The ABC twists the facts to ‘suit its ideology’: Bolt
Liberal MP Craig Kelly said Media Watch shows “everything that is wrong with the ABC” and rabbits on about a publicist’s qualifications while ignoring the findings of a reputable study showing the success of Hydroxychloroquine.
The ABC’s Paul Barry on Monday said “Bolt and Rowan Dean claimed a new US study showed hundreds of Aussie’s with COVID-19 could be saved by Hydroxychloroquine, but hatred of Donald Trump was denying access to the drug and sentencing them to death.”
“So, what is this ground breaking study which shows our chief medical officers to be callous killers? You’ll see that it’s lead author is a Dr Chadwick Prodromos, who it turns out, is a sports doctor and orthopedic surgeon from Chicago,” Mr Barry said.
Mr Kelly said, “This media watch program shows everything that is wrong with the ABC.”
“That study found that 11 out of 11 studies that looked at Hydroxychloroquine used early as a treatment were all successful, they all reduced the rate of hospitalizations and death.
“11 out of 11, the chances of tossing a coin up in the air and getting 11 heads are statistically approaching zero, and yet the ABC ignores all that and rabbits on about the publicists’ qualifications.”
Mr Bolt said, “The ABC twists the news, twists the facts to suit it’s ideology”.
