The Pew Center does a yearly? analysis of media bias.

Numerous media sources with a decent ranking also do periodic analysis- a simple search should turn up some decent results.

The sad reality is that when we went from the reality of ABC/CBS/NBC/PBS that many of us here grew up with - to dozens if not hundreds of broadcast "news" networks- not to mention hundreds if not thousands of online sources... they increasingly had to cater to a niche audience.

And while pretty much every real news organization has had to drastically cut their reporter pool- especially foreign correspondents- I'dsay the AP and Reuters are the most unbiased reporters of "hard news"... just the facts of events.

Im the real of as it happens news and analysis... I still think NPR/PBS does a very good job (although I'll admit some of the local programs in particular can be quite biased to the left).

There is a lot of excellent reporting and analysis from periodicals. And yes, much of it has a strong bias. But it is still often worth reading...

I think the most important thing is not to fall into the trap of only viewing news that supports your viewpoints. Seek out quality news, reporting, and analysis even when, especially when it challenges your views. Spend the time and energy to understand the underlying "facts". And take the time to absorb the different analysis of the situation.

Not that may tests today but a nasty little uptick in the new cases. Nice that 9 more are listed as recovered and we are holding strong at 1 person who lost their life. Hopefully the greater new cases is not a trend. Keep your head down out there.
They have taken the new case metric off the chart.

Read and check links: Plan-demic underway


The GreenMedInfo NewsletterApril 8, 2020

We’re all in the midst of an epochal, civilization-level shift that is challenging us individually and collectively to our cores. This is making it exceedingly difficult to focus on the positive. But I'm going to try -- after speaking candidly about what I think is going on.

I’m someone, as you probably know, who has a platform -- GreenMedInfo -- which has both been promoting the science of natural healing, as well as shedding light on the dark side of pharmaceuticals and the industry driving them, for the past decade.

Over the years, we’ve had an incredible amount of support, as well as push back, including attempts to de-platform us in March of 2019. At the time, it was our work on health rights advocacies and on pointing out the lack of safety and effectiveness research on increasingly coerced or mandated vaccination, that resulted in us being banned from social media sites like Pinterest, shut down through our email platform Mailchimp (a CDC partner), and then delisted from Google.

Back then, it would have been far easier to label us “conspiracy theorists” simply for pointing out the open-source data showing there was a global agenda to mandate vaccination. And now, sadly, we are all seeing this agenda unfold in front of our eyes, everywhere -- with Bill Gates himself announcing that we should prepare to stay on perpetual lockdown until one of the seven vaccine companies he is investing billions into has a vaccine ready to “save us." Gates also suggests that we would need a digital certificate to prove we are "immune" post-vaccination, lest we prevented from returning to work or traveling.

What’s most disturbing to me is not that this sort of thing is happening, rather, that so few seem to be resisting the mainstream narrative being fire-hosed 24/7. Billions of humans “sheltering in place” over a virus that was never properly identified, is not being accurately tested, nor is required by the US government or WHO to be virus tested, but only “suspected” to have been the cause of death to be officially recorded on death certificates, which fan the media flames of the already hysterical fatality statistics.

As this highly dubious and synthetic body count piles up (remember: "there are liars, damn liars, and then there are statisticians"), and powerful financial and global governance institutions the world over capitalize on this narrative, our former lives, and freedoms, fade further and further away into the past.

In the interest of breaking free from the disabling complacency all around us, I think it's time we all speak truthfully about the reality: this is not a classical pandemic, but a "plan-demic," i.e. this event was premeditated and serves agendas far beyond simply protecting the public health. While the truth (documented in better detail below) can be disturbing, at this point, we have nothing more to lose (we are on global house arrest). And as I said in my last personal note, I think you are more than strong enough to handle it (many of you have known this already anyway), and the truth will set us all free, in a situation where near-universal deception is the reason why we are presently in global lockdown.

Whether a biological weapon, or naturally occurring virus, or not a virus at all (but an epidemic of false testing), this crisis is being us as an opportunity to accelerate a number of agendas which stand in direct opposition to your sovereignty, well-being, ability to make a living, and your basic human and civil rights, and have been, in some cases, decades in the making.

