Fear sells. This study conducted by various researchers showed the news in the US was much more negative than other news outlets around the world. In fact, in the US, major news outlets shared negative COVID news 86% of the time even when the news was positive. For example, if overall rates of infection were on decline, the news would focus in on the few areas where cases were up. Other countries in the study showed only 50% negative coverage whereas scientific journals were 65% negative overall. This just raises another alarm regarding the fact our news media is simply a money making industry.

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
