It’s time for the annual “Happiest Country in the World” selection, which as always, is a Scandanavian country, since they use metrics that intentionally result in Scandanavian countries ranking high. The metrics, oddly enough, have nothing to do with anyone’s happiness! And every year, the media morons publish this ranking as if it is a meanginful news report. It’s not, the rankings are bogus. Read why.
Russia censors more content, now blocking Google News access within Russia.
Facebook gives a bizarre “fact check”.
Facebook censors a Moderna Senior Scientist’s tweet which links to a pre-print of paper written a PhD virologist. What? Twitter simply censors at random now.
The “boxes” are called Flight Data Recorders and they are bright orange, not black. But leave it to the media to create an imaginary term out of thin air to describe the data recorders: One of the two black boxes containing data from Monday’s plane crash has been found, Chinese state media said Wednesday. Source: China Eastern Airlines Boeing crash: Black box found Do you wonder how much other stuff the media just makes up on the spot?

“Russia state regulator says YouTube activities are ‘terrorist in nature’ and threaten lives of Russian citizens.”
Dr. Fauci has barely appeared in the media for the past 4 weeks, and possibly not at all in the past 2-3 weeks. After 15 days to flatten the curve turned into 2+ years, he may have exceeded his “Best if used by” date as many politicians want to bury the pandemic fast as they can (it is a Congressional election year).
A Russian Telegram channel purporting to “fact check” reports about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is itself a fake operation used to spread misleading propaganda messaging. Unfortunately, many “fact check” operations, including from professional Western media, are propaganda messaging in a new form. Read this for some background on that.
Stanford’s Professor Michael McFaul is a fool. He said on MSNBC that Hitler never targeted ethnic Germans. McFaul is a fool, an idiot, and makes us wonder if his biography is a fraud. He is a professor of International Studies at Stanford, Director of their International Studies Institute, and was a White House policy advisor for five years on Eurasian affairs. He also is why “expert” has become synonymous with idiot.
