Entrapment Against Colloidal Silver Users on Facebook
The corporate news media is now stooping to
new lows, sending reporters using false identities to infiltrate colloidal
silver-related Facebook groups in order to entice group members into making
medical claims for the nutritional supplement.
Here’s the inside scoop on this developing story…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge..
The corporate news media – scum that they all-too-often are – have been sending reporters to entrap people on Facebook into making medical claims about colloidal silver.
This of course is part of the news media’s ongoing campaign to discredit colloidal silver usage in light of the recent revelation that an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense had conducted a test tube study in which nanosilver was demonstrated to halt the Ebola virus from replicating inside infected cells (see study overview, here).
Since the Ebola outbreak and the subsequent spread of the disease to the U.S., however, online discussion of the DOD study has been vilified in the media as an attempt to “bring false hope” to Ebola victims, and “sell snake oil” to people fearful of Ebola’s potential spread.
No Ebola “Cure”
Of course, as I previously wrote, in an article entitled “FDA Ready to Bring the Hammer Down on Colloidal Silver Vendors?” there is quite literally ZERO definitive evidence for claims that colloidal silver is a “cure” for Ebola.
After all, the DOD-related study was only a test tube study, and not a human study. And therefore, it cannot be used as proof that colloidal silver works against Ebola.
But as I insisted then – and I continue to insist now -- people have the right to openly discuss and debate all issues regarding the nutritional supplements they use, including colloidal silver.
That’s one reason why I formed the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook several years ago, so such issues could be widely discussed and openly debated in a public form.
Indeed, it was on the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook that the now-infamous DOD study was originally posted some two years ago, long before it was mysteriously scrubbed from all government-related internet venues earlier this year when the Ebola crisis broke out in full force.
In recent weeks, however,
the news media has been sending reporters to surreptitiously join colloidal
silver forums on Facebook.
That’s pure entrapment, of course. The slimy reporters are cunningly tugging on people’s deepest emotions in a deceitful effort to lure them into saying anything that could be construed as “medical advice.”
Worse yet, in their news articles these reporters even brag about using such despicably deceptive means of inducing people to respond.
As one reporter openly bragged: “We used a fake username and claimed a female relative is seriously ill with breast and liver cancer. We affirmed that neither surgery nor chemotherapy have helped, and that doctors have given her a short time left to live.”
Once the reporters have posted their phony but emotion-laden stories on a Facebook colloidal silver forum, they then take screen shots of the comments, and use those screen shots as evidence from which to write sensationalistic news articles claiming that “snake oil salesmen” on Facebook are “making big money by giving false hope to dying people.”
A New Low for the Corporate Media
This, of course, demonstrates with great clarity the new low the corporate media has sunk to in its ongoing, incestuous relationship with Big Pharma, from which it derives some $4.8 billion per year in advertising revenue according to the U.S. Government Accounting Office.
As we’ve all seen in the past, the news arm of corporate media outlets is often used to denigrate the use of nutritional supplements, particularly popular supplements people may be taking for enhanced health and well-being instead of using Big Pharma’s toxic prescription drugs.
Sensationalistic scare stories designed to herd people away from natural health and straight into the arms of Big Pharma are published or broadcast on a regular basis by the corporate news media.
Of course, you have practically zero deaths from natural substances like colloidal silver over the past – what? – 60 years or more. And you have something like 106,000 deaths per year – each and every year, in the U.S. alone – from Big Pharma’s toxic prescription drugs which constitute the bulk of advertising revenue for the corporate media.
But of course, that incestuous big-dollar relationship between Big Pharma and the corporate media is never mentioned by their news outlets when they rail against natural health products. And neither are the real-life heartbreaking stories of what those 106,000 deaths per year from prescription drugs are doing to real-life families like yours and mine.
It just demonstrates the two-faced, hypocritical nature of the corporate news media today, where over a million deaths every ten years from prescription drugs – in the U.S. alone -- gets virtually no news coverage whatsoever, but let some poor guy on a Facebook group get duped by a reporter into trying to help a supposedly sick, dying individual and he’s publicly lambasted in the media as a “fraud,” a “charlatan” and a “snake oil salesman out to make a buck.”
This clearly demonstrates the low-life, back-alley nature of the corporate media beast.
No Medical Advice
Nevertheless, as a reminder to readers who might also be members of the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook, medical advice is not allowed on that forum. That’s because forum members are not doctors or medical practitioners of any kind, and make no claims to be.
Indeed, no one on the Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook is qualified to tell you how to use colloidal silver to cure a serious illness or disease, or even to recommend colloidal silver as a “cure” for a disease someone might be suffering from. By FDA regulations, colloidal silver is a nutritional supplement, and not a drug. Period.
The Colloidal Silver Secrets Community on Facebook is simply a forum in which people gather to publicly discuss and debate the use of colloidal silver as a nutritional adjunct to their health and well-being.
This, much as other
online forums are designed to allow people to discuss their experiences with
herbs, minerals, vitamins, boats, cars, clothing lines, computer games or any
other conceivable subject.
Yes, that’s the very
same First Amendment that protects the corporate news media itself, even when
they pimp themselves out to Big Pharma under the guise of “investigative
More Hypocrisy and Corruption
Oh, and by the way, in February of 2014 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration – acting under obvious pressure from Big Pharma -- took the very first steps in the regulatory process to make sure the public would no longer have to listen to the long litany of risks and side effects of prescription drugs in media advertising.
Isn’t that sweet?
The medical authorities claim they’re concerned that the long disclosure of prescription drug side effects in TV, radio, magazine and newspaper ads are just a bit too tedious for the average individual, and might “result in reduced consumer comprehension, minimization of important risk information and, potentially, therapeutic noncompliance due to fear of side effects.”
In other words, the medical authorities are afraid if you know what the side effects of the drugs are, you’d never use them. So they no longer want you to know what the real risks of prescription drugs are, or even how many different risks there are. They just want you to obediently take your drugs like good little boys and girls.
And don’t dare seek information about natural health alternatives in online communities. That’s strictly verboten, mind you. “We have people watching.”
Such is the world we live in, folks, where the corporate criminals hide their heinous crimes through regulatory manipulation, and then use their shills in the corporate news media to try to make criminals of people who simply want to discuss alternative means of staying healthy and well.
