"They [the media] are news-as-entertainment professionals – packaging glossy corporate content for maximum distribution and big bucks. The goal is not objective reportage. Their targets are quantifiable and highlighted in a business plan somewhere. Success is based on a simple formula: stay within parameters "understandable" to a wide audience that devours sound bites and familiar storylines on the hour, every hour.

Like trained seals whose every desire, instinct and buying pattern has been measured by corporate media's marketing department for the consumption of its advertisers, the audience demands satisfaction – and western media delivers it." -- Sharmine Narwani

Joe Biden once again attacked Republican lawmakers for banning sexually explicit books in schools. Of course, Biden is upset sexually explicit books are banned from schools and libraries. This is the same guy who took showers with his daughter and openly molests children. “This is 2024! Banning books!

Cochrane Collaboration co-founder Peter Gøtzsche has written an article that reads as an open letter to scientists the world over.

“Looking back, it seems appropriate to abbreviate the covid-19 pandemic as the covid-19 panic, or to call it the pandemic of censorship and poor science,” he writes.

Science and free speech were among the earliest victims of covid-19. Free debate became a thing of the past.  Knowledgeable scientists who spoke out were harassed, censored and publicly humiliated.  Those who dared write critically about not just the vaccines but anything medically related were smeared with the labels “anti-vaxx” or “anti-science.”
