NYTimes Retracts Blatant Lie About Children Covid Hospitalizations

Everyone knows by now, at least on a theoretical level, that the mainstream media often just blatantly lies.

Muslims know this better than most because we have been the victims of media lies for the better part of the past 100 years (or even 300 years, if you include the history of orientalism).

But every now and then, it is good to remind ourselves of the level of lying that even the most “respected” and “trusted” news outlets are willing to propagate.

In an article titled “New York Times Retracts Massive Exaggeration of Children Hospitalized by COVID-19” The Hill reports:

“In an article published by New York Times reporter Apoorva Mandavilli on Wednesday, Times readers were told that “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began.”

“A correction issued on Thursday notes that the correct number is 63,000 between August 2020 and October 2021, which means Mandavilli exaggerated the number of child hospitalizations by 837,000 cases. Approximately 500 American children have eventually died from the disease. The exaggeration was included in a report on the debate surrounding whether and how to vaccinate children.”

So, NYTimes reported 900K child hospitalizations. The real number: 63K children hospitalized.

Now, let’s assume that these are real cases of life threatening Covid that these children had and not just an asymptomatic positive PCR test (which is probably the reality). Example: A child goes to the hospital for a broken leg, he gets the required Covid test, it comes back positive even though he has zero symptoms, and voila! He becomes just another scary “child Covid hospitalization.” That’s probably the reality behind most of these 63K cases.

But, just for the sake of argument, let’s assume these are really real Covid hospitalizations, the realest.

Do you know how many hospitals are in the US? The American Hospital Association says about 6K. But let’s exaggerate for the sake of argument and say that only half of these hospitals have pediatric departments to take care of children. So that is 3K hospitals.

A little bit of math and that means an average of about 20 child hospitalizations per hospital over the course of 14 months. So less than 2 child hospitalization per hospital per month.

In other words, the average US hospital had fewer than two cases of a child being hospitalized with Covid per month since August 2020.

Remember all the unhinged fear mongering the media did last month about THE HOSPITALS ARE OVERWHELMED WITH CHILDREN OMG THE DELTA VARIANT OOOOMMMMMMGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

There were dozens of articles like this flooding the news last month, all with almost identical headlines about hospitals being overwhelmed.

It was only a sheer coincidence that since last month, Pfizer and other vaxx companies have been pushing for approval to vaxx children and teenagers.

The NYTimes article with the insane “exaggeration” was all about pushing the vaccine on children by claiming how safe it is and how dangerous Covid is for children. This, of course, is a complete lie.  Numerous reports are showing just how dangerous the Covid vaxx is for children in terms of side effects and causing heart problems like myocarditis, and how relatively benign Covid itself has been for children (even more benign than it is for virtually all adults).

The Guardian reports:

“Healthy boys may be more likely to be admitted to hospital with a rare side-effect of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid vaccine that causes inflammation of the heart than with Covid itself, US researchers claim.

“Their analysis of medical data suggests that boys aged 12 to 15, with no underlying medical conditions, are four to six times more likely to be diagnosed with vaccine-related myocarditis than ending up in hospital with Covid over a four-month period.

When even the mainstream news is putting out reports like — the same mainstream media that has served as Big Pharma’s marketing team throughout this “pandemic” — then you know things are bad.

Going back to the slimy NYTimes:

Note how writing 900,000 instead of 63,000 isn’t a typo or a simple mistake. It had to have been a deliberate and malicious lie that was not corrected by the NYTimes before publication. The author, some bimbo psychopath brown woman, just pulled the number out of thin air. She is supposed to be an “investigative journalist.” What a laugh. Even The Hill notes that she is nothing but an ideological stooge.

Will the media be held responsible for lies like this? Will they pay for the amount of psychological damage they are doing to the population or to little children? Their lies are causing parents to force their children into social isolation, forced masking (i.e., muzzling), and toxic injection of highly experimental substances. The only reason parents would willingly subject their children to such torture and abuse is if those parents were scared that death loomed.

And the only reason parents would have this impression is if they have been systematically lied to over the past 18 months of this hoax.

Why should truth matter when fear gets the job done? It wasn’t truth that made Americans happy to be groped by TSA. Alhamdulillah for Islam, I’d be lost living in this age without Allah’s guidance. May Allah protect us, guide us, and educate us about the reality behind the curtains.
