Misinformation is the leading cause of death in the United States. It kills more people than guns, fentanyl, car accidents, cancer, and Hillary Clinton combined.
No, wait! It’s the leading cause of death in the world. Misinformation killed more people in the last year than natural disasters, starvation, malaria, terrorists, and Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan combined!
“What about COVID,” you ask. “I heard COVID killed like six-billion people are something. I also heard it was Donald Trump’s fault. He told people to inject bleach.”
Well, let’s look at the data.
Total Deaths From COVID: 6.26 Million
Total Deaths From Misinformation: More
Misinformation is defined as “false or inaccurate information, especially that which is spread deliberately in order to deceive.” It’s also defined as “truthful information that is often censored by corporate media to protect Joe Biden and keep Trump from getting re-elected.”
Yes, misinformation is slaughtering people left and right. Biden’s FDA Commissioner, Dr. Robert Califf, affirmed this ridiculous claim in a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Doctor Radio Reports.
“I have been telling Congress that misinformation is the leading cause of death now,” Califf said without a hint of irony in his voice. “We now have a life expectancy five years shorter than the average of high-income countries. And we’re in the negative spiral right now due mostly to common chronic disease, drug overdose, and gun violence, mental health being a very important part of the problem.”
“If you think about the common chronic diseases we’re talking about, good old fashioned heart disease, diabetes, obesity, this is driven by day to day habits that people have driven largely by the information they’re ingesting and not driven by the information they should be getting about the measures that are effective,” Califf continued without cracking a smile. “One, that we have a lot of control over is we now have generic medicines for most of this that are pretty inexpensive. A lot of people aren’t taking them. And so we gotta reach people with secondary prevention, but also make sure that we flood the airways and our personal interactions with positive, reliable, useful information.”
Yeah, still no credible connection there, chief.
Speaking of ‘misinformation,’ Biden’s new head of the “Dept of Disinformation,” Nina Jankowicz, has an idea to promote truth on social media: she wants “trustworthy and verified people” like her to be able to “add context” to other people’s tweets. Hammer and Nigel have that story in the clip below.
