New York Times editor drops dead hours after his booster shot, as NOT reported by the New York Times (or any outlet other than the COVID Blog)

From Prof. Alonzo Bickerstaffe:

The Media Lie: Carlos Tejada, Deputy Asia Editor for The New York Times, Dies at 49 – The New York Times (

The Media Truth: Carlos Tejada: 49-year-old Wall Street Journal and New York Times writer posts booster shot photo on Instagram, dead hours later – The COVID Blog

The way you tell the lie is always with a fairly consistent pattern of telling 2/3rds of the truth: 1.) Yes, he died. 2.) Yes, he died of a heart attack. 3.) Omit: his heart attack was caused by the booster.


“The Reality is that all is vanity, and the Truth is that everything is a gift of God. Reality prevents the Truth from being an evasion, while the Truth prevents Reality from being hopeless.”

-Jacques Ellul, Reason For Being (Meditations on Ecclesiastes)
