Surgeon General To Spend Time Going After Chinese Coronavirus “Misinformation”

Seems like a good use of his time

Surgeon general launches effort to get to the bottom of Covid-19 misinformation

The office of US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a request Thursday for information surrounding health misinformation, seeking input and data from tech companies, health care providers and community organizations.

The request seeks to understand the scope and impact of misinformation on Covid-19 — especially when it comes to health care and people’s willingness to get vaccinated.

“Misinformation has had a profound impact on Covid-19 and our response,” Murthy told CNN. “Studies have demonstrated that the vast majority of the American public either believes common myths about Covid-19 or thinks those myths might be true. And many of those include myths around the Covid-19 vaccine, so we’ve seen firsthand how misinformation is harming people’s health when it comes to Covid.”

This marks the first time the administration has called on tech companies to share certain data publicly, including data on the major sources of misinformation, how widespread it is and who may have been targeted more than others.

So, what, he’s going to use the power of government to data-mine posts and tweets and such? When COVID is supposedly almost over? Maybe he should be asking why some politicians and celebs wear their mask sometime and not at other times. Why Biden wears it outside. Why he sometimes wears it inside and not at others. Why Jen Psaki always takes hers off to speak to people.

The focus has been on reaching out to tech companies with the broadest reach and use, Murthy said, and he wants them to be more transparent and open about sharing data with the public.

“We’ll be looking forward to whatever information they have to share. We’re certainly approaching this with an open mind,” he said. “Many of the new technology platforms have also been talking about solutions that they are trying to implement, but what we want to understand is what data do they have on whether these solutions are actually working or not.”

And what will he do with this information? It’s not all concerning that the government will be taking names of people they believe are engaged in Wrongthink, right?

“Health misinformation is making the jobs of health care workers much harder at a time where our health care work force is strained,” he said. “I hear from health care workers that they are battling Covid in the hospitals during the day, and they’re going home and battling health misinformation at night.”

Ultimately, the information will be shared with the public and used to steer responses to future public health emergencies.

You are not allowed to have your own thoughts, Comrades. Anyway, can we start with the misinformation that cloth and surgical masks actually work? If they did, we wouldn’t have had the Delta and Omicron spikes. The government surely didn’t lie about herd immunity. And they didn’t give us misinformation that the vaccines would stop most people from getting COVID. And they certainly didn’t lie about the number of people who were dying from COVID and not with COVID, right? Or use dated statistics? Nor hide that the NIH was funding gain of function with coronaviruses in China, right? What other lies, er, sorry, disinformation has the government told us?

    A guest on Joe Rogan said that a vast majority of people dying of covid in Britain were fully vaccinated.

    Reuters who is led by a board member of PFIZER jumped all over this.

    They rant and they rave and then point out deep in the fact check article that most of England is vaccinated and people are dying of COVID and so in fact the VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE DYING are FULLY VACCINATED after Reuters protects their Big Pharma Buddy PFIZER rather than just leading with this in the beginning.

    Reuters even gives the numbers which shows that some 70 percent of those dying are fully vaccinated because so many are indeed vaccinated in the first place.

    You cannot trust any news outlet, any government or any politician to tell you the truth without spinning it into a lie or the truth depending on their agenda.

    So I have stopped listening to them. In fact the Ukraine war has shown repeatedly Translators crying as they traslate the horrors of the war. Even though the speaker is calm and collected. Its all about emotion to drive the world to the brink of war.

    Who gives a shit screams the MSM. We are raking in the dough and saving our jobs.

      You nailed it Facts Matter. And all the lying idiot shitlibs that post their propaganda as comments here are the vanguard of the misinformation campaign for the benefit of creeps that brought us to this point. The entire country has gone to shit beginning Jan. 20, 2021 and not one leftist here has had even one point of disagreement with the illegal moron in the WH. This senile commie walks on water to them. Now he wants Americans to really suffer as he refuses to open up our natural resources to drilling, fracking and anything else to make us energy independent and secure. He is diabolical in his hate for America and the American people.

      Lets go Brandon, drive more businesses out and make more Americans poor and unemployed. How’s $10 gas sound? Meanwhile Ukraine is being bombed to hell and they still have their lights on. Wonder how? It ain’t pin wheels and mirrors I guarantee.

    The now ultra-leftist Democrats have done to American citizens en mass what wife beaters do to their spouses. They punched our faces repeatedly during their Covidian fad, punched the crap out of us with the complete destruction of our economy with shortages, unemployment, the devastation of small business and historically high inflation then promised, promised not to beat us again because they love us. Just like when the cops are coming for a wife beater, when the elections are approaching leftists they get all lovey-dovey toward their victims.

    Stand up to their abuse. Refute their lies. Vote straight Republican and end this disease called Democrats.

    Liberals- “Let’s see, what word can we use that doesn’t sound as bad as censorship”? “I’ve got an idea-how about we re-phrase it as misinformation? That way we’re doing the same thing but fooling the stupid people!”

      You got it JL. And the “fact-checkers” are the official liars of the left.
