BAT BOY IMPRISONED IN OLD COUPLE’S BASEMENT!
Horrifying, right? And a classic tabloid trick to get the reader to believe Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are lovers who have the very creature responsible for Covid-19 jumping species locked in their farmhouse basement… without saying as much. It is what readers expect from The National Enquirer and The Sun. Outrageous headlines at the grocery checkout. With absolute confidence, I can allege Nancy and Chuck keep far worse secrets… if only we could serve them a subpoena and get them under oath.
However, when it comes to Covid-19, the BBC brings the weight of serious journalism to the table. Nothing tabloid to see here, so just move along!
“The BBC is recognised by audiences in the UK and around the world as a provider of news that you can trust. Our website, like our TV and radio services, strives for journalism that is accurate, impartial, independent and fair.”
The Barely British Corporation would never stoop to lowly tabloid tricks…
… or would they? There is a good case for criticizing the World Health Organization for screwing the pooch by playing politics in the early days of the accurately named Chinese/Wuhan virus, Covid-19. Fake News outlets like the BBC, CNN, MSNBC and like ilk have used the outbreak to terrorize the planet and bludgeon President Trump. If it bleeds, it leads. For example, the Fake News Networks are reporting that if you take hydroxychloroquine YOU MIGHT DIE! They simply discount the fact that millions of people around the world take hydroxychloroquine every single day AND DO NOT DIE! They simply discount the fact that providers know how to prescribe and monitor the drug, so if a patient starts having side effects THEY STOP TAKING THE DRUG BEFORE THEY DIE! If hydroxychloroquine can reduce inflammation in the lungs and stop a victim of Covid-19 from GOING INTO RESPIRATORY ARREST AND DYING, it is worthy of hopeful commentary. Instead, the BBC would rather keep hating my president.
Seriously, approximately 320,000 people die from inhaling dihydrogen monoxide every year. How many people die from taking hydroxychloroquine every year? In terms of math, the number is so low it is not statistically significant.
The BBC’s call to end the politicization of Covid-19 could be positive. By inferring President Trump is the problem, instead of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck-U Schumer, China, Russia, and a legion of other bad-actors like Rachel Madcow (What the hell is wrong with Rhodes Scholars, anyway? Bill Clinton? Pete Buttigieg? Cory Booker? Susan Rice? George Stephanopoulos? Do you see a pattern of personality disorders here?), the BBC reveals they are just another tabloid, Fake News outlet.
President Trump is working hard to deal with a global pandemic that previous administrations left us woefully unprepared. He is doing a damn good job, and if anybody thinks a President Clinton, Biden or Sanders could have done better, you best read up on their comments between January 21st and February 14th. They all disavowed the President’s early, yet politically unpopular actions. Actions that saved tens of thousands of American lives.
