Meet Newzulu’s latest brand advocate… Pauline Hanson

Are you fed up with getting your news from trained journalists? If so, then Pauline Hanson has the app for you.

Dr Mumbo quite enjoyed this Facebook video from the former Dancing With The Stars contestant (and Queensland Senator-elect) who took aim at the media for what she claims is “sensationalism” – the wilful misrepresentation of her political views:

“It’s no wonder that your newspaper sales and ratings are going down ´cause no one wants to know what you have to say because you can’t tell the truth,” claims Hanson, who made it through seven weeks of Celebrity Apprentice.

Hanson’s views include these ones about indigenous Australians, as well as more recent claims that our suburbs will be “swamped by Asians”.

She then goes on to give a somewhat unexpected endorsement of citizen journalism app Newzulu.

“If the media can’t be truthful then, look, there is this new app Newzulu,” she says, holding up her mobile phone. “It might be a way to go. Then we won’t need the media at all. You guys will be out of a job.”

Dr Mumbo presumes Newzulu, which is currently recruiting for a CEO, will be thrilled with this new endorsement. Perhaps they could put a few dollars behind the post and get it trending on social media.
