The Guardian has promoted a baseless attack on a UK registered nurse and nutritionist who caused a whirlwind of awakening among the population in the United Kingdom in a short twenty-minute video in which she provided facts about the very real threat of the rollout of 5G technology and the timing of the Wuhan virus.

First, from The Guardian:

British broadcasters are being warned that they face sanctions from the media regulator if they give airtime to false health advice about coronavirus, after a Sussex radio station was given a severe warning for broadcasting baseless conspiracy theories that the pandemic is linked to the rollout of 5G phone networks.

Members of the public complained after hearing a broadcast on the community radio station Uckfield FM, in which a woman introduced as a “registered nurse” claimed, without any evidence, that the rollout of 5G phone technology in Wuhan was connected to the outbreak and that the virus had been created in a lab.

It later emerged that she was a practitioner of alternative medicines, while the media regulator said it was “not aware of any reputable scientific evidence to corroborate such a contentious claim which runs contrary to all official advice, both in the UK and internationally, about coronavirus.”

Ofcom confirmed it was actively monitoring television and radio stations that might be broadcasting potentially harmful views about the causes and origins of Covid-19 that have “the potential to undermine people’s trust in the advice of mainstream sources of information” during the crisis.

Baseless suggestions that coronavirus is linked to 5G have spread widely in recent weeks on WhatsApp, Facebook groups, and on the fast-growing community website NextDoor – all of which have the ability to reach vastly more people than a small community radio station in Sussex but are much less regulated.

The woman they are referencing is UK registered nurse Kate Shemirani.

Here’s her video that is in question by the media and Uckfield FM.

Notice that all throughout this Guardian piece the phrase “baseless suggestions” is used, and it uses even more as the hit piece continued.

However, let me address the first thing first.

The Guardian’s baseless use of quotation marks around the term “registered nurse” is meant to imply that the person they are speaking about is not a registered nurse, and it is further implied when Jim Waterson, the media editor for The Guardian, wrote, “later emerged that she was a practitioner of alternative medicines.”

Now, had Waterson done his homework instead of engaging in full, propaganda attack mode, he might have simply taken the time to call up Kate Shemirani to verify her credentials and to take a look at the documentation that she used in her statements.

Furthermore, he could have simply used the NMC.org.uk website to have verified her credentials, but chose not to do so in an attempt to discredit her.  Here’s what readers of The Guardian will find at this link.
