Medical organization criticizes mainstream media for ignoring effective early COVID-19 treatment options

A leading conservative medical and health freedom organization is criticizing mainstream media outlets in the United States for ignoring alternative, cheap, effective and early treatment options for Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). This organization has accused media outlets of being in the pockets of Big Pharma.

The group in question is America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS). It is a non-partisan and not-for-profit organization that represents individuals from a range of medical disciplines. All of their members have practical experience with healthcare and medicine. The organization’s current goals involve the promotion of solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These solutions include providing Americans with science-based information regarding the coronavirus and combating the COVID-19 pandemic using evidence-based solutions that do not compromise people’s Constitutional freedoms. The group wants these solutions to be available for all Americans who need them.

The group is also concerned about protecting physicians from potential government overreach and advocating for healthcare policies that protect the physician-patient relationship.

Also of note is the organization’s fight against media censorship of alternative and early treatment options for COVID-19 and the “medical cancel culture” of physicians that promote these treatments.

AFLDS criticizes mainstream media for not talking about alternative COVID-19 treatments

Recently, AFLDS published a statement in response to what it called “inaccurate” and “slanderous” reporting by mainstream media outlets Time Magazine and NBC News.

The AFLDS accused the government of taking a fatalist attitude toward the COVID-19 pandemic. “The government has contended that there is nothing that can be done other than masking to protect individuals from COVID-19,” wrote the organization.

“The human cost of that reckless and unscientific prescription has been massive,” wrote the AFLDS.

The organization continued by talking about several licensed physicians who have promoted the use of various combinations of early COVID-19 treatments including hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, antibiotics, zinc and other vitamins.

Unfortunately, AFLDS pointed out that these physicians and their “extremely impressive clinical results” with using these alternative treatments have not been covered faithfully by mainstream media outlets. The group laments this fact because these medicines are cheap and easily available, but the majority of Americans do not understand their effectiveness against COVID-19 because of “unprecedented media censorship.”

“Globally it is well known that early treatment works but this truth continues to be frantically suppressed by the dishonest American media,” continued the AFLDS. The group then proceeded to cite several examples. The statement read:

“In India the scientist who withheld this cheap, safe medicine from her people is now facing the death penalty. In Japan the Tokyo Medical Association urged all doctors to prescribe ivermectin. In China [hydroxychloroquine] has been recommended since March 2020.”

The AFLDS then highlighted the fact that mainstream media outlets have failed to report the more than 300 scientific studies that show using these early treatment options is very effective against COVID-19. Some of these studies were published in some of the country’s most prestigious medical journals, including the American Journal of Medicine and the American Journal of Therapeutics.

The organization further pointed out that it has been directly attacked by mainstream media outlets “as part of an ongoing, orchestrated effort.” The AFLDS alleges these media outlets are earning billions of dollars from pharmaceutical corporations and pandemic-related government advertising.

“AFLDS continues to encourage the public to remain calm,” concluded the organization in its statement. “COVID-19 has a very high survivability rate and with an increased effort to protect physician independence and patient choice, we will save even more lives.”
