Doctor Fact-Checks Media On Coronavirus

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
The media is doing a poor job informing the public with accurate information on COVID-19. They bring on self-proclaimed experts that make claims that have no ground in science and sometimes are full-on lying. Also, I think they are leaning into the fear angle too hard in order to draw clicks and viewership. I believe they should uphold proper journalistic standards and stick to the facts!

_"members of Congress are human petri dishes"_

He just described himself and his peers as being covered in scum. Apt.

The worst, IMO, was the early “if you are young, then you are fine” message. I cringed every time a reporter said it. First, how would they know, given that this was a novel virus in a new population!? Second, this was very counterproductive to the best preventive measure, physical isolation, because why isolate when you can party with your other “immune” young friends? You are at less risk when young, but you CAN die or have a really awful experience with Covid-19, as the many “what I would tell me young peer” articles from the many young patients can attest.

Husband and I were discussing this just yesterday. He was saying he’s not even so nervous about getting sick, what really worries him are supply shortages because of the absolute panic everyone has gotten into.

NatGeo is a Disney product line: stories raising emotional responses. Facts are just an aside, blur them as much as possible. They're in the business of entertainment.

Finally, someone with a level headed approach without fear mongering.Thats all the media does is poison the airwaves to get ratings and to manufacture panic.God gave me an immune system so I'll trust in His design rather than the " pearls of wisdom " from man.

As another “Dr. Mike” (ER doc, in my case), I totally agree with the sentiments expressed here (especially re: “Appalling Paltrow“). That is, until the last paragraph, where Dr. Mike urges the media to “listen to trusted organizations like the CDC and WHO (World Health Organization). The CDC has been very helpful, especially Dr. Anthony Fauci (although CDC was “sandbagged“ by the Chinese Communist Party [the CCP] trying to hide the details of this outbreak from the world for more than the first month, AFTER what they (CCP) knew about what this outbreak was doing to their own population.
This severity of this world viral pandemic rests solidly at the feet of, and as blood on the hands of, the CCP.

Unfortunately, WHO has recently been unveiled as largely another mouthpiece for the CCP propaganda machine. Putting ANY faith in what the CCP says, or trusting the statistics the CCP releases from China is sheer folly. I’m sure WHO was also initially misled by the lies propagated by the CCP, but for WHO to continue to still “carry the propaganda water“ for the CCP is incredibly demeaning, and discredits any good information the WHO might actually be releasing.

I want that guy, who says to give the virus to everybody, to get it himself. Both strains. Then we'll see if he's one of the boomers who survive.

Because Jürgen Klopp is a pretty rational and just good guy. He has such a great reputation in Germany and the UK because he is a decent and grounded person. Well done Jürgen.
