A person who searches for and tries to expose real or alleged corruption, scandal, or other wrongdoing, especially in politics: The original muckrakers were the journalists who exposed child labor, sweatshops, poor living and working conditions, and government inefficiency in the early 20th century. – dictionary.com
Whatever happened to those independent journalists and news outlets that used to focus on exposing the wrongs in society? The unfortunate answer is that they are an endangered breed as the news media outlets, for the most part, are owned by corporations. The corporation, not the individual journalist or newscaster decides what you read in the newspaper or watch on your television. All news outlets have editors who decide what gets printed or broadcasted and conversely, what is omitted. The editors in turn are ultimately beholden to the corporations who can dictate policy, editorial content and what to report on. Your local newspaper or news station is most likely owned by a corporation that owns a chain of news outlets across the country. These corporations ultimately control the spread of information and what is being reported. The result is that muckrakers are a relic of the past as independent journalism has vanished. The news you receive daily is subject to control by a few corporate entities who have the ability to influence your thinking and perception of what's happening in the world.
Nope, They're No Longer Here
How This Applies To The False Covid Narrative
We'll use a local newspaper, The Canejo Guardian as an example. According to its news website, the Conejo Guardian is a California non-profit corporation, and thus is owned by the community and operated for the community. As a non-profit we do not endorse any political parties or candidates. The Conejo Guardian publishes independent local news continually on this website and delivers a print edition monthly with a circulation around 39,000. Our operating costs are underwritten by advertising and donations.
Notice the keywords – namely, non-profit, independent, advertising and donations. This particular newspaper is not owned by a corporation. They are not tied to the purse strings of a corporation and can thus publish whatever they want, whenever they want.
So What's Really Happening with the Covid Jab?
This is what they reported on 12/14/21 regarding what nurses are seeing in the hospitals in Ventura County, CA. This news story is very revealing and the public should have the right to know, but stories like this will never be reported on by a local news outlet that is corporately owned. The public's right to know and informed consent are anathemas to the corporate news media.
"I’m tired of all the B.S. that’s going on,” he told the Guardian. “It’s crazy how nobody questions anything anymore."
"We’ve been having a lot of younger people come in,” Sam says. “We’re seeing a lot of strokes, a lot of heart attacks."
One thing the vaccine causes is thrombosis, clotting. Here you have a 38-year-old woman who was double-vaccinated and she’s having strokes they can’t explain. None of the doctors relates it to the vaccine. It’s garbage. It’s absolute garbage.
"The doctors don’t question anymore,” he says. “None question whether the vaccine causes myocarditis, pericarditis and the strokes that are coming in. If they don’t toe the line, they could lose their medical license. They do what they do because they have bills to pay. I’m disappointed because you have a handful of doctors who will question the narrative, but the rest go along."
The hospital vaccine mandates have led to an exodus of experienced nursing staff who refused the jab – something no hospital can afford to have happen.
"Because we’re short-staffed, they are hiring new nurses and I’m seeing mistakes in the hospital that are not even funny — medical errors,” Dana says. “[Hospitals] are trying to fill these spots and are getting any warm body to do the bare minimum. I think it’s terrible what’s happening."
Follow The Money
The local government pushed for the jab by directing taxpayer monies to local media sources. The result was that the local news sources all extolled the benefits of being vaccinated while ignoring the consequences of vaccine mandates and any adverse side effects.
An investigation by the Conejo Guardian shows that Ventura County paid $1.8 million to local media sources to push its message about Covid mandates and vaccinations. The large sums of money given to newspapers by the County government call into question the independence and neutrality of these media sources during one of the most tumultuous periods in the region’s history.
No mention was made in the newspaper’s pages of people losing jobs or standing up for principles of medical privacy, basic freedoms or civil rights protections during the pandemic. The massive disruptions taking place in families, schools and businesses have been virtually ignored by the County-funded Acorn and other local media.
