There are all kinds of bias, but the one the media is best at is omission. Any story that cuts against the narrative is cleaved from the ‘heard’, where the press makes certain it will die in darkness.
By now, we will be used to the sorts of stories that somehow manage NOT to fall under the watchful eye of our ever-vigilant presstitutes.
Hearing them tell it you’d have thought New York and California were the most successful of all states in fighting the pandemic, whereas Texas, Florida and South Dakota were veritable killing fields where bodies will soon be stacked like cordwood.
That’s not the case. In fact, about two weeks ago, some 50% of seniors had been vaccinated, and it is expected that the full number of Floridians over 65 who want to be vaccinated will have received theirs by some time in April.
Chinavirus deaths in Florida are plummeting since the group in the greatest danger of dying from it is getting vaccinated in record time.
But there is other news that is being under-reported. Considering how much they love their fear-porn, it’s surprising this hasn’t been a bigger story.
Unless they understood that telling this story would have kneecapped other narratives, like the one about teachers demanding everyone get vaccinated before returning to work.
Surely we have all seen enough medical treatment ads on TV to realize that ALL medical procedures, however routine, carry a certain amount of risk, haven’t we?
Even a fairly routine dental surgery carries the risk of fatal complications. What responsible medical practitioners to offset that possibility do is offer their patient something called ‘informed consent’.
Once you have a firm grasp of what the risks are, you can make a decision whether the benefits of proceeding with a proceedure are enough outweigh the risks associated with it.
Sometimes they will, sometimes they will not.
Ultimately it’s the patient’s call either way. We do not all have the same risk tolerance levels.
So why haven’t we heard much about the attendant risks associated with the brand-new vaccines? Surely there ARE some, aren’t there? Or is this the very first medical treatment in history we have pumped into our bodies without a single serious side effect?
Spoiler alert: it is not.
The latest data made public by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) on deaths and injuries reported after COVID vaccines are in line with trends that have been emerging since the first data were released in December.
Between Dec. 14, 2020 and Feb. 18, 2021, 19,907 reports of adverse events have been reported to VAERS, including 1,095 deaths and 3,767 serious injuries.
About a third of the deaths reported occurred within 48 hours of vaccination, and 48% of the people who died became ill within 48 hours of being vaccinated. —Children’s Health Defense

When it comes right down to it, wearing or not wearing a mask in public, and getting or not getting a vaccine boils down to the same issue…
A free individual has to weigh the risks and do what he or she thinks is best. Even those who think they are doing the no-brainer safe decision may find out too late that it was a little more nuanced than that.
Take it, or don’t. That’s up to you.
But whatever your decision, you owe it to yourself to be fully aware of what the implications of your decisions are — either way, you don’t get a do-over if you don’t like the consequences that came with your decision.
