I'm expecting one of the largest mainstream media pivots in history in 2022, catalyzed by capitalism and common sense.
The fact is it's Alex Jones who's been saying these things for years and was the one who awakened Joe. A lot of commentators still don't have the balls to acknowledge that fact.
It dawned on me that this was fantastic timing on Rogan and Malone’s part, even if it was not intentional. They dropped this right at the doorstep of the New Years media black hole. Just like anything on Netflix the week of March 15th, 2020… the whole world got the most relevant interview of the year right when it wasn’t competing with any other major events or news coverage. Brilliant.
A couple of comments: 1) Brilliant article; 2) You may not have seen this too, but one of the fascinating results from the JRE Malone interview was that Malone mentioned to Rogan that he (Malone) was on Gettr which Rogan (surprisingly to me) hadn't heard of yet. Virtually the next day, Rogan announced he was getting on Gettr (and said it was because - I paraphrase - Twitter was getting increasingly insane) which has started to trigger the "great resignation" from Twitter and migration to Gettr. That's also how powerful Rogan's influence is. He may just bring down Twitter or at least turn it into the new MySpace. 3) Lastly, in the interests of honest dialogue, the only fault I find with your article is that Malone specifically did NOT say that India has achieved success with Ivermectin. He said that Uttar Pradesh has essentially eradicated covid and apparently done so with early treatment protocols. We all suspect Ivermectin is part of what they've used, but Malone did say we don't actually know since the Indian government is refusing to disclose what's in the treatment they are giving out. Which, of course, is truly bizarre. He mentioned the refusal to disclose came directly after the Indian premier met with Biden, but doesn't know if that is cause and effect. Thing I love about Malone and scientists like him is that - unlike the crazy people pushing a mainstream narrative - he is VERY careful about acknowledging what he/we know and don't know.
You are a great writer. However, I think the media is already being propped up by the oligarchs in the background pulling all the strings. I don't even think it *matters* anymore if CNN ever turns a profit. The whole purpose of CNN or the Washington Post is to disseminate propaganda. That itself has value to the people willing to finance it.
The mainstream media is *not* subject to the forces of free market capitalism. It's at best a tool of some oligarchs that stand to profit both financially and politically from an endless crisis.
It will continue to be propped up, hell even bailed out by the government if need be, or will just be financed in not-so-secret directly by Pharma and Hedge Funds. It is a whore and its mouth and lips are for hire.
I had Covid a year and a half ago. I have natural immunity. The schools mandated the vax for my 8 year old grandchild. Despite my warnings, her parents vaxed her. Now the entire school has Covid and all the families have it. Even my wife. My natural immunity protected me and out of all of them, I didn't catch it. My surgeon sister and her husband, an M.D. were shocked. Over something I learned in 6th grade. Don't listen to the AMA or any of the experts, natural immunity works and keeps on working, unlike the vaccines.
Great post. Corporate Media won't 'change' as you mention - but they'll just stop the ridiculous fearmongering gradually, and when people call them out on it, they'll simply ignore it.
They've never admitted wrongdoing, or perpetuating a Narrative, and they won't start now. The fact that they're financed by billionaires (Bezos, Slim et al.) not only vaporizes the profit motive, it allows them to feed their millions of Karens and Useful Idiots the same message.
Like the schoolyard bully who eventually realizes that no one is afraid of him, the Corporate Media will just wait for the next Narrative to be given to them from on high and run with it. It's up to us Proles do decide if we follow it or not. Who follows and who doesn't? This is the balkanization of the USA that proceeds apace.
Ivermectin & hyroxchloroquine has been conclusively shown to be of benefit to Covid patients.
Read about it here:
If you remember back five or six months you will recall that covid was getting out of control in INDIA.
Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths were sky-rocketing.
The authorities in the state of UTTAR PRADESH (200 million people) decided to provide covid-packs containing ivermectin, an oxygen meter, aspirin, and vitamins, for all 200 million people. The packs cost 2 or 3 dollars each. A few weeks later the disease had essentially disappeared (and has not come back). At that point only about 20% of the population had been vaccinated.
THE GOVERNMENT IS LITERALLY KILLING YOU by not allowing hyroxchloroquine & ivermectin.
First Dr. Peter McCullough on Dec 15th and then followed up w Dr. Malone. Incredible timing - earth shattering and long overdue. I agree that MSM is going to have to pivot in order to survive however I dont think (and I pray) that they will be able to do it quick and complete enough to salvage themselves. Perhaps a few - but I think a wholesale flush down the toilet coming. As a recent subscriber I look forward to sprinkling whatever $$$ I can on independent thinking while lobbying my condo board to pull the plug on building group cable. These effers need to be cut off. Thanks QTR and Happy New Year.
