Notice that no one particularly wanted to talk about the subject when it was going on though? Why is it that it's only in March that we're talking about China's failures in December & January? Could it possibly be that people want to distract us away from talking about America's failure in March being talked about in March?
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Where did 21 million cell phone users disappear to in the PRC?
How much testing have you done of that 21 million disappeared people claim? You've spent a really long time debunking the supposed "fake news" that is being spread abut the coronavirus in the USA. Why are you not spending a modicum of that time on checking the stuff you're insisting is true? Why aren't you doing bing searches on that stuff? If you had, you would have quickly noticed
1) This drop is not unprecedented
. There was a drop in cell phone usage of around 10 million between March and June. What disaster are you claiming killed 10 million people back then?
2) You would have noticed that China has 1.6 billion cell phones
but only 1.4 billion people
which absolutely should have got you wondering about those alternative explanations which were so quickly dismissed by Epoch Times. They claimed that Chinese migrant workers and students couldn't allow their phone subscriptions to lapse because they need those subscriptions in order to prove their ID. Which is true. But they only need one phone to do that. But it should be immediately obvious that there are 200 million more phones than people. That number could have dropped by 200million and those objections still wouldn't mean a damn thing because those people would still have a mobile phone to do all that with.
3) So given how easy it is to let a subscription lapse in China (you literally don't do anything and they cut you off when your balance is negative), it's pretty easy to see that the 21m fall can easily be explained by migrant workers and students letting their Shanghai number die because they have no need for it when they are locked down in their hometown in Sichuan.
So there are alternative explanations for that claim, ones that aren't based on a single point of data which as I've proved is wrong anyway, why are you spreading it without checking it as rigorously as you have checked the ones that make Trump look better? Why haven't you spent the 30 seconds it would have taken to check the facts for yourself?
See? This is exactly the sort of bull**** I called you out on multiple times earlier. This is the same as when you posted an article about the lack of masks and tried to claim it explained why Obama was responsible for the lack of testing. This is the same as when you argued that a manufacturing defect means that we should ignore that the testing kits still weren't available in early March. In case you are wondering why people keep asking you to answer Karajorma's question, this is the question I asked you.
Please explain why you are engaging in exactly the sort of flim-flam and half truths you are calling other people out for.
even if you are just standing up for the truth, even if you just think that the truth is super important and everyone needs to know the truth so you have to shout it out onto a thread that never asked you to do so, why are you being so selective about which truths you stand up for?
Why are you misrepresenting the truth in order to argue that the truth is important and shouldn't be misrepresented?
