September has barely begun, however I’m assured nobody will prime my Whiny Media McWhiner of the Month nominee. This diaper-wetting award winner actually takes the cake. With unhinged cowards just like the San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board editor Matthew Fleischer occupying lofty perches of affect, it’s no marvel public confidence in American newspaper and tv information has plunged to all-time lows, in keeping with the newest Gallup ballot.
First, some background: As proprietor Hearst Company brags, “The San Francisco Chronicle is the most important newspaper in Northern California” and “the second largest on the West Coast.” Sunday print circulation tops 211,000. Its web site reportedly reaches over 6 million customers throughout the nation every month. Fleischer holds an M.A. in journalism from New York College, labored as a “senior digital opinion editor” on the Los Angeles Occasions for six years, and wrote for an extended listing of mainstream publications earlier than touchdown within the Bay Space in April 2021.
For the previous two and a half years, Fleischer’s fear-mongering Chronicle editorial board hectored and harangued readers to belief the COVID science (translation: swallow each Massive Authorities, Massive Pharma and Massive Tech declare with out query or criticism). Fleischer and his colleagues backed the draconian lockdown insurance policies of San Francisco Mayor London Breed (which didn’t apply to her, after all, as she partied maskless at jazz golf equipment). The Chronicle editorial board was so excessive that it castigated serial control-freak lockdown hypocrite Gov. Gavin Newsom for not doing sufficient to stop sane individuals from getting on with their lives.
Fleischer’s opinion pages additionally pushed for indefinite indoor masking, advocated “making vaccination the value of admission to society,” and rallied the left-wing elitist pandemic mob in opposition to knowledgeable mother and father exercising their non secular liberty and medical autonomy. The newspaper crusaded for legislative efforts to outlaw private perception exemptions from vaccine mandates and to power each school-age youngster to undergo experimental jabs within the identify of public well being.
However similar to Mayor Breed, Gov. Newsom and all the opposite two-faced COVID tyrants who exempt themselves from the inflexible guidelines they’ve imposed on the hoi polloi, the Chronicle’s editorial web page editor believes the foundations and “the science” ought to be bent and ignored by the highly effective and the privileged when it fits them.
On Sunday, Fleischer printed a diatribe blasting medical professionals for not giving him Paxlovid drugs after he contracted COVID — although the specialists and authorities he so worships decided he “wasn’t technically eligible” as a result of he was “below 65 with none critical comorbidities.” The title of his whine-ditorial:
“Omicron lastly obtained me after two years of being a COVID hermit. Then, docs made it worse.”
Sure, he was a “COVID hermit,” cloistered in his Bay Space residence (median sale worth: $1.3 million) the place he admits he sat round, stuffed his face and gained “fifteen additional kilos.” Getting fatter “was value it to keep away from getting sick,” he claimed. So, he holed up in his “cave,” spurned the gymnasium (“no thanks,” he scoffed) and prevented “the workplace, indoor gatherings and eating places.”
That’s proper. He selected to keep away from recent air, train and daylight — efficient pure immune boosters, in keeping with a raft of peer-reviewed research. You recognize: Science. As a substitute, he obtained vaxxed and boosted, masked up and hunkered down, and nonetheless ended up with COVID after flying out to the East Coast this summer season. Whose fault is it? The subtitle of his gripe-fest is pure media megalomania:
“BA.5 simply wiped me out for 12 days. Why did docs let me get sick as an alternative of giving me Paxlovid?”
What a weenie. You recognize what I did when lockdown mania hit? I took accountability for my well being. Within the spring of 2020, whereas authorities goons shut down gyms and blocked off playgrounds and parks with crime tape, I took up pickleball (at present competing in tournaments at 4.0 combined doubles), lifted weights within the storage, ate wholesome, hiked Colorado trails and mountains, loaded up on nutritional vitamins and dietary supplements, and secured ivermectin (which The Institution Scientists are lastly acknowledging supplies prophylactic safety “related to reductions in COVID-19 an infection, hospitalization, and mortality charges.”)
Oh, and I refused — nonetheless to at the present time — to be a guinea pig for these Massive Pharma merchandise that got here out of corrupted COVID-19 vaccine scientific trials. I’ve had COVID as soon as whereas residing life to the fullest, jab-less and maskless, whereas the vaccine and lockdown haranguers endure reinfection after rebound after rebound, with or with out Paxlovid as their savior.
Regardless of there being no profit to him taking Paxlovid, Fleischer fumes that he ought to be allowed to disregard official public well being steerage and pop the drugs on demand as a result of, properly, as a result of!
Stubbornly clinging to Massive Pharma Voodoo, this nattering ninny is “hopeful the brand new omicron booster” will finish the pandemic. LOL. Meantime, all of us naturally wholesome, match and fearless residents who refuse to undergo the infinite drugs and profiteering injections that failed him miserably watch in each horror and amusement on the media meltdowns of reclusive basket instances. Cry tougher.
