Recently, a CNN staffer admitted on camera that the network played up the COVID death toll for ratings.
This should have been a big news story and covered by everyone.
Instead, the Washington Post responds with ‘Hold my beer.’
Last week, undercover journalists at Project Veritas published a secretly recorded video of a CNN employee saying that the network relied on the pandemic for ratings.
In the video, the staffer gleefully boasts how the network used its death toll tracker to keep viewers enticed by CNN’s narrative on the pandemic.
So it was no big surprise when, on the heels of this CNN development, The Washington Post was forced to admit that the mainstream media had been wrong to panic over the crowds that gathered at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri and Clearwater Beach in Florida last spring.
The headline read, “A year into the pandemic, it’s even more clear that it’s safer to be outside.”
Of course, most Americans already knew this, but in the early stages of the pandemic, The Washington Post and other so-called “mainstream media” outlets blasted any large gatherings and party-goers as irresponsible.
Now the Post says the pool party at the lake wasn’t actually the apocalypse Fake News had painted it to be.
In the article, reporters Karin Brulliard and Lenny Bernstein said:
“For more than a year, the vast majority of documented coronavirus clusters have been linked to indoor or indoor-outdoor settings — households, meatpacking plants, nursing homes, and restaurants. Near-absent are examples of transmission at beaches and other open spaces where breezes disperse airborne particles, distancing is easier, and humidity and sunlight render the coronavirus less viable.”
In fact, the Director of Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services said that extensive tracing efforts found no coronavirus clusters connected to the weekend at the lake.
It took a year, but finally the truth is out – the socialist elite and their lapdogs in the so-called “mainstream media” are using a virus with 99% survival rate to control the masses.
