(ZH) — Former Congressman Ron Paul has highlighted this week that a handful of mainstream media articles have actually begun to break ranks in terms of questioning key aspects of vaccine effectiveness and mandates, particularly when it comes to the controversial boosters now being widely proposed.
“Even mainstream media is now asking big questions about the vaccines” Wednesday’s Liberty Report featured. A couple of recent headlines in Bloomberg and BBC were unexpected in terms the criticism reflected and somewhat skeptical pushback against the ‘consensus narrative’.

The first news article that Congressman Paul and co-host Daniel McAdams highlight is from Bloomberg.
Here’s how the very unexpected Bloomberg article, which was published this past weekend, began:
Anecdotes tell us what the data can’t: Vaccinated people appear to be getting the coronavirus at a surprisingly high rate. But exactly how often isn’t clear, nor is it certain how likely they are to spread the virus to others.
Though it is evident vaccination still provides powerful protection against the virus, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought.

And the same day as the BBG headline, there was this from UK government-funded BBC…
“Is catching Covid now better than more vaccine?”
The story began:
It is now a serious question that has implications for whether children should ever be vaccinated. And whether we use the virus or booster shots to top up immunity in adults. Both have become contentious issues.
“We could be digging ourselves into a hole, for a very long time, where we think we can only keep Covid away by boosting every year,” Prof Eleanor Riley, an immunologist from the University of Edinburgh, told me.

A mere month or more ago such statements found in these couple of mainstream media articles would get a person possibly suspended from Facebook or Twitter.
But they underscore just how ‘experimental’ the whole scenario is, despite governments in a number of places now mandating COVID-19 vaccines, with boosters just around the corner and already being implemented in some places (with Israel previously being the first) on a mass scale.

Soon we could see health officials pushing a second booster, a third, and on and on it will go…

Even The Daily Beast, which has spent much of the pandemic shaming the ‘vaccine hesitant’ is now admitting that “ultra-vaxxed” Israel is now seeing numbers of infections skyrocket…
“I don’t want to frighten you,” COVID-19 czar Dr. Salman Zarka told the Israeli parliament. “But this is the data. Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie.”

It appears that some in the media are actually beginning to acknowledge the “rush” for boosters is far too premature, and too little is yet known.
