We can confidently place most of the blame for public fear and ignorance about COVID-19 squarely on the mainstream media. This has apparently become the main mission of this propaganda branch of the Left, from which the misinformation originates.
Not surprisingly, those relying on mainstream media remain utterly unaware of the gigantic anti-COVID-19 lockdown protests occurring around the world. And what’s really remarkable, given the flood of up-to-date data and observable evidence to the contrary, a significant number of people still believe that COVID-19 is something to be unusually feared, when it has already statistically proven to be far less deadly than an average flu season.
Much of the media’s misinformation campaign has been intentionally driven by the use of false definitions and fraudulent statistics. Key words and terms continually misrepresented include the following: ‘SARS CoV-2 virus,’ ‘COVID-19,’ ‘pandemic,’ ‘cases,’ ‘deaths,’ and even the word ‘mask’ itself. Thus, confusion reigns.
By far, the most abused term is ‘cases,’ a favored statistic reported daily by propagandists. The question always begs asking, ‘cases’ of what? Rarely are distinctions made between ‘cases’ of ‘COVID-19,’ or ‘cases’ of ‘SARS CoV-2’ or ‘cases’ of ‘deaths,’ or even ‘cases’ they call ‘resolved.’ And it doesn’t help when the term ‘COVID-19 cases’ is used interchangeably with ‘coronavirus cases’ or other such combinations. Confusion persists, all for the lack of definition!
