How The Fake Progressive Media Gaslit The Public On The Dangers of Covid Hospitalization Protocols And Deaths

Last Updated on June 5, 2022 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • Progressive media outlets have repeated the false claims by the medical establishment.
  • A second significant role of progressive media has been to critique the public.


In an October 2021 article in the progressive outlet Mother Jones, they presented both false information and the view of the corrupt medical establishment on the effectiveness of the US covid treatment protocol.

False Framing or Claim #1: The Mother Jones Article Begins By Presenting Accurate Claims Of Protesters As Conspiracy Theory

Greg Johnson is standing on the corner of State Street in suburban Salt Lake City, Utah, holding a neatly stenciled sign that says, “COVID-19 Protocols Killed My Uncle.” Behind him looms the Intermountain Medical Center, the largest hospital in the region. Johnson is one of about 30 people who’ve come to protest Saturday because they believe that the hospital is murdering people with the coronavirus by putting them on ventilators, injecting them with the anti-viral Remdesivir, and refusing to give them intravenous vitamin C or the deworming drug Ivermectin. – Mother Jones

Everything Greg Johnson just stated was true. We verified this is precisely what the US covid treatment protocol often does in the article How The US Covid Treatment Protocol Maximized Hospital Admissions and Deaths.

Remdesivir is a hazardous drug that kills a significant percentage of those that are placed on the drug. This is shown clearly in the article How Gilead Brought Off the NIH’s Support of Remdesivir.

Finally, Vitamin C and Ivermectin are more effective against covid than Remdesivir, which can be verified in the article Why Are Some Natural Supplements Treatments Against Covid?

False Framing or Claim #2: ICUs Are Filled Because of Covid?

Only 66 percent of Utah residents over 12 have been vaccinated, which is on par with the rate nationally, but that figure drops closer to 30 percent in many rural counties where cases have been spiking. Hospital ICUs have been running at capacity since the late summer, as the number of patients being treated for COVID has jumped 300 percent since June. Just in the week ending October 15, 75 people in the state succumbed to the virus, and the Utah Department of Health estimates that in the past month, unvaccinated people in the state were 12.6 times more likely to die from COVID than vaccinated residents. – Mother Jones

Mother Jones leaves out that ICUs are often over capacity because private hospitals have cut capacity, and they cut capacity right through the pandemic.

This topic is very well explained in the following video.

This reduction in capacity is never covered by the establishment or progressive media. Private hospitals are never held accountable for profit maximization, and instead, the blame is placed on patients. 

Secondly, hospitals don’t do much for patients that have covid.

Their protocol which the corrupt NIH has given hospitals includes Remdesivir and ventilators, has a high likelihood of killing patients, which the hospital will then count as a covid death. They even withhold anti-inflammatories, designed to maximize hospital admissions, as is covered in the article How The NIH Maximizes Covid Hospitalizations By Not Recommending Anti-Inflammatories.

The statistics on deaths from covid is entirely unreliable as the tests for covid do not work with much accuracy, as is covered in the article Understanding The PCR Test and How There Was Never a Reliable Test for Covid, and the health authorities have been falsifying the differences between the vaccinated and unvaccinated since the beginning of the pandemic. The CDC went so far as to change how “being vaccinated” was counted so that deaths from the vaccine could be tabulated as covid deaths, as is covered in the article How The CDC Rigged the Count of Adverse Reactions From The Covid Vaccines With A 14 Day Lag. The CDC has provided guidance that no matter what a person dies from, if they tested positive for covid, they have the cause of death listed as covid. Each covid death brings more revenue to the hospital from Medicare. This is explained in the article How the Deaths from Covid 19 Was Irresponsibly Exaggerated.

The statement about most deaths being from the unvaccinated cannot be true, as it is clear from the studies submitted to the FDA by Pfizer and Moderna that the covid vaccines do not work, as you can read in the article How Effective Are The Covid 19 Vaccines?, and in the article How The Covid Vaccines Damage The Body.

In addition to online databases, safety issues with vaccines have come in from whistleblowers worldwide. And the FDA has nothing to say about this. As is stated in the video, the objective is to sweep the adverse reactions to the vaccines under the rug. Throughout the pandemic, the FDA has suppressed the information about the safety problems with the covid vaccines, as is covered in the article How The FDA Did Nothing to Verify the Long Term Safety Of The Covid Vaccines.

False Framing or Claim #3: Mother Jones Proved Where The Deaths Are Coming From?

The deaths, however, aren’t changing the minds of the most committed anti-vaccine activists and others involved with local “patriot” groups. After successfully fending off most mask mandates in schools and elsewhere, they’ve turned their focus to the hospitals, where unvaccinated people have been turning up with COVID and discovering that the hospital won’t give them the malaria pills or horse dewormer they think will save them even as they reject proven therapies.

