Our “alternative” conference got excellent coverage on Russian TV, http://rt.com/Top_News/2010-07-18/aids-conference-vienna.html [Note added 2017-3-15: RT has apparently wiped its archive, and the link is now a Wayback-Machine recovery of the original page; but the recovery does not include the videos that had been linked to the original web page].
Of course the official conference is getting reams of coverage, including for blatant lies. The Frankfurter Allgemeine today credits “combined international efforts” for bringing the rate of new infections from 3 million in 2001 down to 2.7 now, when the change is actually owing to a slight decrease in computer estimates forced because even the mainstream couldn´t find a basis for the earlier figures even in their computers.
Vienna was chosen as the conference´s locale because it´s close to Eastern Europe and Central Asia, where the “epidemic” is growing fastest…
fueled, of course, by dirty needles (see earlier posts on Estonia etc.) Does anyone in the mainstream, or any journalist parroting this sort of thing, consider what sort of mass behavior it would take to have an epidemic caused by needle-sharing? Like that “in parts of Russia” where the rate of new infections has gone up **700 percent**
