Yesterday I retweeted a story about the death of Elisa Granato from a vaccine trial.
It turns out that it was a fake story.
The Guardian (for once) tells the truth. Full article to be found here.k
Mea Culpa – I was wrong
When I am proven right I will tell you and when I am wrong I will tell you. The question is whether or not I am embarrassed. The answer is no. Why am I not embarrassed? The reason that I am not embarrassed is because we are in the middle of an information war and false stories get deliberately planted.
False stories and disinformation get planted in order to destroy the credibility of truth tellers. You only need to tell one falsehood and you are no longer credible. They want to discredit anyone who is against receiving a vaccination. This is an obvious set up. The “victim” is a scientist (Doctor) involved in the trial. This false story was a plant. Here is how you do it. You get someone to write a false story. You wait until it circulates or goes viral. Then you get the “victim” to denounce the false story and ridicule anyone who has genuine concerns.
The mistake that I made was being too trusting. When I investigated the source I found out that it was NT News and the original article was written by James Alami. News NT is a relatively new player online; its domain name was only registered a month ago. A subheadline written in Vietnamese in the republished English-language article suggests the site originates from that Southeast Asian country. Hardly anything else can be discovered about this News outlet or about the author. This immediately sets of alarm bells. Looking at his (?) other stories many are anti-China or exaggerations of one sort or another. So, I will never quote that source again for anything.
I freely admit that I made a mistake and that sometimes happens in such a fast moving news cycle. However, it was a genuine mistake and not deliberate and as soon as I discovered the truth a correction was issued. Here is what you need to take away from this. These people have enormous power and money. They manipulate and use the press all the time. They use disinformation to discredit and shut down debate or investigation. They use false stories and labels like “conspiracy theory” to shut you up. This was a fake story planted by big pharma to ruin the reputations of truth tellers. It won’t work. Perhaps you have even done me a favor. We see now how you play on emotions and manipulate with guilt in order to push your agenda. You make ordinary people feel like murders just because they want to live a free life and not live in your lockdown kingdom of Corona.
