“A healthy young person gets serious consequences from COVID!” a CNN segment proclaims with glee.
Then they show the healthy young person in question, and she doesn’t fit the TV screen, she’s so obese. You don’t get to be that weight at 20 if something isn’t seriously wrong with you.
But people who’ve been zombified by these lies for almost a year hear the segment as a justification for keeping schools closed.
The “healthy young person” from the segment is very much alive and bursting with energy to get interviewed. But now she’ll spend the rest of her life blaming the serious health problems that await her on a positive COVID test and not on the obesity.
This isn’t the first healthy young COVID sufferer I’ve seen on the CNN. They invariably look like they go into doors sideways. But people invariably believe these segments and watch them uncritically.
As I keep saying, it will be over when we decide it’s over.
