The interview started out like many others on a breakfast TV show.
A bright sunny live cross. A groomed woman. Notes visible in her hands to read from. A few nerves.
But from about 25 seconds in, you realise this is no ordinary interview. This is about to become a trainwreck.
Yesterday Sunrise made the decision to interview a vaccination refuser for five prime-time minutes.
The hook for the yarn was the fact that this particular “Mum” organised a “chicken pox party” with the intention of infecting other willing children with the disease.
They gifted her valuable breakfast television minutes to explain why she would choose to hold a chicken pox party and to read her “facts” from her notes, which she later admitted she got online.
