This is a formal complaint about your sunrise program that featured David Koch and Natalie Barr.
I came across your a recording of your sunrise program titled How to deal with unvaccinated family members this Christmas | 7NEWS dated 18/11/21.
In this program the presenters ask the following questions:
How to handle unvaccinated relatives?
Whether you spend time with them or sit next to them at Christmas dinner?
And then tips and tricks about how to deal with the elephant in the room and vaccination status of your relatives.
Firstly the fact that you actually aired that program is disgraceful. It is both discriminative and goes against privacy laws.
Let's remove the word covid and replace it with AIDS or HIV for example. Now tell me, do you still think it appropriate to segregate people because of their vaccinations status?
In health care privacy is of great paramount as it should be. Your advice is terrible, it's the worst advice possible. You should be ashamed of yourselves for even thinking about this type of content. And it does not reflect well I must say. In fact, it's not Journalism at all, it's fear mongering and really unintelligent. But I guess that says more about the type of people that watch your program actually.
Leave the public alone and stop lying and stop trying to provide a negative influence - This is clearly designed to further segregate by use of coercion and fear.
Do you have any idea of the impact this has on people's lives?
Your program further discriminates against people that have made a choice to not participate in a clinical trial with a drug that is only under provisional approval.
You have no right to make a program of this nature. Clearly you have no idea of the law and your advice is disgusting and wrong.
As a health care professional of nearly 20 years, your decision to air that program will I hope come back to bite you.
Whoever is responsible for this program should be immediately sacked and reported to the privacy commission.
Clearly you are out of touch with the general public. Who is responsible for airing this program?
I look forward to your reply
