Claim: Forbes article proves Obama/government caught telling media to coverup ebola

The claim originating on Infowars: http://www.infowars.com/media-agrees-not-to-report-on-suspected-ebola-cases-in-u-s/

The Forbes article was written by a pharmacologists who wrote this statement:
The original article now states a correction on this: http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidkr...eing-tested-at-duke-results-monday-morning/2/


[/URL]

At no time did anyone say that there is a government coverup, even the original article without the correction does not state this. Infowars merely infers that because the media is telling their journalists not to fear monger and post information without adequate sourcing that this is a media coverup and an agreement with the CDC or other authorities.

The main reason media are refraining from reporting on possible cases is that out of hundreds of possible cases reported, so far only one was actually a case (and that was somebody directly caring for a case). The list of diseases that has caused false alarms is huge: Malaria, typhus, various tropical parasites and viruses, sarcoidosis, flu, dysentery, food poisoning - all of which can be potentially bad for the victims or those on a plane with them, but pushing the Ebola button on any one of them helps nobody.

And the AP seems to accept that outlets are pretty crappy about following up on stories (and the public is even worse at seeking those follow ups) so what was happening was that hundreds of reports of "Ebola-like symptoms" were floating around the news, with only a handful of "all clears" to cancel them out.

Before the bleeding starts, "Ebola-like symptoms," means fever, chills, fatigue, upper respiratory symptoms, aches, and diarrhea. When doctors report "ebola-like symptoms" they're reporting this set, not the hemorrhaging. If they had a patient who was also hemorrhaging, they would either be reporting "Ebola," or "hemorrhagic fever," if they're being conservative (without the test, even with the final symptom it could be Marburg or something).

Fever, fatigue, ache, and diarrhea are general infection symptoms - most infectious diseases will cause some combination of them. Chills are a common add-on for fever with your body's temperature sense going haywire. And UR symptoms are symptoms of a great many diseases, including several of the most common that people consider just facts of life.

This is the same problem we had with SARS and the media reporting every case of SARS-like symptoms. SARS-like symptoms happen to be the same list as Ebola-like symptoms, or flu-like symptoms, or cold-like symptoms. Everything from AIDS to Taco Bell causes the symptoms on that list, so until you either have the RNA test in hand or wait until the last key symptom sets in, all you know about a patient with those symptoms is that, "Yep, they've got something."




TL;DR: This is not, "The public can't know about this. Let's put a lid on this right away!" It's, "Wow, we've been telling the public about this for weeks and it's kind of making us all look dumb. Let's just shut up now."

Jones and Infowars claim that there really is a hidden ebola epidemic and people are being disappeared, remember this is conspiracy theory news. If the media actually does their job and reports on it then it's obviously a false flag though.
