There may be only one thing that spreads faster than Covid and that’s left-wing propaganda. In its determination to portray conservative Americans and Trump supporters as backward, uneducated mouth-breathers, major fake news organizations spread false reports about the drug Ivermectin and hospitals.
On this The Hill exclusive, Robby Soave takes the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow to task over their promotion of the fake news story and their unwillingness to admit their mistake.
A recent report originating in Oklahoma claimed that state hospitals were being overrun with cases, but not necessarily with Covid cases. A local “journalist” interviewed a rather colorful medical professional who appears to claim that hospitals are overrun with overdose victims who believe Ivermectin will cure their Covid symptoms.
Truth be told, Dr. Jason McElyea didn’t exactly say that no beds were available due to overdoses. That little caveat was slipped in by the media.
Like so many false reports that biased and lazy media employees turn into viral clickbait, every conceivable liberal outlet picked up the story without checking any facts whatsoever. Even minimal fact checking would have revealed that Dr McElyea did not even work at that hospital.
Not only did organizations such as the Associated Press push the hoax, but some even added photos that showed Oklahomans standing in long lines wearing winter coats and gloves, unable to get into emergency rooms. It’s over 90 degrees in Oklahoma!
It’s abundantly clear the establishment media has no interest in fact-checking information that skews against conservative Americans and those living in rural areas. If you want to know how far the fake news went to add insult to this injury and what they truly think of you, watch this segment of Rising and get the facts.
