“Scientists admit the swine flu was a hoax.”I won’t be holding my breath. At least I won’t unless I am around someone who has the symptoms of this terrible scourge of humanity.
Have you forgotten already? We were brought to the edge of lining up at government centers to have our vaccinations. Some were thinking it would need to be at gun point. The scientists knew what was best for us. If we did not get vaccinated then we would die.
Of course if you went beyond the screaming headlines you saw that the statistics showed no such impending disaster. A few people died but they tended to be people who had one foot in the grave anyway. The numbers of actual infection were lower than the normal, annual number of flu sufferers.
Some day they will be right. It has happened before and with modern transportation it could very well happen again. The reason headlines like this are so dangerous is that next time we will be less likely to believe them.
I would still like to see a retraction.
