The Coverage Szilveszter Csollany’s Death Shows You Being Called An “Anti-Vaxxer” Is More About What You Think, Than What You Do
he Independent has put out an early (and strong) entry for “Worst Journalism of the Year” award, reporting yesterday the death of Hungarian gymnastics coach Szilveszter Csollany under the headline: Anti-vax Olympic gold medalist Szilveszter Csollany dies of Covid, aged 51. The glaring issue with this headline becomes clear just three paragraphs into the article [our emphasis]: While Csollany had, according to [Hungarian newspaper Blikk], expressed anti-vaccination views on social media, the six-time World Championship medallist had been vaccinated to allow him to continue to work as a gymnastics coach. The journalism is terrible, criminally bad. The evidence supplied for Csollany’s supposed “anti-vaccination views” is non-existent. Second-hand hearsay, at best. No direct quotations, no sources provided. OffGuardian would be ashamed to publish something so flimsy. Any outlet should. But, of course, that isn’t the most egregious part – as you can tell from our emphasised quote – the supposed “anti-vaxxer” had been vaccinated. To bury that in the body, under that headline, is deliberate deception. They know many people will read the title and assume he hadn’t had the vaccine without ever reading the body of the text, and they are relying on that to spread an intentionally false impression. The very definition of disinformation.
