“Nazi PR Disaster”: Seven Cops A Social Media Hiding For Interview With Neo-Nazi Leader

“Nazi PR Disaster”: Seven Cops A Social Media Hiding For Interview With Neo-Nazi Leader

Channel 7 News in Melbourne has been called out by members of the media industry, a former government minister, and the Aussie public for an interview with the leader of a far-right group.

According to Channel 7, reporter Jodi Lee was granted exclusive access to a secret meeting organised by right-wing activists in response to Melbourne’s African youth crime crisis.

Her TV package included an interview with Blair Cottrell, leader of the United Patriots Front, who has previously boasted about being a racist and a fan of Adolf Hitler.

Cottrell has also admitted to being jailed for a number of offences, including stalking, burglary and arson.

However, 7 News Melbourne failed to mention any of these shocking details in the report, which has been labelled “offensive” and a “Nazi PR disaster”, while Seven has been accused of promoting racism to boost ratings.
