Apparently, pushing the fake UVA rape story and the following lawsuits wasn’t sufficient to influence Rolling Stone journal from sticking to masking simply music. However in a now-discredit article printed on Friday, the music rag claimed Northeastern Hospital System Sequoyah was making gunshot sufferers wait as they cope with an inflow of individuals overdosing on a livestock deworming treatment pondering it might remedy COVID. However none of it was true. And though the journal had gotten essentially the most publicity for publishing the pretend story, different liberal retailers peddled it too.

 “The rise in folks utilizing ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug normally reserved for deworming horses or livestock, as a remedy or preventative for Covid-19 has emergency rooms ‘so backed up that gunshot victims had been having laborious instances getting’ entry to well being amenities, an emergency room physician in Oklahoma stated,” Peter Wade dubiously reported.

And based on one physician, gunshot victims couldn’t be handled due to it:

This week, Dr. Jason McElyea instructed KFOR the overdoses are inflicting backlogs in rural hospitals, leaving each beds and ambulance companies scarce.

“The ERs are so backed up that gunshot victims had been having laborious instances attending to amenities the place they will get definitive care and be handled,” McElyea stated.



However when the hospital system pushed again on the Stone’s reporting, proving it utterly false, the journal issued an “replace” slightly than a correction or a retraction.

The replace was primarily the hospital system’s assertion. “Though Dr. Jason McElyea isn’t an worker of NHS Sequoyah, he’s affiliated with a medical staffing group that gives protection for our emergency room. With that stated, Dr. McElyea has not labored at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months,” they stated.

And never solely did the journal’s supply not work there not too long ago, they’d not handled anybody for overdosing on the dewormer and had been treating gunshot victims:

NHS Sequoyah has not handled any sufferers because of problems associated to taking ivermectin. This contains not treating any sufferers for ivermectin overdose. All sufferers who’ve visited our emergency room have acquired medical consideration as applicable. Our hospital has not needed to flip away any sufferers searching for emergency care. We need to reassure our group that our employees is working laborious to offer high quality healthcare to all sufferers. We admire the chance to make clear this subject and as all the time, we worth our group’s help.

However Rolling Stone’s pretend information with the story didn’t cease there.

In their tweet promoting the story, the journal confirmed a picture of individuals ready in like outdoors a constructing, as if that was photographic proof (proven above). However August has simply ended and the picture had folks sporting winter coats, the bushes had no leaves, and it was apparent none of them had been gunshot victims.

As Spectator contributor Stephen L. Miller reported via Twitter on Sunday, “The {photograph} Rolling Stone used for his or her false ivermectin ER story is from January, through the AP and was for a vaccine drive for African Individuals by a church.”



Not solely did Rolling Stone publish their very own piece pushing the pretend story, however others within the liberal media had been additionally peddling their very own variations of the pretend information. “The sudden craze amongst COVID-19 vaccine skeptics to take Ivermectin — an anti-parasitical remedy generally utilized in horses and different cattle — has triggered an awesome quantity of individuals needing remedy for overdosing on the drug throughout Oklahoma,” purported Brandon Sapienza for the New York Each day Information.

And protecting with the development of common suspects pushing absolute nonsense, after all, Newsweek picked it up too. “A health care provider in rural Oklahoma has claimed that folks taking the horse de-wormer treatment ivermectin to deal with COVID-19 are filling up the realm’s emergency rooms,” wrote Jon Jackson.

Even MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tweeted out the reporting from the native NBC affiliate that was the source of all of the pretend information on the story, KFOR. It was additionally talked about by MSNBC host Pleasure Reid on-air on Friday utilizing reporting from Insider. “An emergency in a single rural Oklahoma city is being overwhelmed by folks overdosing on ivermectin, the horse deworming treatment. It is gotten so unhealthy that gunshot victims, gunshot victims are having to wait to be handled,” she parroted.

In contrast to Rolling Stone, none of those different retailers have issued updates, corrections, or retractions of their reporting, nor have they got the assertion from Northeastern Hospital System Sequoyah.
