The Media is the Virus

by Nowick Gray


‘For tyranny to maneuver freely under benevolent disguises of safety and security it must have the consent of the people, which can only be artificially manufactured with lies and propaganda that are unvarnished by truth.’ —Good Citizen

While the litany of media lies continues, each day brings revelations of past untruths revealed. The laboratory origin of Covid, the Hunter Biden laptop, the PCR test scam, miscounting Covid deaths, the pseudoscience of masks and lockdowns, vaccine safety and efficacy, Ukraine biolabs and neo-Nazis… all these stories once discounted as false eventually come to light, just like the Iraq WMDs, 911’s controlled demolition, or the Deep State murder of JFK—which spawned the CIA’s original all-purpose “conspiracy theory” smokescreen in the first place.

The mass media leads public opinion where it wants to go, in the service of its paymasters.

‘FOIA Request Reveals Biden Admin Paid $1 Billion to Corporate Media Outlets to Push Covid Vaccines

‘According to FOIA documents obtained by the Blaze, the current administration paid the whole of corporate media, including the so-called “conservative” outlets, a billion of your tax dollars to carry out a massive campaign to push positive information about the COVID-19 vaccines.

‘The breach of journalistic integrity in this scheme cannot be understated. While the average American thought they were consuming “unbiased” media reports, they were actually part of a paid propaganda campaign to convince them to take the vaccine.’ —The Blaze



As in the US, so also in Canada, the UK… and every other government wishing to create and control the narrative in its favor. The following exposés show in detail the chain of custody of narrative management in the West.

The latest news cycle dominated by Ukraine is no exception; rather it represents the leading edge of the narrative whitewash underway to steer mass perception, opinion, and thus policy.

‘Behind Ukraine’s public relations effort is an army of foreign political strategists, Washington DC lobbyists, and a network of intelligence-linked media outlets.’ —Dan Cohen

In response I pose the following quips and queries:

Social media query:
Do you want to be part of a thundering herd?

Message to humans:
Take me away from your leader.

Paging the Forty Percent

While the narrative war has raged between the mainstream and alternative news media, there has been an increasing polarization between the true believers and the vocal skeptics, each representing perhaps thirty percent of the population. In between is the contested middle ground, the hearts and minds of the Forty Percent—those caught in the middle of the plandemic squeeze, neither fully brainwashed into the Covidian Cult, nor bold enough to question the dominant propaganda. The silent majority, the undecided.

The massive outpouring of public support for the Canadian Truckers’ Freedom Convey suggests that the herd has clearly turned—a shift reflected also in government’s widespread removal of mandates.



In assessing where the center of gravity now sits, it’s worth reflecting on the benchmarks of the psychological operation of the last two years.

A year ago, most seemed still caught in the hypnotic spell of the PCR test fraud, suppression of vaccine death statistics, and demonization of early treatment options such as HCQ and ivermectin. While the science offered much valid ground for debate, most “normies” seemed unwilling to budge on rational grounds alone. So a different dynamic was apparent.

I felt that people eventually would need to unite from four core motivations:


Common Ground

We would need to reassert and identify with our humanity; our natural and instinctive right to self-determination; our enshrined charters of rights and freedoms; the principle of informed consent; and flawed as it is, the democratic rule of law that serves majorities and protects minorities, including those who dissent from policy.



We would unite in our sense of betrayal by the authorities entrusted with our care. We would see through the hypocrisy of constantly shifting goals and rules. We would resent the lockdowns imposed without scientific justification or regard to collateral damage. We would be outraged by the fraud of the medical and pharmaceutical establishment, perpetuated by the mass media and big tech platforms, and resulting in mass casualties from enforced malpractice in hospitals and nursing homes. We would recognize the grossly disproportionate response by governments to a virus essentially like a cold or flu, compounded by a vaccine that promised return to normal but delivered only more mass casualties.



Moving on from fear of the virus, we would place our fear on more palpable threats: the destruction of every aspect of our former social, cultural, and economic life; the loss of livelihood, job, small business; the loss of our basic rights and freedoms of speech, movement, and assembly; assaults to our bodily autonomy and integrity; arbitrary fines and detention; police brutality; and undisclosed adverse effects from the experimental genetic injection. We would come to recognize the real conspiracy of the World Economic Forum to force its Great Reset on all of humanity, seeking to remake our race in its own faceless image.



A Greater Reset

Returning to the positive emotion of common ground, we would unite in our preference for a greater reset; not abandoning but reaffirming what is human. We would take empowered action to improve our lives at the local level, with grassroots voluntary actions. Our health paradigm would shift away from pharmaceutical bio-fascism to natural solutions. Recognizing that early treatments such as Vitamin D, ivermectin and HCQ could be more effective and less harmful than the mandated jabs, we would reject the edicts of censorship and restore faith in open discussion of alternatives.

Above all, the ongoing Convoy phenomenon has demonstrated that the shift of the Forty Percent is already accomplished. As the Freedom movement has emboldened ordinary citizens to come out and join the party, it shows that conscience was already rousing from its slumber, just waiting for the right wakeup call.

Now, of course, the mass hypnosis has been reinstalled under cover of war. What’s most remarkable is how quickly and completely the Covid awakening has been dampened by the new fixation. But maybe appearances are deceiving, and the new “consensus” is just as shallow and artificial as its predecessor.

Maybe, just maybe, this whole notion of an instant consensus will wear as thin as a conjurer’s trick, until one day the black magic media will have lost its spellbinding power once and for all.
