Or…five lies in two paragraphs.
I just noted via the Voices for Freedom Telegram group that the government sponsored media has recently published an article that can best be described as an example of exceedingly poor journalism, and at worst as misinformation.
This article is disturbingly obvious in the way it misrepresents information and leaves out facts that would be important in any un-biased piece of real journalism aimed at an intelligent audience. In this post I want to focus on a five aspects of the Newshub article that appear to be false – and some of these statements are direct quotations from NZ Health Ministry officials.
This is yet another reason why I will not take the experimental mRNA treatment – it is being offered by a Trifecta of Big government, Big Pharma and Big Tech that have repeatedly proven themselves to be dishonest actors.
The image below points out the half truths and falsehoods I found in just two of several paragraphs in the Newshub article. Below the image I discuss why these points are dishonest in what they convey.
Misinformation Item 1: “Doctors Say”
Which doctors? Can you imagine a first year student in journalism handing in a term paper with a statement like “doctors say”? In an earlier age, a real journalist would have interviewed a doctor willing to put their name and reputation on the record to make a statement that there is “no evidence Ivermectin works”. And then a they would have cross-checked that with a second, independent, doctor also willing to put their name and reputation on the line.
I doubt, however, that any smart doctor would stake their name on such a statement because chances are they will end up on the wrong side of history. It is at best a statement that is in dispute by medical experts, and at worst it is provably false (see next point below).
Misinformation Item 2: “No evidence Ivermectin works”
Note that the Newshub article does not say “there is some evidence but it is in dispute”. That would have been true though clearly a partisan view. Instead, it states there is no evidence Ivermectin works. There is no manner of interpreting that sentence that does not come down to it being a falsehood.
To be clear – there is an ongoing dispute about the true efficacy of Ivermectin. But the same can be said about the patented experimental mRNA treatments for which recent data suggest a rapidly waning efficacy over time.
There have been multiple published studies that concluded that Ivermectin works to protect against severe Covid-19 illness. One of these is the study by Kory et al. in the American Journal of Therapeutics, in which the doctors concluded:
Meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 have found large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance. Furthermore, results from numerous controlled prophylaxis trials report significantly reduced risks of contracting COVID-19 with the regular use of ivermectin. Finally, the many examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.Kory et al. in American Journal of Therapeutics
Another is the now infamous study by Bryant et al. – a meta-review of multiple studies that concluded:
Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.Bryant et al. in American Journal of Therapeutics
Misinformation Item 3: “using it is dangerous”
The article author does not provide critical context, and thereby misleads his intended audience. A more neutral and astute journalist would have pointed out that Ivermectin has (a) been on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines; (b) has been in use for decades with billions of doses administered in multiple countries with no excessive adverse effects reported; and (c) studies have shown it to be safe even at high doses.
Clearly the journalist thinks his audience does not have the intelligence to absorb those nuances. It seems that the intent is to mislead readers away from anything that conflicts with the narrative that the patented experimental mRNA treatment is the only way out of the Covid-19 crisis – something which any forward looking, dynamic leadership would have concluded to be not the case already.
Misinformation Item 4: “a medicine meant for horses”
A primary school child can Google their way to the evidence that this is disingenuous at best and harmfully misleading at worst. I will not insult you with further evidence.
Misinformation Item 5: “no studies to show”
See Item 2 above. Once again, Dr Bloomfield does not say “the studies that claim Ivermectin is effective have been criticized by…”. Instead, the Ministry of Health official says, as if it is a fact: “there are no studies to show…” I am trying not to be hyperbolical but it is hard not to call that statement a lie.
All of the above is just one more brick in the wall confirming me in my gut feeling that my government and the mainstream media cannot be trusted. I need to dig deeper and find out for myself what is really going on. I urge you, dear reader, to do the same.
Our problem is that we feel alone and a little crazy. We need to understand that we are NOT alone. We should do our duty as citizens and speak out. A monocultural view on healthcare, lead by Big Pharma will be disastrous to our children’s futures.
If you are feeling disoriented and confused by the onslaught of mainstream media messages that just do not accord with common sense, then consider watching this excellent 21 minute creative video explaining the process of mass psychosis, or how an entire population becomes mentally ill.
If you are just starting to suspect something is off in your governments response to Covid-19, and in their insistence on getting everyone, including children and pregnant women, vaccinated even though it is clearly not a way out of Covid-19, then I urge you to spend a Sunday morning watching this excellent symposium featuring expert scientists, doctors and actuaries. It is not Alex Jones’ type conspiracy talk – just well researched and expertly presented real information. And your mind will open.
Carefully gather your information. Put the pieces together. Take a stand for what you believe in.
There are large groups of scientists, doctors and normal people who have retained critical thinking skills who question what is happening. We can and should take legal and non-violent action to show our concern and disagreement. If you are feeling alone and outnumbered, please take a look at the work of these groups:
- Covid Medical Network – a group of senior medical doctors and health professionals concerned about lockdowns and the lack of safety research on the Covid-19 injections
- NZ Doctors SOS – a group of New Zealand doctors concerned about the lack of adequate safety research on the Covid-19 injections
- Doctors for Covid Ethics – a group of distinguished doctors and scientists from 30 countries, seeking to uphold medical ethics, patient safety and human rights in response to COVID-19
- UKColumn – an independent news site with news about Covid-19 responses and injections. If you are on this site, watch in particular the Doctors for Covid Ethics Symposium Videos, especially Session 2 – it was this session that caused my mind to grasp what is really happening.
- Voices for Freedom NZ – a gutsy grass roots group that is well organized and active. They are being actively targeted by the government sponsored main stream media and branded as “anti-vax” which they are not – they are simply against the coercion to take an experimental gene therapy and against the increasing grip of a totalitarian government.