Great points all around but one key thing to revise in the piece, and as you admit once, these outlets aren't mainstream anymore. Now is a great time to adjust the terminology and note that they are in fact aligned with corporate interests and don't represent the mainstream, as Michael Malice coined, just plainly the "Corporate Press" is a more accurate moniker.
I knew Rogan would crack this thing wide open when he did the McCullough interview.
Malone has been a steady antidote to the mainstream news and its more sinister instrument, the ever-winding crawl. What a ravaging task to discredit him and so many others. In the wake of Malone's rich argument and Rogan's deft questioning, the messages of the chryon echo like the paper slip called a fortune, unfurled from a cookie you get for free.
I got three words... "not gonna happen". Corporate media (CIA-owned and funded) is not about to change. They have a New World Order to build, and they need their propaganda to get it done.
Well said. I add that CNN and Rogan went head to head on credibility when Sanjay Gupta from CNN went on Rogan's podcast. I think Rogan's win on credibility over the horsedewormer thing was when the media crown was Rogan's. Just like CNN won cable in the 80's, Rogan's newer long form media is the future and the rest of MSM just woke up to it after the Dr. Malone podcast.
I’m not sure the main stream media is in the business to make money. All the main stream media has been bought by the military/industrial/pharmaceutical complex. The media is more important as psychological manipulation tool so running it at a loss is just part of the cost of doing business for the complex. That said, I hope your predication is true, I am so sick and tired of the whole thing.
You're a lot more optimistic than me. The World Economic Forum ran a simulation of a major cyberattack in 2021 I believe under the pretext of preventing the crash of the global financial system. I doubt this was their real intention. The coronavirus scamdemic also appeared shortly after they had a pandemic rehearsal for Covid.
I suspect that when the elites realize they're on the verge of losing their information war, they will use a false flag cyber attack as an excuse to shut out westerner's access to entire top level domains and certain blocks of ip addresses to stop the cyber attack. "Coincidentally" the web domains and ips impacted will be alternative news websites and other undersirable websites.
2020 and 2021 was consumed by people arguing about vaccinations, lockdowns, masks, government overreach etc. Some people denied COVID-19's seriousness, which is stupid, because it does harm and kill many in the majority of the population who have only 5 to 25 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D when they need at least 50 ng/mL for their immune systems to be able to work properly.
What has been missing from the full-scale, everyone-knows-about-it and is continually-arguing-and-bickering-about-it public awareness is that the great majority of people who are harmed and killed by COVID-19 would not be harmed or killed if their 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were 50ng/mL (125nmol/L) or more AND if they had immediate (no medical appointment) access to early treatments such as melatonin, zinc, ivermectin, zinc, vitamin C and others: https://c19early.com . This would suppress viral shedding and so reduce R0 below 1.0 - so the pandemic spread would be suppressed and those few people who were infected would rarely suffer serious harm.
A healthy intake of vitamin D3 is 0.125mg 5000 IU per day for 70 kg 154 lb bodyweight. However, this takes months to raise circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels, so for early treatment of the great majority of the population whose level is likely 10 to 20 ng/mL, there are only two methods of repleting this rapidly enough in the medical emergency of COVID-19. This should be done immediately upon diagnosis. The first is a single oral dose of calcifediol - the pharma name for 25-hydroxyvitmain D - for 70kg bodyweight. This goes straight into circulation and so raises 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels safely over 50ng/ml in 4 hours. Calcifediol is now available without prescription in the USA, but it is an Internet order arrangement and it makes no sense to wait for this if you don't already have some. 1mg is 100 of these small tablets - USD$33.33 - https://dvelopimmunity.com/products/vitamin-d .
If this is not available a single large (bolus) dose of vitamin D3 should be used, which will raise 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels over 50 ng/mL over 4 days or so as it is hydroxylated in the liver. Please see: https://nutritionmatters.substack.com/p/calcifediol-25-hydroxyvitamin-d-or and for all the background on vitamin D and the immune system: https://vitamindstopscovid.info .
In the last week or so vitamin D awareness began to ascend the ladder toward the full spotlight of global public awareness with Linda Benskin and Gruff Davies being interviewed by Bret Weinstein: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xfzsEc0CTo .
So far, governments and the mainstream media have gone out of their way to disparage nutrition and early treatments, due to their maniacal focus on vaccination as the sole protection which anyone can have before hospital treatment due to hypoxia. Even without knowledge of vitamin D, this is a crime against humanity.
I hope that in 2022 a proper awareness of the immune system's need for significantly higher 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels than most doctors recognise (20 or 30 ng/mL) will become a world-wide cause cause-celebre.
