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.
What actually happened: A retired colonel whose past job had him carrying government nuclear launch codes attempted suicide after getting drunk. A bit different than the headline implies considering current world events.
The story lead attempts to link his death from Covid to schools being open. In fact, schools were closed when he contracted Covid-19 rendering this juxtaposition of phrases as 100% pure propaganda messaging.
Reporter asserts all Covid deaths in the U.S. were preventable. My pointing out that Covid was not controlled anywhere in the world (having accurate data collection and reporting), and my pointing out that 27 other countries had worse outcomes than the U.S. is “denying that the deaths were preventable”. Therefore, you are cautioned that my inconvenient questions and observations are official disinformation, as determined by the Associated Press. Also, remember Betteridge’s Law – any headline that ends in a question mark means the story is bull shit.
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.
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.
Russian officials caught in yet another lie. Russia is not winning the propaganda battle. At all.
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?
Rolling Stone reports that former CNN president Zucker and his girlfriend, an EVP at CNN, were actively advising former NY Gov Andrew Cuomo on how to respond in public to Trump’s criticisms, and actively running a media propaganda campaign. Zucker’s resignation was attributed to a romantic conflict of interest that apparently everyone knew about for years – and is not the reason he’s gone. The reason he’s gone is CNN, it turned out, really was running a fake news operation. But for obvious reasons, they could not come right and say that.
CNN President admits to affair with former Gov. Andrew Cuomo public relations head. His network had been a long-time booster of the now disgraced former Governor.
