Media outlets are scrambling to reassure people who received the COVID-19 shot that there is no shame in testing positive for the virus after corporate media overlords guilted red states, Republicans, and the COVID-positive unvaccinated for months.
The Washington Post published an article on Thursday urging “self-compassion” for the vaccinated who are caught off guard by contracting COVID-19. Using anecdotes from people who “diligently” and “desperately” went the extra mile to keep away from the virus, the article laments how individuals who got the jab numerous times, masked up, and even stayed home feel like a failure because they fell ill.
“Thousands who ‘followed the rules’ are about to get covid. They shouldn’t be ashamed,” the headline states.
The author of the WaPo piece acknowledges, much like recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, that “breakthrough cases are becoming more normal and less of an exception” but says that the shame that was once imposed on Americans, especially in certain states, shouldn’t be happening now that vaccinated people are feeling bad about themselves.
I've been saying this from the very beginning. COVID is not a moral disease
That the media is writing these articles now is embarrassing
If you, just now, realized that you shouldn't shit on people who get COVID, you need to make a lot of apologieshttps://t.co/wxE22WV5sp

The Huffington Post ran a similar article this week claiming that “Getting COVID Isn’t A Shameful Moral Failure.”
“If you contract COVID-19 this winter, it by no means indicates that you made a mistake, behaved selfishly or weren’t ‘good enough’ at preventing its spread,” the article’s author writes in an attempt to tamp down the embarrassment of some.
The same corporate media outlets that trashed red governors such as Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas for scaling back COVID-19 restrictions are now urging vaccinated people not to have shame for getting a virus that can’t be controlled or assigned moral value.
During the height of the pandemic, corporate media banded together to criticize and shame southern states for relaxing COVID-19 restrictions and Republicans for promoting a freedom-of-choice culture that contradicts the left’s pro-vaccine-mandate stance. They gladly overlooked the rising number of COVID cases and deaths in Democrat-run states to promote an agenda that slandered members of the GOP as “superspreaders” responsible for killing grandmas. These same media giants also amplified disgust of people who opposed getting vaccinated on any religious, moral, or personal freedom grounds, a narrative that the White House gladly latched onto in its recent COVID messaging, A.K.A. fear porn.
Who is this for? Unvaccinated Americans are not going to be persuaded by messaging like this. https://t.co/he3jvfEgnz pic.twitter.com/ZI365x4hlB

Unfortunately, there have been no apologies and there will most likely be no apologies moving forward. As the left-wing activist and Lincoln Project founder Steve Schmidt illustrated in an abrasive and fearmongering tweet threat on Wednesday, the fight to blame unvaccinated people for all of the nation’s COVID woes is still ongoing.
Americas biggist travesty is the M.S. Media they hide the truth from us Lie big time give us fake news 24/7 and tell us to always vote for Democrats they also lie about Global Warming/Climate Change give us Fake News about Guns and ignore the truth about Covid and where it came from
Most of the AP articles considered news are really opinion and should be labeled as such. I saw an article that labeled a lobby organization as “Black Money” in the first 6 words. Who determined what is a “Black Money” organization? The media of course!
Recall when the IDF destroyed a building in the last 11 day war with humas in palestine?? you should recall, because the ap reports shared the same building as jihad warriors. Right they saw these butchers entering and leaving the building with RPG’s and heavily armed terrorsit but thought nothing of it, just some nice guys one floor below the ap office. the stupider get stupider every passing moment.
” Using anecdotes from people who “diligently” and “desperately” went the extra mile to keep away from the virus, the article laments how individuals who got the jab numerous times, masked up, and even stayed home feel like a failure because they fell ill.” There shame is in believing those who have been lying to them all along. It’s been shown masks and isolation don’t work. The vaccines worked but are not as effective against variants. Now, if they continue to blindly follow the leftist dogma of vaccines and masks instead of effective treatments of weaker and weaker variants, then they are simply stupid and THAT is shameful.
““Thousands who ‘followed the rules’ are about to get covid. They shouldn’t be ashamed,” the headline states.” No, they should be pissed for begin lied to by the left. The only failure is by idiot Biden who, apparently, had a valid plan to prevent ANYONE from getting sick but decided not to employ it. Instead, he did NOTHING.
There’s no shame in getting the idiot Biden virus; there’s only shame in believing a rag on your face makes you safe.
After all those making fun of the people who refuse to wear masks the Lie a day M.S. Media Turkeys have come more to roost
