Media Lies, Blames Trump for Man Consuming Fish Tank Chemicals to Cure Coronavirus

Trump did not say to consume fish tank additives.

Liberal media outlets are making wild accusations of false medical advice after an Arizona couple consumed fishtank chemicals that contain a substance President Donald Trump said could prove useful in fighting coronavirus.

An Arizona man died Monday after he ingested fish tank additives that contain a chemical President Trump said could be used for new drugs to fight the Chinese coronavirus. His wife remains in critical condition in the hospital.

Reporting from the Hill frames the event as if the man and his wife took medication containing chloroquine phosphate. But the couple did not take products designed for human consumption, instead ingesting fish treatment chemicals that merely contain the chemical.

There’s no reason to believe that the couple even took anything that was designed as malaria medication. Fish tank additives certainly aren’t even if they contain chloroquine(in far differing levels than actual medications).

Liberal windbag George Conway was one of several prominent commentators who fired off with the desperately reaching accusation against Trump, claiming that Trump’s comments on the substance’s potential were enough for the Arizona couple to assume that consuming fish tank additives would be safe.

CNN International’s headline also neglected to clarify that the man had self-medicated with a fishtank product that is in no way intended for human consumption.

Liberal Twitter personalities and mainstream media outlets simply running with an account of events that involved the couple taking a substance Trump recommended for human consumption were promptly corrected.

Choloroquine phosphate does contain medical value, as Trump correctly stated. The substance is used in drugs that treat malaria. But it should go without saying that fishtank chemicals are not designed for medical use, and President Trump in no way shape or form endorsed such consumption.

President Trump had said at a Thursday press briefing that chloroquine-based treatments were showing “very, very encouraging early results” and that “we’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately.”

The death of an Arizona man and the injury of his wife from ingesting the chemical is a tragedy. But adults should know that taking foreign chemical substances not intended for human consumption without the advice of a doctor is simply a bad move.

SILVER LINING? Coronavirus Economic Fallout Expected to Destroy Hundreds of Main Stream Newspapers, Magazines

The fake news media is dying even more quickly because of coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic is expected to cause massive economic damage throughout many sectors, and what remains of the legacy journalism industry may be wiped out as a result.

The Seattle Times serves as a microcosm for what is happening to local papers throughout America in the age of coronavirus. As they deal with a community ravaged by the pandemic, their advertising budget has completely dried up, and they may not be able to remain in business for much longer.

“Virtually all entertainment advertising is gone, restaurants gone. Automobile advertising is starting to get impacted,” said Alan Fisco, the president and CFO of the paper, to BuzzFeed News.

Even though the paper’s “online traffic has been at times off the charts,” they are unable to properly monetize that traffic. They fear that the ad revenue may be lost forever by the time the coronavirus pandemic comes to a close.

“If you go back to events in the past where you’ve seen some big impacts [to ad spending], does all of it come back? It hasn’t,” Fisco said.

Ken Doctor, who analyzes the news industry with the firm Newsonomics, believes that the economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be much worse for the media industry than the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a 19 percent decline in revenue for newspapers.

“[Newspaper] advertising revenue is getting just wiped out,” Doctor said to BuzzFeed News, adding that the situation is already “worse than in 2008 and 2009.”

For many media entities, Doctor believes that this will be the end. He said that “this seems like for them truly it is the full extinction event. I don’t know how they come back.”

The Seattle Times may be able to survive due to rising subscriber fees. Other big-name dailies – like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post – are expected to weather the storm as well. However, all of the smaller local newspapers and digital providers will likely be wiped out completely.

“I think there we will unfortunately see more closures of newspapers, more news deserts as a result of this,” Fisco said.

Media companies and reporters are already reporting on the early damage that has been caused because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesperson for BuzzFeed News, who published the initial story about how the media industry is hurting because of coronavirus, said their provider is working to avoid firing staffers in these trying times.

“BuzzFeed’s leadership team is exploring a range of ways to support employees while protecting our business,” said Chief Communications Officer Carole Robinson. “Our goal is to avoid layoffs, with an alternative plan that requires some sacrifice from all of us — and especially those on the executive team — ultimately allowing us to remain a strong company over the long-term.”

The coronavirus pandemic is a worst case scenario come to life, but the economic fallout from the crisis may prove to be fatal for the fake news industry.
