(NaturalNews) Yesterday, we published a groundbreaking article exposing the total media hoax that has been running in the mainstream media over the past week or so. The hoax involved a fraudulent study using altered data which claimed to show that "vitamins are deadly!" But the actual data from the study didn't reach that conclusion at all, and the mainstream media reporting on this was little more than a collection of outright lies and willfully engineered disinformation.

Read that report here:

Today we continue with part two of exposing this malicious media hoax, which was designed (of course) to scare people away from taking vitamins while at the same time feeding them propaganda stories that encourage everyone to get their vaccine shots, eat their GMOs, and take their chemotherapy. According to the mainstream media, you see, poisons are good for you, but nutrition is deadly.

Minerals, they claim, might kill you. But being injected with a vaccine using aluminum adjuvants and mercury preservatives is actually GOOD for you, they insist!

Here's the real truth: Vitamins won't kill you, but pharmaceuticals kill 100,000 Americans a year (or more)

Of course, the biggest hoax in all this is that there has never been a single confirmed case of a vitamin killing anyone, and yet FDA-approved pharmaceuticals kill at least 100,000 Americans every year! (

Does the mainstream media report on all the dead Americans killed by deadly medications? Of course not. Never mind that the number of Americans killed by medications dwarfs the total body count from all acts of alleged terrorism in the history of our nation ( Never mind that twice as many Americans die each year from FDA-approved pharmaceuticals as died in the entire Vietnam War. Never mind that even the FDA's own top scientist -- Dr. David Graham -- blew the whistle on the total corruption of science within the FDA, revealing how just one drug (Vioxx) was proven to cause over 60,000 heart attacks, many of which killed people. (

Does the mainstream media report on the hundreds of Americans who die every day in America from pharmaceuticals? Not a chance. Instead, they try to focus people on the false idea that "vitamins will kill you," even though there isn't a shred of reliable evidence to support the idea that a single death has ever been caused by a vitamin (even a synthetic vitamin).

The media hoax, you see, is found not only in the lies they tell you, but also in the truths they refuse to tell you.

This whole story about vitamins being dangerous is a sleight-of-press distraction to take your focus away from the things that are really killing people (vaccines, medications, chemotherapy) and try to make you focus on the things that aren't (vitamins and dietary supplements). It's classic CIA-style social engineering, brought to you by the mainstream media which has become "the least trusted news source on the planet."

Research scientists just invent whatever data they want, and it routinely gets published in "scientific" medical journals

There's something rather hilarious and pathetic about the drug-pushing, vaccine-pimping "scientists" that dominate (quack) medicine today: They don't care how sloppy or fraudulent the science really is as long as it's in their favor.

Heck, when they don't get the data they want from conducting real science, they just invent whatever data they want! This is what Dr. Scott Reuben did -- a key researcher for Pfizer and Merck. He literally just dreamed up whatever data he wanted and authored over twenty studies which were published in mainstream medical journals -- even though they were all complete fraud! (

These were then cited by literally thousands of other research papers, many of which were also fraudulent themselves. This is how Big Pharma's medical system works: One round of fraudulent studies cites another round of fraudulent studies until they've built up something that appears to be a well-referenced body of research but which is actually based entirely on fabricated junk science.

Ah, but who cares? Who cares that the research is complete fraud? As long as the media can scare people away from vitamins, that's what really counts, you see. They don't care that it's all a complete hoax because they know that 99% of their readers will never check the facts for themselves. Most people will just swallow whatever media lies are shoved at them, without even a hint of skepticism.

Facts are stubborn things

After all, who cares about facts anymore? Facts are inconvenient when you're trying to convince the world population to stay sick and diseased all the time so you can sell 'em more of your patented, monopoly-priced prescription poisons.

They can't just come right out and tell the truth, you see -- that would destroy the pharmaceutical industry. Instead, they have to fabricate a whole system of lies which are then backed up by the criminal, repugnant FDA and then parroted in the mindless mainstream media.

Here's another inconvenient fact that nobody in the mainstream whore media bothered to tell you:

FACT: The sample size of the women taking copper in this study was a grand total of: 24 people by the end of the study.

Twenty-four people? Yeah, that's reported in table 4 on page six of the study: There were 30 women taking copper in 1986 when the study began. This increased to 57 women in 1997, then decreased to 24 women in 2004 - 2008, when the study ended. So from 24 women, and through the voodoo manipulation of the data, this study concludes that copper has a 50% increase in mortality.

Wow, that's some pretty stunning science fraud. Sort of idiotic, actually. It would earn you an "F" in high school science class if you tried to pull this off. Yet the mainstream media reports this as if it were rock-solid science. In doing so, all they do is just embarrass themselves and show what science morons their own reporters still are.

