A medical professional posted on Twitter that she can and will withhold care from patients based on her perception of the patient’s sex, race and political beliefs. By Monday, her hospital bio page displayed “Page not found”. Far too many engage in inappropriate emotional outbursts on social media that have led to severe consequences, including being fired from a job.
Yet another Covid superspreader forecast, this time made after the event, turns out to be full of hot air. All of them have been wrong but the media never, ever goes back and looks at all the failed forecasts. The result is no one trusts the media or public health anymore.
This news report is inconsistent, contradictory and incoherent. It claims 9 in 10 Florida resident are at “high” risk for Covid – in a state where up 80% are estimated to have had Covid, and hence, acquired immunity, and 70% have been fully vaccinated. This is news report is complete nonsense. And they wonder why people don’t believe anyone anymore?

The White House issues a bizarre official tweet saying that when Biden took office, January 20, 2021, “no vaccine was available”. This is bizarre on multiple levels. Unfortunately, it leads many of us to conclude that all political speech is disinformation, all the time.
Zuckerburg’s ownership of Facebook and Instagram, billionaire Jack Dorsey’s prior control of Twitter, and Jeff Bezos’ ownership of The Washington Post are all okay – but Musk buying Twitter to open it up for free speech is bad. These arguments against Musk buying Twitter are not making a lot of sense.
Russian officials denounce the West while simultaneously sending their kids to universities and jet set lifestyles in Europe and the U.S. They pretend to believe their own propaganda that the West is evil.
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.
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.
RT America is shutting down. RT was a Russian government funded television propaganda operation. I feel uncomfortable that I had occasionally watched their programming years ago. I have also unfollowed all Russia-based social media content creators – how can I know they were not part of an elaborate propaganda campaign to encourage us to view the violent Putin regime in a positive light?
