WaPo article, how misinformation was spread,athletes

Recommended Posts

This excellent piece of journalism as to how the rumor that vaccines were killing people was spread. Washington Post has no agenda but to turn in professional journalism, they have won more Pulitzer prizes than any other U.S. publication. There are correspondents of all political stripes, many of whom were considered conservative before the Trump administration. Writers like David Ignatious, Jennifer Rubin and George Wills.  All superstars in the journalism world.

I hope it is not behind a paywall. A trial look is, if I remember, $1.99 per month. This cautionary tale alone is worth that.

Speaking of misinformation, how about those lockdowns you were sold?

Read it for yourself:



Abstract  This systematic review and meta-analysis are designed to determine whether there is empirical evidence to support the belief that “lockdowns” reduce COVID-19 mortality. Lockdowns are defined as the imposition of at least one compulsory, non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI). NPIs are any government mandate that directly restrict peoples’ possibilities, such as policies that limit internal movement, close schools and businesses, and ban international travel. This study employed a systematic search and screening procedure in which 18,590 studies are identified that could potentially address the belief posed. After three levels of screening, 34 studies ultimately qualified. Of those 34 eligible studies, 24 qualified for inclusion in the meta-analysis. They were separated into three groups: lockdown stringency index studies, shelter-in-place-order (SIPO) studies, and specific NPI studies. An analysis of each of these three groups support the conclusion that lockdowns have had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality. More specifically, stringency index studies find that lockdowns in Europe and the United States only reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average. SIPOs were also ineffective, only reducing COVID-19 mortality by 2.9% on average. Specific NPI studies also find no broad-based evidence of noticeable effects on COVID-19 mortality.   While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument. 

Anyone who takes the WashPoop seriously needs a reality check.

Between your "face diaper" disgusting and disrespectful comments, and this one, you seem to have a real fixation with bodily elimination functions.

Get some help.      MOD5, please take action against this person as it maligns good journalism which Chapala.com should be most concerned with.