Most of these newspapers and newsstand magazines you see claiming to cover the news should actually be filed in the "fiction" category at booksellers.

The complete scientific ignorance of mainstream journalists

Sometimes I wonder what it takes to be a corporate-controlled journalist these days. First, it requires that you be a complete moron on topics such as biochemistry, food, agriculture, nutrition, basic science, the environment, economics, the money supply and of course world history. It's almost as if mainstream media journalists are comprised of people who have been voluntarily lobotomized so that they now "qualify" to write for the dumbed-down media.

More importantly, being a mainstream media "whore" journalist requires that you get really, really comfortable telling lies for your corporate masters. Whatever you're told to write, you just write it, even if you know it's a total lie. And if you're directed to destroy somebody in an interview -- like Anderson Cooper tried to do with Dr. Wakefield -- you just do it on command like a good little Nazi soldier.

That's why, with very few exceptions, the Anderson Coopers, the Bill O'Reillys, and the AP and Reuters reporters that dominate the old dinosaur media today are really just social engineers who are being used as pawns in a system of total corporate disinformation designed to keep you sick, diseased and enslaved to a medical monopoly which actually goes out of its way to destroy nutritional knowledge and therefore promote nutritional illiteracy.

There's no other word for it: Mainstream media journalists are nutritionally illiterate. So are nearly all mainstream doctors. So are most conventional scientists. So are most people! The nutritional knowledge which could have been used to prevent probably 80% of all chronic, degenerative disease in America has been censored, suppressed, shuttered or destroyed by the medical establishment working in cahoots with the FDA and the mainstream media. They have actually gone out of their way to make sure everybody "stays stupid" when it comes to vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals.

Your vaccine IS your multivitamin, yo!

The whole point of this is to keep people enslaved in a system of medical domination where they think of "nutrients" as being things they are found in prescription medications. Some people think blood-thinning drugs are "nutrients," and they pop their medications as if they were candy, sometimes taking a dozen or more dangerous prescription medications every single day. This is what the conventional medical industry wants you to think of as "nutrition."

Vaccines are nutrition, too, didn't you know? You are incomplete without them! If you want to be whole, you must allow yourself to be repeatedly injected with all kinds of vaccines. At least that's what the medical establishment wants you to believe. It's all, of course, a complete pack of lies.

Nutrition doesn't come from your doctor. Your doctor is most likely a complete and total moron when it comes to nutrition. That's why he's more likely to die before you do, because when he gets sick, he won't take vitamin D and eat natural sources of vitamin C and zinc to boost immune function. No, he's more likely to swallow his own antibiotics, then develop a superbug infection in his lungs or gut, and then die from pneumonia or cancer while being pumped full of poisons by his own colleagues who have also been totally brainwashed into thinking prescription drugs are nutrients.

Dead doctors don't lie. And they're dying in record numbers these days because they keep taking their own deadly medicines while avoiding anything that smacks of "holistic" nutrition or the healing arts.

NaturalNews readers get all that. They really get it. That's why they drink superfood smoothies, take natural dietary supplements and don't watch mainstream television news on the idiot box. And that's why NaturalNews readers will outlive all the dumbed-down consumers of mainstream television -- people who, like a character from the movie Idiocracy, say "Vitamins will kill me? OW my balls!" (

Vitamins will kill you, but vaccines are good nutrition!

As you ponder all this, keep in mind that the mainstream media is the same wretched group of retreads who tell you that vaccines are good for you!

Oh yeah, here's the scoop: Vitamins just might kill you, so don't take those. But vaccines could save your life! So get injected with those as much as possible! (Seriously...)

And GMOs are good for you too, uh-huh. And chemotherapy is good, too. You should get both your breasts cut off even if you don't have breast cancer, the LA Times reported ( That's how you "prevent" breast cancer, apparently.

Perhaps all these journalists should take their own advice and prevent brain cancer by cutting off their own heads? It would not materially affect the quality of their reporting, it seems. Even a machine can hit copy and paste on a pharma-funded press release. Who needs humans to do it if there's no thinking involved?

The mainstream media thinks all their readers are stupid

It's true: The MSM thinks their readers are stupid. And to some extent, they are correct because most of the intelligent people in the world have stopped reading or watching the mainstream media as a source of information. They've realized they are constantly being lied to by media institutions which are, themselves, funded in large part by pharmaceutical advertising and the financial interests of the corporate global elite.

Did you ever wonder why the media's coverage of Fukushima was such a downplay of the actual events that took place there? One reason is because General Electric built the Fukushima nuclear power plants while also owning key mainstream media disinfo outlets such as NBC, CNBC and MSNBC (

Do you really think these media giants which receive hundreds of millions of dollars a year in advertising revenue from drug companies will ever tell the truth about how nutrition can eliminate your need for pharmaceuticals? Of course not!

