If there is a monetary interest for them to say what they did, is there not conversely a monetary interest by some to push a different solution, like say a vaccine?
Who are we to believe when one set of doctors make one claim, and another set make a different one? Each point to things (real world experiences, studies, etc.) that support their side. Yet people are knee jerk quick to instantly dismiss one side or the other without any discussion on the merits of either side's claims. Instead it's quickly labeled as "misinformation" and removed.
As someone who is sitting in the cheap seats, these actions (by both sides) do raise questions. Media framing of Covid reports is problematic when statements are cut up or taken out of context. While we'd hope people would act rationally, time and again we see people (particularly those in power) most assuredly do not. They have their own motives and agendas that may be rational to them, but are seen as making no sense to the man on the street.
Politicians have made a number of moves that have left some scratching their heads and wondering what the real motivation has been when dealing with this pandemic.
Edit to add: It should be noted that the TPUSA co-founder was 80. It is being reported that he died from "complications" due to Covid-19. So that begs the question, what other health issues did he have? Strange how no news reports seem to say what his underlying health issue was, only that he died "from Covid-19".
It's easier to say he died from COVID-19 instead of pneumonia induced by COVID. The vast majority of deaths are due to complication caused by COVID not directly from COVID so it's not that weird that they said he died from COVID because he wouldn't have died if he didn't have COVID.
I don't think the doctors treating patients for COVID are excited that a vaccine is taking too long. They'd be pretty happy to get a vaccine to stop the pandemic because there is zero chance we're getting herd immunity naturally without killing off 1-2% of the US population. It hasn't happened historically and I doubt it's going to happen now especially since we know you can be reinfected. COVID is here to stay until a vaccine is found or it mutates into something less deadly.
As for taking down the video, they are in all fairness a private company so they can do that, but at the same time they are really not helping their case in censoring that type of stuff. So I think your point is valid, on the other hand blatant information is really harmful. It's like the classic example of where freedom of speech isn't defended like let's say when you shout fire in a movie theater. Spreading false information that can get people sick or killed does more harm than good.
As for motivations I really just think it's incompetency. I've mentioned this a lot but when they advised us not to wear masks I knew it was because we had a shortage. Masks WILL protect you but they thought healthcare workers get priority so they didn't want the public panic buying or have hoarders try to flip them for money. Politicians flip flopping is normal because they feel like they have to say something even though they have limited information. It's really unfortunate but you can't win. You either say the smart thing, "I don't know" and people think that you're an idiot or you take a shot in the dark and hope to get it right.
Personally, I don't really trust those medical professionals in that video that was taken down as they've had a weird history with medicine. For example, that black lady is a total quack:https://www.ibtimes.com/who-stella-immanuel-doctor-says-demons-responsible-infertility-sexual-diseases-3018954
The best thing you can do is analyze information critically and use some common sense; wash your hands, wear a mask in public space and avoid crowds.
