Experts have warned Aucklanders to be cautious of a new magazine campaigning against Covid vaccinations that has been letterbox-dropped in Auckland, NZ Herald reports. The Real News magazine has recently shown up in Mt Eden letterboxes, with its first edition featuring a special story called, “The Truth About the Covid-19 Pandemic & Vaccines That We’re Not Being Told.” The 48-page magazine also contained ideas widely considered as conspiracy theories. Dr Andrew Chen – a researcher at University of Auckland-based Koi Tū: The Centre for Informed Futures – said what appears different about this pamphlet’s “misinformation” is not its content but its presentation and financing.