Johnson, an electrical engineer who works in the medical field, says he’s about to lose his job because he refuses to get vaccinated. He has never been to a protest before, but he heard about this one from People’s Rights, the group founded by the far-right activist Ammon Bundy, who’s now running for governor of Idaho. Johnson says that a month ago, he was golfing with his unvaccinated uncle, Dale Grant, a week before Grant was hospitalized with COVID. He says doctors gave his uncle Remdesivir, which Johnson believes destroyed his kidneys. Grant’s son demanded that the hospital give Grant intravenous vitamins, but by then, Johnson says, it was too late. Before he got COVID, Johnson says, his 82-year-old uncle was as “healthy as an ox.” – Mother Jones

Johnson is very likely correct on the topic of his uncle. That is what Remdesivir does. Remdesivir is so bad for the organs of patients that the duration of the treatment was cut down from 5 days to 10 days. Remdesivir is the approved treatment because Gilead Science paid off members of the FDA and NIH to approve the drug. The financial conflicts between those on the approving committee for the FDA are clear and published.

As for the deaths, we dispute the causes of these deaths, and mother Jones thinks they are covid. The reality is that the average age of death for those listed as dying from covid is 81.5, which means the virus is weak, as is covered in the article How The Average Age of Mortality from Covid is 81.5.

Johnson’s uncle was 82, and just by being 82, he had a significantly diminished immune system. However, no one knows if his uncle was killed by covid or by the NIH’s treatment protocol implemented by the hospital.

False Framing or Claim #4: Mother Jones Knows Ventilators Are Not Killing People?

He says he also lost another friend to the virus three weeks ago. This time, the hospital put his friend on a ventilator, which he says “destroyed his lungs and he died.” So now he’s in front of the hospital trying to spread the message that hospitals kill. Johnson says he’s not anti-vaccine; he and the other protesters are just interested in freedom of choice. “We’re not ignorant people,” he says. “We’re just wondering why it’s not OK to question.” – Mother Jones

It’s not ok to question because the medical establishment, pharmaceutical companies, and apparently Mother Jones do not want their treatment protocol questioned, nor the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines questioned.

We covered in the article How The US Covid Treatment Protocol Maximized Hospital Admissions and Deaths, that ventilators kill a high percentage of the people that are placed on them and that ventilators do very little for patients but net hospitals around $40,000 per patient, which is why hospitals are so intent on placing covid patients on ventilators even though there is little evidence they do anything for those patients.

False Framing or Claim #5: Medical Staff Working Hard Means Critiques of Treatment Protocols Cannot Be Tolerated?

A spokesman for Intermountain Healthcare writes in an email, “Activities such as this are very disappointing to the heroic doctors, nurses, therapists, and other healthcare workers who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic to serve our communities.” – Mother Jones

How much the medical workers work is not relevant to whether treatment protocols are helping patients. The medical staff at hospitals that have offered alternative treatments have been fired, and the medical staff has been reduced to robots and is puppeteered by the NIH. How hard the medical staff works is a red herring argument.

False Framing or Claim #6: Fauci And Gates Are Not Killing People?

Similar protests were slated for hospitals all across the state Saturday, including one in St. George, in Southern Utah, where protesters have been galvanized by the story of an anti-vaccine activist who lost both of her parents to COVID last month. Kasandra Leavitt is a well-known fixture on the local anti-vaccine circuit as the driver of the “truth truck,” a custom Ford pickup tricked out with giant digital billboards that display messages like “Big Pharma is Making a Killing,” “Mass Non Compliance IS THE only way to END THIS” or ” Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates for Prison 2021.” – Mother Jones

Which of these digital bumper stickers is false? Let us review each.

  • Big Pharma is Making a Killing: Is pharma not making a killing? They have made billions of dollars for vaccines and drugs that are not effective and damage people who take them. Our Rating is True.
  • Mass Non-Compliance IS THE only way to END THIS: It will continue if the patients don’t revolt. If we get covid, we are not going to the hospital. Our Rating is True.
  • Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates for Prison 2021: Sounds excellent. Bill Gates-funded many areas of science and media that supported the pandemic’s creation, as we cover in the article Pandemic In A Box: The Specific Steps Used to Create the Covid Pandemic. Fauci, the CDC, the WHO, and others tried multiple times to create a pandemic for several decades, including bird flu and swine flu, and they figured out that they needed to create viral tests that produce many false positives. Bill Gates’s funding created the covid PCR test, as is covered in the article How Bill Gates Funded Science Fraud in the PCR Test Development. Our Rating is True. Fauci and Gates should go to prison. 

