All the news media in Ireland have gone ballistic in the last few days ramping up the Covid fear to new extreme levels. There are already 100,000s of people absolutely terrified by their misleading news and this sustained level of fear for over 10 months now is very likely leading to very dangerous health conditions for these people leading to heart conditions, mental issues, cancer and all sorts of problems caused largely by the extreme stress that they have put themselves under because unfortunately the media and the politicians are giving highly distorted, mis-leading inaccurate and sensational news about the Covid situation.

A good example is the news from the past few days where we are told the hospitals are overflowing with Covid patients and as of today it is claimed 46 are dead from Covid.

The aim of this article is to bring some context and reality to this, something the mainstream media and politicians and their bureaucrats are strenuously going out of their way to not do.

In surprise move Glenn Greenwald who helped publish NSA Edward Snowden's revelations on widespread mass spying and other activities and who setup the The Intercept with Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill in 2014 as a vehicle to publish this material, has resigned from it.

He has been forced out by the editors who tried to stop him from publish his recent articles on the Joe Biden email scandal. They were trying to protect the Joe Biden camp.

He tweeted: The same trends of repression, censorship and ideological homogeneity plaguing the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet I co-founded, culminating in censorship of my own articles.

Greenwald has released a lengthy statement on this issue which we reproduce here.

Van Morrison and Andrew Lloyd Webber have enough and has launched the Save Live Music Campaign and have released this message

As you know, we are doing socially distanced gigs at Newcastle Upon Tynes Gosforth Park, Electric Ballroom and The London Palladium. This is not a sign of compliance or acceptance of the current state of affairs, this is to get my band up and running and out of the doldrums. This is also not the answer going forward. We need to be playing to full capacity audiences going forward.

I call on my fellow singers, musicians, writers, producers, promoters and others in the industry to fight with me on this.

Come forward, stand up, fight the pseudo-science and speak up. ... read full story / add a comment
