The ABC Employed Fake Health Experts to Inflict Fear – Senate Estimates 29.11.22
By Senator Gerard Rennick
Some misinformation is more equal than others.
Bill Bowtell was paraded around by the ABC as a health expert early in the pandemic. It turns out he was a former Keating staffer and who had no medical qualifications whatsoever. He was awarded an honorary title adjunct professor which gave him an air of expertise but in reality it meant nothing.
He was employed by the notorious Kirby Institute which has a reputation for make dire predictions about viruses. Another of their acolytes, Raina McIntyre made a fool of herself in 2009 when she predicted 20,000 deaths from swine flu.
When Norman Swan blamed Covid for the deaths of Kimberley Kitching and Shane Warne there was little uproar from the establishment media.
Why would there be. Covid has been blamed on sorts of deaths. Kitching and Warne didn’t even have Covid when they died.
Heck, even the TGA have admitted that the PCR tests can’t even distinguish between live and dead virus but it’s still the gold standard for testing Covid. A false positive doesn’t stop the authorities from assigning Covid as the cause of death.
You’d think the ABC would uphold editorial standards and do more than make Norman Swan apologize. But hey, this is our ABC, responsible for some of the worst Covid fear mongering.
Of course had the foot been on the other shoe, and someone suggest the vaccine was responsible for their deaths there would have been outrage from the media.
It’s just another example of how bureaucrats and the media are not held to account.
Here’s what others had to say:
Gerard, we need 30 more senators like you and then maybe we would get honest and transparent governance. Keep exposing the lies, double standards, agendas and biases…..
Thank you Senator Rennick for all your great work. Please keep at it. Keep trying to hold this corrupt grubberment to account. I pray for the day when all the truths come out, which they are, slowly but slowly.
Must be so frustrating dealing with these lying criminals. Keep up the good work Senator.
The “On notice” reply is a cop out for these corrupt institutions…
Senator you must get so sick of the condescending manner in which you are spoken to and the consistent attempts to shut you down in the Senate or committee sessions. Please don’t ever let that prevent you from doing what you do. We need true representatives of the people, questioning and probing to ensure ethical behaviours by those who enjoy government salaries and funding. Entitlement sets in very easily, distorting decision making, especially when not truly accountable.
Thank you, Keep up the great work!

Absolutely disgusting corruption that needs to be more than just taking something in notice in a committee meeting.
“Discipline starts with counselling and ends with termination” why then has Swan not been thereby terminated?
Thank you Senator for doing your job with integrity and courage. Australia needs you.
Why do these people who live off our taxes, never know any answers to the VAX questions. Didn’t even know what the first guys role was for giving information to the government.
Despite Sen. Rennick asking the questions many of us would like answered, many people simply take the questions ‘on notice’ and we don’t get to hear the answers. Many questions should be sent to witnesses prior to them appearing before committees so they can answer them on the day and eliminate the ‘on notice’ avoidance.
Senator Rennick, thank you for consistantly asking the questions that most of your colleagues will not and cutting through the BS, these people need to be held to account, we are on the way down a slippery slope that the western world seems to want to take us.
Thankyou Senator for your integrity and truthfulness, qualities that sure are in short supply in the corridors of power in this nation.
