I picture a few wan techies gathered around a fact-checking AI robot that repeats, “Must censor…must censor…must censor…”

FOX News, “Silicon Valley scrambles to stop coronavirus misinformation,” (Jan 27, 2020):

“The coronavirus’s rapid spread worldwide is forcing Big Tech to confront the equally viral proliferation of misinformation — in the form [of] outright falsehoods and half-truths about the outbreak.”

“Facebook, Google and Twitter have all struggled in different ways to contain medical misinformation, in particular around vaccines, in recent years. The Silicon Valley mainstays face a potentially much bigger challenge as coronavirus spreads across the world, having already infected 2,800 people in China and killed at least 82.”

The FOX article mentions two pieces of alleged misinformation: the US government secretly patented the coronavirus, and oregano oil can defeat the virus.

In order to help these social media giants, in their effort to spread only truth and eliminate lies, I suggest a test run. They should revisit another epidemic: 2009 Swine Flu—in order to correct the record. At that time, conspirators prevented accurate information from reaching the public. Instead, lunatic ideas about the epidemic were allowed to stand. A precedent was firmly established for future reporting about “outbreaks.”

The conspirators had somehow infiltrated a news organization at high levels, and they began floating lie after lie. This was a monstrously egregious situation. The public was unaware.

I have uncovered a solidly credible witness who observed this seedy operation. She was an employee of the news organization. In fact, she was a star investigative reporter for CBS News. Her words carry weight.

Her name is Sharyl Attkisson. I interviewed her. Facebook, Google, take notice, and swiftly elevate her words to the top of your news feeds and rankings.

Q: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, [secretly] stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of its impact. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

A: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story [written by Attkisson and published on the CBS News site] from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it and, in the end, no [CBS News television] broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype. It was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that may not have been necessary.

Q: You’ve revealed serious problems caused by vaccines. Have you run into opposition as a result of covering these stories?

A: This is a long discussion but yes, it is one of the most well funded, well orchestrated efforts I’ve ever seen on a story. Many reporters, if not all, who have tried to factually cover this topic have experienced the same opposition as have researchers who dared to uncover vaccine side effects. Those who don’t want the stories explored want to censor the information from the public entirely, lest the public draw the “wrong” conclusions about the facts. The media has largely bought into the conflicted government, political and medical complex propaganda on the topic that marginalizes researchers, journalists and parents who dare to speak to the scientific facts they’ve uncovered or to their own experiences. It’s a giant scandal of its own.

Q: I know you’ve had problems with your Wikipedia page. What happened there?

A: Long story short: there is a concerted effort by special interests who exploit Wikipedia editing privileges to control my biographical page to disparage my reporting on certain topics and skew the information. Judging from the editing, the interest(s) involved relates to the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry. I am far from alone…

(end of interview excerpt)

Does that tell you something about the way major media cover epidemic and vaccine stories?

There is even more.

The staggering capper on this tale? Roughly three weeks after Attkisson’s Swine Flu revelations appeared in print, the CDC, obviously in great distress over the exposure, decided to double down. The best lie to tell would be a huge lie.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon)

Are your eyes popping out of your head? They should be.

So…Google, Facebook, Twitter, do your duty.

Let’s defeat misinformation. Let’s get the facts in front of the public.

Let’s win the war against conspiracy theorists who deceive us.

I’m sure you’re with me. I know you people who run social media are honest, loyal, and trustworthy. I know you’ll do the right thing.

You’re heroes in your own mind. Now become heroes in our minds as well.

The world is waiting.

A long silence ensues.


Maybe I wasn’t clear enough. Look, in the summer of 2009, at the height of the so-called Swine Flu epidemic, the CDC was CLAIMING that thousands of people in the US had Swine Flu. But they had stopped counting cases, secretly. Get it? They stopped because tests on almost ALL Swine Flu patients showed NO sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu. The whole thing was a hoax. HOAX. Get it? And history matters. Now we’re faced with another so-called epidemic, and the word “skepticism” barely begins to describe what our reaction should be.

More silence.


Google, Facebook, Twitter? You mean…you mean…YOU ARE THE CONSPIRATORS? YOU’RE twisting the truth and pushing disinformation? YOU’RE PULLING THE TRICK OF ACCUSING OTHERS OF DOING WHAT YOU’RE REALLY DOING?

Gosh, o golly, gee. You mean…THIS is why, when, every morning I open up my computer and roam around, I see mountains of b.s. news piled high and deep?

Well, I guess that means WE’LL have to censor YOU by walking away.

