Fake News Gonna Fake CBC Caught Using Photo From Ukraine In 2016 To Describe A Baby Suffering From Kawasaki Disease Linked To Coronavirus

At the end of March CBS News painted a dire picture from New York City this week in their coronavirus coverage. CBS aired a “terrifying” footage from a New York hospital.

Of course, that was fake news because they used a video from an Italian hospital.

There was no need to add that footage except to stoke panic.

Video comparison from the two news outlets.

They did answer a few days later and confirmed that it was an editor’s mistake!

But that wasn’t enough they now try to creat panic using children.

They were caught using a photo from 2016 in Ukraine to describe a baby suffering from Kawasaki disease linked to coronavirus.

Here is the 2016 photo describing an infant suffering from the Coxsackie virus.

And here is the same image used by CBS to describe a rare condition in children linked to the coronavirus.

This is really strange time. A time where thousand of American patriots were removed from social media platforms for allegedly spreading “fake news”.

But what about the big mainstream media corporations?

FCC can only regulate individual broadcasting stations- they don’t regulate Media companies.

They are literally not regulated by anybody. Remember the Trayvon Martin media blitz where CBS was caught doctoring the 911 call to make it look like Zimmerman was racist? They got caught red-handed and smeared a guy all over the news and there were no consequences.

I hope that this time they will be punished at least by the American citizens for spreading this kind of news.

The only way to really go at this is to actually get back to the Smith Mundt act and fix it so it works and you can file criminal charges against those who use illegal censorship and propaganda against US Citizens.

Whenever the media gives any report of children suffering, it’s almost always a complete fabrication.

This one about Kawasaki’s disease was obvious from the beginning!

Just curious: Do you think hospitals are going to release photos of their patients?

If you do, you should start doing some reading.

One of my Trump hating neighbors told me that we cannot open the schools due to Kawasaki disease. I did not know what he was talking about. He also told me that their is video tape of Trump telling Americans to inject Lysol. These leftist Trump haters are unhinged.

There is no disclaimer by the media when they use fake footage and make people believe its for the current story they are reporting.

this is much more favrication, like when they did the fake ford pickup explosion story.

Even advertisers for certain products have to run a disclaimer that they are using actors or paid compensation to people.

Nowadays it seems that “journalists” think the movie “Broadcast News” is how you do good journalism.

Make no mistake, this is the media’s hysterical response to the fact that Trump will be reelected. They will do anything and everything to prevent it.

I make it easy on myself and don’t believe anything from MSM.

"...editor’s mistake..."

Translation: Editor got caught.

Can you imagine how many problems would vanish if people stopped watching the news?
