Evidence that the media hysteria about Coronavirus is politically motivated


Here's a little lesson for you in how powerful the media is for controlling public opinion and manipulating crowd psychology.... 

Obama era, June 2009 to August 2010:  the CDC estimates that about 61 million people in the US were infected by H1N1, also known as Swine flu, resulting in 274,000 hospitalizations and 12,500 deaths.

Media response:  pretty chill. A Google search for "H1N1 toilet paper" finds no past articles about bulk toilet paper purchases or shelves emptied of toilet paper. A Google image search for the same words returns no images of bulk toilet paper purchases or shelves emptied of toilet paper. 


Trump era, 2020:  as of 4pm EST yesterday, the CDC has confirmed 1215 cases of Coronavirus and 36 deaths in the US.

Media response:  attempt to induce public mass hysteria. A Google search for "Coronavirus toilet paper" yields dozens if not hundreds of articles about bulk toilet paper purchases and shelves emptied of toilet paper. A Google image search for the same words reveals similar coverage of the topic.

If you're you think this epidemic isn't being politicized because this is an election year, I would say that based on that data alone, you're wrong. Is the liberal media pushing an agenda because they've decided who they want (or don't want) for president? I'll leave that up to you to decide. We've already seen what they've done with trying to suppress Bernie. Do you really think the liberal media works for you?

Epilogue:  after talking to friends overseas whose countries are not having election years, but still have media hysteria and mass toilet paper buying, I have to conclude that the news coverage of the virus isn't entirely political at all. So there you go.
