BBC News Report Warning About “Fake News” Contains Fake News

By Paul Joseph Watson | Summit News | December 28, 2020

An alarmist BBC News report warning about the dangers of “fake news” contained a claim which was itself a glaring example of fake news.

The article, entitled ‘The casualties of this year’s viral conspiracy theories,’ ominously warned that conspiracy theories were “destroying relationships and endangering lives.”

Prime amongst them according to Marianna Spring, the BBC’s “specialist disinformation reporter,” were a “flurry of online falsehoods about coronavirus.”

“We catalogued mass poisonings and overdoses of hydroxychloroquine – a drug that world leaders like Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro falsely claimed cures or prevents COVID-19,” wrote Spring.

However, as LockdownSkeptics points out, the claim that hydroxychloroquine doesn’t cure or prevent COVID-19 or that it is a poison is itself completely fake news.

“I’m afraid that doesn’t pass the fact-checking test, Ms Spring. Over 200 studies have shown HCQ is an effective treatment for Covid. Trump and Bolsonaro may have exaggerated the preventative and curative properties of HCQ, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely ineffective and anyone taking it is likely to poison themselves. On the contrary, it’s almost certainly no more dangerous than any of the Covid vaccines.”

Despite the efficacy of the drug, hydroxychloroquine has been demonized by the mainstream media from the beginning, partly as a way of preventing Trump from claiming success in fighting COVID and partly because it would have reduced the urgency for a vaccine, which is set to be used as a reason to restrict people’s mobility and travel rights.

  1. Why is it that, “Paranoids are the only ones who notice anything any more”?…..(Broyard Anatole)

    Don’t forget that, The BBC were instrumental in convincing the World that Saddam had “Weapons of Mass Destruction” several years ago. The BBC has been corrupted, like the rest of the Western MSM, and cannot be trusted.

    • British Comedy is still the best comedy that there is though, so the BBC still has its place……in keeping us entertained, and not noticing what is REALLY going on in the World……
