Geniuses at the Australian newspaper keep on giving

In my previous post I quoted the Australian newspaper editorial. It’s gift that keeps on giving. I expect that it will go on giving ineptly throughout this new year.

This from the last day of the old year:

The tragic death of a child who was Covid-positive in South Australia is a devastating reminder of how potentially dangerous the virus can be. Authorities have yet to determine the cause of the child’s death, Premier Steven Marshall said.

I don’t like making any kind of point built on a child’s death. It is so sad and tragic whatever the cause. But how in the world does this kind of editorial ever pass muster at any sensible newspaper?

To the geniuses at the Australian. If the child did not die of Covid then it isn’t a devastating reminder of how potentially dangerous the virus can be. It’s most definitely, whatever the outcome, a devastating reminder of how dumb and irresponsible you are.

The same geniuses also drew attention to the UK parliament’s Jacob Rees-Mogg claiming that nine out of ten patients in intensive care in London were unvaccinated. Maybe, I don’t know. But, to balance the scales, and provide useful information, perhaps they might have also noted that the latest UK government Covid surveillance report (for the four weeks to December 16) shows that the rate of infection among the double vaccinated is higher than among the unvaccinated. My simple average across the age groups puts the comparison at 15.8 versus 12.7 per 1000.

A devastating potential conclusion: you’re at more risk of catching Covid from the vaxxed than the unvaxxed. HNY but beware the vaxxed!

    That’s why they will be coming for the unvaxxed – the unvaxxed ruin their narrative.

  2. The 9 out 0f 10 comment is standard government/ bureaucrat propaganda megaphoned at 1000 decibels by MSM. The comment has been disproved by their own data by a lot of people. 48% of people in ICU unvaxxed.

  3. Going by the relayed BBC news on ABC News Radio Thursday, “the overwhelming majority of covid patients were yet to receive their boosters”. That might not be verbatim, but it’s damn near, and it immediately struck me as weaselly bordering on deliberately Ministry of Truth. I’d bet a few bucks that this was the “unvaccinated” metric that JR-Mogg was blethering about on the parliament floor.

  4. I noted this story on Thursday at ABC Online and knew immediately it was bullshit. The other death of the day in SA was a 94 year-old woman. The official cause of her death is also unknown at this time. The toddler was used to counteract the humdrum normality of a nonogenerian’s demise.

    South Australian officials won’t even confirm the infant was in hospital.

    Mr Marshall would not confirm whether the child had been in hospital.

    “This child was COVID-positive, but the cause of death hasn’t been determined yet,” he said.

    “I’ve been asked by Professor Nicola Spurrier to narrow my comments.”

    On that same Thursday, SA Health reported:

    There are 23 cases in hospital, of which four people are in ICU, one person is ventilated.
    Of the hospitalised cases, 12 people are fully vaccinated, and 11 are unvaccinated (includes partial and nil vaccination).

    Governments and health authorities are not to be trusted about Covid when, instead of being open and transparent, they deliberately obfuscate the issue.
    The excuse often trotted out about “privacy” doesn’t wash, especially considering they raised the subject of a person’s medical status in the first place for their own agenda.

  6. I am in hospital and not “vaccinated “ as per the powers that be definition against covoid.
    Just thought I’d mention it..
    Had surgery.
    The miracle of nicotine has kept me safe so far.
    However I was moved as the ward I was on became the Covid ward. It seems
    Psychsymatic symptoms are more prevelant than real breathing issues.

  7. In other words, everyone in an ICU has been vaccinated for Covid/19 at least once.
    Can’t say that though, some people might draw the obvious conclusion that:
    Reaction to the Vax is the reason that they’re in an ICU.

  8. I suspect the order has come down on high at both the Oz and at Sky News to run the Cathedral line on bat crud as well as on climate rubbish. I linked a similar stinker at Sky News yesterday as an example – very out of character from the general run of articles. Stood out like proverbials.

    This stuff is the tippy-toe footprints of Murdoch kiddies in action.

  9. It is a devastating conclusion, but my prolonged survey of the internet and other media sources in relation to the challenges of the last two years leads me to conclude that Australians are probably the most compliant, fearful, and cognitively impaired people alive today.

  10. The Australian needs a new logo sitting atop its marketing — the gaslight.

    It’s embarrassing how uninterested in the truth are its editorial staff. They have become government propagandists — the exact opposite of their job description.

  11. Do we see editorials like this when an infant ends up dead after being starved, assaulted or murdered in cold blood due to dysfunctional “relationships” and the corrosive destructive effects of obligation free welfare and public housing?

    No, no we don’t, funnily enough.

    What we do see (and this editorial is a signal example) is Z-grade fear mongering morons unquestioningly flogging an agenda that is controlling them, not the other way around. Why anyone would willingly subscribe to or purchase the Australian is inexplicable – it is a disgrace and the antithesis of journalism (with the occasional exception).

  12. I posted this comment in the Australia today.

    Still sitting on Pending. I posted 5 hours ago.

    ‘If 5% of Australians are still unvaccinated. My question is why has ATAGI not given emergency approval to the NovaVax vaccine? I know many people who have done their research and would happily take this vaccine.’

    Cancelling my subscription tomorrow

  13. we have people like these great aussies, I believe we will prevail.

    They were great, weren’t they? But until we see a generalised movement actually develop, I am not optimistic.

    In which case how can any self respecting journalist continue in their employ?

    Are there such in their employ?

    Over and over, this is the play book of every CHO, especially Kerry Chant.

  16. I cancelled my OZ subscription years ago. Am well and truly over ScoMo booster Murray and his ilk. So my Foxtel has recently gone the way off all flesh. If you only want sport/movies there are cheaper options anyway. And news sources are available. Am holding off final opinion on Jones’ streaming venture – but more good than bad. Early days though. GETTR is a new site to me . The web remains a holdout to the cancel freaks at Netflex etc. Difficult to know how many Australians actively search the web for alternative points of view – not many if my recent social interactions are any guide. Watched Alex Antic the other night on …Jesse Waters from memory. The tyranny in Oz is still news over there. Happy NY to all and fingers crossed for ’22. I’m not overly optimistic.
