It has been revealed that Fox News and Newsmax were two of the media entities that took federal money to push COVID-19 vaccines on their audiences.
TheBlaze filed a FOIA that discovered the following:
“HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations. These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.”
Newsmax’s founder Christopher Ruddy even wrote a groveling op/ed calling for people to submit to the vax.
“At Newsmax, we have strongly advocated for the public to be vaccinated. The many medical experts who have appeared on our network have been near unanimous in support of the vaccine,” Ruddy said. “I myself have gotten the Pfizer vaccine. There’s no question in my mind, countless lives would have been saved if the vaccine was available earlier.”
Emerald Robinson, who was dismissed from Newsmax for her unabashed right-wing beliefs, believes that this news vindicates her.
We have just lived through the most extensive propaganda campaign in the history of the world and it was paid for with taxpayer dollars. You paid for it. I paid for it. We will probably never know how much money was spent because, according to a source familiar with the FOIAs, the Biden Administration won’t release the amounts under their “trade secrets” exemption,” Robinson wrote.
“I’ve been telling people for the last two years that, when the truth comes out about the deadly COVID vaccines, it will topple the American corporate media,” she added. “Now you know what I was talking about.”
Fox News and Newsmax are classic controlled opposition. They are a big reason why the Republicans always lose to Democrats, even when they are supposedly winning. President Trump has been an antidote to them, but organizations like Fox News and Newsmax must be deposed before the right-wing can truly thrive.
One (of MANY!) of the reasons I no longer watch ANY news on TV anymore!! (In fact, I gave away all my TV sets several years ago and make my own programming on my trusty desktop with its easy-to-read & see monitor!!)
