The Media is Lying About the ‘Second Wave’Written by Ron Paul Monday June 29, 2020

For months, the Washington Post and the rest of the mainstream media kept a morbid Covid-19 “death count” on their front pages and at the top of their news broadcasts. The coronavirus outbreak was all about the number of dead. The narrative was intended to boost governors like Cuomo in New York and Whitmer in Michigan, who turned their states authoritarian under the false notion that destroying people’s jobs, freedom, and lives would somehow keep a virus from doing what viruses always do: spread through a population until eventually losing strength and dying out.

The “death count” was always the headline.

But then all of a sudden early in June the mainstream media did a George Orwell and lectured us that it is all about “cases” and has always been all about “cases.” Death, and especially infection fatality rate, were irrelevant. Why? Because from the peak in April, deaths had decreased by 90 percent and were continuing to crash. That was not terrifying enough so the media pretended this good news did not exist.

With massive increases in testing, the “case” numbers climbed. This is not rocket science: the more people you test the more “cases” you discover.

Unfortunately our mainstream media is only interested in pushing the “party line.” So the good news that millions more have been exposed while the fatality rate continues to decline - meaning the virus is getting weaker - is buried under hysterical false reporting of “new cases.”

Unfortunately many governors, including our own here in Texas, are incapable of resisting the endless lies of the mainstream media. They are putting Americans again through the nightmare of forced business closures, mandated face masks, and restrictions of Constitutional liberties based on false propaganda.

In Texas the “second wave” propaganda has gotten so bad that the leaders of the four major hospitals in Houston took the extraordinary step late last week of holding a joint press conference to clarify that the scare stories of Houston hospitals being overwhelmed with Covid cases are simply untrue. Dr. Marc Boom of Houston Methodist said the reporting on hospital capacity is misleading. He said, “quite frankly, we’re concerned that there is a level of alarm in the community that is unwarranted right now.”

In fact, there has been much reporting that the “spike” in Texas cases is not due to a resurgence of the virus but to hospital practices of Covid-testing every patient coming in for any procedure at all. If it’s a positive, well that counts as a “Covid hospitalization.” Why would hospitals be so dishonest in their diagnoses? Billions of appropriated Federal dollars are being funneled to facilities based on the number of “Covid cases” they can produce. As I’ve always said, if you subsidize something you get more of it. And that’s why we are getting more Covid cases.

Let’s go back to the original measurements used to scare Americans into giving up their Constitutional liberties: the daily death numbers. Even though we know hospitals have falsely attributed countless deaths to “Covid-19” that were deaths WITH instead of FROM the virus, we are seeing actual deaths steadily declining over the past month and a half. Declining deaths are not a great way to push the “second wave” propaganda, so the media and politicians have moved the goal posts and decided that only “cases” are important. It’s another big lie.

Resist propaganda and defend your liberty. That is the only way we’ll get through this.

They have already started their narrative about a new H1N1 virus in pigs in China with "pandemic potential".

This is exactly what I also have noticed. The media are plain liars and plainly enemies of the people for doing so. They provide no perspective. None. We didn't hear the good news of a record low of 200 + deaths about a couple weeks ago. Total silence on that. Their goal is plainly to get Joe Biden through the door. Today we saw a surge in new jobs in the USA and the big 3 networks had NOTHING to say about that.

What a sad comment on the free market and conservative values if the the media is “corrupt”. I guess they don’t work.

Or, we could get past our emotion and fears and apply some actual free market and conservative principles... the media is what it is because it’s only job is to make a product for sale to largest market it can sell to. It has no responsibility to anyone other than the shareholders and they say to sell to the most amount of people. If you don’t like the fact that the majority of people sit around the political Center, then please continue to stick your head in the sand and be confused as to what is happening. Jesus, when did conservatives become so married to their fears? So sad.

We can't trust one single thing we hear about this virus. Not one.

All we can do is use our own eyes and judge for ourselves. How many people have you personally know who have had this disease? Do you know anyone who has died? Is your local hospital overflowing?

I know somebody who knows somebody who had it. One person. I don't know anyone who died from it. Our local hospital emergency is empty.

Everyone is in a panic here because 28 people became infected from a nail salon. 28 people out of over 200,000. Last I heard, one of them was in the hospital. Now we must all wear masks indoors to control this "outbreak".

Is that not consistent with the publicly available data? There just haven't been that big of an epidemic in Canada yet. Why not keep it that way?

At least two of my close friends lost relatives to coronavirus.

Two friends in their mid 30s got it. They were sick for several weeks. I only know because we happened to email about something else afterwards. I don't know if they have long term symptoms. I worry for one of them, as she used to be a marathon runner. I don't know if they were in France or Germany when they got it.

I met a new friend yesterday. She told me that one of her best friends, who was living in NY and was in her mid-30s, died of coronavirus.

I spoke to my cousin a few weeks ago. Both his father and mother in law got it. They're in their 60s I think. They were very sick. I think that they were in the clinical trials for remdesivir. They live in LA.

My aunt had it. She lives in Montreal.

The media is still spreading the fear porn. New lows in deaths in the USA so now they are playing the "cases" angle.
