DENMARK: ‘We Failed’: Danish Newspaper Apologizes For Its COVID Coverage; Danish newspaper has apologized to its readers for not questioning the government’s data; should have done more due diligence
by Paul Alexander
Thank you, very late and you like all the globe's sycophantic press did cost thousands of lives by helping spew lies and disinformation to sell the fraud of the COVID response, you harmed thousands
The Ekstra Bladet, founded in 1904, said it should have done more due diligence in examining the government’s data and conclusions before reporting them:
“For ALMOST two years, we - the press and the population - have been almost hypnotically preoccupied with the authorities' daily coronatal,” wrote Bladet journalist Brian Weichardt. “THE CONSTANT mental alertness has worn out tremendously on all of us. That is why we - the press - must also take stock of our own efforts. And we have failed.”
In the mea culpa, which went viral on Twitter earlier this month, Weichardt suggested the newspaper should have asked more questions about how public health officials were tabulating data:
“WE HAVE NOT been vigilant enough at the garden gate when the authorities were required to answer what it actually meant that people are hospitalized with corona and not because of corona. Because it makes a difference. A big difference. Exactly, the official hospitalization numbers have been shown to be 27 percent higher than the actual figure for how many there are in the hospital, simply because they have corona. We only know that now.
