Winston Peters back down on his allegation that Harry Tam travelled with a Covid positive sex worker is embarrassing for him and asks hard questions of why TV3 allowed this falsehood to be broadcast in the first place!
Isn’t it funny how the mainstream media in NZ scream about Covid disinformation and argue they are the honest brokers and then they spread Covid disinformation from Winston?
Winston had the audacity to claim ‘words matter’ and ‘this is no laughing matter’ as Ryan Bridge grilled Winston on The AM Show by asking if Winston was claiming Harry had worn a disguise to travel.
Remember, Winston not only alleged Harry Tam had journeyed with the COVID positive sex worker but that the Government knew and were attempting to cover it up!
This is Gerry Brownlee level conspiracy bullshit now and it’s being used to reap political cheap shots during a national emergency.
Shame on Winston, shame on Newshub!
