Antidotes to Mass Media Poison

Unread post by Cewfs » Tue May 04, 2021 3:35 am

Firstly congratulations AYR team for brilliant research, yakka, and powerful database.

I may be shot down but reckon that yowies, AYR and the general public could soon be in for some stick, due to the lies and misinformation spread by tabloid newspapers. Such rags are there to sensationalise or fabricate stories for profit rather than promote science, genuine research and useful knowledge.

The UK Daily Mail, in Aug 2018, took a very credible AYR report and concocted a yarn of a woman fighting off a yowie with a cricket bat. The UK Daily Mail has a history of pushing dangerous nonsense regarding vacinations..... https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theg ... accine-mmr

The UK murdoch tabloid 'The Sun' (Tit and Bum) also has a long history of pushing poisonous lies.

The morons and gullible who swallow gutter press garbage are likely to further spread dangerous misinformation and mayham. In oz such hoons are likely to be first to charge into the bush with guns, riding roughshod over the needs of locals, yowies and the environment.

The harm from media promoted lies is also obvious in the many thousands of excess covid deaths in the UK and USA.

If the bullshit is effectively countered I'm confident of cracking developments.

Scurrilous tabloids have some use however, torn into squares and stuck on a nail in a dunny.

I don't think this is the site to talk about what newspapers and media do. There are plenty of places to have your say. Best we just keep it Yowie Related on here.

Mate it is all apart of the Elite's control of the Media. They do not tell the truth much, they have an agenda

Seems a little harsh IMHO; yowies do get an associated mention and after all it's posted in the 'OFF TOPIC' section . . .
