Vincent Eastwood (AKA MR. NEWS) was born in the ominous year of 1984 The same year set out in Orwell's masterpiece and the year of New Zealand's neo-liberal economic reforms. After working in the telecommunications industry he quit when he noticed that when he lied to the customer the companies profit margins went up. Unable to work or have an employer in the conventional sense Vincent went out with frustration at the mainstream media and began to make his own news by interviewing activists about real issues that truly affect New Zealand and the world. His idea is to get the activists who live and breathe the issues and are not bound by corporate or political parties to be the pundits, reporters and watch-dogs on the multi-faceted agendas of the global elite right here at home. He hopes to one day be part of an alternative media revolution that will replace the mainstream media with something that's relevant. An ardent patriot and activist Vinny has risked arrest many times to get the best footage from kiwi protests possible and is known for his flamboyant style of film making, both in the political sphere and music events becoming the life of the party in Auckland clubs. One element he wants to bring to the conspiracy movement is music in an effort to revitalize politics & getting the youth involved. Vinny believes it is the medias job to keep an eye on the powerful, to expose the corrupt, to let the population know what’s really going on. Without such responsibility there is nothing to stop the world coming to catastrophe at the hands of the few that control so much. His credence is: "I swear eternal vigilance against tyranny in all its forms, to replace it with justice, love and understanding, knowledge & strength of purpose."
