CBS News Posts This Fraudulent Video Of ‘Crying Nurse’ To Spread Panic & Fear

We all know the coronavirus is real. However, the mainstream media’s under-handed tactics are causing many Americans to panic. CBS was just caught red-handed using a “crisis actor” who they show on video. “In tears, a nurse says she quit her job after she was asked to work in a coronavirus ICU without a face mask: ‘America is not prepared, and nurses are not being protected!'” CBS reported. Now, we know it was all a ruse. Don’t miss this.

An Instagram model who claims to also be a parttime blogger and “travel nurse” became CBS News‘ big story over the weekend. Without checking out her nursing credentials or even doing the due diligence to confirm her wild accusations, CBS decided to air what turned out to be one big fraud.

“In tears, a nurse says she quit her job after she was asked to work in a coronavirus ICU without a face mask: ‘America is not prepared, and nurses are not being protected,'” CBS News posted.

In truth, we do know the blogger who goes by the handle “Imaris” on Facebook posted she has not worked in the “ICU in over a year.” So, we have no idea what type of degree she holds, or what level of nurse she truly is. She never says. Not working in a hospital in over a year also tells us this is not her primary source of income.

“Prior to CBS picking up this video, Imaris posted on her public Facebook page that she has anxiety and bi-polar depression and had not been an employee at the hospital for over a year. She mentioned in her post that she was unsure if she was ready to return to her job,” The Federalist reports.

Jordan Schachtel, who is a national security correspondent, was one of the first to expose this fraud by CBS. 

“So it turns out this [CBS] video is entirely fraudulent,” Schachtel reports.”Yet CBS had a producer add music, captions, etc to it without even vetting this fraud. Good job guys. So she had been on the job for a day, after taking a year off to pursue something resembling an Instagram model career, and she ‘quit’ because of the conditions. Deliberate misrepresentation of her career means you cannot take her other statements at face value.”

“Crisis actor 101 type stuff,” Schachtel adds. “Right out of the Jussie playbook. She is indeed a nurse, albeit one who hasn’t been on the job much. Everything else is lies, exaggerations, and unproven statements.”

Trump campaign surrogate Cari Kelemen found a video of the same “nurse” making fun of the COVID-19 pandemic: “Hey @CBS, here’s your crying nurse. How about vetting your sources a little better? Idiots.”

Internet sleuths called out Bernie Sanders for also promoting the unverified CBS story as fact. 

“Hi @BernieSanders your girl wrote days before her histrionic video that she had anxiety and bi-polar depression, hadn’t been working in the hospital for over a year and didn’t know if she was ready to return. Maybe vet these people? Just a thought,” posted “Rosie Memos.”

“Parroting the fraudulent video is 2020 Democratic contender Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. who quote tweeted the video and called on the Department of Labor to issue emergency workplace standards,” The Federalist adds.

“It is insane that our nurses are being forced to care for the sick without masks and respirators. The Department of Labor must immediately issue emergency workplace standards to protect our health workers, their families, and their patients,” Sanders said.

Nurses and medical workers are working tirelessly with inadequate protection gear, and they are the real heroes. For an Instagram “influencer” to deliberately misrepresent her career for the instant glorification of internet fame is sickening.

This is the mainstream media ratcheting up panic and fear hoping to aid the Democrats governors in initiating even more draconian measures in their states. We are seeing our civil liberties being taken away while leftwing wackos report their neighbors for some of the most insane things. The moral of this story is really simple: during this coronavirus crisis, don’t believe everything you see and beware of fake news.
