A few years ago The New Yorker wrote a piece alleging that I lied to my interview subjects in Farmlands. I sent them all the proof that this claim was false, they apologized and said they would work to fix this. 1/4
Finally a month later they published a “letter to the editor” on a random page that isn’t shared anywhere, lumped in with a bunch of other messages & had severely gutted what I wrote. It wasn’t linked on their original piece, and no corrections to their original piece were made.
The piece is still up today and it still alleges I lied to my subjects in Farmlands. They know for a fact this is untrue, they have acknowledged that to me and apologized. It does not matter.

I just want people to understand, even if you are in the right. Even if you have all the proof in the world. Even if you have the "receipts" and you’re dealing with a mainstream outlet. It’s unlikely you will get any justice. They know they can get away with it.
People wonder why we use the word "Fake News" they wonder why there's a severe distrust of the media?

It has nothing to do with them being Trump supporters or right wing. It has nothing to do with politics.

It's just a fact. The media are lying scumbags and everyone knows it.

It appears that last night personal information about my Australian visa was leaked from the Department of Home Affairs to a radical left-wing blog. Dates, purposes, notes from officials and perhaps more I have not seen yet.
The government have a duty under the privacy act to ensure everyone's documentations are handled with care. Yet it appears this breach occurred, possibly because of a radical working within the government with access to information or due to another weakness in security.
Such leaks put my family and my child in danger. It wasn’t even leaked to a mainstream outlet, it was leaked to an extremist outlet with an editor who refers to himself proudly as a “communist” and “ASIO target”. Image

With all the discussion around migrants crossing the English Channel I figured it would be good to remind everyone of why they’re doing that.

Traffickers and progressives promised illegal migrants a paradise in Europe. They never found it. They keep searching in every country.
It doesn’t exist. It doesn’t even exist for Europeans. Now you have migrants stuck with no hopes in a continent culturally At odds with their own. With no border restrictions they - and Europeans - are now stuck with the very extremists and criminals many attempted to flee from.
It’s a tragedy for both the European people and many migrants themselves. With only traffickers, terrorists and violent criminals winning in the end.

All of this is covered in my documentary #Borderless
