At the end of March CBS News painted a dire picture from New York City this week in their coronavirus coverage. CBS aired a “terrifying” footage from a New York hospital.
Of course, that was fake news because they used a video from an Italian hospital.
There was no need to add that footage except to stoke panic.
Video comparison from the two news outlets.
They did answer a few days later and confirmed that it was an editor’s mistake!
But that wasn’t enough they now try to creat panic using children.
They were caught using a photo from 2016 in Ukraine to describe a baby suffering from Kawasaki disease linked to coronavirus.
Here is the 2016 photo describing an infant suffering from the Coxsackie virus.
And here is the same image used by CBS to describe a rare condition in children linked to the coronavirus.
This is really strange time. A time where thousand of American patriots were removed from social media platforms for allegedly spreading “fake news”.
But what about the big mainstream media corporations?
FCC can only regulate individual broadcasting stations- they don’t regulate Media companies.
They are literally not regulated by anybody. Remember the Trayvon Martin media blitz where CBS was caught doctoring the 911 call to make it look like Zimmerman was racist? They got caught red-handed and smeared a guy all over the news and there were no consequences.
I hope that this time they will be punished at least by the American citizens for spreading this kind of news.
