The media push to discredit Hydroxychloroquine
Hydroxychloroquine is an anti-malaria drug. It's been around for about 6 decades. It is already on the shelf. Based on limited testing in the fight against the China virus it has shown promising results. As a matter of fact last week Tucker Carlson had somebody on his show who said there was a small test of the drug in France involving the China virus. Supposedly 40 out of 40 coronavirus patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine in the French trial recovered from the disease. A 100% success ratio!
The President is also a believer. He recently said "It's been around for a long time, so we know if things don't go as planned it's not going to kill anybody...It's shown very, very encouraging early results, and we're going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately."
That was enough for the left wing media! Since then they have been trying to discredit the drug. Most notably, playing up the story of the idiot who died from taking what was essentially Aquarium cleaner which contained elements of the drug.
Here is how the Huffington Post reported on the story:
"The couple, both in their 60s, had not been diagnosed with COVID-19, but the woman said they were worried of contracting the disease and had taken the aquarium product as a preventative measure.
The product they consumed contained the same active ingredient as the two anti-malaria drugs Trump referred to — but unlike the medicine taken by humans, the product they ingested is used to get rid of algae and a parasite that causes a condition known as white spot disease in fish. According to The New York Times , prices for the aquarium product “have spiked during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Here is the devious CNN using the words of Dr Fauci, who once said there was no magic drug out there:
So there you have it. If the President is for it the media is against it, even if it will save American lives.
Their hatred has no limits.
