NBC contributor/doctor who chronicled his COVID-19 struggle from his hospital bed never had COVID-19

July 11, 2020

  We have seen the depths the mainstream media will sink to in order to scare the daylights out of people over the COVID-19 virus–for example CBS used footage from an Italian hospital to show how overwhelmed New York hospitals were–but NBC has taken first prize.

  Apparently back in May NBC had a doctor on several times who was hospitalized with COVID-19 so they could chronicle his struggle with the virus and show people how dangerous it was.

Fair appeared on Today from a New Orleans hospital bed in May 14, where he speculated he got the virus through his eyes while on a packed flight two weeks earlier. This happened, he said, despite taking precautions like wearing a mask and gloves.

Today host Hoda Kotb noted during the interview that Fair had received four negative tests for the virus but said, “clearly you have it.” Fellow host Craig Melvin called Fair’s “false negative” tests “scary,” and cohost Savannah Guthrie called it a “cautionary tale.”

Fair speculated his tests came back negative because he delayed going to the hospital for more than week when he first felt ill, and he said his doctors felt he must have the virus.

“I was a very healthy person. I exercise five to six days a week,” he said. “If it can take even me down, it can take anybody down.”

  As you just read this “doctor” tested negative for COVID-19 four times and yet the NBC host still stated “clearly you have it” as if she herself knew more than the people administering the tests. NBC continued to push the narrative despite the negative tests and then went on to use these four “false negatives” to make the COVID-19 pandemic even more scary. How many people who tested negative for the virus are actually walking around with it and infecting people?

  But it turns out that despite Hoda Kotb’s declaration that “clearly you have it” the doctor is now admitting that no he did not ever have COVID-19.

An NBC medical expert who was brought on air nearly a dozen times to detail his struggle with COVID-19 never had the virus, he revealed this week.

After believing he had the coronavirus in spite of getting negative tests, virologist and NBC News science contributor Dr. Joseph Fair tweeted Tuesday that he had tested negative for the antibodies and that the illness that hospitalized him in May “remains an undiagnosed mystery.” Steve Krakauer reported on the developments for his Fourth Watch newsletter.

  Clearly both this doctor and NBC knew the man did not have COVID-19, they admitted as such with the “false negative” narrative and yet they used this doctor at least a dozen times under the false pretense that he was suffering from the virus.

  It would be one thing if this doctor received a positive test which later turned out to be wrong, but he went on the television from his hospital bed and spread fear about COVID-19 all the while knowing he did not have it, and NBC gave him the platform to do so while also knowing this doctor did not have it. This truly is journalistic malpractice and probably medical negligence and this cannot go unpunished.

    I’m more surprised that he’s admitting it than that he lied about it. OK, maybe he didn’t believe he was lying, but he still gave out wrong information.

      I am not sure why he didn’t just keep quiet, nobody would have even questioned him on it. Maybe his conscience finally got to him. As a doctor I have to believe after four negative tests he had to have know he did not have it.

    Fear is a powerful weapon! Right now, that is one of the only things that they can use. When they start putting numbers, fake as they are, out there on the liberal channels, it drives the liberals into attacking people that do not fall in line! We only have to look at videos of screaming campus kids to know it is working. Guess I have to wonder if their parents are normal sane individuals that can still think for themselves OR screaming lunatics? As for this doctor he has sure fanned the flames whether he meant to or not!

      That is exactly what thy are doing, they are using fear as a weapon. There is a meme going around on Facebook which states the left has turned fear into a virtue and I think that nails it!
