Billionaire globalist Bill Gates lamented that he and Dr. Anthony Fauci have become the target of ‘baseless anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories’ that have gained ground in recent months.
“The whole digital media space where people are dealing with the bad news, the pandemic, has spun up a lot of conspiracy theories,” said Gates Wednesday on CNBC. “And the two people who are most targeted in those are Dr. Fauci and myself, in terms of, ‘Do we have some sort of maligned reason to think vaccines are important in general?’”
Gates later slammed Americans’ attitude toward masks and even equated that asking people to wear masks was similar to asking them to wear clothing.
“We have to admit that the scientific community, in the early stage of the infection, we thought this was about coughing, we didn’t know the simple masks would provide so much benefit,” said Gates. “Given that we tell people to wear clothes, I don’t think of it as some ultra-important freedom thing that there’s another part of your body – at least for the duration of the pandemic – we’re asking you to cover up.”
“Mask compliance in the United States is quite poor.”
Regarding public sentiment on Gates and Covid vaccines, remember that just days ago, Gates said the world wouldn’t return to normal until a ‘Zero COVID’ situation was achieved.
This would require “a lot of people” to take a second “super-effective” coronavirus vaccine that could be years away.
“The only way we’ll get completely back to normal is by having, maybe not the first generation of vaccines, but eventually a vaccine that is super-effective, and that a lot of the people take, and that we get the disease eliminated on a global basis,” said Gates to NBC.
“That is where we can finally start taking all the problems that have been created — in education, mental health — and start to build back in a positive way.”
It’s important to note that Bill Gates’ influence over the media was exposed earlier this year when a nonprofit group found that the Gates Foundation donated over $250 million to major media outlets.
The finding helps explain the positive coverage Gates has received during recent months, particularly over the promotion of his vaccine agenda, Columbia Journalism Review reports, especially considering that he is known to the public for his work with Microsoft rather than as an infectious disease expert like Fauci.
“I recently examined nearly twenty thousand charitable grants the Gates Foundation had made through the end of June and found more than $250 million going toward journalism,” said CJR’s Tim Schwab. “Recipients included news operations like the BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, ProPublica, National Journal, The Guardian, Univision, Medium, the Financial Times, The Atlantic, the Texas Tribune, Gannett, Washington Monthly, Le Monde, and the Center for Investigative Reporting.”
Schwab points out the ethical dilemma of billionaire philanthropists bankrolling the news; an arrangement that allows media giants to push their agenda and control the public’s perception of them.
“As philanthropists increasingly fill in the funding gaps at news organizations—a role that is almost certain to expand in the media downturn following the coronavirus pandemic—an underexamined worry is how this will affect the ways newsrooms report on their benefactors,” said Schwab. “Nowhere does this concern loom larger than with the Gates Foundation, a leading donor to newsrooms and a frequent subject of favorable news coverage.”
