As a test of misinformation, we have at the moment the supposedly neutral BBC headlining the unsuitability of Fiona Woolf as Head of the Government Child Abuse Enquiry, with some victims depositing a legal challange to her appointment on the grounds that she is not impartial. What the BBC conveniently fails to mention is that Mrs Woolf is currently just coming to the end of her term as Lord Mayor of London, often held to be a political post second only in power to the Prime Minister. Of course she knows all the great and the good, and of course she has been lining up a new job for when her year in office ends in a couple of weeks time. Does knowing Leon Brittain disqualify her, because he is one of the people complained about? Only if it affects her judgement.

But it does show we're in the runup to an election, and neutral reporting has already died.

Misinformation connection: if they can do that with the kids, can you trust them on our health?

I think he's paraphrasing some Glen Beck prophecies on TV.

Beck forecast that Ebola would wipe out one quarter to half of the human race and bring an end to civilization.

Starting now.

It's God's punishment for Obama's handling of Benghazi.

I was waiting for an ebola joke!

It's in Mali, and a guy just back from there in NYC has a fever and is being quarantined. Could just be a fever, though.

It's unlikely Ebola could destroy civilisation, it would have to manage 80% plus across wide sectors to destroy key specialities. The plague got near with 50-70% in the feudal civilisation of 1348, but the resolution to that built in greater resilience by allowing craft specialities to appear, which have increased ever since. We also have a massive literature stock to rebuild lost skills. The biggest risk will be from disruption to a just-in-time delivery network, particularly in key continuous process plant.
And if the worst comes to the worst, our skills as acoustic instrumentalists will be in demand for many long evenings with no TV.

I think a much smaller number would do it.
It does not have to kill people to stop them turning up for work.
People would stay home to care for children and loved ones, and many would abandon the cities.

It is destroying the fragile economy of liberia...forty percent of farmers in some area have abandoned their farms...problems with transporting goods. It does not have to affect a population only through the virus. Food shortages are there. Aa

NY guy does have ebola, and again, people who don't understand how this virus works are all freaked out that he did stuff before he had a fever.

As soon as he had a fever he called it in. What he did before he had a fever is not problematic. Even if he did go bowling, and out to eat.

but what is the line between having a fever and not having a fever, and if you are not paying attention, thinking you are now home free, do you even notice a minor fever? I think there is not a line of now you are totally safe and now you are totally contagious. I think like almost all of nature, there is going to be a distribution..a few shedding viruses, then a few more, then a whole bunch.

You're right about the brightness of the line. At least, this guy did not think for a minute that he was home free, he knew way better than that! He was worried as all get out and taking his temp all the time.

You really aren't contagious till you have a fever, we do know that, and especially since the wife and kiddies of the Dallas case didn't get it living with him being already horribly ill, NYC really shouldn't worry about what he did before he had a fever, which he called in instantly.

Heroic nurse Nina Pham is reported Ebola-free and has been discharged from the hospital.

Equally heroic Amber Vinson, also free of the virus, is expected to be released soon.

Cameraman Ashoka Mukpo was released a few days ago.

In NYC, Dr. Spencer Craig is reported as being in good spirits. His temperature when he called the medics was 100.3, not "103" as was widely reported.

His fiancee and two others are in quarantine, but he may not have been ill enough to have infected anyone. Shortly before he took his temperature, he'd gone for a three-mile jog.
