Another Media Fail: Associated Press Misrepresents People Taking 'Livestock Medicine' to Battle C*VID by 68%
Our government doesn't want you doing anything to battle C*VID other than getting your v*cc*ne. That's it. Nothing else. And since our government doesn't want you to do anything else, that's what the mainstream media wants as well. The latest is when it comes to ivermectin. Ivermectin is a multifaceted drug of Nobel prize-honored distinction with indicated efficacy against C*VID-19. But it's not approved by unelected government bureaucrats (the CDC). It's also used, in a different concentrated form, to treat livestock such as horses. Since it's not the government's v*cc*ne, the media "reports" people using it as people taking horse dewormer or livestock medicine. In other words, the media lies.
Rolling Stone was caught lying. They wrote a story based on a single doctor's claims an Oklahoma hospital was overrun with people who took horse dewormer. Except, the hospital said it's not true. Now we see the Associated Press doesn't understand how numbers work. The AP was quick to report that in Mississippi, 70% of calls to poison control were of people who ingested the animal version of ivermectin. They've since corrected the story:
In an article published Aug. 23, 2021, about people taking livestock medicine to try to treat coronavirus, The Associated Press erroneously reported based on information provided by the Mississippi Department of Health that 70% of recent calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were from people who had ingested ivermectin to try to treat COVID-19. State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers said Wednesday the number of calls to poison control about ivermectin was about 2%. He said of the calls that were about ivermectin, 70% were by people who had ingested the veterinary version of the medicine.
So it's not 70% of calls from people who took animal medicine. It's 2% of people who were treated with ivermectin as a whole. That means out of all calls to Mississippi poison control, 98% were for something else that wasn't ivermectin. Then of the 2%, 70% of the calls were of people taking livestock medicine (allegedly). Which, if you're a people and your people doctor won't prescribe something for you, don't go to a veterinarian. They treat animals. You're a people. Okay? Okay.
In the olden days, reporters would double-check their math. They would see an astronomical number such as 70% of people taking horse dewormer and say to themselves, "Hey, this doesn't make sense!" Instead, reporters have an activist agenda and a confirmation bias to confirm. Mississippi is in the south. Mississippi voted for Trump. A reporter from the Associated Press saw an opportunity to attack southerners and/or Trump supporters, facts be damned!
The media is one of the least trustworthy institutions in America. Reporters don't understand why. All the lying and/or "accidental factual errors" might have something to do with it.
