A claim an article in a conspiracy magazine sold in Whitcoulls could cause readers to run afoul of the law.
The book chain is stocking a copy of New Dawn, a magazine with anti-vax conspiracies and an article insinuating that the Christchurch Mosque attack was a false flag operation.
Disinformation Project Director Kate Hannah says that while some of the articles will be harmless, the one about the mosque attack details where to find the banned livestream of the attack.
She says a naive reader may choose to look it up, which would be illegal.
Whitcoulls has been approached for comment.
