Daily Media Fear mongering
Fearmongering  [back] Viral mania  [back] Infectious scares

[Fear mongering either to sell vaccines & drugs (also to draw attention away from chemical poisoning eg BSE, SARS possibly), the war on terrorism hoax, or just to keep the fear levels up for more effective take of Corporate propaganda.  Note how the killer bug always comes from some other country so they can make it up to suit.  In that country they will be made to fear some other bug from abroad depending on which vaccine or drug (eg Tamiflu) they are trying to flog.]

"I have lectured all over the world... I have always had a special interest in newspapers. All of them have one thing in common, there is always some reference made to some epidemic in some part of the world. For instance, two years ago, one paper referred to a polio epidemic in Holland. For the past three years, our newspapers have commented on the diphtheria epidemic in Russia. By these means, the population is constantly threatened with epidemics, they have been made to fear them, and the reports always conclude: "Go and get vaccinated".--Dr Buchwald MD.
