On Saturday 11 June 2022, I presented my talk, Examining the Media's Medical Mismarketing, at the Health & Truth Summit on Media Manipulation & Control in Motherwell, Scotland. I have written a review of the summit for Heart Publications, which is available online. My presentation investigated the credibility of the claims used to market the experimental COVID-19 genetic vaccines. Please visit to watch all the talks.
