here is the link Mama refers to.

    Dr Muriel Newman, a former MP for the Act party.

    You really need to read her latest and post in full.

    A quote from her blog….

    The reality for New Zealand is that through ignoring ‘official advice’ and making her disastrous “Captain’s Calls”, Jacinda Ardern is creating an Orwellian society where the ‘single source of truth’ has become the source of ‘untruth’, and a ‘Disinformation’ agency is likely to become a source of ‘misinformation’. As if that’s not bad enough, she then has the gall to prance on the world stage presenting an illusory façade of virtue.

  19. It seems government, is changing ministers.
    They must suspect, the police will need help.
    Why put the go to guy, in that job.
    Maybe the present minister, wasn’t going to cope.

    Today I thought a lot, about the judiciary.
    Because they defend the crown, just like the police defend.
    And both know, I have already accused them publicly.
    So as long as I avoid, non consensual conception or rape.
    Then they know I can prove those crimes, and the new ones.
    But can’t address the first crime, because there guilty.
    The same is the case, with the new crimes.

    Do they think when they defend, that inevitably exposes them.
    Soon the new ministers, may themselves get tested.
    Not by me, but by the people I’m being annoying to.
    They may not like, a person proving the reader is a criminal.

    And legally, keep everyone updated on there acts in defence.
    I have bought a book, to detail all the events as there is many.
    And will add my notes, and thinking to my acts.
    My distance limit approaches, and I am well practiced.
    I have learnt by the stress of past acts, I can try anything.

  20. Cabinet reshuffle,, all her majesty does is for acting appropriatley in the eyes of her subjects.

    Comment by mama — Mon 13th June 2022 @ 6:09 pm

  21. @20
    The latest disinformation is,

    Mallard resigned. – When the rest of the world believes he was fired for turning a hose on the peaceful protesters and their children camped out at parliament. Calling an employee a sex offender then having to pay him out $300,000, unlawfully trespassing Winston Peters, Matt King and others, playing loud music to the protesters and for bullying and harassment.

    The village idiot title comes to mind.

    Comment by Lukenz — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 10:05 am

  22. Hear hear Luke, Mallards’ actions being treated as NORMAL behaviour by his piers drags his piers into the absurd,, this beehive bunch will go down in history for many things, perhaps the most ignorant government but ignorance is indeed a nice, innocent way to describe the ugliness involved in this Cabinet.

    Comment by mama — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 11:06 am

  23. We now have a substantial alternative media network with

    The Daily Examiner
    Kiwi Voice
    The Platform (miore recently which added an Auckland studio to its existing structure yesterday.)

    It is not easy to quantify the affect of a sub narrative as it exists at the moment but that has been responsible for major stories like Mahuta’s family connections, The Tokelau Covid Prisoners, FENZ and its current irrational environment along with long form interviews with protest leaders which of course relates directly to Mallard’s situation.

    The danger here is crediting these results entirely to political pressure which both National and ACT would revel in.

    It’s important to support and pay attention to these new media outlets.

    The Platform interviewed cartoonist Garrick Tremain recently and Kiwi Voice Mathew Hague (who took the mandate case to the High Court) on Sunday night.

    Attempts to censors and obstruct these new networks has so far failed but these are mostly men who have been cancelled in some way fighting back from a redevelopment of the media industry.

    The effects can also be seen in the number of journalists heading overseas as the msm sector is due for a substantial shack-up which has been realised by Kris Faafoi who quit the Broadcasting portfolios yesterday.

    Much of what Mallard was doing was hidden behind is excessive control of the Press Gallery.

    The public is starting to see the reality and this government is starting to pay a heavy price for what they’ve done.

    Comment by Evan Myers — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 11:26 am

  24. Evan above,,, I hope you are right in that our peoples are starting to see the lack of transparency for themselves, I think ‘this government’ campaigned on it. (transparency)
    The worst of it is that it has not been that opaque,, it has been more like blinding, and blindsided.

    Comment by mama — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 12:14 pm

  25. …adding to that though is the danger in thinking a right government would change things that are important to the virtues of our humanity,, what is happening to us in westernised countries and beyond has a life of its own and if people dont push back we will be living in a quagmire of confusion and despair.

    Comment by mama — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 12:18 pm

  26. Post war May 1920, The US incumbent President Warren Harding proclaimed that America needed “not nostrums, but normalcy”.
    In a similar disruption to our own, World War I and the Spanish flu had up-ended US life, and Harding argued the solution was to seek normalcy by restoring life to how it was before the war.

    This is what we’re fighting on one front but for us we have the added disruption of co-governance as well as media redevelopment.

    Comment by Evan Myers — Tue 14th June 2022 @ 4:30 pm

  27. This is what too many people don’t understand about the covid situation and they go into great rants about NAZI propaganda.

    The 1930s nazi learned from what George Creel had done in the US in the first world War and expanded on that in a similar manner to the Russian Communists.

    It’s very much a case of examine the rhythm of history and not looking for the repeat.
