They say correlation does not necessarily mean causation. It’s a common argument used to diffuse what should appear to be clear evidence of one event causing another, but skeptics use the phrase to cast doubt. We’ve heard it invoked a lot lately as more people question whether the continuous four-decade rise in use of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) like Prozac and Zoloft is the reason for more suicides and mass murders, especially among young adult males.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson is one of them. Watch this video all the way through:

As Carlson noted, it’s conspicuous that corporate media is silent on the issue. With $4.5 billion in paid advertising going to corporate media from Big Pharma, one has to question the legitimacy of ANY news pertaining to pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer. Carlson highlighted this in the clip showing most of the major news networks heavily sponsored by Pfizer.
He also pointed out that in 2020, Big Pharma spent more money on advertising than research. Why would that be? Aren’t doctors the ones who prescribe medication? Yes. But advertising dollars are to news organizations like mega-donors are to political candidates. Big Pharma isn’t advertising on corporate media outlets to convince more doctors to prescribe they’re drugs. They advertising on news channels for the sake of hush money.
Real journalists who try to report on Big Pharma are shot down by their editors and producers. There are standing orders out there to NEVER cross Big Pharma with hit pieces or investigative reports. Big Pharma owns corporate media, and it doesn’t behoove them to bite the hand that feeds them.
If we had an objective, fact-based Corporate Media Industrial Complex that was not beholden to Big Pharma, this nation would be a far better place. Fewer kids would be constantly drugged. Suicides and mass murders would likely drop.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