How the drug companies bought off the media

Look at this chart of the rise in direct-to-consumer drug advertising expenditures:

The Congressional Budget Office has even done research on the astonishing financial ties between the drug companies and the mainstream media. Here's what they concluded (

"Pharmaceutical manufacturers spent at least $20.5 billion on promotional activities in 2008.3 Detailing to physicians, nurse practitioners, and physicians’ assistants cost
$12 billion, accounting for more than half of that promotional spending (see Figure 1). Drug companies spent another $3.4 billion sponsoring professional meetings and
events and about $0.4 billion placing advertisements in professional journals. Pharmaceutical manufacturers spent the rest of their promotional budgets, $4.7 billion in
2008, on direct-to-consumer advertising. To place those figures in context, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) estimated that, among its members, domestic sales of pharmaceuticals and medicines totaled $189 billion in 2008 and domestic spending on research and development totaled $38 billion."

Did you catch that? $4.7 billion in advertising through the mainstream media... and that was in 2008 (it's much larger now). This also reveals that drug companies spent $12 billion bribing doctors, $3.4 billion running doctor "education camps" that promote more drugs, and $400 million corrupting medical journals.

So we're supposed to believe that none of this money has any influence on the Archives of Internal Medicine nor the mainstream media outlets which ran this media hoax that "vitamin will kill you?" Seriously?

The media fails to disclose its own financial ties to drug interests

How could any mainstream media journalist miss all this? Have they forgotten how to read? Or even how to think? Reporting on this vitamin study while failing to mention all the financial ties between the drug industry and the mainstream media itself is sort of like reporting on the Titanic's maiden voyage across the Atlantic but failing to mention it sank.

The media cover-up IS the story here! The financial corruption of the medical journals IS the story! The hoaxing of the population with a completely fabricated story based on quack science is actually one of the biggest stories of the year. And yet, obviously no one in the mainstream media will report a story based on an investigation of the total financial corruption of the mainstream media itself. That's why people read alternative news sources like NaturalNews. Because they know we haven't been bought off by some big corporate interests. You will never see Pfizer being a sponsor of NaturalNews, for example. Nor some GMO company or anyone else pushing poison. (If you do see a Google ad on our site from a pharma company, let us know and we'll ban them. We've already banned hundreds...)

Plus, we're not corporate whores, thank goodness. That sounds like a tiring job, just churning out total disinformation for the elite corporate interests during the day, and then going home at night, looking in the mirror and hating your life. But that's what thousands of mainstream media journalists do every single day: They LIE to their readers to collect a paycheck, and then they go home and wonder why they even bothered to get a degree in journalism in the first place, since virtually nobody in the whore media bothers to practice real journalism anymore.

It's kind of a cushy job, actually: Take press releases from the White House, drug companies or medical journals, rewrite a sentence or two, slap your name on it, and you've "written" your story for the day! No research (or thinking) is even necessary. No need to make a single phone call, and there's no need to check facts since they've already been provided to you by the corporate media relations whores who also push lies for a paycheck.

"Reporting the news" in the mainstream media is little more than taking corporate globalist press releases and repackaging them as "news" without engaging in any fact checking or independent research whatsoever. It's an embarrassment to the whole field of journalism, actually.

Want real journalism? Get it from alternative news sources

Reporting the real news takes far more effort than just copying and pasting press releases or White House propaganda. For starters, we have to think for ourselves. And when we report the news, we don't use teleprompters and we don't read scripts. Watch InfoWars Nightly News sometime ( and you'll notice that none of us are reading from teleprompters. We don't have scripts. We analyze current events in real time, in a LIVE video studio, with no scripts, no makeup, no special wardrobe and no big corporate sponsors. That's real journalism, folks. Here's a video of me hosting it recently (and yeah, I mess up sometimes, because I'm not reading a teleprompter):

Alex Jones, Aaron Dykes and others also host InfoWars Nightly News, where you'll learn the hard-hitting truth about all kinds of subjects, from health freedom and vaccines to government corruption and the push for war.

We don't have the super slick graphics, the big corporate sponsors, nor the wink and the nod from government "authorities." Instead, we have independent, intelligent analysis of events that really matter.

That's something you just can't get anymore from USA Today, TIME, the LA Times, the NY Times or any other mainstream media outlet. They simply can't afford to report the truth -- it would get their ad revenues and put them out of business.

Think about that for a second, and realize that every major player in the entire mainstream media only exists because they continue to serve a strategic role in pushing propaganda for powerful corporations or political interests. There is no more "news" in the news. It's all just a tapestry of lies and half-truths woven from the never-ending stream of disinformation that keeps the drug companies raking in profits from preventable degenerative disease.

The mainstream media, ultimately, doesn't want you to be informed. They want you to be obedient.
