I’m compelled to issue a warning linking to my latest commentary: If you have wholeheartedly believed and embraced all the mainstream media’s government approved Covid reporting, this post might be hazardous to your health. Reader discretion is advised.
Propecia & the FDA’s Blind Eye to Drug Risks
The Israeli publication Haaretz in September published a blistering expose about how adverse side effects of the hair growth drug Propecia destroyed the lives of countless men in that country. Notably, the Atlantic, a publication at the forefront of the U.S. media that published stories discrediting Covid vaccine critics, in 2012 discredited early critics who warned about Propecia’s side effects.
The FDA failed to act on repeated warnings about Propecia, even after European and Canadian regulators moved to alert consumers about the drug’s risks.
The Twits Who Censored Dr. Jay Bhattacharya
When I think blacklists, I immediately imagine the McCarthy era. But it has been revealed that Twitter’s censors previously maintained blacklists, and among those whose tweets were suppressed was an impeccably credentialed Stanford professor with a medical degree and a PhD.
His sin? Disagreeing with U.S. government pandemic policies.
Wajahat Ali’s Threats to U.S. Democracy
I’ve come to believe that people who declare themselves the biggest protectors of American democracy too often are the most formidable threats to fair and honest elections. To substantiate this position, I offer you Wajahat Ali, a contributor to the New York Times and MSNBC.
Why Mainstream Journalists Fear Matt Taibbi
Journalism was once a profession dominated by people who wanted to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” Independent journalist Matt Taibbi still adheres to that principle, which is why the mainstream media wants to take him down.
Kanye Exposes America’s Pervasive Jew Hatred
The legacy media is feigning a concern about Trump having dinner with avowed Jew haters, but their motivation is to discredit Trump, not a genuine worry about the spread of antisemitism.
The bigger story is that a big swath of America shares Kanye West’s views, including many journalists who work for the legacy media.
Sam Bankman-Fried’s Alleged History of Deceit
To dismiss the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange as a trading story is akin to labeling Watergate a burglary incident. The scandal raises issues about the valuations of storied venture capital firms and Silicon Valley’s cozy relationship with Congressional Democrats.
The Company Senator Debbie Stabenow Keeps
In my mind, the two biggest stories at the moment are the collapse of crypto firm FTX and a Department of Labor lawsuit filed against Packers Sanitation Services Inc. alleging the giant company providing janitorial services to leading slaughterhouses and meatpacking facilities was using child labor. It’s unfortunate if you aren’t aware of the lawsuit because the allegations are a disturbing commentary on U.S. society and business, particularly given the ownership of Packers Sanitation.
Here’s how Michigan’s senior Senator Debbie Stabenow figures into both stories.
On My Mind: November 17, 2022
Some thoughts on why lawyers for Theranos fraudster Elizabeth Holmes convinced me she deserves significant jail time; a misguided advocate’s attempts to cancel Henry Ford in Detroit because of his antisemitism; the resurging demand for manual transmissions; and fall colors in West Los Angeles.
FTX, President Biden, and the Intercept Orbit
As deftly reported by Ashley Rindsberg in the online magazine Tablet, the media played an integral role creating the myth of Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced CEO of crypto exchange FTX.
Bankman-Fried donated to various publications, including the Intercept, an online publication that possibly contributed to the election of President Biden.
