Whiny Media McWhiner of the Month, by Michelle Malkin4 min read
September has scarcely begun, but I’m self-confident no 1 will prime my Whiny Media McWhiner of the Thirty day period nominee. This diaper-wetting award winner really takes the cake. With unhinged cowards like the San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board editor Matthew Fleischer occupying lofty perches of affect, it’s no wonder general public self-assurance in American newspaper and television news has plunged to all-time lows, according to the latest Gallup poll.
To start with, some qualifications: As owner Hearst Company brags, “The San Francisco Chronicle is the greatest newspaper in Northern California” and “the next premier on the West Coast.” Sunday print circulation tops 211,000. Its internet site reportedly reaches in excess of 6 million users across the place each thirty day period. Fleischer holds an M.A. in journalism from New York College, labored as a “senior digital feeling editor” at the Los Angeles Instances for 6 several years, and wrote for a very long record of mainstream publications ahead of landing in the Bay Space in April 2021.
For the previous two and a 50 percent years, Fleischer’s worry-mongering Chronicle editorial board hectored and harangued audience to trust the COVID science (translation: swallow each Huge Government, Huge Pharma and Significant Tech assert with out concern or complaint). Fleischer and his colleagues backed the draconian lockdown procedures of San Francisco Mayor London Breed (which did not utilize to her, of system, as she partied maskless at jazz clubs). The Chronicle editorial board was so serious that it castigated serial control-freak lockdown hypocrite Gov. Gavin Newsom for not doing more than enough to protect against sane individuals from acquiring on with their life.
Fleischer’s viewpoint pages also pushed for indefinite indoor masking, advocated “making vaccination the cost of admission to culture,” and rallied the remaining-wing elitist pandemic mob versus educated dad and mom performing exercises their religious liberty and professional medical autonomy. The newspaper crusaded for legislative initiatives to outlaw individual belief exemptions from vaccine mandates and to drive each and every faculty-age baby to post to experimental jabs in the title of public health.
But just like Mayor Breed, Gov. Newsom and all the other two-faced COVID tyrants who exempt by themselves from the rigid rules they’ve imposed on the hoi polloi, the Chronicle’s editorial webpage editor believes the rules and “the science” should be bent and overlooked by the impressive and the privileged when it suits them.
On Sunday, Fleischer released a diatribe blasting health-related industry experts for not supplying him Paxlovid supplements just after he contracted COVID — even although the industry experts and authorities he so worships identified he “wasn’t technically eligible” because he was “under 65 without the need of any severe comorbidities.” The title of his whine-ditorial:
“Omicron lastly bought me immediately after two decades of currently being a COVID hermit. Then, physicians built it even worse.”
Sure, he was a “COVID hermit,” cloistered in his Bay Spot house (median sale cost: $1.3 million) wherever he admits he sat all over, stuffed his face and gained “fifteen added lbs.” Acquiring fatter “was well worth it to prevent acquiring ill,” he claimed. So, he holed up in his “cave,” spurned the health and fitness center (“no thanks,” he scoffed) and averted “the place of work, indoor gatherings and eating places.”
That’s right. He selected to keep away from fresh air, exercising and sunlight — successful natural immune boosters, in accordance to a raft of peer-reviewed scientific tests. You know: Science. Rather, he bought vaxxed and boosted, masked up and hunkered down, and even now finished up with COVID immediately after traveling out to the East Coastline this summertime. Whose fault is it? The subtitle of his gripe-fest is pure media megalomania:
“BA.5 just wiped me out for 12 days. Why did medical doctors let me get sick rather of providing me Paxlovid?”
What a weenie. You know what I did when lockdown mania strike? I took obligation for my well being. In the spring of 2020, although governing administration goons shut down gyms and blocked off playgrounds and parks with crime tape, I took up pickleball (currently competing in tournaments at 4. blended doubles), lifted weights in the garage, ate healthful, hiked Colorado trails and mountains, loaded up on nutritional vitamins and health supplements, and secured ivermectin (which The Establishment Experts are ultimately acknowledging gives prophylactic security “associated with reductions in COVID-19 infection, hospitalization, and mortality fees.”)
Oh, and I refused — still to this day — to be a guinea pig for those Major Pharma items that came out of corrupted COVID-19 vaccine medical trials. I’ve experienced COVID once even though living lifetime to the fullest, jab-less and maskless, when the vaccine and lockdown haranguers go through reinfection following rebound right after rebound, with or without having Paxlovid as their savior.
In spite of there remaining no reward to him using Paxlovid, Fleischer fumes that he should really be permitted to dismiss formal community wellness steerage and pop the supplements on desire mainly because, nicely, because!
Stubbornly clinging to Huge Pharma Voodoo, this nattering ninny is “hopeful the new omicron booster” will finish the pandemic. LOL. Meantime, all of us by natural means healthier, in good shape and fearless citizens who refuse to post to the infinite drugs and profiteering injections that failed him miserably view in both equally horror and amusement at the media meltdowns of reclusive basket cases. Cry more challenging.
