On a recent episode of “The Jimmy Dore Show,” comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore accused Dr. John Torres, medical correspondent for NBC News, for overplaying COVID’s risk to children and reporting incorrect statistics.
“This is a story about how money influences corporate news,” Dore said, before playing a compilation video of Pfizer sponsoring newscasts on CNN, NBC, CBS, Good Morning America, ABC News, MSNBC and 60 Minutes.
“So what’s the result of all that Pfizer money going to newsrooms?” Dore asked. “Here’s how they’re going to report on the Pfizer vaccine being authorized for children who are at almost zero risk, according to the science.”
Dore played a clip of Torres on NBC’s Today show explaining why parents should vaccinate their children with Pfizer’s vaccine.
Torres recited statistics — including the statement that “there have been 146,000 COVID deaths [among children]” — that aren’t corroborated by any government health agency.
