Berenson has been stupidly banned from Twitter a week. Meanwhile this guy just keeps plugging along slinging panic-inducing BS day after day. Side note: check out that graph. Check out the COV2 “boxes”. Copped from the NYT. 🙄. This is from the CDC, folks.

I think its good vaccinated transmit it, that means the unvaccinated get it that much faster.
Herd immunity and survival of the fittest.
Win win...

Im not a virologist but Im pretty sure viruses don't have brains. They don't know that they're not supposed to mutate to be both more transmissible and more deadly. Its all random, right?

And now they can merrily mutate away by the trillions ^ trillions without killing their hosts (the vaccinated) . You can figure out the rest that could happen from there....

Thanks for sharing. Interesting article. I think the ammo shortage is coming to an end as stores and e-commerce outlets are starting to have stock to sell and prices are about 60% of the high point (yet about +40% to +50% higher from 2 years ago) from what I've seen.

Its not at all clear why the children are presenting to the hospital, incidentally testing + for Covid-19. The odd language used in the CNN article makes it sound like the children probably presented for other problems.

It can't be that bad because CNN is still devoting more time to the Simone Biles Olympic dropout story at day 3 or 4. Anyway, Pam Brown will give us the true gritty on any Covid problems this evening..... wait, is she on vacation?

When Tiger Woods ran off the road, probably hopped up on various pharma products, ABC Nightly News literally devoted their entire newscast to it. One would have thought it was a JFK in Dallas level event.

Similarly, were all that many people outside of these newsrooms and the Biles family interested or invested in whether Biles competed in Tokyo? The level of coverage seems bizarre. There’s a whole world out there…just saying.

You are talking about it right now (in your post). Why aren't you talking about the non-eventful city council meeting in your home town? Why? Because it's amazingly boring. TV gets money from advertising. They put things on that attract viewers. It's not really that complicated. And it's not a conspiracy.

WHO. Interesting edits.

I've been trying to understand this growing disconnect from the old well-known science of herd immunity. To me, the only logical conclusions for authorities to ignore past infection is that 1) the PCR tests are bullshit and are simply not a good solid indicator of past infection (the most likely reason), or 2) some other nefarious reason for pushing vaccines (profit? political talking points? ??). All this continuous gaslighting is tiresome.

I agree “real news” won’t necessarily bring eyeballs. I disagree with the notion sentiment and narrative isn’t created in newsrooms.

There are lab studies showing reduced antibody titer levels versus eg the Delta variant. The significance of that in reduction of severe disease isn’t known. It’s completely plausible prior infected will have robust memory B and T cell immunity ie they may get infected or sick but probably won’t die. Same as the vaccinated…When pressed experts will admit they don’t know for sure, precautionary principal etc

If that's true (that they don't really know) I wish they'd come out and say it instead of covering it up and trying to massage the message. Covering it up with no explanation for the inconsistent recommendations just adds mistrust and makes everything worse. We're not all as dumb as they think.

Absolutely. You have actual real life journalists sitting in those meetings constantly advocating for "real" news. Then you have the "analytics" team using algorithms developed to maximize advertising dollars.

The issue I think most here have is that the news that is delivered is almost exactly what we ask for. "We" being enough people to generate enough advertising dollars to pay the employees and drive the stock price up.

Ive got a normal number of bullets like fits in a shoe box, buying no more. Ive been stocking up on cat food, priority one.
If you run out of food do you eat the cat first or the cat food?
