1) Thread:
The truth does not matter at RTÉ - here's why..
#TheTruthDoesNotMatterAtRTE rte.ie/news/2020/0916… via @rte
2) RTE's #TruthMatters campaign focuses on healthcare info, especially #Covid & vaccines.

RTE's past reporting on the HPV vaccine can be a guide for what we can expect wrt Covid vaccine, so we examine this @RTE_PrimeTime report (24/11/2016) as a *standard reference*.
Let's begin Image
3) Dr Peter Gotzsche, co-founder of the #CochraneCollaboration, says he was "seriously manipulated" by the @RTE_PrimeTime journalist & "she was allowed to say something on TV that was not correct".
Says BAI is not credible after his complaint went nowhere.
4) Primetime also aired as *fact* the claim that the vaccine was responsible for a 50% reduction in cervical cancer in Australia over previous 10 years.
This is obviously impossible given vaccine only came out in 2007 & is given to schoolgirls at age 12 (avg age of diagnosis ~50)
5) In reality, as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. points out below, the Australian government’s cancer data show a dramatic rise in cervical cancer in young girls vaccinated with the HPV vaccine. #TruthMatters
6) Also interviewed was an impeccably credentialed world leading medical researcher Dr Sin Hang Lee who had analysed the vaccine in his lab and raised safety concerns.

An exasperated Dr Lee then initiated a libel case after realising just how much #TruthMatters to RTE. Image
7) Incidentally, Dr. Lee went on to be the first scientist to develop an RNA testing protocol for Covid-19 that is extremely sensitive and highly accurate.
Don't expect to hear about it on RTE though. Image
8) The Primetime show was aimed at increasing vaccine uptake which had fallen to 50% due to safety concerns.

Needless to say RTE didn't bother highlighting serious health issues reported to the HPRA Adverse Event Reporting System.

Since when do teenagers go through menopause? ImageImage
9) Remember this is just one 20 min segment on @RTE_PrimeTime - RTE's *flagship investigative reporting show*.😂
I'll leave the final word to this "Director of RTÉ TV" as she allows us some insight into how the @rte hivemind works. Image

After reading thread below we took a closer look at Izzy's appearance during Saturday's protest..1/5
Something looks off with the way the *blood* is evenly distributed along top of Izzy's forehead.

On the right, an animal rights protester with fake blood. 2/5 ImageImage
Using Shia Ashura Festival photos for comparison, typically blood flow pattern from a cut to the top of the head shows distinct flow lines after blood exits hairline - not the even distribution we saw above.

Dr Umar Al-Qadri - The Oxymoronic Imam.

This week's #LaughNotHate thread looks at the Islamic theologian who can simultaneously hold two contradictory positions, embrace two opposing ideas and maintain two mutually exclusive identities. 
Al-Qadri is "Irish" when welcoming the Pope.. except the following month he's Dutch and can't even vote here.
Al-Qadri says giving up your Islamic identity is forbidden and you should be ashamed if you do it.

Helps Sinead O'Conner give up her Christian identity.

Today we profile the latest Irish politician who wants to make it a criminal phobia to criticise him - Sinn Fein Senator #FintanWarfield
Today's Indo reports on reaction to embarrassing social media pics posted by Warfield now doing the rounds on twitter.
Also an "Alright pervert" greeting by a random passerby on the street represents a "sinister" and "dramatic turn" in Irish politics
Of course, Warfield would never stoop to insulting strangers on the street himself..

Ireland now has a full blown SJW as the Government Minister with responsibility for Children and Asylum Seekers.
He wants to outlaw speech on the subject of migrant criminality.
Meet @rodericogorman.. ImageImage
You could say he is Ireland's equivalent of #AOC. ImageImage
As Minister, O'Gorman will oversee introduction of a new law streamlining the legal process for teenagers to change gender.

This topic is of particular interest to O'Gorman, he wrote a scholarly article(2004) on evolving legal position of Transsexuals:"A change will do you good" ImageImage

1/ When @RTE_PrimeTime fake newsman @downesr is *reporting*, know that a half truth is worse than a full lie.
Let's look at an example of deceptive reporting from a Primetime hit piece that aired on 26/06/2020. #rtept
2/ When speaking with a "house the homeless Irish" protester (Alice), Downes tries to frame the protest in *racial* terms. When the subject of housing for refugees came up he says to her "So you no longer regard them as filty animals?"
3/ Downes then produces a Facebook post by Alice from 2017. Disingenuously introduces it by saying "This is about the refugees".
However the post specifically deals with the subject of imported rapists and never once mentions the word "refugee" or "migrant".

1/ Thread on sabotage of @gofundme fundraiser to help victim of savage knife attack in #Carrigaline last night.
Fundraiser was organised by local Cork journalist @gearoidmurphy_.
2/ Here Mark Malone, PR guy for Gov funded NGO @Comhlamh tries to sabotage fundraising effort for #Carrigaline victim.

Malone would rather see the GoFundMe shut down & family lose out on 6K just so he can feel good about scoring some petty propaganda victory over an NGO opponent Image
3/ Malone's been trying to sabotage the fundraiser all day & now that it's suspended he's gloating & tagging @gofundme to try & keep it down.

Malone's vendetta against Gearoid stems from a story Gearoid covered last year & he now sees a chance to get some kind of petty revenge. Image
