News Corp: Half of all covid ICU patients in NSW are vaccinated

Or, as the company’s style-guide requires them to put it: Half of NSW ICU cases unvaccinated.

Brad “Health” Hazzard ignored the embarrassing truth and got staff to find a better statistic:

[Mr] Hazzard said that all of the six people in the ICU ward at Lismore Base hospital – in NSW’s antivax heartland in the Northern Rivers – were unvaccinated.

One day this week we had six people in this intensive care unit and all six were unvaccinated,” he said.

ELSEWHERE: The NT records a second virus death. The woman in her 40s was fully vaccinated.

    Notice that Health Hazzard didn’t say whether or not the six were in ICU because of Covid or something else – a key omission in IMO.
    If they were not in ICU because of Covid it makes his point meaningless and disingenuous.

    The news media — the place we used to go to find out stuff — has become the primary deviser of deceptive statistical tricks designed to hoodwink the public, thanks to Kung Flu.

    Government — whose only unswerving goal is be bigger this time next year — has never hat a more reliable ally in helping it fulfil that aim than the news media.

    And no command needed to be issued as 90%+ of journalists are Big Government collectvists who loathe the public and its quaint traditions like democracy.

    Lismore! Probably all hippies with comorbidities like not bathing and dreadlocks. SARS CON2 couldn’t survive them.

    Reporting these stats on the ABC news last night, commentators were dancing between the terms ‘unvaccinated’ and ‘not fully vaccinated’ with a nimbleness worthy of Torvill and Dean.
