Marcus Lush has made it clear that his show is no place for misinformation and conspiracy theories.

While discussing the second New Zealander who has been diagnosed with coronavirus, caller Rangi-Marie's anger over coronavirus - which she believed was a "scam" - was quickly shut down by Marcus Lush. 

He told her that he would not be "the portal for misinformation" in a time when we need an unified voice. 

"This is a time where we have to be responsible with the information we put forward." 

As she continued to insist that everything was a scam, Marcus asked the woman if she would promise never to call again, as he found her "unsettling".
