Media Pushes Bogus Ivermectin Stories

Ivermectin has been all over the news the last few days. If you believe everything you read in the mainstream media, you’d believe that Rolling Stone along with many other media outlets are telling the truth. What “truth?”

That thousands of people around the country are investing the Ivermectin intended for animals, are overwhelming the hospitals as a result, and they are all going to die…because Trump or something!

Rolling Stone was first out of the gate with it’s Oklahoma Ivermectin load of horseshit. Below is what Rolling Stone still has as their tweet touting their story. 

Gunshot victims left waiting as horse dewormer overdoses overwhelm Oklahoma hospitals, doctor says

What’s also interesting about this bogus story, is the photo they use. One would think folks are lining up by the hundreds to try and get care before they keel over and die from being poisoned by horse dewormer…right? Except the photo they use is from an AP story in JANUARY showing folks lined up outside a church to get tested and vaccinated.

The “story” that Rolling Stone peddles isn’t much better.

This week, Dr. Jason McElyea told KFOR the overdoses are causing backlogs in rural hospitals, leaving both beds and ambulance services scarce.

“The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims were having hard times getting to facilities where they can get definitive care and be treated,” McElyea said.

“All of their ambulances are stuck at the hospital waiting for a bed to open so they can take the patient in and they don’t have any, that’s it,” said McElyea. “If there’s no ambulance to take the call, there’s no ambulance to come to the call.” 

So, reading between the lines here, the gist of Rolling Stone’s reporting is that A. Oklahoma has a massive gun violence problem that no one knew about, and B. Oklahoma is so backwards that most of the population is willingly poisoning themselves with the veterinary version of Ivermectin. A doctor told them so! 

And the media along with many pundits, especially those like Rachel Maddow and Shannon Watts breathlessly ran with this information, irresponsibly tweeting out the story to all their followers, who swallowed the info hook, line, and sinker. 

Meanwhile, over in Mississippi, stories ran – starting with the Associated Press – that 70% of the population of Mississippi has poisoned themselves. Except that only ONE person is in the hospital because of their personal idiotic choices.

At least one individual has been hospitalized in Mississippi after ingesting a drug intended for treating worms in livestock, the Mississippi State Department of Health revealed today. The medicine, ivermectin, is not approved for treating COVID-19.

MSDH later confirmed to Mississippi Free Press reporter Nick Judin that the person was hospitalized in the state for ivermectin toxicity, but it is not clear whether or not the new patient was a resident. MSDH did not reveal when the incident happened or the patient’s current condition.

Well, these bogus stories made the rounds in a split nano-second. The media jumped all over this ‘information’ with glee. And then, in a matter of a day, the stories started falling apart. BIGLY. 

The AP quietly issued a correction to the Mississippi story and hoped no one would notice, because shaming people away from Ivermectin is their favored narrative. 

Oh, so only 2% of the Mississippi population has questions about ivermectin, it’s uses, and if it is poisonous or not. That’s ….QUITE a difference from the original breathless 70% and they’re all gonna die! narrative. 

Now let’s get back to Rolling Stone. The publication is already on the hook for TWO bogus stories, shelling out millions of dollars because what they published concerning Duke Lacrosse and the UVA rape case. One would think they learned their lesson…right? Wrong. 

One of the hospitals specifically named by Rolling Stone issued a major correction, and others started following suit. So, does Rolling Stone retract their story? Nope, instead they publish an update and change the headline, which still infers the story is true and the hospital is lying!

What’s more, it’s been confirmed that that irresponsible doctor hasn’t worked within that hospital system for MONTHS.

But again, as Drew Holden shows here, all the usual suspects are running with this bogus story because narrative!

Here’s another reason why Rolling Stone likely issued an update instead of taking their bogus Ivermectin story down. Cue that dishonest hack named Fauci!

The media, Fauci, and many others are to blame for peddling disinformation and now bogus Ivermectin stories, all while hoping no one does their research and finds out that the scientists who created Ivermectin for HUMANS won a Nobel Prize for their work in 2015!!

They’ve been doing so for over 18 months now, and they don’t give a damn who it harms.
