Sure been quiet regarding Ebola lately in the news.
It seems our new Ebola czar has been busy after all. He got the media to shut the heck up about suspected cases.

Zero Hedge


Forbes’ David Kroll – an adjunct professor at Duke University Medical Center - notes: The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed. In other words, the mainstream media has agreed not to report on any suspected Ebola cases.


Yes, we have a lobbyist, not a medical doctor as our Ebola czar. See: Washingtons Blog

Thank goodness we are all safe now.

Maybe it's all quiet in the news because the faux outrage has worn off and Ebola was not as much a threat as we were led to believe.

The media and politicians played it for all it's worth and now they will move on to the next issue that will cause us to shake in our boots and fear the end of the world.

Why should the media report every time someone has a fever, though? It just causes panic and the impression that the disease is spreading. What makes an illness a "suspected case of ebola"? A fever? A cough? It's flu season. There's no need to report it on the news every time someone has a runny nose.

It DOES cause panic and people go a little nuts.

The reason it's not in the news is that people aren't contracting it.



Most of the people being monitored after known or possible exposure to Ebola in Dallas now have a clean bill of health.

Some 177 people were being monitored, including 11 who had confirmed exposure to one of the three Ebola patients from Dallas, Thomas Eric Duncan,Nina Pham, RN, and Amber Vinson, RN, according to the CDC.

.....Because the fear 'pandemic' was growing worse than the threat from Ebola. People absolutely freaking out more than the situation called for.

And why in the name of Sam Hill did anyone think the Ebola Czar should be an M.D.? I mean, did any of you suppose he was going to be seeing patients? Put his shingle on the door "Ebola Czar open for business".

It was created to organize, make decisions, plan strategies, and who knows what else. M.D.'s mostly prefer the hands-on practice of medicine.

Although I do notice the silence happened suddenly. I would like to at least know how Dr. Spencer is doing, and such. But then again, Tuesday is voting day, and those races are the focus of news now.

We need new doom porn anyway, Ebola was getting so that everyone knew that the government was covering up things about it's transmission. So what is the next doom going to be?

Kroll (the troll) and his puppet masters are a bigger threat to my life than ISIS and Ebola combined.

Lobbyists are the lowest of the low.

So they are admitting that the White House does in fact have control of the Media.

How dare that nasty Ebola come along and remind people why they didn't like amnesty?!

It's a good thing they got the media to stop reminding people that it is in fact a good thing to have borders. Full speed ahead on abolishing those terrible and unfair things!!

Just a second.

I posted this this morning in another thread and asked why AP and other press outlets have agreed to this.

There is no other reference to this that I can find anywhere other than this blog. Have you found any? OP? Anyone?

And, BH, I agree. They were getting ridiculous with the reports, and as I said this morning and have kept saying, worse with following up on what happened to the people they reported on, which in my opinion is irresponsible as well.

You know. Use it for the sensation but then when nothing comes of it just never refer to it again. But that's pretty much the status quo for faux journalism these days.

Again, anyone else have confirmation on this? That the czar or anyone else pushed or agreed to this?

ETA: My post this morning.

Yeah weird about the abrupt ending to the presser. Dude took a bus? Erm....

This caught my attention too and it was the only place I see it so far. When did they agree? Did they agree on their own? Or did someone ask them to?


The Associated Press and other press outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed.

But I’m covering tonight’s announcement of a potential Ebola case because it has been reported in my area, and at Duke University Medical Center, an institution where I hold an unpaid adjunct associate professor appointment in their Department of Medicine. [Forbes]


I think the better guideline would be, if you report a potential case you have to report the results as loudly. And the other thing is, don't you have to keep testing them for 21 to 42 days?

Goes with this: US Has Test That Can Detect Ebola Virus In Seconds (But It’s Stuck In A Lab) and this: Scientists create litmus-like paper Ebola tests taking 30 minutes.

ETA: Come on about the SWAT teams already. The CDC has always had SWAT teams and they announced the military rapid response teams weeks ago. That is a sensible and logical move.

When the so called 'SPANISH FLU', started, no means of Western World were allowed to mentions, the reason being it happened / started. During WW1.......... SPAIN however was not under such Propaganda rules and it was Spain that did therefore report such.......is this a case of 'Here we go again?'

Well, the BBC says that while cases are dropping in Liberia, cases in Sierra Leone have risen dramatically. So it is still in the news. The reason why nobody here in the West is freaking out anymore might be because with supportive care the vast majority get better. It is still a big problem, but not here so much. People like to put blinders on when something happens somewhere else. s&f

This has been around since 1976, even David Attenborough paid a visit to one cave in which Elephants seek salt and another that stinks of Nitor Ammonia, said to be the result of Fruit bats housed there during the day. Ok so we heard a slight muffle back in 76 about the Marburg then the Ebola Viruses....Remeber the True Book 'Hot Zone' ???? However WHO nor the UN or indeed the well funded Government officials of Africa, did no more than Purchase Arms, and open private Bank Accounts. Remember Rwanda? Ethiopia? Zambisi?? etc.etc.etc. where no part of the said Western World got Involved ???? Many of us - an I am 68 years of age - have funded Charities since way back in the 50s, yet nothing seems to have been done, OH Yes,,A host of new funds were set-up to protect The African Animals and Birds........... What a lovely, caring world..........

Makes sense. If no one is reporting on possible cases it's easier to hide or "disappear" real ones! I wish I was good at math cause I bet if you took the total population of the Infect African Nations and the number of people coming to US (and other parts of the world) there has to be more cases out there! I guess we wont really know until its pretty bad and to me pretty bad is a few hundred cases.
