Although I don't frequent the Natural News site all that much, I do get their emails.
I've seen the way they rely on hysteria and fear mongering and not a whole lot of
rationality. And being a cancer patient myself I suppose I resent all of the
woo woo medicine they promote on that site. I just never got around to
...until now. What moved me to take action? I was just floored
when I saw one of the recent headlines:
]Forty million Japanese in 'extreme danger' of life-threatening radiation poisoning, mass evacuations likely
According to a recent report by EUTimes.net, Japanese authorities have indicated that as many as 40 million Japanese people are in "extreme
danger" of radiation poisoning, and many eastern cities, including Tokyo, may have to be evacuated in the next few weeks or months to avoid extreme
We all know the situation in Japan is serious indeed. But this kind of fear-mongering/hysteria-
inducing garbage coupled with the citing of a known hoax site
as a credible source..well,
let's just say I'm getting another wake-up call about the vast amount of disinformation on the
internet and how it spreads.
If that wasn't enough, you have to log into Facebook to leave a comment. Now
I don't do Facebook
so of course I couldn't leave a comment pointing out this
obvious misuse of the facts. But having to log into FB to leave a comment means this kind
of disinfo will spread even faster.
I dug a little deeper and found out the owner of the site, Mike Adams is an ex-Scientology
member still promoting....you guessed it! Scientology. I've been doing a ton of research
into the study of mind control these past few months and have learned quite a bit about
Scientology and have read numerous accounts of people who have escaped from that
cult after being enslaved for years. Never mind Lord Zenu and the other weird sh*t they're into.
So I guess it's no surprise someone like that would own a site like Natural News.
If EU Times belongs in the hoax
bin, perhaps Natural News does as well.
This is probably not news to a lot of members here. Me, I guess I'm still catching up.
Sorry, mods, this probably belongs in the Rant section. Move it if you need to.
