Why is the Western media always selling a story about the evil of the West?
You’ve probably heard the mainstream media claim that we’re facing the Omicron variant (which may represent the merger of COVID with the common cold) because greedy, racist Westerners were refusing to share their vaccines with Africa. Drew Holden and Aaron Sibarium suggest in the Washington Free Beacon that this analysis is all wrong:
In fact, several African countries have sent back vaccines: The problem they face is one of demand, not supply. Five of the eight countries from which the Biden administration has suspended travel have pumped the brakes on new vaccine shipments, even as cases have increased, because the countries have more doses than health officials can administer.
Across the continent, vaccine hesitancy remains high. A recent survey that spans five West African countries found that 6 in 10 people were vaccine hesitant—compared with 13 percent or less in France, the United Kingdom, and other parts of Europe and 27 percent in the United States.
Mark Tapscott is right to ask why the U.S. and the West are always presented as the bad guy. Methinks there’s an agenda at play.
