Journalists are afraid of snake oil cures. So the MSM enterprises they work for have a way of legally staying in the profitable zone of storytelling without appearing too disingenuous. There are some rules to journalism in the MSM. It is that the MSM has a role in the stability-keeping of communities, by meting out permissible information while suppressing non-permissible information.
Remember the disclaimer, “For informational and entertainment purposes only, this product is not […]”
1. Find a sensational story, (i.e., ivermectin use). Keep it off the mainstream as long as you can by acting like it does not exist.
2. If you sense that the story of ivermectin use is leaking, bring it to your boss’s attention that other media competitors, will mimic your breaking story, except that it will sell the product if reporting is favorable…unless bias is maintained so that ivermectin is presented as a wee, bothersome, colloquial bland story and nothing else, so steer back to mainstream.
3. Get approval and paycheck to go cover the story so that boss and media Enterprise will gain monetarily, but appear allof and distant from such an absurd notion as popularizing use of ivermectin.
4. Interview first medical and government employees, especially policy-writing ones, making only token mention of wayward cures and then return to the support of the official medical choices that are approved.
5. Only mention in the final story people who have tried undocumented ivermectin use, in a way that is shocking and provocative, then use counterpoint so that the reader or listener will have one viewpoint, that of the “community”.
6. Make it the point of the story that the press is really doing the public a big service by making the dangers of the unknown only something to avoid, training the loyal reader or listener to always consult, for guidance, articles the press writes.
7. Never do research or interviews to tell stories or to support actions that will start a movement, or that will make a movement that is already gaining momentum have any connection to your telling of the story.
8. Allow the story to be “ironclad” to the legal staff of the press enterprise you are working for, so that you will pass the test of being a reporter that profits your company.
9. Make your story susceptible to the phenomenon of ” it was true at that time, according to the information you gathered (be sure not to gather information that might make you overly accountable).
10. Write or broadcast in a style that makes human nature seem quizzical, but that news media can always present a possible way for the reader or listener to digest the story and feel relieved, as that is the purpose of media – to protect you from unnecessary and unwanted dissenting responses.

So just throw all those guidelines out for a moment, and read the following, unbiased.
Each paragraph between spaces is from a different person. These are excerpts from among nearly 1,500 comments and replies to a reporter who showed a video (of the same reporter) tasting ivermectin paste.
– – – – –
Responses are to an anonymous reporter’s video. Many viewers were already ahead of this reporter, having tried ivermectin in people version, FDA approved pill form, or as a veterinary FDA approved paste, either on their skin, for scabies or rosacea, or as an ingested method. Some had used ivermectin for coronavirus.

“I’m a PhD scientist and now educator and solar installer, lived off grid for over 10 years after my former employer eliminated my position for refusing to lie. I just took my second dose of the same stuff carried by xxxxx here in xx, based on researching the data carefully and figuring it is not going to have nasty additives that could harm me because of a few reasons: they know this is used by many thousands of customers, a significant proportion of which have children, and, well, accidental consumption is just about guaranteed. Why risk lawsuits for something that is over the counter? Also, I read through some poison control center published data and nothing seemed to indicate any serious harm. The biggest risk is likely just consuming too much (like someone hears about it and just eats the entire 1250 lb dose at once) but even then I didn’t find evidence of serious risk. I appreciate that one of the commenters called a manufacturer and it seems like they tacitly agreed, though given our sue crazy culture I can understand their cautious behavior in giving any indication that it is fine. In any case call your reps folks! I interned in xx as a national scholar a few years as a student, and while some are clearly influenced by dollars alone many still pay very close attention when people start ringing them about how votes will depend on action for collective responsibility. The evidence supporting the use of ivermectin to end the lockdowns is looking solid, and lets remember that every generation has to occasionally show the legislators who’s boss. Speak up and letters mailed help too! Otherwise it’s our apathy at issue. Just my two cents. Again thanks for posting this video, you sir deserve some respect.”

Have you ever been on ‘Fear Factor’, ‘Survivor’ , ‘Naked and Afraid’ or other reality shows where participants ingest things to win a game or to actually survive for the duration of the game?
What about tasting ivermectin as a game…where the participants taste food items and other products that farm and ranch animals consume? Here it is.
The reporter who tasted ivermectin had a large audience who watched a real-world experience live. They reacted as individuals, each having to decide for themselves, without the manipulation of the “Investigative Reporter” employed by a media enterprise.

Correction in “3.” above – not “allof”…aloof.
This article was NOT “for entertainment purposes only”.
I was quite serious in making the case to listen to people who are self-medicating with ivermectin with a serious tone of journalism without condemnation…and to treat their testimonials as RWEs…real world experiences. Litigation can be put on hold for compassionate care to take precedence.
If this offends sensibilities, consider what it would be like to have comorbidities and other health warnings, and have no preventative care for COVID-19 because the established medical world can’t speak for fear of being sued. The vaccine makers also being exempt from being sued, I could continue the compassionate care movement and play the game of taste what the farm and ranch animals are ingesting…
“For entertainment purposes only” would be a person handing another person a drug known to be efficacious and safe for COVID-19 prophylaxis and recovery, and claim that we were playing a game.

MSM corporation Twitter blocks account of Dr. Vladimir Zelenko
Recently, Twitter saw fit to remove the account of Doctor Vladimir Zelenko, a well-established and internationally published medical doctor out of upstate New York, because of his repeated postings about the practices he and other doctors have been using […]
He developed what he has labeled the Zelenko Covid-19 Protocols which has as its centerpiece, but not exclusive piece, the combined use of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Zinc as a means by which a person can both help to prevent or mitigate the contraction of Covid-19, or can actually treat the disease once it has been diagnosed. Both protocols can be viewed and downloaded from his website […]
“We have a Second Amendment to protect us from a tyrannical government,” Zelenko says. “We need a sort of ‘Medical Second Amendment’ to help people take responsibility to protect their own lives and not submit to a tyrannical government when it comes to matters of their own health.”
Zelenko says that the substitutes for HCQ that can work effectively with Zinc are natural supplements that do not require a doctor’s prescription. “Both are easily obtained and while they do not work as well as does HCQ, you don’t go to war with the army you wish you had, you go to war with the army you actually have.” Either Quercetin or Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) he states are alternatives for HCQ […]
Dr. Zelenko’s full protocols for both moderate and high-risk patients can be found on his website […]
You can find Dr. Zelenko’s detailed Covid-19 information at http://www.VladimirZelenkomd.com.
