When #FilmYourHospital trended on twitter last summer, citizen reporters across the United States flocked to emergency rooms with cameras in hand.
The results were shocking.
Images of long lines, packed waiting rooms and overrun staff were all over local televisions. But when the citizens arrived with their phones and cameras, they found empty parking lots and vacant waiting rooms.
The hospitals were literal ghost towns and medical staff were making endless TikTok videos to pass the time.
The media coverage, a complete hoax. Long lines were created artificially to portray a false image on the TV news. Once the TV cameras turned off, everyone went home.
Now, it appears Canadian mainstream news may be trying the same thing. Stoke panic and fear to justify locking Canadians under house arrest.
The situation is dire in Manitoba. A “hospital drowning and desperate for help” and patients “forced to wait hours int he ambulance bay” this CBC story claimed.
Rebel News reporter Keenan Bexte went to the same hospital and was greeted by crickets. More staff than patients. Thank you to Bexte for exposing this hoax.
