Makary: Twitter Files Prove Existence Of 'State-Controlled Media'

December 29, 2022

Fox News Medical Contributor and John Hopkins School of Medicine Professor Dr. Marty Markary recently appeared on an episode of Fox & Friends First. While there, he talked about the establishment media and big liberal government control going hand in hand with each other.

According to Markary, the Twitter Files show that America has been dealing with "state-controlled media" for a while.

You know who else has state-controlled media? China.

Makary thinks the similarities between where China's media is and where America's media is heading are just a little too close for comfort.

According to him, the Twitter Files show that our media is not free, it's similar to other nations "where state-controlled media censors all information that is not aligned with the leading political party in power." He added:

I don’t know if this is — looks more like the Salem witch trials or modern-day McCarthyism. But, in other countries, this has been going on for a long time where state-controlled media censors all information that is not aligned with the leading political party in power. And that’s, sadly, what we’re seeing right here. Look at the amount of misinformation put out by the government itself, by public health officials, ignoring natural immunity, that the vaccine has a risk/benefit analysis that strongly favors vaccination in young, healthy children — we’ve never seen that data — that closing schools would reduce transmission in young people, that the vaccine works in six-month-old babies, or that Fluvoxamine was ineffective. There’s a long list of misinformation from the government. They just wanted to change the narrative and that’s the sad part about its impact on science.
