The so-called mainstream media have been terrible during the entirety of the Wuhan virus.
Their fear-mongering has led to devastating consequences for over 320 million Americans.
But one disturbing poll says big media’s coronavirus propaganda is working.
The Wuhan virus has killed approximately 150,000 Americans and as tragic as that is, the long-term damage could be even more devastating.
Over 40 million Americans are out of work and thousands of small businesses have been permanently destroyed.
Deaths of despair are spiking, while other neglected health issues and pathogens are wreaking havoc without much attention being paid.
All of this suffering is being prolonged by the pro-lockdown Democrats and their allies in the corporate press who have the entire country in a vise grip because of their hatred of Donald Trump.
They’re willing to drag out the misery until after the election if it means getting rid of Trump.
Meanwhile, the actual numbers on the virus show that the death rate and number of hospitalizations are decreasing.
But the unrelenting propaganda campaign from the press has sadly been working.
According to the research firm Kekst CNC, a majority of Americans believe that 30 million people—9% of the population—have died from the virus.
The survey said:
“Despite relatively low incidence rates compared to earlier in the pandemic in most countries (with the exception of the U.S.), people significantly over-estimate the spread and fatality rate of the disease. In Sweden and the UK for example, the public think 6-7% of people have died from coronavirus – around one hundred times the actual death rate based on official figures.”
People in the United States believe that the coronavirus is 225 times more deadly than it actually is.
The survey also showed that Americans think 20% of the population has had the virus.
That would be well over 60 million people, more than 20 times the number of actual confirmed cases.
This is a clear sign that the media’s fear-mongering over the virus is effective.
It’s the only way the pro-lockdown contingent can justify indefinitely shutting down the country for a virus with a 99.8% survival rate.
Also, the median age of death for the virus is 81, meaning it’s largely attacking the elderly, who can still be protected without holding the country hostage.
That’s how far the derangement has gone.
It makes matters worse when the media are invested in encouraging the nationwide protesting, rioting, and looting that’s gone on over the past two months.
The country is being held hostage because the Democrats and the Never-Trumpers are furious that Hillary Clinton didn’t win in 2016.
This is their punishment, and hundreds of millions of Americans are being forced to suffer for their wrath.
