‘Last spring, The New York Times partnered with Verizon and launched a 5G journalism lab despite the fact that the telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe.
To explore what kind of storytelling opportunities 5G might enable, this year we’ve launched a 5G Journalism Lab. We’ve partnered with Verizon, which is providing us with early access to 5G networking and equipment for us to experiment with.
The publication has also defended 5G as being safe and that opponents have been influenced by Russian meddlers and/or they’re just nut jobs.
Professor Tom Butler of University College Cork filed a complaint with the Office of the Press Ombudsman for the Press Council of Ireland about a cell phone story written by William Broad for The New York Times (William J. Broad, “The 5G Health Hazard That Isn’t;” New York Times, July 16, 2019) and reprinted by The Irish Times (William J. Broad, “Are there any real links between wireless technology and health?,” September 5, 2019).
The Press Ombudsman concluded that the Broad story violated the truth and accuracy code of practice of the Press Council of Ireland.
Requests from doctors and scientists for 5G moratoriums started in 2017. Another one was recently submitted to President Trump. People and animals have been getting sick where 5G has been turned on.
Of course, all sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation – 1G through 4G – are also biologically and environmentally harmful. Pollution from all sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (“Electrosmog”) has also been a problem before 5G. The “Race for 5G” will add A LOT more to this. The “Race” even includes blasting 5G at Earth from space with satellites. Can you blame people for being opposed to this?’
