Q. How is your trust in government and the media?
As far as the Government goes, I have no trust in them whatsoever. And the problem is, the opposition hasn't been up to par either to challenge them on the mishandling of the Pandemic. As for the media, it depends who the media is and who they are bankrolled by. I have little faith in the media outlets funded by billionaires as they can direct the narrative, so the headlines they create, especially the right wing press demonising those of us living in poverty need to be taken with a pinch of salt. I do not buy newspapers anymore and source my information online from a variety of news outlets. I have had the opportunity of working with several journalists over the past few years as part of my campaigning role and there are still journalists out there that act with integrity and genuinely do care and I am happy to talk with them.