(sounds of heels clicking rapidly on a corridor floor, growing more faint…)

    “Google, Facebook, Twitter? You mean… YOU’RE twisting the truth and pushing disinformation? YOU’RE PULLING THE TRICK OF ACCUSING OTHERS OF DOING WHAT YOU’RE REALLY DOING?”

    The Dark Side discovered years ago how easy the Public can be mislead and made to believe (or disbelieve) almost anything. Those techniques were discovered decades ago and have since then been fully perfected in accomplishing their Dark-Side agenda task of delivering misinformation, lies, distortions, half-truths, NO-truths… whatever these devils want to do to a gullible Public.

    The sad news? Many, many people it turns out LIKES to be mislead. This may have even surprised the Dark Distorters. And when such mislead people might begin to suspect that they are wrong path about something… they cannot bear the idea of being wrong so they double-down back on to the lies and reinforce their flimsy house of cards of garbage.

    Weak-minded people just can’t tolerate the idea that they might be wrong about something. They have such weakness of character and shallowness of thinking process that they must buttress their shaky and vulnerable sense–of-self and welcome the loving embrace of Big Daddy Tech’s made-up stories that describe the World for them.

    Strong-minded people are willing to admit when they are wrong. Further, people of strength are continuously searching and re-evaluating and fine-tuning their thoughts and ideas as new information is received and considered. But on a Planet of Gullible Sheep… this process is highly discouraged.

    For people to get the truth they first have to WANT the truth. And those who want and care about and seek and embrace truth today are facing the challenges of Big Daddy Tech’s continuous dispensing of endless verbal horse manure and visual blight and a great deal of humanity for whom the truth no longer has any value. If it ever did.

    Big Lying Tech is only half the problem. Maybe not even that much if the Public had the good sense to ignore whatever nonsense the Big Liar devils are peddling in the first place.

      I don’t think anyone likes to be misled but they are quick to relinquish their responsibility to think for themselves if they can delegate it to an authority figure or an ‘expert.’

      I think they are terrified of realizing they have been misled. They are like sleepy drivers waking up to find their car drifting off the road so they turn the car too fast to the right and then frantically turn the wheel too far to the left. On the road of reality they are going to crash and burn.

    • george says:

      Yes. I do not understand why someone would try to wake up the sheep. Why would we want the sheep on our side? The sheep will go against us at first command they get from TV.
      We should stay as far as possible from them. They are not hommo sapiens.

  2. Another aspect of why all this continues is people like to be entertained. Often reporting these stories of terror alien invisible fake viruses is like “War Of The Worlds” and bad B-movie flicks that people can have fun with. The masters all behind these schemes know how to play people so the public gets it’s thrill, like riding a roller coaster and doing it repeatedly getting free rides until they puke, then they back off until they recover and ready to ride some more. We saw the puke pauses a few times when they backed off then started their ride again.

    In learning how to play a better game we might start messing with language as they keep doing. Now they are adding more prefixes to “information” to make it all sound worse. We could refer to “misinformation” as junkformation as in junk science & junk information causing groups to be in formation to become cults that have no clue who they are or what is what anymore. We saw this play out with face diapers what sane person would do that? Then to force these Oxygen Deprivation Devices (ODD) on kids! Total cult behavior.

    We here at Camp Not Malsane can start creating our own new words like all the hustlers do by adding mal, mis, and what’s that other one again “muck” or something they just added to information, and talk all this goopy information puke and foam of theirs like they do so it’s in their face.

    Make your own pronouns and demand to be referred to with them. My pronoun is “super handsome smarter than me” so the woke one needs to speak this way “Hello super handsome smarter than me how is your day going did you find everything you were looking for as if you are the stupid one that can’t ask for help when you need it as you came here for a check up and what you got instead was brainwashing so severe ad effective that we got you to beg to be raped by us with injections of anti-freeze for your malhealth, mishealth, and unprohealth”.

    • William R Hall Jr says:

      I think you are on the right track.

      Everyone has heard the phrase “911 was an inside job,” but never has it been printed or said in the media.

      A good joke travels faster than the news can and makes a more lasting impression.

      A fake virus, a fake medicine to battle the fake virus and an arbitrary test to check for the fake virus. Scamdemic is a good start

      True story: worldwide team. online meeting. Project manager and next two speakers presented themselves with pronouns. A guy from Balkan: I identify as king. You will address to me as You Majesty… PM was very angry “you are making fun of peoples feelings…” His Majesty: “I feel offended”

    Jon, the prescience and continuing relevance of these “best of” essays speak for themselves.

    Even though I saved most of them it is enlightening to review them once again as “trail markings” on the path to “Operation Covidia”.

    The past, as it has been written, is prologue.
