NOS: Fake news and lies – A whole series of obvious examples

The NOS (Dutch news organization) spreads fake news, lies with figures and insists on the political preference of the NOS editors.

On January 19, the NOS posted a message on its website with the following headline: “Commotion on taunting Vietnam veteran of Native American descent.”

According to the public broadcaster, a tribal elder was harassed by boys with Trump caps during a demonstration.

Fake news

A day later, on January 20, presenter Jeroen Overbeek said: “In the US it is very inappropriate to ridicule war veterans. The school has therefore also apologised and announced measures.”

NOS correspondent Wouter Zwart tweeted about this post: “These images shock many Americans. An Indian and Vietnam veteran who was in DC for Indigenous March. He was surrounded, intimidated and laughed at for minutes by young people who were there for March for Life (anti-abortion).”

First, it turned out that ‘Vietnam veteran’ Nathan Phillips has been military, but never served in Vietnam.

Secondly, there is fake news here. The uncut images show that the Indian is stepping down on the boys, rather than the other way around as the NOS claimed.

In addition, the boys were scolded by another group, the Black Hebrew Israelites, but nothing about it in the news.

A rectification has never been placed. In fact, the NIS has kept the hoax dead.

When a video pops up on the internet on January 21, a boy from Spijkenisse is beaten up, the NOS does not tell you that the perpetrators have been tinted.

The students with Trump caps are clearly in the picture, while the faces of the young people who have been tinted have been rendered unrecognizable.

Lying with numbers

Then another round of “lying with numbers.”

The NOS is clearly not happy with the yellow hesjes. On December 22, 2018, the number of protesters in France was estimated at around 24,000 by the Nos. The French police had over 300,000.

On 9 February, the NOS Journaal said that there were 4000 yellow hesjes on their feet that day.

The French newspaper Le Monde mentioned that there were almost 13 times as many: 51,400. Another source was talking about over 111,000 (!) demonstrators.


Also about Venezuela the NOS spreads fake news. On February 8, the Journal said that venezuelan President Maduro’s army is holding back American relief supplies for the starving population at the main border crossing with Colombia.

What does it show? The border crossing has been closed since 2016 due to disagreement between the two countries, not because of the arrival of relief goods.

No time to speak

The correspondent reported that “we have seen a significant increase in the number of extreme right-wing demonstrations in recent years”. However, he did not mention facts or figures. A large part of the News was about the “demonstration” in Washington, where only 20 people finally showed up. Twenty. On 1 August, the NOS paid attention to the burqa ban in Denmark. Around 200 women in that country wear face-covering clothing. The NOS only spoke to people who were against the ban. People who were in favor of the ban and who were the majority of the Danish population, did not receive speaking time.

Fake news about fake news

On January 11, the NOS took an investigation that would show that older people shared the most fake news around the 2016 US presidential election.

Media platform The New Reporter said of the research: “These are not robust numbers to fully sypport the hypothosis that age affects the spread of fake news.”

Video: NOS reporter gets a sticker on his shoulder with the text ”NOS = FAKE NEWS. This happened on the farmers protest in the Netherlands on 18 december 2019.

There is also an example of framing of an interview of Putin:

Please share this information to make people aware of the tax-payed manipulation of the government.

Against Veganism and Vegetarianism

Many times i have spoken out against veganism and vegetarianism and i will continue to do this. There are many reasons to do so. I would like to name some of the main reasons and why it is needed to go against this.

One of the main reasons is that this diet is really not healthy. To avoid meat and other animal products will cause a deficiancy of many nutriënts like vitamins A, B6, B12, creatine and taurine. You can suggest that this can be replaced with supplements but have you ever thought about how that is made? It is garbage that in many cases is not even something that you are able to digest, so your body can’t use it.

Luckily There are more and more ex-vegans and -vegetarians that come to the knowledge that their diet was causing many health problems (see previous post). There are many reported problems related to veganism like convulsions, memory problems, feeling cold (even though it is warm), digestive problems and having not enough energy for anything. These are just a few examples of symptoms that i have came across researching this.

Many replacement foods can’t even be called food. Take a look at the following list of what is in a so called meat replacer:

Instead of 1 piece of chicken you have in this thing a list of 20 ingrediënts. It must be made illegal to have a name for thise products with ”chicken” or ”meat” in it bacause it is a misleading to do so!

”It must be made illegal to have a name for thise products with ”chicken” or ”meat” in it”

Because of the misleading nature of following certain diets makes that it is needed to warn people about this. The problems that are being described by ex-vegans and ex-vegetarians must be a big warning to anyone who is thinking about this.

