The novel coronavirus has resulted in a massive amount of misinformation. The biggest single event may well have been the release of the Plandemic video, which exploded across social media in 2020 and was later followed by a sequel. The films were filled with outright lies, distortions, and disinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic and the response from the medical community.
Notably, the book is planned to be “sold” and “ship[ped]” by Amazon itself.
The summary promises in part:
The incredible true story of the most banned documentary in history.
Researching the controversy arising after the release of the viral phenomenon known as Plandemic, the most seen and censored documentary in history, an investigative journalist sets out to disprove and debunk claims made throughout the film. Instead, the journalist opens a Pandora’s Box to witness firsthand an underworld of corruption, lies, and the darkest of unsolved mysteries.
The result? A fascinating behind-the-scenes account about the making of Plandemic and Plandemic: Indoctornation; an exposé of the truth behind the origins of COVID-19; an alarming examination of individuals, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, and organizations like the CDC, NIH, WHO, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, among others, driving the global vaccination agenda; and a look at the tech giant and mainstream media forces doing their utmost to silence and suppress the veracity of these findings.
Investigative filmmaker, Mikki Willis, focuses his unflinching lens on two key subjects; virologist Dr. Judy Mikovits, who speaks frankly about the machinations for control and profit corrupting individuals and institutions tasked with overseeing public health; and Dr. David E. Martin, whose research and shocking data corroborate allegations of conflicts of interest.
The book promises to echo existing conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccines and Bill Gates, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and others. And not harmless or minor conspiracy theories: The film promoted the lies that vaccines could kill millions and that wearing a mask during an airborne pandemic “activates” the virus. It’s just totally absurd stuff, completely made up and false. And now Amazon is profiting from it.
As we have previously noted, conspiracy theorist Judy Mikovits, who was featured in Plandemic, is as dishonest they come:
Mikovits gained notoriety after she made multiple false and misleading claims about the coronavirus and public health in Plandemic. Mikovits argued that mandatory coronavirus vaccines will “kill millions as they already have with their vaccines,” and falsely claimed that "flu vaccines increase the odds by 36% of getting COVID-19" and are part of a plot against what filmmaker Mikki Willis called “natural remedies” for the virus. Mikovits also asserted that it’s "insanity" to close beaches because somehow the sand and “healing microbes in the ocean” will actually help treat the virus. She also touted antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the virus, despite multiple studies casting doubt on its efficacy, and she and the film pushed the false claim that the death count from COVID-19 is being inflated. The news magazine Science also reported that Mikovits made false claims about Fauci and her own credentials in the film, and FactCheck.org explained that she made false claims about face masks and Ebola. At the end of May, Mikovits also defended a bogus bleach product as a treatment for COVID-19. YouTube, Facebook, and multiple other platforms have removed Plandemic from their sites for containing potentially harmful misinformation about COVID-19.
Plandemic is so toxic that when Mikovits showed up on a show on right-wing local news conglomerate Sinclair Broadcasting, the organization went out of its way to distance itself. Amazon apparently has no such concerns.
