Wow, I never knew.The Spanish Flu was actually the American Flu. Probably Obama's fault by your twisted logic.
It was blamed on neutral Spain.
The "media" gave it the "Spanish Flu" because we had censors, how interesting.
Seems to be a constant, Virus, media, censors.
Anyhoo...Where is St Barry of Obama these days?To maintain morale, World War I censors minimized early reports of illness and mortality in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States. Papers were free to report the epidemic's effects in neutral Spain, such as the grave illness of King Alfonso XIII, and these stories created a false impression of Spain as especially hard hit. This gave rise to the pandemic's nickname, "Spanish flu"
