WBAI Celebrity Nullifies AIDS!


Move over, Jonas Salk... the new terminator is here... a humble soul whose soft, silky voice has brought solace and multicolored stuff to WBAI sufferers since the bygone days of the real Pacifica.... Ta-Dah!

ADDENDUM; December 17, 2015
Null repeats the claim in one of his WBAI infomercials where the Yes Man, a role previously played by Michael Haskins, has been taken over by Reggie Johnson. Here Null demonstrates his innate propensity for exaggeration beyond plausibility.

He infers that systematic snubs by the media and medical profession offer proof of his research posing a threat to "big pharma" and points out that only one journalist, Tony Brown, was not afraid to give him national exposure. He claims to have made many appearances on Tony Brown's Journal in connection with his AIDS research, which he did when Arthur Ashe and Magic Johnson were the most prominent HIV positive blacks.



I found the Null/Brown connect rather interesting, because Mr. Brown was a bit of a racist when he lived two floors above me. During the Seventies, when Black Pride/Awareness was waved about like a very PC banner, Tony would not admit white people to his annual New Year's Eve party. This also offended some of his black guests, including Walt Frazier, who soon found their way to my concurrent celebration. During that time, Tony never spoke to me or any other white tenant on the elevator if another black person was present—Frankly, I had expected a more open mind, but Null puts up with the same sort of racism at WBAI. Something else they have in common is PPP (paranoia pushing for profit). Remember the "millennium bug"? It was better known as Y2K, the perfect doomsday scam.

Whenever Gary Null pitches his survival kit, I think of the crudely Xeroxed flyer Tony distributed in 1999. I found one under my door and thought it was a joke when I read the verbose prediction of a New York without electricity, transportation, and law enforcement. In Tony Brown's alarming scenario, bands of starving citizens roamed the streets in search of food and people would die, along with everything else, he warned. I don't know how many kits he sold, but it was pathetic and Null brings it back to my mind.

Gary Null retains enough actual facts to give his tales some credibility, but they do get rather tall at times,  as you will hear in this unedited excerpt from the aforementioned WBAI infomercial.

  1. I was stunned when I heard that brazen claim. My mouth stopped chewing my sandwich of its own volition. I just turned and looked at my radio wondering if this time he would be called on the carpet for a claim.

    If my ex, who worked in the AIDS vaccine research field, and I were on speaking terms, I would have asked her to put me in immediate contact with the people she knew. She was in contact with the top researchers, teams, etc.

    I'm still pondering who I could contact over this announcement. He was lashing out at Act Up just moments before. Maybe I should contact them? I'd love to see Null get some bad publicity, at least.

    1. Yeah, the dude's got a lot of nerve! He lies so much that I guess he might as well cross the line big time. You're right, a cure for AIDS needs to be publicized. Act Up made a tremendous difference when it sharpened the focus on AIDS. NI'll Can only Washington that he ever had such an impact.

    2. @SDL: You could contact the New York State Department of Health Fraud Division and send them an audio cassette of the broadcast from the archives where he said that he has cured AIDS repeatedly using natural methods and these patients test HIV negative. The previous health commissioner despised Gary Null but said in an interview that he hasn't stepped over the line to prosecute him.

    3. Interesting indeed. Add to that, Null is curing AIDS again at 4:21PM.

  2. There are several things wrong:

    1- cure AIDS
    2- hypothetically that if a person were cured of AIDS that they would test serologically negative: that is untrue for syphilis and TB
    3- I saw the tony Brown's Journal program way back and he had only 1 patient, a young Hispanic man, whom he was treating and there was no talk of a cure or serologically testing negative.

    Big f.....g liar

  4. I have met Tony Brown - met him in a health food store some years ago - seems like a nice guy. I believed he lived in the Park West Village on the UWS in NYC.

    1. He was not all bad, just flawed, and he lived on Central Park West, a few blocks north of Park West Village. I still live in that building. His apartment, a duplex is now owned by a hedge fund guy who managed to take over a part of the roof, giving his apartment 3 levels. Tony's apartment, said a doorman, was filled with newspapers. When he left, he told me that he was moving to Washington, D.C.

    2. Of course he's not all bad. He's a Republican.

    3. There was a time when one could find a decent Republican more readily than now.