If you want to catch up with the actual subtext of what the media and government agencies are spinning, watch these two videos (there are dozens more out there):

1) Medical Martial Law 2020 [1:09 hours] by James Corbett
2) Henry Kissinger & Bill Gates Call For Mass Vaccination & Global Governance [42 mins] by Spiro Skouras

I encourage you to do your own research, as always. Google the following things, especially if you have any significant doubt that there is more to the story than just a “deadly virus" running amok:

1) Event 201
2) Rockefeller’s Lockstep from 2010
3) Coronavirus vaccine patent US10130701B2
4) CDC Quarantine Program Job ID HHS-CDC-D3-20-10640010

I'm confident that, knowing this, you will start to connect the dots, of which there are hundreds more.

The question, of course, is what can we do about this? What if the threat is manufactured (or at least profoundly inflated beyond what even Fauci recently wrote in his NEJM editorial is similar to the seasonal flu)? Clearly, if leaving one’s home without permission is now a crime, and because a national emergency has been declared, you have no right to due process, it is a risky thing to act as if this is NOT as dangerous as everyone around you may be saying.

Many are afraid they’ll be reported by neighbors for violating the orders. There are also the newly granted powers many governments around the world have given themselves to use cell phone data to track our movements and contacts via the GPS function (which still functions when your phone is on airplane mode or powered down).

I don’t have all the answers right now. But I’m in the same boat as you; we're all in this together. What I am doing, is collecting your survey feedback via our partners at Stand For Health Freedom, to work on a campaign to raise awareness and create a digitally scalable action, intended to stand up for your basic rights, which, I believe, should include your right to conduct your business and make a living without the threat of imprisonment while others have the right to continue to self-quarantine (as long as it is not mandated for everyone under the false promise that this is an effective health policy applied through the Constitutionally protected least restrictive means possible).

Finally, if you want to take positive action, I invite you to join me in my upcoming reading and discussion club for REGENERATE: Unlocking Your Body's Radical Resilience through the New Biology. This book was literally written for this time, as it shows you how to both know and access the incredible resilience deep within your body, heart, and mind, and helps you resist patently false ideologies based on outdated medical beliefs and concepts that are presently being weaponized against us. If you are interested, get a hold of or keep reading the book, and you’ll get an email in a week or so, inviting you to participate, which will include a livestream component with Q and A’s.

Sending you my best regards!

The WHO Announces "Suspected" Cases of COVID-19 Should Be Written As COVID-19 Deaths (No Virus Test Required)

In a stunning disregard for medical and scientific integrity, the WHO posted its new guidelines for determining official deaths from COVID-19 which do not require cases be positively confirmed through virus testing, but only that it is suspected to be a cause of death.

Here's another one. It's starting to get to some people...
The rapidity of the Obama administration's response to the H1N1 flu in 2009 is impressive, especially so when contrasted to the #TrumpAdministration's abject failure regarding #COVID19. Check out the timelines below in the link from Daily Kos.

COVID-19 has taken just 43 days to blow past the deaths that the H1N1 pandemic generated in a year

Letter to Dr. Fauci ~ Hosting a Virtual Seder
From: Butterfly     
Posted: April 8, 2020, 11:24 pm

Dear Dr. Fauci,

I’m really sorry to bother you, it’s just that I’m hosting a virtual Seder this year and I want to make sure everything is kosher. I mean, this night will be different from all other nights, mostly because I’m not even sure what night it is anymore. You too, probably, but for different reasons. You’re busy saving the world on four hours of sleep (Dayenu, am I right?), and I’m busy watching C-SPAN, eating Lucky Charms by the fistful, and not bothering to change from my daytime athleisure wear to my nighttime athleisure wear.
This is all just to say that not only are you our country’s best hope and conveyor of concise medical information, but you’re also America’s zayde, trustworthy and sage.

