(JustPatriots.com)- Last week, researchers at Johns Hopkins University released a study that outlines just how ineffective lockdown policies were in preventing COVID deaths. But the report is getting very little attention from the American corporate news media.
According to Grabien, all three major networks along with MSNBC and CNN have ignored the Johns Hopkins study entirely. So too have major print outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press, Reuters, USA Today, Axios, and Politico.
Gosh. What a shock.
These same outlets spent the last two years lighting their hair on fire over Republican governors ending lockdowns. The last thing they want is to report on a study that proves those Republican governors were right and the “experts” the media celebrated were wrong.
The researchers analyzed the effects of school shutdowns, business closures, and mask mandates on COVID-19 deaths. And according to their analysis, lockdowns had “little to no public health effects.” Instead, all these lockdowns did was impose “enormous economic and social costs” to the areas where they were adopted.
The study also confirmed what many had warned all along. Forcing people to “shelter-in-place” increased the likelihood of family members infecting each other with a higher viral load causing more severe illness.
Shelter-in-place orders also limited how much access people had to safer outdoor spaces like beaches and parks while pushing them indoors where they were more likely to contract the virus.
The researchers concluded that “lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”
In other words, everything the media and the “experts” had been promoting for 24 months was the wrong way to go.
There is no way these outlets that spent two years being lockdown cheerleaders are going to highlight a study that all but proves them wrong.
Being the American corporate news media means never having to say “we made a mistake.”
They never acknowledged the lie of Russian collusion and the phony dossier. And they will never admit they were wrong about lockdowns.