11 Reasons to (not) go vegan

11 Reasons to become a vegan! – (Please dont do it)

Like most humans, you’re probably trying to do your best to live a hellthy lifestyle. You follow everything that your govenment told you and ignore every sign from your own body. But you still eat eggs, meat and cheese. You’ve probably heard a few good arguments from people who choose torture themselves with plant-based diet. There are several reasons for different people to get motivated to starve themselves very slowly. Whether you’re already on your way to a vegetable vegan diet or just walking around with the thought, here are 11 reasons to think about.

1. ”It is simple”
Cooking can be difficult for many people, especially after a long day of work. This becomes even harder when can’t even get enough body heat due to malnourishment. You have to avoid chicken, fish, beef or pork. Luckily there are many replacements for that filled with garbage that can’t even be called food. Or you can make simple meals based on proteins such as beans or grains, and add some green vegetables, and some healthy fats such as a dressing of olive oil or an avocado. And, you have instand a meal that makes you bloated like a melon and fart for a week.

2. ”It is healthy”
When you get vegan, you’ll automatically eat so much more vegetables, because there is hardly any nutriënts in them, but you’ll also want to build your meals around vegetables because it tastes like shit. When you are almost starving yourselves you also will get some more company with your doctor. He can help you ignoring the signs of your body and give you supplements to switch to a chemical diet.

3. ”It makes sense”
If you hate yourselves, then you know that hating nature and humans is the right choice. That of course means that you don’t have any connection with nature and only choose to starve yourselves out of a indoctrinated belief. Eating meat replacers makes sense, because you crave meat. These replacers literally has an ingrediënt list with stuff that you have no clue about what it is and where it comes from. You don’t even know how to pronounce the name of these ingrediënts.

4. ”It can help you to fall off”
Vegans are the only group of people who have a BMI average of that of a walking stick. So if you want to be hungry and want to count calories, go green!

”Vegans are the only group of people who have a BMI average of that of a walking stick”

5. ”It is the best way to help animals”
Did you know that every vegan kills more than 10.000 animals a year? There is simply no easier way to kill animals. There are millions of insects killed just by the use of pesticides alone to produce food with no nutritional value. When you count all the bioaccumulation of the pesticides this number would be drasticly increased!

6. ”It is empowerment”
If you make the switch to a plant-based diet, you will be extremely proud of yourself. Who can say to be so indoctrinated to even have no value for themselves and all other humans? You have made yourselves believe to be no longer be dependent on nutritious food. Your confidence will rise (along with the risk of getting signs of undernourishment) and you will want to continue learning how to fool youselves better with fake meat. What is better than healthier living?

7. ”It is inspiring”
When you become a vegan, you do find ways to make others guilty and mislead them into your cult – you also increase your risk for cardiovascular diseases. Sometimes it’s really fun to feel you are part of a bigger cult that believes in the same irrational things. Going Vegan is definitely a big step. It may be destroying your healthy days for good.

8. ”It can make you live longer”
Numerous scientific studies have been conducted to measure the impact of a plant-based diet on increasing the risk of serious illnesses, including diabetes and Heart disease, with positive results. A vegan diet may cause cancer and other deseases that will make you live longer in pain.

9. ”You look sexy and are sexy”
Vegans are often thinner and are always are cold – even when they had a hot shower for half an hour, which is perfect for you if you are coldblooded. Plus, what is sexier than someone who not only looks like a hungry crow, but who also has no compassion for other humans?

10. ”Animal products are gross”
Every time you eat a meal with only vegetables, you bring yourselves to the thought that you are better than other humans, because of your special diet. You also convince yourselves that there are no ways to eat meat that can be considered healthy, beacause the government told so.

11. ”It’s trendy”
Okay, so you don’t always want to do something just because it’s popular. However, being vegan is now more being pushed down our throats than ever, and that’s exactly why it might be the right choice for you to stop and think for yourselves. Vegan cookbooks and bloggers are funded by people who only want to earn money off it and don’t care about your health. When something gets trendy, it is always a move to make money or a way to push a thought as ”acceptable”. Famous vegans try to to make you part of the community to joint their absurdity.


There are many reasons to not go vegan. It is a good development that there are more and more Ex-vegans and vegetarians that are convinced that their diet was not good. Their diet made them in some cases deadly sick. Please do your own research on this. To help you i added below some stories of vegans that came to the conclusion that their diet was not good. So ditch veganism!
