This was posted on Facebook recently by a local nurse:
“I am under ‘investigation’ by News4Jax after fellow healthcare professionals reported me to the police and media for doing a park pick up for my elderberry elixir/colloidal silver and my willingness to help some parents looking for a licensed healthcare professional to sign a county provided form to exempt their children from wearing masks for 6-8 hours a day at school.
“Instead of operating with integrity and transparency the media set up hidden cameras to spy on me and then swarmed me while I was at the park with my son meeting some friends and allowing customers to pick up their products. They went to my mother’s house. They’ve contacted countless friends and acquaintances asking questions about me. Less than 24 hours after the incident on Friday, they had shared the story 3 times. And it hasn’t stopped.
“So many people have been asking why they would be so concerned about what I’m doing and why they would focus so much energy on trying to intimidate me. Well, let’s take a look at their connections and maybe it will start to make more sense.
- WJXT/News4Jax is owned by Graham Media Group.
- Graham Media Group is owned by Graham Holdings Company.
- 5 of the top 10 owners of Graham Holdings Company are also top 10 owners of Pfizer.
- 4 are also top 10 owners of Moderna.
- 5 are top 10 owners of Johnson & Johnson.
- As well as top owners at many of the companies with the highest mask revenues, like Cardinal Health and 3M.”
She said the media is merely an extension of big industry and government and that “obsessively obedient journalists” prey on anyone not aligned with the narrative and lead the hoodwinked masses into witch hunts against those in the community they deem the enemy.
“If anyone should be under investigation it’s News4Jax. The media and these corporations have HUGE conflicts of interest, but because they distance themselves through holding companies and parent organizations, unless someone follows the bread crumbs they would never make the connection.”
She makes good points.
Someone really should tell News4Jax that their reporters aren’t private eyes.
As Eye on Jacksonville has said before, the “investigative reporter” label is just an affectation.
Every reporter is an investigative reporter, or should be. The local TV station’s reporters are not police officers and have no special training. They simply are reporters, whose duty is to report facts.
Although the story dramatically relates how the TV reporters “went undercover” – by hiding in the bushes with their cameras — the real police went to the scene and took no action. The station wisely did not identify her, admitting late in the story “it’s unclear if she has committed a crime.“
Aside from that, the story was silly. Signing forms in a public park is not illegal. They found some lawyer who dutifully surmised that the nurse might possibly be charged with practicing medicine without a license or something, but don’t expect any prosecutor to foolishly file such charges.
The story simply follows the liberal vax-and-mask line. Anything that deviates must be attacked.
The nurse who was the victim of this story actually did more investigative work than the reporters, by uncovering and revealing the corporate connections of News4Jax.
