Who needs ebola?
Those things gave me nightmares as a kid and still give me the willies.


Sort of surprised that airborne monkeys carrying ebola isn't a meme. Or is it. Or does it start right here, right now?

Well it did seem silly to keep reporting "suspected cases" every time somebody had a fever.

I think this is a HOAX and that this thread should be hoax binned until it can be proved that:


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.


I STILL see nowhere where anyone agreed to anything of this kind or pressured anyone to do anything of this kind. And it didn't even go all that viral yet, so it's a pretty poor, failed hoax at that.

It seems our new Ebola czar has been busy after all. He got the media to shut the heck up about suspected cases.


This only gives credence to what everyone knows here on ATS, that our media is controlled by our government.

Oh, really? How can or does one person's opinion or speculation, backed up by absolutely no facts but one blogger's unproven statement, give credence to anything?

Or maybe because they finally realize what the public health community has been saying all along that suspected cases are not news worthy, just because the media has failed to understand how risk assessments work and have been reporting that every suspected cases is the beginning of the end of the world. There is a huge list of diagnosis that accompany a suspected EVD all are considerably more likely but you're not outraged that they don't report every suspect malaria case are you or even every suspected influenza cases which by the way both kill considerably more than Ebola could ever potentially could.
If they were reporting on suspected cases its all you would ever see there has been 2 confirmed out of 1000s in the US. World wide there have been 10s of thousands probably even hundreds of thousands of suspected cases and not 1 confirmed except for the nurse in Spain (who was treating an EVD patient) Just because your fear mongering media stops reporting and has moved on to the next top selling headline doesnt mean its a conspiracy.
You are safe, in fact you were never in any danger least of all from Ebola.

Not a hoax (but neither is it a government conspiracy), ProMed (an international disease network if your not familiar with it) stopped reporting suspected suspected cases last week, simply its a waste of time and >99.9% are not Ebola. At one point China was monitoring something like 5000 'suspected' cases, its just silly to report it because people a drastically failing to distinguish between suspected and confirmed there is a considerable valley full of other diseases and conditions that are significantly more likely that needs to be crossed before EVD can be confirmed and all it does it make ignorant public afraid of everything..

good riddance, it got just about as stupid as the 2012 predictions in here.
So for a while at least we should manage to sustain rational debates

It's a hoax. One blogger said something that there is absolutely no proof for. That the czar muzzled the press.

ETA: Okay, maybe it's just a big old lie. Is there a lie bin?

People were getting really worried. We probably should be concerned. Denial is not a safe place to hide.
I am guessing the cases are three times more than the numbers released. I would guess 25,000 people have contracted it, and 12,000 are dead. There is no vaccine and no cure. The effort in the USA to save the patients who contracted the disease was probably monumental, and the cost phenomenal.
If we were to really see the truth in Africa we would be really concerned. This is no joke, and I really hope it can be contained. I predict a resurgence in concern in December when things are exploding out of control. Public awareness
is really what may keep the disease from spreading in the USA.

People's "appetite" for ebola stories is really kind of freaky to me. It's like they WANT there to be more of a story than there really is. I know the National Report is a "fake news" site, but many people are fooled by it every day and panic ensues.

Our Appetite for Fake Ebola Stories and Other Bunk



As if the genuine horrors of Ebola weren’t enough, a website called the National Report has taken to ginning up hoax “reports” about the disease. Over the past month, the site has published at least seven fake stories about Ebola, including one reporting that authorities quarantined the entire town of Purdon, Texas. It would be generous to describe the National Report’s treatment of current events as “satirical.” In addition to this bogus (and stupid) story, the site has published others about Texas kindergarteners getting Ebola from a Liberian foreign exchange student; the government’s plan to implant RFID chips in citizens during a pilot Ebola vaccination program; the president’s promise that Obamacare will cover the coming epidemic; and more.

The National Report, which specializes in fake news (“Graffiti Artist Banksy Arrested in London,” “Federal Government to Restrict Hunting by Setting a Minimum Age of 21“) got a boost with its Purdon story. The Verge reported that the site enjoyed a traffic spike of 2 million unique visitors in a single day last week. And it appears that a good number of readers swallowed the Purdon piece.


Ebola Bullies


Children from Africa with no connection to the Ebola virus have been shunned at schools across the country because of something that may be far more contagious: bullying.

In New York City, two Senegalese brothers — only 11 and 13 — were beaten so badly on the playground that they were taken to a hospital emergency room. Their bullies chanted: “Ebola! Get away from here!”


There are many reasons for the media to stop reporting every time someone coughs. It's affecting the nation in a negative way. And IF this OP story is true, it's a good thing. If it's not true, seems the media has somewhat come to its senses.

Yes, you are right, I posted a very nice detail and so other members did also of the background of the Ebola Czar, very clearly it was defined as a "fixer", he is not doctor, neither a specialist of any kind, he is a bureaucratic lawyer.

He was involved in the Obama administration "green energy scandal" he was the one that pushed the Obama administration to allocate tax dollars into a venture that became nothing but a waste and abuse of billions of dollars.

Did he seen any court or congressional hearings for that? hell not, when the scandal cool down Obama call him again to promote him.

As soon he became the Czar the ebola news started to die down, and that was his job, to fix the ebola scaremongering because it was damaging the Obama administration after the Mr. Duncan fiasco in Dallas.

I'm glad it's not just me. I was always scared #less of flying monkeys as a kid, and it wasn't until I was an adult that I found out my next older brother literally could not watch the abduction scene from Wizard of Oz.

That is why he was called by Obama itself to do the ebola dirty business, he is regarded as a fixer and a good one as per news when He was assigned to be the "ebola Czar", this is dangerous and troublesome.

So he did what he was told to do, fix the ebola scaremongering until after elections, control of airwaves and spread of information, then when they need the ebola scare again for the promotion of the upcoming vaccines to be ready in Jan 2015.


Sounds like you should get one of those bumper stickers the other poster was talking about. Oh wait. You're not "southern". : @@ "

Is been incidents in NY of bullying , but the allegations of beating are more of pushing, still this should never be allowed in schools or public places specially on children, I find it despicable.


Pabe and Amadou Drame, who are from Senegal, have been in the U.S. for less than a month. They speak no English but they are already learning a harsh lesson in school yard bullying.

Some students at I.S 318 threatened them, telling the boys they weren’t allowed to touch the gym equipment, they said.

“They said, ‘The kids are being mean,'” according to their father, Ousmane Drame. When he asked them about the incidents, one of his boys said, “I don’t do nothing to them, they call me ‘Ebola.’ They beat me…. kicked me.”

Their father took his sons to the doctor, but said their scars are largely emotional.

An advocacy group for African immigrants claimed that the brothers, ages 11 and 13, also were jumped and beaten during the incident on Friday afternoon at a Bronx middle school. But school officials said there were no serious injuries and police never got involved.

“They feel threatened, they feel stigmatized, they feel as if they are being held accountable for something they had nothing to do with,” said State Senator Bill Perkins.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña gave the following statement Monday:


“We will not tolerate intimidation or bullying of our students, especially in this moment when New Yorkers need to come together. We are investigating this incident and we take this matter very seriously.”


pix11.com...

Now note how an advocacy group for African immigrants go involved in the case and they are the ones calling that the children were beaten. I know is wrong any bullying of any kind, but the case never was filed to the police and the children were not injured.

See how news are used for some groups advantage also.

Who can we trust when it comes to news and sensationalism.
