Did you hear? There’s a new pandemic on the rise. This one infected 500 million people last year. It killed one million children. Killed them dead. I was talking to Michael Spencer over at InternetMonk.Com and he mentioned that 2,800 people died yesterday from it.
But I didn’t see any mention of by Dr. Gupta on CNN yesterday.
Guess he was too busy running up and down the empty hallways of a that Mexican hospital with his hand-held camera, bringing us the latest in alarmist headline news.
Of course the other reason the media probably didn’t mention it was because it isn’t a threat to Americans. This totally treatable and preventable disease primarily kills children in sub-tropic regions.
But there’s no mention of it on your nightly news shows.
Because at our very core, we’re simply narcissistic Americans worried and alarmed only when the disease threatens us.
Not innocent children.
