Utterly fake news on Covid situation in Oregon

Utterly fake news on Covid situation in Oregon

The media has done a spectacular job of fake news reporting on Covid-19. The news does not understand that Covid-19 daily body counts have nothing to do with the number of people who died in the past 24 hours. Instead, they report on the number of death reports received in the past 24 hours – the actual deaths occurred days, weeks even months earlier. Thus, the daily body count is a measure of data collection inefficiency – and has little to do with the disease itself. Today, this resulted in KOIN-TV running a completely fake news story about the post holiday surge.

38 of the 54 deaths reported yesterday were diagnosed BEFORE Christmas. Up through the 3rd week of December, the majority of deaths reported were diagnosed or occurred before the Thanksgiving weekend. The peak day of deaths in the state was Dec 9th, and the 2nd highest day was Nov 25th. But the media morons are too lazy to look at the actual data – instead, they just reprint the press releases without even bothering to think.

“Deplatforming” Parler

“Deplatforming” Parler

The controversy over hostile social media content advocating violence, hate, and lies on social media – and the deplatforming of individuals and entire services (e.g. Parler).

Was Parler deplatformed for “conservative” ideas or for users advocating violence?

Is there an adult at the Wall Street Journal? Runs bizarre opinion column saying Dr. Jill Biden is a fake doctor

Is there an adult at the Wall Street Journal? Runs bizarre opinion column saying Dr. Jill Biden is a fake doctor

Wall Street Journals runs an utterly bizarre opinion column by some low life who asserts that Dr. Jill Biden should be permitted to use her Doctor title (she has an earned doctorate) because she is not a medical doctor. The author even goes so far as to suggest she is a “fake doctor”. That this column even ran reveals the rot that now inhabits the WSJ’s editorial board – and that news is far bigger news than this idiotic opinion column.
