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.
NBC publishes a news report on Covid with a glaring simple math and logic problem. Embarrassing.
California proposes to ban doctors from saying anything about Covid that is not part of the current “scientific consensus”. What could possibly go wrong? Everything.
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).
“Experts” made lots of stupid claims throughout the pandemic. People began to notice and the result is a loss of confidence in science, generally.
In the 1950s and 1960s, government technocrats held propaganda campaigns to convince us that to be safe in a nuclear attack, we just needed to “duck and cover” under our desks. Every elementary school student practiced this in monthly drills. But it was utterly useless. Its purpose was to pretend that we had control over something for which we actually had no control. It is similar to what just transpired during the pandemic – we were mandated to engage in actions that were utterly useless.
The Oregonian’s “Hospitalized kids at record high” headline was false, and is ripped by a letter to the editor.
Always twist a good news event into a bad news event. There is only bad news, never hope.
The UK government is accused of deliberately using scare tactics to force the population into compliance with its public health Orders and mandates (which they elite themselves ignore). Fear is one of the most powerful of propaganda motivators and has long been a tool of tyrants.
One of the largest papers in Denmark says they failed their readers by only publishing official government statements about Covid, without due skepticism and questioning.
