Amusing medical history (x2)

leave a comment »

I came across this piece of history the other day, the Great 1976 Swine Flu Fraud, as shown in this 6 minute piece from the old CBS TV series, 60 Minutes. There’s some amusing stuff following that segment that shows how doctors were used by tobacco companies to promote smoking – but you can ignore that. 🙂

The parallels with today are uncanny.

Exaggerations of the severity of the virus. Media propaganda and fear-mongering (the 70’s was when the phrase, If It Bleeds, It Leads first appeared). An effort to vaccinate the whole nation. Serious vaccine-coincident side-effects, and an apparent government cover-up of the latter. All were elements of the ’76 fiasco. Watch and laugh (or cry)!

Of course this happened with a Republican President (Ford) in charge, which probably made targeting the government an easier call for a Liberal like Mike Wallace.

Still, as you watch it you have to be impressed at the way Wallace goes after the “U.S. government’s publicity machine”, reveals lies told by officials, and grills ex–CDC head Dr. David Sencer, who devised and pushed the swine flu program. The MSM are too far in the Establishment tank today to do any of this to themselves or the likes of Dr Fauci.

This one’s just as amusing and it’s only from 2009. Even in the afterglow of Obama’s election and how OTT the MSM were for him, they could still laugh at a spokesmen trying to explain away the stupidity of Joe Biden.
