The COVID madness has created a most unusual dynamic for the residents down-under and the painfully monitored Australian media who have to be careful not to run afoul of the government COVID compliance watchers.
Once a nation creates an alternate reality of itself, in this case a totalitarian reality based on government needing to create an irrational illusion of fear that becomes part of the accepted national identity, how can a media outlet call attention to the outcomes without finding themselves in front of the governmental board of inquisition? That is the current challenge for media in Australia trying to report on their reality and yet avoid the ire from the national board of COVID compliance who have successfully brainwashed the audience.
One Australian media personality, Sky News host Rita Panahi, seems to have found a way. Ms Panahi continues to highlight broadcasts from around the world and articles in publications such as The Atlantic and The Times of London. The articles are commenting on the freedoms Australians had lost throughout the pandemic. Rita Panahi avoids the COVID Compliance censors by reporting on how the world is viewing Australian news. It is weird, and yet it is a perfect example of how bizarre the world has become over COVID. WATCH:
“Publications around the world, which previously did not pay much attention to Australia, are wondering what sort of a dystopian nightmare we have turned into,” Panahi says. Later following with “we are not like the rest of the world. Australia and New Zealand stand alone in enforcing some of the most draconian restrictions on what are supposed to be free people.” Which is precisely the point.
I commend the strategy of Sky News and Rita Panahi for reporting behind enemy lines, to allies within her own nation, in such as manner as the enemy controlling the broadcast signal cannot remove her voice.
