    Never Let The Truth Get In The Way Of A Good Story
    Attr: Mark Twain

    Russia’s Pravda had a “60% rule”.
    60% of the news had to be true, in order for soviet citizens to believe the rest of the propaganda.

    Much of the western press now appears to have a 10% rule, making it completely unreliable as a source of accurate information.

    Even Edgar Allan Poe’s “Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” is wildly optimistic today

    Be very afraid of climate change and all of the maladies it COULD bring.
    But they seem to be so excited about reusable menstrual products with the possibility of toxic shock syndrome. Misogynists!
    Do these idiots ever appreciate their standsrd of living compared to the pre-industrial or even early industrial ages? History began with their consciousness. My great grandparents struggled for daily survival and enjoyed none of the security and leisure we enjoy today. I am old enough to remember outhouses, wood stoves, pumps/ wells and ice boxes. And I even picked cotton. No thanks

    Yes there is.

    Both have a high number of narcisstic psychopaths who know very well what they are expected to say,
    and will use any crisis to push their agenda.

    There is no way the new virus will be used to push AGW even if it turns out
    that the virus is a scientifically modified one that leaked by coincidence.
    And the more victims there are the more effective the propaganda will be
    if AGW is mentioned permanently with the outbreak and victims.

    Gee, now the climate terrorists will start calling the varying weather “sicklycal”!,

  5. Linda says:

    Well it seems helpful to know who holds the patent on a new virus. Check out And see who’s stock is going up in the rush to create vaccines. It’s an interesting trail.

  6. Tyrannosaurus Rex says:

    As Upton Sinclair once said, “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on him not understanding it.” He may have been a socialist, but he like Orwell was completely aware that the belief was completely exploitable by opportunists. Speaking of self-aware socialists, you should check out Alfred Russel Wallace, the forgotten father of evolution. He was quite an interesting guy. Before any of you make any replays, let me make this clear I’m a global capitalist as supported by empirical evidence.

  7. S.K. Dodsland says:

    Even Canadians believe the CBC (Communist Broadcasting Corp.) has zero credibility on climate science.

    One must remember that the Liberal Party of Canada bought off CBC with taxpayer money and CBC produces nothing but propaganda to support the Liberal’s environmental policies which include a carbon tax and a goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

  8. Peter Carroll says:

    I’m still waiting for the pandemics of tropical diseases, that will result from global warming as prophesied by Al Gore.

  9. Martin says:

    “One of the reasons the human and animal worlds are bumping up against each other is a changing climate.”

    The absurdity of this is simply astounding. One graph demolishes this position without another word.

  10. Gamecock says:

    ‘We still don’t know where the 2019 novel coronavirus came from.’

    China. Dumbass.

  11. rah says:

    Anymore it is a question of if there is a connection between journalists and the truth on about any subject matter.

  12. George Davidson says:

    The CBC is a federal funded media group that promote climate alarmists theories so our government can charge carbon taxes

  13. Stuart London says:

    Climate change policy itself is likely to lead to increased morbidity and mortality from common infectious diseases such as respiratory tract infections. It is already well established that there is an increased rate of deaths from respiratory disease during cold periods and during periods when energy is more expensive. Older people are particularly at risk because they tend to have limited incomes, carry a greater burden of pre-existing illness, and tend to restrict their use of heating rather than running into fuel debt. Hence, increases in energy prices lead to increased mortality in vulnerable populations such as the elderly and the poor, particularly in cold periods. Measures to mitigate this risk, including winter fuel subsidies for vulnerable groups and advice to wrap up warmly, are only partially effective. All of this is well known to health rsearchers, policy advisors, and presumably politicians.

  14. Independent George says:

    Why do tgese diseases always come from China?

  15. tom0mason says:

    How I long for those halcyon days when reporters would often just dispassionately report the news. I do not like to listen and read these current batch nutjobs who feel it is their calling to continuously and emotively editorialize news to some leftwing stupidity.

    Could a company somewhere in the world please just report the news — complete, factual, and without all this unneeded passion.

    P.S. If people who are said to be relatively unfeeling about others are described as antisocial or even sociopathic, what are the over-emotional types called — hysterical? And why is one group apparently preferred over the other?

  16. Kent Clizbe says:

    “Why do tgese diseases always come from China?”

    Very simple. It’s their methods and techniques of raising livestock:

    “How to brew flu: Put ducks, people and pigs together

    “All around southern China, people have the same unusually close contact with animals — on tiny farms, in crowded village markets, and at sprawling big city bazaars that sell live birds and pigs directly to consumers.

    “Experts on infectious disease believe this close contact has a deadly impact in the United States and around the world”

    I don’t know why I still read CBC news but I do, and saw this article and thought I hope Tony posts on this. Thanks for doing so.