I’ve checked the CDC website and none of this is on there, so if you have a few minutes to answer these questions, I’d be grateful:

  • How do I disinfect a Seder plate?
  • How many extra handwashing steps should I add to the Seder? I mean, there are two already built-in. Should I add more, possibly ratcheting the evening up to seven hours, or should we just hold the whole thing over the sink?
  • Because this debate will come up (it’s the nature of the beast): Would wandering in the desert be advisable at this time? That is assuming there is manna from heaven and/or Amazon Prime, enough water and shelter, and we keep six feet away from other wanderers.
  • We’re forbidden from eating things like leavened wheat, barley, rye, oats, or spelt. Unfortunately, the only thing left at Costco yesterday was a 50-pound sack of spelt. I’ll obviously hold off on eating it until after the holiday but need to know what is the LD50 on spelt?
  • I’d love to be sure I’m coronavirus-free before asking my husband and kids to the table, but the only tests I can get my hands on are an expired ClearBlue Easy and a gently used Cologuard. Which do you think would reassure my family more?
  • My Uncle Murray insists on tweeting that Manischewitz cures coronavirus. In case the president sees this, please tell him it’s not true. Also that he shouldn’t retweet it, no matter how tempted he is by Uncle Murray’s use of all-caps.
  • When the Treasury sends everyone some “Corona cash,” would you mind bundling that with a Xanax prescription for parents? You see, we’ve been e-learning these last few eternal days, and if we have to hear one more question — never mind four questions — a great cry will go out over all the land, such as never has been heard before, and never will be heard again.
  • Can the president use the Defense Production Act to have gefilte fish factories converted to make... literally anything else?
  • Does opening the door for Elijah violate the “no more than ten people” gathering rule?
  • Instead of sending the kids on a search for the hidden afikomen, can I send them on a search around town for a megapack of Charmin Ultra, even if it means they miss some of the Seder? Not your area of expertise, but I trust your judgment on these matters.
  • I’ve been carb-loading ever since we started sheltering in place. Will the charoset act like my own personal digestive mortar? Or will it put me on the express chariot to the hoop?
  • Where can I find Kosher for Passover matzah? I know this is another question outside your field, but maybe you can ask that fucker Steve Mnuchin. He’s probably got an entire pallet hidden in his basement lair next to a golden calf.
  • Our local dispensary is an essential business. Can I go there for the requisite “bitter herb?”
  • I know you’re unable to state for sure, but based on your experience, do you think “Next Year in Jerusalem” — politics aside — is feasible? Or should it be changed to “Next Year via FaceTime”?
Thank you, Dr. Fauci, for leading us through this. When this is all over, please come for dinner. Hope you like spelt.
— Jackie

Re: Wal-Mart, Target, etc in the age of Coronavirus
From: Goat Rock Ukulele     
Posted: April 9, 2020, 2:58 am
I shopped Sebastopol Safeway yesterday. I was very unimpressed by their mitigation measures. It was suggested days ago that everyone wear masks in public. As we all know the plain masks protect the other guy more from you so you would think their checkers would be using them. Most customers were. They are talking to you while they are dealing with your food. That is a perfect vector for droplets on your food.

So I say Safeway isn't.

In LA now everyone is required and you can be denied service if you don't have a mask. There are stats that say if everyone wears a mask of some sort it cuts transmission by 60%. So it only makes sense that we should do so until this mess is over. Where in the hell is the leadership on these kind of issues? This entire Covid-19 response by the Trump Administration is such a failure.

Does anyone know a store where the checkers are masked up?

Umm- actually- as I said I was out to get groceries. The phone call was part of an effort I'm involved with (with many others) getting everything from nitrile gloves. 99% isopropyl and 90+% alcohol from the cannabis industry into the hands of hospitals and first responders. If you have a problem with me sitting in a parking lot for an hour dealing with those logistics then you have a serious problem... (never mind that the "shelter in place" does not forbid us from getting groceries- nor does it forbid us from sitting in our car in a parking lot maintaining much greater then the 6 ft social distancing... )

You heard wrong about Andy’s- they have serious measures in place- I was there yesterday. My only observation was that the newly-installed clear plexiglass panels to protect the cashiers could be larger. They are the only food store that I have been in that is taking this seriously.
Fair enough. Maybe they've stepped things up. I do love Andy's. My info was from several days before the post- an "at risk" friend who said they were doing nothing to control the number of people in the store and that it felt VERY unsafe.

I just sent a letter to Oliver's Customer Service regarding their Montecito store in Santa Rosa.

