I am going to make this into a video short for YouTube. I want your feedback!
1- We admitted that we were corporate Newsaholics and that our bias had become unmanageable.
2- Came to believe that a power greater than bias - called critical thinking - could restore us to sanity.
3- Made a decision to turn over our intentional blatant propaganda and less obvious lazy echo chambers to the care of critical thinking.
4- Made a searching and fearless inventory of the fake news we've produced.
5- Admitted to Twitter, to ourselves, and to Joe Rogan the exact nature of our disinformation, a word we commonly save for those questioning establishment narratives but rarely use for ourselves.
6- Were entirely ready to release our defects of news judgment which include but aren't limited to the following: group think, hubris, moral crusading, identitarianism, lack of time and resources, fear of independent journalism, post-Trump derangement syndrome, character defamation of outsiders, unquestioning trust of bureaucratic sources, regurgitating wires, and basic unresearched stupidity.
7- Humbly returned to a teleprompter, website or social media platform to see where we've removed our shortcomings without alerting anyone so as to paint an illusion that we are trustworthy when in fact we regularly make mistakes.
8- Made a list of persons, issues, and freedoms we've harmed - and became willing to make amends to them all.
9- Made direct amends to such people, issues and freedoms - especially those we've mislabeled conspiracy theorist, misinformation, or extremist in an effort to use our corporate power to silence others.
10- Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted that we repeat the false presumptions of our peers because it's safer than getting kicked off YouTube for telling the truth.
11- Sought through critical thinking to improve our capacity for truth wherever it may lead, seeking knowledge and the fearlessness to report it, even if that means questioning our archetypal public health patriarch, Dr Fauci.
12- Having had an awakening as the result of critical thinking encouraged by historic public distrust in our industry, we tried to carry this message to other corporate TV Newsaholics, and to practice these principles even if the New York Times writes a smear piece.
Here is another clip of my chat with Dr. Robert Malone, focusing on what really happened with the "no" vote related to the FDA and a recommended 3rd booster for Covid. We also discuss vaccine obsession among science and medical professionals to the detriment of early treatment. This talk is being uploaded in chunks because Brandy, the nurse, had significant issues with her wifi and I have had to edit around the breaks. She is not in this but tried to pop in multiple times, unsuccessfully.
A recent internal presentation sent around a Florida hospital system shows that 45% of staff has reported not getting any Covid vaccine. Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology. Brandy is a hospice nurse not affiliated with this hospital who is choosing not to get vaccinated for Covid.
I am trying out a new idea: Saturday livestreams to reflect on the week before and discuss the week ahead, and to hear from you about what you would like to see covered. So, bring your ideas and become a member of my editorial board. Also today you get to meet our new puppy!!
Here are the screenshots I shared in my video with Doug McKenty, showing how a VA hospital is telling doctors they’ll be monitored if they prescribe ivermectin. If you haven’t seen that, our entire talk is here on Locals but the clip of this section is now live on YouTube in case you just want to see that part.
