Wayne Allyn Root Loses Column After Promoting Silver-Based Product as Coronavirus Killer

Wayne Allyn Root, the Libertarian Party’s 2008 Vice presidential nominee, lost his column with the Las Vegas Review-Journal after promoting a silver-based product he claimed would kill coronavirus.

During his March 11 show on Newsmax TV, Root remarked “You fear coronavirus, here’s a very important message now” before a commercial ran for MyDoctorSuggests.com, which advertised an alkaline-structured silver product, claimed to kill viruses. Root has previously said he is addicted to the product and drinks it “all day long like I’m an alcoholic drinking booze.” Recently, he tweeted if he ever contacts coronavirus, he will take “massive doses of alkaline structured silver.”

Las Vegas Review-Journal CEO Keith Moyer told Media Matters yesterday, “Increasingly, Mr. Root’s advertising, marketing and other media interests had begun to broadly diverge from the journalistic standards and intentions of the Review-Journal. That compelled us to end our relationship with him. We wish him well.”

Additionally, the office of the New York Attorney general sent a letter advising Root “to immediately cease and desist from making misleading claims as they violate New York’s consumer protection statutes … which prohibit fraudulent and deceptive business practices and false advertising.”

Root has not responded to the news via Twitter. In the past, he has used the platform to thank Media Matters for providing free coverage.

    Root always was a TV infomercial huckster. Some things never change.

    Given the inevitable inflation resulting from the trillion dollar “stimulus” there are much more important uses for silver. Junk silver – pre-1964 dimes and quarters – are the best deal.

    It goes without saying that you pay too much for the silver in the product that Wayne Allan Root is promoting, and it is not exchangeable like silver dimes and quarters.

    Vitamin C is out of stock at Amazon, but there is one supplement that perhaps might be effective against acute respiratory symptoms of coronavirus. l-arginine

    The FDA just approved “emergency expanded access” for nitric oxide delivery systems based on its clinical effectiveness against Sars. But the general public hasn’t figured out yet that he body converts l-arginine intro nitric oxide. And you can mega dose that motherfucker w/o side effects.

    Good! People pushing unsafe and untested crap SHOULD be held to account.