The cashiers did not have masks and the stores were not monitored at all - I stopped at Whole Foods on Yulupa, right after and they had a long line with a masked door person (one door open) allowing only a few
customers in at a time.

I was surprised that Olivers' is not protecting their cashiers, who as you know, are on the front lines and heavily exposed to hundreds of people.

There were very few people wearing masks in that crowded store. And realizing that the masks we wear only protect others from us, makes it more worrisome.

The truth is we have done so little testing in this state. And so we have NO idea how many people are impacted. In the Press Democrat yesterday, the senior infectious disease advisor said that they are projecting the Virus PEAKS in June. That's two months away! We are all in a kind of sleep walk I think. This is not New York - but it could be.

We are at the beginning of this thing.

I should add- the day after I posted this Wal-Mart did announce steps to limit the number of people in their stores at one time.

Too little to late imho... especially since their stores are massive and and only a portion of them can be considered "essential". But.... to play devils advocate... they do in fact serve a population that often does not have back accounts or credit cards- and are cut off from ordering basics...and non0basics... online.

I'll also add- when I went to grocery shop- a Whole Foods somewhere here in CA.... there were no controls whatsoever on the number of people in the store. It was beyond crowded and social distancing was not an option. I walked out.

Car-avans to protect prisoners from COVID
From: Moon     
Posted: April 9, 2020, 5:19 am
>>>>>>>>>From Sunday, 4/12, through Saturday, 4/18, there will be a daily line of cars driving around the county offices, with signs taped to cars' sides, hoods and roofs or otherwise attached so as not to limit the driver's view. Their gist is to be that prisoners must be protected from the great risk of COVID-19 due to crowding, through releases (with therapy follow-up) and increased sanitary measures within the jail and/or other facilities. Sunday, 4/12, and Saturday, 4/18, the action will be 1:00-2:30; Monday-Friday it will be 5:30-7:00. We'll meet in the parking lot north of Lucky Market across Mendocino at 150 Bicentennial--same shopping center as Home Depot; north is to the left at the top of the steep hill. In case of rain, participants are encouraged to letter signs in something more water-resistant than tempra; some signs may be availabe there.

Re: Biden Wins Democratic Primary
From: Valley Oak     
Posted: April 8, 2020, 8:14 pm
Hopefully, Biden will be replaced at the Democratic Party convention with someone who can finish a sentence, is not in an advanced and obvious stage of senility, and also not Trump's equal in sexually assaulting women. Biden was used to get rid of Bernie and they succeeded. Obama's role behind the scenes was crucial in Biden's Super Tuesday victory. Without Obama's interference, Sanders probably would have won Super Tuesday.

I don't know who the Democratic Party establishment is going to pick as their new presidential nominee, not with certainty. That said, Kamala Harris is a strong possibility either as the new nominee or the VP. I have even less of an idea who will be the other person on the ticket but they will probably "balance" the ticket with a White male.

...And the Trumpsters will bring up Ukraine as well, which is a legitimate concern of political corruption on the part of the Bidens. Republicans will take all of these devastating weaknesses that Biden sports and hit him over the head, nonstop, everyday, until Trump is re-elected. Biden is Trump's best chance for a 2nd term.

Re: Poem for the day from Larry Robinson
From: Larry Robinson  WaccoBB Poet Laureate  
Posted: April 9, 2020, 1:06 pm

Then you shall take some of the blood, and put it on the door posts and the lintels of the houses . . .
and when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and no plague shall fall upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
- Exodus 12: 7 & 13

They thought they were safe
that spring night; when they daubed
the doorways with sacrificial blood.
To be sure, the angel of death
passed them over, but for what?
Forty years in the desert
without a home, without a bed,
following new laws to an unknown land.
Easier to have died in Egypt
or stayed there a slave, pretending
there was safety in the old familiar.

But the promise, from those first
naked days outside the garden,
is that there is no safety,
only the terrible blessing
of the journey. You were born
through a doorway marked in blood.
We are, all of us, passed over,
brushed in the night by terrible wings.

Ask that fierce presence,
whose imagination you hold.
God did not promise that we shall live,
but that we might, at last, glimpse the stars,
brilliant in the desert sky.

- Lynn Ungar
