Attacking hydroxychloroquine treatments with a coordinated press.

The press corps doesn’t want you to believe that hydroxychloroquine can help a person who has contracted covid-19. I don’t believe the press corps. I suggest that they are just making this move according to political strategies and goals that might have something to do with game theory.

I have therefore added a book about game theory to my summer reading list. I will continue ignoring their claims against hydroxychloroquine as I go about sussing out some sort of reason why our press corps would make them. I am sorry to see this massive push to ignore a treatment that can save lives. Balderdash.

I have already read reports published by doctors and seen videos of doctors who have worked on the front lines who have been treating covid-sick people and they have said that hydroxychloroquine is safe and effective in careful doses to treat people who have tested positive for covid-19. I believe the doctors. Hydroxychloroquine is by a large margin, their drug of choice for better treatment outcomes.

We have all heard the press corps make up lies to help some political candidates and destroy others. This current launch of a disinformation campaign against hydroxychloroquine fits in well with previous ones like the Russia Hoax. I no longer give such claims against reality any credence.

The American press corps is owned by five or so mega-corporations that have monopoly power in the news world.  You and I don’t have a reason to trust these mega-news-monopolists after the 2016 election and the subsequent news distortions that have become all-too-familiar. A great resource to learn about monopoly press in the United States is Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of Mass Media, by Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky, published by Pantheon Books, New York in 1988 and renewed in 2002. From the copyright date, you can see that monopoly press gained influence decades ago.

To continue, I disagree with politicians who want to continue suggesting that covid-19 is more deadly and dangerous than it is in reality. Deaths by covid-19 are being exaggerated.

The notion that people across America were compelled to wear masks is not true either. They did it out of courtesy to help their neighbors.

The idea that conditions still exist that justify an expansion of government power is also not true. There was never a need to quarantine anyone who was not sick. Continued fines against people who open their businesses against a government mandate after covid-19 has proved to be a lesser threat are unjust and un-American.

If you want to learn more about why your government has become so wrongheaded about so much of what it is doing, buy a copy of Political Catsup with Economy Fries available at, where I will take you through the steps of change that have perverted our nation’s operations and produced the mess that surrounds us all.
