A post that has nothing to do with microbiology – but a little bit with science/media integrity, which is my other line of interest.
This is a thread that I did on Twitter. You can find the unroll by Thread Reader here: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1121304149079887873.html?refreshed=1556233869
OK, so Facebook showed me this video that turns out to be an ad for the Sleepgram pillow. It talks about a tornado, a teacher who saved children, and a scientist who sent pillows to help them sleep. It seems to be a complete fake.
Thanks so much for flagging this and doing the research. A family member inadvertently shared this, and I thought the very same thing, that it was stock photos cobbled together to jerk people’s emotions around, and not real. Grrrr!
I live in Oklahoma City and have researched this through friends I have at one of our local TV news stations. Yes, it’s fake and misleading.
