Ebola and Fukushima Media Blackouts

Anyone here notice how the escalation of concern
rose on these two subjects prior to a complete Media Blackout

How is it possible? How could such an effort have such immediate

EASY. 1. Direct Orders (Financial/Political Leadership)
2. Distraction (Elections),(New Apps)(New Dramatic Headlines)
to further download and distract from physical reality.
3. Electromagnetic Interference of Attention Span.
4. General Ignorance of Populace.

I calculate these methods to be as simple as that. Period.
Now lets think about this for a moment...
The overwhelming media coverage of 1 infected individual in Texas
(who died from Ebola), led to coverage of Medical Staff exposed
to this one individual, and then, other potentially infected Carriers.

Then the CDC made statements, the Head of which was under questioning,
yet all the while stating that flight bans were "not a good idea".
Then actual Political leadership made statements that there was no cause
for alarm.

In the meantime, the Ebola cases have not diminished.
Even with International support and 4000+ U.S. troops being
assigned to Duty in The Infected Region of West Africa.

In fact, Mayor Bloomberg of New York City expressed that
the few "Isolated Infections" that did occur cost The City of New York
over 20 Million Dollars. $20,000,000.00 Capisce ?
He is no idiot, he is calling out negligence and has proof.

Can you imagine the economic damage that even 1 (one) Cluster Infection
would result in any of The Modernized Cities of The World ? Not Even to mention the
Heartache and panic that would ensue.
If anyone of you ATS Members were paying attention, you will recall that there
was a significant dip in the Stock Market during this brief period of MSM Coverage.

The bottom line is this, This Current Ebola Outbreak is the Worst in Historic Record.
It has not Been Contained as of 11-29-2014 and is predicted to spread.
There have have been more cases in the west and worldwide that
Are Not Being Informatively and Timely reported to the general populace.

Now as far as Fukushima is concerned, it is the same exact Media Blind Eye.
Only it is worse. A Lot Worse. The Contamination of the Food Chain, Birth Defects
Illnesses and Deaths are Banned from Discussion. For 250,000 years.

I understand in both of these cases only "Bad News" can result.
Furthermore, the potential for loss of life and economic damage will
most certainly exist and occur.
So from that point of view, maybe a media blackout is the proper method.
Because the truth is , these situations will only get worse.

So After Composing all This, Now I am somewhat convinced that,,,

regarding certain matters, No News is Good News.

Cheers ATS ! Over and Out.

If you can't fix it, why dwell on it?
Please, enlighten me.

Yah, even the cows were freaking out. Get it? Cattle Market? Stock yards? Stock… Market? Thats probably when the media got reined in. "Look we want you (the media) to to scare everybody but not so much that the wealthy are rattled, too."

So good, everyone is frightened and bored to death of Ebola now, the MSM can shut up about it.

I see from the response here that the TV "programming" worked.

Who cares about that stuff? We want Ferguson!

FergusonFergusonFerguson (not been totally bored to death of that yet).

Lets see, Ukraine… nah. Syria (kobani)? Forget about it. The budget? Pffft…

Were did all the elected representatives go? Remember, before the election they talked our heads off, making all those promises about all that stuff they were going to "fix"… now, total silence.

I could go on but, I'm changing channels. Wheres the remote…

Obamas new "Ebola Czar" basically made the media stop reporting it unless they were confirmed cases of ebola. They could not report on suspected cases. Since there have been no more conformed cases they haven't reported on it. No mystery really there a few threads on ATS about it somewhere.

As for Fukushima, they don't want people to realize how bad it is so they just quit talking about it. People know problems aren't problems if you just keep on ignoring it.

600,000 people died from Malaria last year. Let that soak in for a second and then explain again why the media should be covering Ebola MORE than they are / have.

Malaria is easy to treat.

In developing Countries...they don't have the resources to treat it.

The difference is that the developed Countries do not have a quick fix cure for ebola.

Except the drug resistant Malaria spreading through Asia right now, not quite easy anymore.

Half a billion people shrugged off because "oh, that's easy treat", I'm sorry, I'm still not sure why Ebola shouldn't have to wait in line.

I am not suggesting that.

Fact is malaria does not have the same impact in developed Countries.

I agree though, pity the G8 didn't do more about this.

I can make the same case for Ebola. It doesn't have the same effect because of hygiene, preventive measures, funerary practices, and just the overall quality of healthcare.

Fukushima on the other hand, that's a legitimate concern. I'm 100% with you on that. Its like going to the store the day before thanksgiving and forgetting turkey...and snickers. Fukushima is my turkey, snickers is my Ebola.

A few points.

You capitalize the weirdest things. You're writing in English, not German, and either way, you don't Capitalize Words Just For Emphasis.

Bloomberg isn't even the mayor of NYC. It's de Blasio now.

There's no media "blackout" of Ebola. The news networks know what sells, and constantly saying "uh, Ebola might/may/could be a problem sooner or later" only lasts for a few weeks, which is what they gave it. There's been a lot more coverage of this outbreak than previous ones both because it is the worst one on record and because infections occurred outside of Africa this time.

There might be a media blackout of Fukushima, but as with Ebola, there's nothing much to report on. The MSM did report that Fukushima radiation is now detectable in California, so there's that.

In general, the media (at least the American media) isn't too keen on giving people a bunch of information there's no action plan for. It isn't a blackout, people just don't care, and they know that.

Yeah, I hear ya.

Some folks are really pushing the

"Ignorance is Bliss" concept these days.

You have a point,
yet I think maybe the botched responses
to how it was being handled and The Expense
that it is costing the medical facilities involved,
not to mention the "fear factor", also played a
roll in media blackout.

Not to mention the distracting election coverage.

Interestingly, there has been more coverage lately.
WHO statements, MSM banner wordings.

What is worrisome, is that past breakouts have been
contained to several hundred people, in a matter of

There are over 16,000 cases in this outbreak, and there
is no end in sight.

Ignorance is bliss. Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, that's just my style.
And believe me coverage was discontinued
for a while where I am anyway.
