It was with great frustration and disappointment that the opportunity for anyone in the general public who came to listen to a talk held at Lennox Head Community Centre on Esoteric Medicine, presented last night (12th October 2012) by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, was unable to hear the presentation, which was ambushed by a ‘tabloid journalism’ TV crew. In true tabloid journalism style, an “expert” (David Millikan) with a background in media was hired by an Australian television channel to get the “money” shot and filmed by several ‘sleepers’ in the audience. What saddens me the most, is that apart from another example of the corruption in the media (for this style of journalism is only about ratings through Jerry Springer tactics and sensationalism), is that the open door policy and the public’s right to access information regarding true wellbeing and health is hijacked.
I did not pay five dollars to be ranted at by David Millikan and his theories of how I was a cult member when he does not know me. But I am wise enough to know that he was not interested in who I was or even concerned if I was a part of a cult, he was there to make money off me. What does outrage me is that David Millikan was hired to supposedly infiltrate the meeting by presenting as a researcher trying to understand Universal Medicine’s teachings and purpose. He intentionally misled Serge Benhayon; claiming that his uninvited appearance was to connect with and listen to those attending the presentation. Serge agreed to David taking the stage with this understanding and with the request only that he be brief and polite with the students. His ‘talk’ was in no way a dialogue or contained any opportunity to listen to anyone’s reply, merely a forum to rant and bully adults and children in the audience as he had the microphone and the cameras following him.
