Sadly enough the truth about hydroxychloroquine is hard to discern due to it becoming politicized after President Trump touted it as showing potential in treatments in France. Ever since then the Trump hating media like CNN has unprecedentedly, repeatedly & intentionally gone out of their way to show this drug as dangerous, risky & ineffective. I will cite the recent claims of high percentage VA deaths that were used by media to portray hydroxychloroquine in a bad light. Then last Tuesday VA secretary Robert Wilke blasted the media for touting that very 'study' saying that, “That was not a VA study,” & it was never clinically reviewed or peer reviewed, nor were the various co-morbidities of the elderly patients included or considered. He also said this consisted of a high number patients that were hours from death when first given the drug as a last hope of recovery! And yet the media ran with it, politicized it because it could be used against Trump! WTF has the world come to when our 'News' agencies comport themselves like this? We simply can no longer take any one thing we see, hear or read as gospel truth anymore. Everything important needs multiple sources of information from a cross section of news from all sides. Bottom line as best as I can figure is that hydroxychloroquine has been an OTC drug for 65 years now & when dosed properly under the care of a physicians there is negligible risk & is as safe or safer than other OTC medication. It continues to amaze me how people continues to behave & react towards Trump. The politicization of this drug is just one easy to see example. As one person put it, "Some how hydroxychloroquine has become a political drug because Trump said it could help, silly simple fools.". If the media had simply not gotten hooked into another I gotcha battle with Trump & left any further mention of hydroxychloroquine alone most people would know little to nothing about this drug, never mind be able to pronounce it or try to spell it! And yet the media's behavior & persistent mentioning of it has made the drug a household name. I never cared for billionaire Trump but I got to say I hate seeing how the media & people opposed to him have chosen to act in response to him even more! What happened with 2+ years of Russia-gate alone should turn most fair / open-minded peoples stomachs or at least open their eyes to exactly what has been & still is happening here & get them to wake up to it & say that this is simply unacceptable from our media & our politicians. Hydroxychloroquine very well may or may not be effective on COVID 19, unfortunately it is going to take more than a story or two for me to believe ANYTHING printed by the media because life has shown they simply can NOT be trusted!
