A case study of ignoring the elephant in the room

Question: What brand of journalism fails to ask the the most basic, elementary questions like who, what, where, when, how, and why?

Answer: The censorship packed kind that dominates the American landscape today.

By James P. Hilton

So, recently a story was published describing how a 14 year old suffered a cardiac arrest and died on a commercial jetliner.

The family is rightly suing because someone employed by the airline failed in their duty to charge the AED (automatic external defibrillator) batteries, and this negligence almost certainly contributed to the child’s death.

That’s bad enough, but the really big question here that was carefully skirted around and was NOT asked was “what in the hell was a 14 year old doing having a cardiac arrest in the first place?!

As a paramedic for over 30 years I’ve treated hundreds, probably thousands of heart attack and stroke victims.

And I can assure you that except in cases of trauma -heart attacks, strokes, and cardiac arrests in persons under the age of 30, and especially in teenagers, is historically so exceedingly rare it was almost unheard of!

But all that changed about 2-3 years ago.

So the obvious next question is what precipitated that change?

What event (s) occurred in the past 2-3 years that may be the cause or a contributing cause to this ominous shift?

Well these days you’d have to be pretty gullible to expect CNN, The New York Times, or any of the usual drug company owned mouthpieces to ask the really tough questions of those in authority or to tell you the unvarnished truth.

They won’t.

Perhaps Dr. Fauci knows?

Yeah, I bet he does.