False Framing or Claim #7: Mother Jones Knows Remdesivir and Ventilators Don’t Kill Patients?

Earlier this month, Leavitt claimed on Facebook that the IHC hospital in St. George had killed her parents, who died within minutes of each other in late September. She wrote that when her mother entered the hospital, the doctor planned to put her on a ventilator and administer Remdesivir. “I gave him a Big Hell NO,” Leavitt wrote. In response, she wrote, the doctor told her that he was going to write “Do not resuscitate” in her mother’s chart, asking, “Is that what you want?” She says the doctor then informed her that if she didn’t want to follow the protocol, her mother didn’t qualify for ICU care, and he moved her to another floor of the hospital to die without receiving Leavitt’s treatments of choice, such as IV vitamins and the deworming drug Ivermectin. – Mother Jones

Has Mother Jones analyzed the covid treatment protocol used by US hospitals?

We ask because it does not appear that Mother Jones is known if this treatment protocol is effective or not effective. The kill rate for Remdesivir is roughly similar to if the MD brought out a revolver and put three bullets in it, then spun the cylinder and then pointed at your relative. Under that mathematical likelihood, would you not be justified in tackling the MD?

Mother Jones may want to look up the topic of informed consent. We cover the violation of informed consent in the article How The US Medical Establishment Violated Informed Consent and Coerced Covid Vaccination.

The quote continues.

“Why do hospitals deny proven therapies? Deny patients IV vitamins?” she continued in her Facebook post. “This is a very dark time in the history of healthcare. The equivalent of medical malpractice. They overtreat with deadly drugs. Remdesevier and ventilation. If a patient refuses this protocol, the hospital will then under treat wait and watch the patient die. It’s barbaric, bad medicine.” – Mother Jones

That is easy to answer. The hospitals have no choice in the matter related to covid treatment protocols. They are required to follow the NIH’s protocols and to maximize revenues. If Medicare pays $40,000 to place covid patients on ventilators, they will be placed on ventilators. Private hospitals, in particular, have no other objective higher than profit maximization. Treatment of conditions is entirely secondary to profits for the hospital. Hospitals are so focused on profits they won’t pay 5 cents per surgical mask to US mask manufacturers and buy 1 cent masks from China.

The quote continues.

In August, Dalley aired a show detailing how she supposedly saved her diabetic husband from murderous hospital staff when he got “COVID pneumonia.” She claims he entered the hospital with extremely low oxygen levels after the Ivermectin he was taking didn’t cure him. (It was just too low a dose, she concluded.) Doctors wanted to put him on a ventilator. Instead, he walked out of the ICU after just three-and-a-half days because when he was admitted, she had demanded that the hospital give him massive, intravenous doses of vitamin C. She provides instructions on her website for people who want to fight a hospital COVID protocol, including advice like, “Don’t let them do Remdesivir. It can cause organ failure,” and “REFUSE THE VENT. Over and over and over and over. Be firm. Be nice. Be firm.” – Mother Jones

There were other treatments aside from Ivermectin that could have been used. Vitamin D (most people are deficient in Vitamin D, which is covered in the article The Cover-Up by the Medical Establishment on Vitamin D Levels, monoclonal antibodies, etc. The items one should use are covered in the article Why Are Some Natural Supplements Treatments Against Covid? However, you won’t get any of these things from hospitals.

Onc again, patients have the right to deny treatments they disagree with. The hospitals, the NIH, and Mother Jones can complain about it as much as they like, but that is the patients’ right.

False Framing or Claim #8: Hospitals Don’t Have A Financial Incentive to Place Covid Patients on Hospitals?

Protesters on State Street Saturday echoed Dalley’s theories about “what is actually killing people in the hospital.” Several told me that the hospital had a financial incentive to put people on ventilators because it gets much more federal money for the treatment than it would for, say, vitamin infusions. But the spread of such ideas has created more headaches for Utah’s frontline healthcare professionals than just the inconvenience of a few protesters greeting them at the hospital gates. – Mother Jones

Is Mother Jones saying hospitals do not have an incentive to place covid patients on ventilators because it is a matter of fact that they are paid roughly $40,000 to do so? However, Mother Jones appears to imply that this statement of fact is a conspiracy theory.

Curiously, rather than focus on the deadly covid treatment protocol is, Mother Jones is about to get into how difficult this has made life for healthcare professionals.

False Framing or Claim #9: Covid Patients Should Not Fight Deadly Treatments?

