"good standard actuarial determination from the government are, when they rely upon local sources for basic determinations?" May be disguising what's really going on, how closely connected events have become.. "The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Tracker site is a major project displaying COVID-19-related statistics. ... I’ve read and understood their approach and methodology...." He says.

He refers to valuable reference points. New York Times' Github site and the COVID Tracking Project which is operated in association with Atlantic Magazine. The COVID Tracking Project, as far as I know, does not have a Github, but they offer a data portal. Covid Tracking project data portal

"Australia and New Zealand to South Korea and now China, highly transmissible variants such as Omicron and BA.2 at least, in some locations exaggerate existing vaccine durability challenges intensifying localized or regional viral surges. " "As reported by TS News, just over a week ago regions in Australia experience growing numbers of not only breakthrough infections but also breakthrough hospitalizations and even deaths, such as in the Australian state of Queensland. TS News has been reporting on a disturbing trend in some heavily vaccinated populations such as in Australia, where SARS-CoV-2 infections, hospitalizations, and even death are higher now than at any time during the pandemic."

How high? On the order of 40,000 deaths per quarter.
" Twice as many people have died from COVID-19 this year in Australia (and the year is less than four months old) than in the previous two years there. How is that possible? "

"How did it Age?" on the Internet, on Permanent Record

Having reviewed a few highlights of the then-secret April 30 2021 pfizer report, I was curious to see how well that corresponded to what the media was telling us then. Were they talking about the safety of the vaccine in Pregnant and Nursing women?

Web MD, just a few days before says : "Pfizer is now studying its two-dose vaccine in 4,000 pregnant and breastfeeding women to see how safe, tolerated, and robust their immune response is.... the preliminary results won’t be available until the end of the year, a Pfizer spokesperson says." Emphasis added.

Included in the article is the sort of propaganda which lead us to this point: Twitter image of couple, masked, outdoors promoting vaccinating pregnant mothers.

So phizer was lying. What else is new?

If we want to talk about fake news, it is meet to review the record. Our horizon should not be whether someone being right or wrong.

Sometimes those deceptions are well prepared in advance. This is what they call conspiratorial thinking, the implication being that it does not comport with parsimony. This rhetoric would not stand up so well if they stated their implication.

2017 too will be a classic for examination. Then, trial balloons were being set up for insinuating that Trump was involved with the Russians. [In a way that was never really articulated.] [This article from "The Guardian"]3 is emblematic of how news operates. enter image description here

The link discusses the Trump-Russia inquiry which was a manufactured scandal. This is not just in hindsight. 15 days after the article was published, my knowledge of outside events was confined to three radio channels. All I was given was propaganda and I knew it was bullshit and I didn't have to search a fact checker to do it. []
