ebola-is-realBy James F. Tracy

In 2008 media studies scholar Jack Bratich introduced the concept of conspiracy panics to interpret powerful government and media reactions to the “collective intelligence” activities enacted by laypersons and evident within broader forms of popular culture.[1]

The idea is useful when observing how over the past several weeks mainstream media outlets have busied themselves decrying various critiques of the US government’s response to the Ebola phenomenon, the government’s potential intentions concerning the predicament, and speculations on the disease’s uncertain origins and means of diagnosis as a similarly dangerous “strain of contagion”: “the Ebola conspiracy theories.”[2]

Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharma Companies, US DoD? 60

broderickBy Cyril Broderick, Ph.D.*

This open letter was originally published by The Liberian Observer on September 9, 2014. Dr. Broderick has since been targeted by mainstream US media outlets such as the Washington Post and the tabloidesque Daily Caller, which accuse him of spreading “conspiracy theories” concerning the Ebola outbreak in Western Africa. Perhaps such outlets should stop acting as lapdogs for the powerful and further interrogate Dr. Broderick’s claims. At the end of the day, it is not unreasonable to seriously examine whether the world’s foremost institution of professional killers–the US Department of Defense–may have a hand in the Ebola outbreak, particularly in light of the fact that 1) US DoD has long experimented with Ebola and similarly dangerous pathogens, and 2) Western African nations have never before experienced such a plague.-JFT
