The “Fake News” Meme - OpenLink Software Blog - Medium

The mainstream media inundate the American public on a daily basis with the coronavirus's death toll in flashy headlines in an attempt to criticize the Trump administration' response.  While reporting on the increasing death toll daily, progressive and mainstream outlets make disingenuous comparisons to death tolls in past wars and catastrophes.  MSNBC'S Morning Joe reported that the virus will "kill more Americans than were killed in Iraq, Afghanistan."  Vox posted that "the coronavirus has now killed more people in the U.S. than the 9/11 terror attacks."  The Washington PostNPRCNN, and many other outlets gleefully reported that the U.S. coronavirus death toll now exceeds U.S. losses in the Vietnam War. 

The death toll and havoc wrought by the Chinese virus are no doubt real.  However, media coverage of the virus intentionally lacks even a hint of perspective and aims to sow fear.

In 1968, roughly 16,000 U.S. servicemembers died in Vietnam.  That same year, the Hong Kong influenza (H3N2) caused the deaths of roughly 100,000 Americans.  While undoubtedly a tragedy, the U.S. and state governments did not issue any stay at home orders, nor did they shut down the American economy.  In 2018, 67,367 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States.  The media don't sensationalize and hype the annual overdose death toll, which exceeded the U.S. death toll of the entire Vietnam War.  Since 2010, roughly 12,000–61,000 Americans die of the flu on a yearly basis.  During that period, media coverage claiming that more Americans died of the flu than on 9/11 was nonexistent.

The fake news media are attempting to create a visual comparison to manipulate and confuse the American public.  However, in life, perspective is necessary.

It must be asked: why are the media throwing all perspective out the window and hyping the death toll?

  • Dee,

             Thank you for this article, I am going to post this on my facebook page, but I will not tell where, or who wrote this. If that is alright with you. If not let me know and I won't. Thanks.

  • dnc propaganda media - they prove every day, all day, that they are the enemy of the people.  Looked what the wretched scum bags did to Tea Party Patriots  during evil Obama's reign!!

    • it's nothing new right

  • SCARING US IS THE MAIN OBJECTIVE 

    OUR SCHOOLS DO THE REST WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE TO TEACH OUR KIDS

    ONCE THEY SCARE ENOUGH OF US THEY ABUSE THEIR POWERS EXPONENTIALLY AS WE SEE IN BLUE STATES THE RE-OPENING IS PROBABLY IN OH 2050 OR SO ACCORDING TO DE BLASIO.  THEY HAVE NOT DATE B/C THEY WANT NO DATE TO RE-OPEN .

    SCARE; INTIMIDATE AS IL IS DOING; EQUALS OBEDIENCE.   IT IS STUNNING TO SEE AMERICANS GIVE UP THEIR FREEDOMS  NO MATTER WHAT.   IT IS UN-NERVING.   

    WE ARE TOLD THAT A VACCINE IS THE ANS TO WHOM?   REMDESIVIR IS MORE LIKELY IT ALONG W/HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE.   THE MSM DO NOT LIKE THAT B/C IT IS NOT TOTALITARIAN ENOUGH.  

     

    I FEEL YOU ARE RIGHT IS THIS FALSE I THINK THE VIRUS IS REAL BUT IT DID NOT CAUSE THE SHUTDOWN.  GOVERNORS DID.   

    • isn't that the truth

    1. Protests Across Country
      I think these protests against government overreach are playing right into Trump’s main message: drain the swamp , not just in Washington, D. C., but in state, county and municipal governments.

      In fact, I would argue that my main concern is not an FBI agent, but a local crooked cop. They patrol my county and city and can be here in 5 minutes if I don’t register my coronavirus vaccination certificate.

    • interesting 

  • My main interpretive framework is - who benefits.  The second interpretive framework is - who has the capability.  The third interpretive framework is - who has a pattern of false flag operations?  The fourth interpretive framework is - how would it be possible to get populations to voluntarily submit to a martial law police state?  Hold thos 4 thoughts in your head and see where they overlap.  If it is CIA, you got a head on yer shoulders.

    This docu goes deep into the likely origins of the virus, lots of documented references from Nature Journal, Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine and Chinese sources that were later censored by their government. Some serious sleuthing into the wacky, wonderful world of virology.

    • who's going to answer those questions for you? I hope it's not the government.

  • Because the Dems told them to. I joined the Fox Nation and watched Lara Logan's report on the Sandman High School case. She is the epidemy of what investigative reporting is. She reported on things I have never heard about it. He is a very nice kid. They actualy went to where it took place and showd the distance that so called phoney vet had to travel to get to the kids. All Lies about this kid.
