    So he was promoting all these fake wars for the military industrial complex without ever getting to the conclusion that they were fake
    and was therefore rewarded with a job at the pharmaceutical industrial complex to promote internal genetic wars.

    I guess he is as qualified for the job as Hunter Biden was for Burisma.

    Big Pharma and Corporate Media are natural business partners, as the former spends tens of billions of dollars a year on advertising through the latter.
    No wonder Corporate Media are eager to obey and follow the “guidance” from Big Pharma companies, who also provide over half of the FDA’s research budget.

    Fear sells, and Corporate Media knows it better than anyone else, so they stoke COVID fear any way they can, and support any political move that makes people more fearful and obedient.

    In this context, it’s worth mentioning the Big Pharma also spends about a quarter of a billion dollars annually on (official) lobbying:

    Big Pharma have excellent business relationships with doctors, hospitals, and healthcare providers, who also have considerable political clout.

    All the above mentioned have contributed to the creation of the COVID19 panic pandemic, and all have greatly befitted from it.
