Mainstream corporate media company CNN is battling against any narrative which suggests monkeypox is a sexually transmitted disease that is spreading rapidly across the U.S. due to excessive amounts of homosexual intercourse.
Even after the World Health Organization recommended late last month that homosexuals reduce the amount of intercourse and partners they have to ease the spread of the virus, CNN has refused to admit monkeypox is transmitted sexually.
“For men who have sex with men, this includes for the moment, reducing your number of sexual partners, reconsidering considering sex with new partners, and exchanging contact details with any new partners to enable follow up if needed,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told CNBC last month.
Last week, NBC shifted its narrative when it published an article that fought back against the narrative that monkeypox is spread through “skin to skin” contact, claiming the virus’ spread is primarily attributed to homosexual intercourse.
“An expanding cadre of experts has come to believe that sex between men itself — both anal as well as oral intercourse — is likely the main driver of global monkeypox transmission,” NBC News wrote.
NBC encouraged the CDC and other public health agencies to “update their monkeypox communication strategies to more strongly emphasize the centrality of intercourse among gay and bisexual men, who comprise nearly all U.S. cases, to the virus’ spread.”
CNN correspondent Dianne Gallagher angrily pushed back on the NBC and WHO monkeypox coverage, protesting that “monkeypox is not a sexually-transmitted infection, and any person can get it from prolonged, close, typically skin-to-skin contact with an infected person.”
After Gallagher accurately admitted that men “who have sex with men, and transgender people, do make up the majority of monkeypox cases right now which is why they’re being prioritized with the limited vaccine supply,” she added, “if the Biden administration wants its outreach to be a success, celebrating, while educating, without discriminating, is the only way to approach it.”
Despite shutting down businesses nationwide during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden administration is encouraging LGBT pride events and festivals, which are typically superspreader events, to continue per usual.
Recently, the White House announced plans to send 50,000 doses of a monkeypox vaccine to LGBT events across the country.
