‘Sure You’re Magnetic, But You’ll Never Lose Your Keys Again’

Jenny McCarthy is not going to be happy (emphasis mine)

YouTube is taking down several video channels associated with high-profile anti-vaccine activists including Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who experts say are partially responsible for helping seed the skepticism that’s contributed to slowing vaccination rates across the country. As part of a new set of policies aimed at cutting down on anti-vaccine content on the Google-owned site, YouTube will ban any videos that claim that commonly used vaccines approved by health authorities are ineffective or dangerous. The company previously blocked videos that made those claims about coronavirus vaccines, but not ones for other vaccines like those for measles or chickenpox.

OK, good for Google for finally doing something about the deliberate disinformation on their platform, but why the eff did it take them 18 months of a deadly pandemic to get there?  And when you consider that Jenny McCarthy has been the anti-vaxxer Queen for a decade-plus, there’s been all sorts of resurgence in preventable childhood illness that we thought were extinct. Anyway, this action is long overdue.

Does the Google really “earn” that much money from the nutty ads, usually preppers selling buckets of potato slop much to Jim Bakker’s dismay.

      Or something about what comes out of the South end of a North bound horse, and with Ivermectin in short supply because the rubes will believe anything on social media, it just may be worms…

    Jenny McCarthy… ugh. My wife and I both watch The Masked Singer (yeah, I know, don’t hate us), and she is by far the most annoyingly fake person on that show… and that’s saying something with Ken Jeong as a fellow judge and a bunch of people singing (with various degrees of talent) in goofy animal costumes.

    My wife has a friend that listens/listened to Mercola. She and her husband and super-duper conspiracy fans. She keeps trying to quote that guy in conversations with my wife about the dangers of the vaccine, that we both have received by the way with no ill effects.
    Maybe this will shut off that dribble, but now I expect to see some new conspiracy about how he was shut down by the whoever. Once a conspiracy fan, always a conspiracy fan.
