Can You Be the Giant-Killer Who Brings Down the Pharma Colussus?
Greg, sometimes it takes a funny man to be the right kind of hero.
Think of all the action heroes we love from the movies, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, John McClain (Bruce Willis in the Die Hard movies), or even my personal favorite, Daredevil.
You’ve got the humor. Now, do you have the kind of heart necessary for this fight? As Bill Nye might say (before he got old and creepy) “Consider the following!”
This is what Robert Kennedy, Jr. said at the Revolution for Truth Rally on March 31, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
Kennedy said, “The press has been compromised, 5.4 billion dollars annually [from the pharmaceutical industry]. I talked to Roger Ailes, who I’ve known since I was seventeen years old. He was very sympathetic with this issue. He saw the film, Trace Amounts. I said to him, ‘I just want to go on one of your shows. Nobody will allow me to talk about this or debate me.’
He said to me, ‘I can’t allow you on any of them. I would have to fire any of my hosts who allowed you on my station. Because,’ he said, ‘my news division gets up to 70% of advertising revenues during non-election years from the pharmaceutical companies.’ And if you turn on the evening news, you will see it’s just a vehicle for selling pharmaceutical ads. So the press is gone.” (Kennedy speech at the Revolution for Truth Rally, Washington D.C., March 31, 2017, www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KEoMNxxJRc, 31:40-31:30)
Greg, you know that’s not journalism.
That’s corruption. That’s evil. That’s God, the devil and the fate of humanity hanging in the balance. Just the kind of fight for a guy like you. Save the world, give us a funny one-liner, then head out to the bar for a beer. You’ve seen it a thousand times in the movies. You know what you’re supposed to do.
I say this as a friend. I have generally liked Fox News. I believe that no other network has been as fearless in taking on the liberal narrative of the mainstream media. I consider myself a libertarian. If it’s big, it’s probably bad. If force has to be used to get people to do something, it probably means their liberty is being taken away. Show me a big government, and I will tell you it’s probably corrupt. Show me a big company, and I will say the same. I strongly believe in the idea that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.
If I have liked Fox News, I have LOVED your irreverent humor.
I must confess that when I watch your show, I often have fantasies of sitting with your fellow guests on the couch and when you get to me you say, “Kent Heckenlively, he’s so sharp that butcher knives live in fear of him!”
Like you, I don’t follow the pack. I was encouraged to read a statement from you recently in which you said, “I became a conservative by being around liberals and I became a libertarian by being around conservatives. You realize that there’s something distinctly in common between the two groups, the left and the right; the worst part of each of them is the moralizing.”
You will need such courage if you are to follow my advice.
But I think you are up to the challenge. You see, I think really funny people are usually the most courageous. Left to my own devices, and without an evil of unparalleled proportions bearing down on humanity, I’d probably strike most people as a lovable goof-ball like you.
You know Fox News is in a time of upheaval. Roger Ailes is gone and the Murdoch kids are trying to figure out what to do with you, as if you are an island of misfit toys. I don’t believe that the rule quoted by Robert Ailes to Kennedy is applicable to you.
I believe you could bring up the vaccine/autism issue and you would not be fired. You could truly be the warrior who delivers millions of American families and tens of millions across the world from evil. Maybe I’m playing the job of your news producer, but here are a few stories you might want to have your researchers work on.
Why? As BolenReport Publisher Tim Bolen keeps saying:
“The Vaccine Issue is a microcosm of what is wrong with US Health Care. And the US Health Care issue is a microcosm of what is wrong with America…
Figure out how to fix the first one and you have the mechanism to solve the second…”
What You could do Greg:
1. An in-depth investigation of the so-called “Vaccine Court” as well as a breakdown of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, using your top legal minds, like Judge Andrew Napolitano to discuss whether the court is properly functioning.
2. You could discuss the case of whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, who alleges the hiding of data on a CDC study involving the increased incidence of autism in African-American males following earlier administration of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine. That story alone is Tuskegee on steroids.
3. I encourage you to do a story on the Simpsonwood Conference of 2000, in which the very top government and industry scientists colluded to cover-up a link between mercury and the development of autism. I’m sure Robert Kennedy, Jr. would be happy to assist your researchers by pointing them to the relevant documents.
4. How about looking at why the information contained in the Vaccine-Safety data-link, the information from nine MASSIVE health organizations which has tracked EVERY vaccination and health outcome since January of 1991 is locked up tighter than the hacking codes used by the Central Intelligence Agency.
For the sake of argument, let’s say I’m wrong about whether or not you’d lose your job at Fox News.
Let’s say you get fired. Is that such a bad outcome? You could easily land a much better job someplace else, and I’m not talking about CNN or MSNBC.
Things are always changing in the world, or as economist Joseph Schumpeter called it, there is a process of “creative destruction.”
When I look at the media landscape I think every news outlet is avoiding this vaccine issue story. And yet, the desire of millions of parents and families for it to be told remains.
What will be the result?
We will be looking at either an evolution, or a revolution. There is no other choice. I hope you don’t mind, but I’m asking my readers to email or call to tell you that you should cover this issue. I am encouraging them to be civil and yet passionate, because I believe this is a story which needs to be in the public forum.
Readers, you can send an email to Greg at comments@foxnewsinsider or call 1-888-369-4762.
