Drew Pinsky, known in public circles as Dr. Drew, had a conversation with another doctor regarding Covid-19 and affiliated topics like face masks, lockdowns, and the vaccine. As has become far too common in recent months, the video was taken down as being against community standards since they weren’t sitting around echoing Dr. Anthony Fauci’s narrative of fear and compliance.
But the good doctors were expressing their trained medical opinions. This should abide perfectly with the left’s calls to “listen to the science.” Nevertheless, their version of science ran contrary to the fearmongering view of the coronavirus, so the video was removed. A week later, Dr. Drew took to Twitter to call out YouTube’s hypocrisy:
“Last week, YouTube struck down my video with another physician. Youtube is presumably allowing non-medical professionals to dictate the accuracy of medical information, which violates their own policy and CDA 230. Do you trust a 23yr old computer coder with your life?”

There are certain narratives that are allowed by Big Tech regardless of the narrator. A popular video, which I will not link to so as not to get it even more views than it already has, claimed to prove the Covid-19 vaccines are effective. The problem is the video was put together by an English professor with no scientific training. The “evidence” was like a junior high explanation of how vaccines work, and it was factually wrong. The video focused on standard vaccine usage of weak, dead, or inactive germs to promote antibody formation. But the mRNA Covid vaccine does not invoke this process. Nevertheless, the inaccurate video remains while the perspectives of two doctors have been removed.
Someone without medical training who promotes the efficacy of triple-face-masks are allowed to say anything on Big Tech “platforms,” but medical doctors who go against the accepted narrative are censored. Trust the science? Nope.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
