You saw it here on Not the Bee, and you may have seen it on Fox News or other conservative sites.
A Johns Hopkins meta-analysis of multiple studies showed that the Covid-19 lockdowns did pretty much nothing to stop Covid:
You know who didn't see this study though?
The other half of the country. The half that relies on mainstream corporate media for their information.
All of the major news networks and biggest papers haven't done anything on this major study that changes EVERYTHING about the response to Covid.
However, the Johns Hopkins study received no mention on any of the five liberal networks this week. According to Grabien transcripts, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC all ignored the anti-lockdown findings after having spent much of the pandemic shaming red states with minimal restrictions and events deemed by critics as "superspreaders."
It wasn't just the networks avoiding the study. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press, Reuters, USA Today, Axios, Politico among other outlets also turned a blind eye to the findings, according to search results.
This is maybe the most important study, showing that lockdowns did absolutely nothing as we enter the THIRD YEAR OF TWO WEEKS TO FLATTEN THE CURVE.
None of it mattered. None of it worked. And you have places like Australia and New Zealand which are still implementing pointless and destructive lockdowns TODAY!
The researchers concluded that limiting gatherings may have actually increased COVID-19 mortality.
"[Shelter-in-place orders] may isolate an infected person at home with his/her family where he/she risks infecting family members with a higher viral load, causing more severe illness," the researchers wrote.
"But often, lockdowns have limited peoples' access to safe (outdoor) places such as beaches, parks, and zoos, or included outdoor mask mandates or strict outdoor gathering restrictions, pushing people to meet at less safe (indoor) places."
The lockdowns may have made it worse!
They locked you in your home. They destroyed THOUSANDS of small businesses. They kept you out of church. And for what?
This should be the number one headline story everywhere, but it isn't.
