In times of crisis and uncertainty, what is the one thing we need and deserve from our leaders and our television stations?
More precisely, ACCURATE information.
Gray TV’s bread-and-butter is their local news operations, which are for the most part the top rated sources in each market. The most basic tenet of journalism is to confirm stories, no matter the source, and to get both sides of issues that are in the public interest.
And that’s what makes the handling of the COVID panic by the broadcast industry as a whole nothing short of professional malpractice.
Gray TV then compounded this industry-wide failure by implementing an illegal and unconscionable COVID injection mandate, which is what spawned my lawsuit.
This complete failure to do due diligence is one of the counts in the lawsuit, labeled quite appropriately, “Negligence.”
The initial reporting, citing government sources straight-up without casting a critical eye in the early stages of the COVID drama can be excused. The official version of things predicted great doom and had most everyone on the run. But as time passed, and when conditions on the ground didn’t match the proclamations coming from those official sources, Gray stations did virtually no digging on the COVID story, no double checking of claims made by the government, no coverage of doctors that disputed assertions made by the CDC and other “official medical experts.”
Medical professionals who carried long track records of success, both in patient care and in the research labs argued that all was not what it seemed, but their evidence and testimony was ignored. The presence of those red flags that indicated that the official narrative could be 180 degrees from reality demanded that those statements now in question be re-examined – but in a huge disservice to the American people, the vetting never happened.
Gray takes great pride (justifiably so, in my opinion) in their special Investigative unit led by Lee Zurik. But they never turned Zurik and his crew loose on the claims made by either vaccine proponents or critics, and never examined claims about antivirals such as Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine despite the obvious high public interest and importance of proving or disproving claims.
It takes guts to do investigative journalism when one of the groups you need to investigate is one of your top advertisers. There’s a well-known video on YouTube that illustrates the problem.
It takes moral courage to bite the hand that feeds you. Of course, moral courage has been in short supply in the corporate world.
But it extended way beyond what could be termed professional malpractice. Instead of being the watchdog envisioned by the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment, Gray TV as a corporation jumped on the bandwagon and mandated untested an untested and unproven experimental medical procedure on their own employees, a procedure morally objectionable due to the use of aborted fetal tissue as a key factor in its development. Gray took it one step further, blowing off any questions about the moral ramifications or employee safety issues as unworthy of their time or attention.
Talk about high-handed treatment of the people that make your company successful! The arrogance is absolutely breathtaking.
Dozens of corporations made the same demands, bludgeoning employees with a threat of economic devastation to blackmail them into taking part in this experiment against their will. There have been virtually no repercussions for this wholesale violation of Constitutional and basic human rights, at least so far. But their day of reckoning is coming.
I’m one of the tens of thousands of victims of this incredibly breathtaking corporate arrogance. My lawsuit, along with a handful of others, is an attempt to fix THAT.
This legal action has gotten to be incredibly expensive. That’s not a surprise when you consider what the stakes are for Gray and the rest of Corporate America that participated in this mandate insanity.