In September, the medical director of Park City Hospital in Summit County, which has the highest vaccination rate in the entire state, told the county health board that patients coming into the hospital with COVID were behaving very differently than they had in the past. “We’re seeing hate in their eyes,” Dr. Wing Province told the board, according to the Park Record. Nurses and doctors working in the overburdened ICU were dealing with hostile patients who often didn’t believe they were infected or demanded unproven treatments. Some had even become violent because they believed, as the protesters do, that the hospital was trying to kill them. – Mother Jones

These are no unproven treatments. The treatments in the US treatment protocol are unproven. You can check the many studies that support these treatments at the website, which is far more authoritative and transparent than anything done by the FDA. The wonderful thing is that you don’t need to go to a hospital to get any of these treatments. Hospitals do virtually nothing good for covid patients, even denying them anti-inflammatories, and they kill many covid patients with their protocol.

The quote continues.

“We had a gal who came in whose oxygen levels were critically low, to the point where she could nearly die if we didn’t give her oxygen,” Province said. “And as our nurses went to her aid to put on oxygen, to put in an IV, and try to stabilize her, she being COVID-positive, spit in our nurse’s face, kicked our nurse in the chest with her foot, and scratched all the technicians and everyone else that were coming in to try to put in an IV.” He described a patient who left the hospital early against medical advice whose family is now suing IHC because doctors refused to give the patient Ivermectin.

Yes, by continually lying to patients, hospitals have lost their credibility. This is a natural response. I have been taking Ivermectin myself, as I cover in the article How to Use Ivermectin or Protect Against the Covid Vaccines. This is not to protect against covid, as covid is not a threat to me, but to combat the effects of the vaccines which I, unfortunately, took because I wanted to travel. I did not want to go through getting a prescription, so I have been taking cattle Ivermectin for several months, and I have had no problems.

False Framing or Claim #10: Asymptomatic Carriers Transmit Covid?

…a Costco shopper named Daniel Rodriguez stops by to get a better look at her sign. “’My body my choice,’” he reads aloud, and then tells her, “My choice is to get vaccinated.”

He tells the woman and her friend that his daughter works in the hospital and has seen first-hand all the people dying from COVID. He and his wife had been infected last year by their five-year-old granddaughter. “My granddaughter almost killed my wife,” he explains. – Mother Jones

That is an improbable scenario as asymptomatic carriers do not transmit the virus, covered in the article How Pharma and Media Lied About Asymptomatic Transmission to Promote Vaccines.

False Framing or Claim #11: Ivermectin Does Not Work?

One of the anti-vaccine activists asks Rodriguez if he’s from Mexico. When he says yes, she enthuses, “I buy my Ivermectin from Mexico!” She then proceeds to tell him about the drug’s alleged benefits for prevention of a virus that she claimed was released by humans “to harm us.” She and her friend continue to pummel Rodriguez with anti-vaccine and “pro-freedom” propaganda. He listens politely, and later tells me he talked to all of the protesters on the sidewalk after seeing their signs. He told them he agreed that they had the right to avoid vaccines or masks, but, “You might get somebody sick. You don’t have that right.” – Mother Jones

It seems like Mother Jones cannot be bothered to check the many supportive studies of Ivermectin that are available at

Furthermore, why is being against the vaccine propaganda? The vaccines do not work. Secondly, why is being pro-freedom propaganda? People have the right not to accept a vaccine. If the vaccines protected the vaccinated from getting covid, this would not be a problem. Still, they do not, as is covered in the article How The Covid Vaccines Do Nothing to Stop The Vaccinated From Getting Or Transmitting Covid.


This is a highly deceptive article. It does not acknowledge that recently before this article was written, the established media lampooned the treatments listed here. As with other establishment sources, the article does the bidding of pharmaceutical interests by promoting profit-maximizing treatments to pharma. The author ignores treatments that have proven effective, like Ivermectin, Zinc, and other even more effective treatments than Ivermectin. The article uses what the laughingstock and highly corrupt FDA has approved as some gold standard, without pointing out that the FDA approves whatever the drug companies want them to approve. The FDA has zero independence from the pharmaceutical industry.

This author may know this, so this author is lying to the reader and covering for the medical establishment. When doctors and, in this case, a nurse write articles, it is impossible to tell in most cases that these medical professionals don’t simply work directly for the pharmaceutical companies. This very rightly should lead to a crisis of confidence in the medical establishment.

Be Notified When Our Upcoming Subscription Website on Ivermectin and Other Medical Treatments is Ready

Ivermectin has many treatment applications outside of its approved use (as an antiparasitical. These treatments include cancer, covid, immunity, and more. And due to perverse financial incentives, many of these applications are hidden from the public.

Due to the many questions we receive on Ivermectin, we are now working on a subscription website that covers everything related to Ivermectin ranging from its many health improvement applications to dosages, and contrasting this with the false information presented on Ivermectin by medical authorities. The site will be ready soon as we are making good progress. We will also be adding questions from subscribers answered as customized articles.
