Propaganda: “Person X” who opposes mask mandates tests positive for COVID-19 

Propaganda: “Person X” who opposes mask mandates tests positive for COVID-19 

The media has undertaken a national propaganda campaign on face masks: They only report when a person opposed to face masks tests positive. They NEVER report that most people testing positive were probably wearing face masks much of the time. This intentionally biases your perspective on the effectiveness of face masks.

The media may do this because they know that keeping readers and viewers emotionally inflamed is good for click bait and ad revenue.

We are being horribly manipulated by the media

We are being horribly manipulated by the media

The media is manipulating your thinking on covid-19 and relative risks by headlining daily body counts and new cases counts. In my state, the odds of being hurt in a car crash – today – are very similar to the odds of being diagnosed with Covid-19. The odds of being hospitalized due to a car crash are many times greater than being hospitalized for Covid-19. But which one do you fear and have daily panic attacks over? Probably not the car crashes. We are being manipulated by media and public health officials who are frequently acting like quacks.

BGR is a fake news site? “Stock up on these 5 things while you can – experts say more grocery hoarding is coming – BGR”

BGR is a fake news site? “Stock up on these 5 things while you can – experts say more grocery hoarding is coming – BGR”

BGR cites an old news story from mid July, about grocery item shortages in June and July (now being overcome), and throws in a made up assertion that “experts say” a huge second wave of Covid-19 is coming and you should stock up on essential items. This report uses FEAR to get you to take action, and click on their links to buy stuff – for which BGR appears to receive an affiliate marketing payment.

Amazing story of an intense, large scale propaganda campaign waged in the U.S. over health care

Amazing story of an intense, large scale propaganda campaign waged in the U.S. over health care

A detailed expose, by a participant, in a massive, highly coordinated propaganda campaign that trashed Canada’s health care system during discussions about the ACA. Ultimately, the ACA’s first draft was written by the former legal counsel of a health insurance company – who had been hired by Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) to do just that. In other words, the ACA was, to a large extent, written by the health insurance industry itself. Source: Health insurance whistleblower: I lied to Americans…

False: Full-time low income wage earners cannot afford a 2 bedroom rental anywhere in the U.S.

This claim comes out every year, from the same activist lobbying organization. They use misleading language and obfuscated definitions to imply a conclusion that is not true – a conclusion that the media laps up like good little puppies and uses to make false conclusions. This blog has covered this item twice previously. Nothing has changed.

This does not reflect well on the NY Times. Or  much of media.

This does not reflect well on the NY Times. Or  much of media.

An editor at the NY Times resigns and offers her thoughts on the de-evolution of the NY Times into a mob ruled by Tweets, divorced of facts, evidence or logic. Staff no longer report the news – instead, they think that “…truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.” Anyone having other thoughts is guilty of wrong think and must be banished for life.
