We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Zerohedge is no longer a reliable site, if it ever was. Entertaining, yes.
The regional business managers at pharmaceutical companies have nothing to do with science and should not be regarded as sources of information on that angle of things. We should ask ourselves if the situation were reversed would any of the vaccine-hesitant be persuaded by a regional business manager who said "It's perfectly safe." Of course not. The cry would go up that he was just trying to sell product.

If you're referring to the first link, Zerohedge has nothing to do with it. They are just relaying information from Project Veritas. If you don't think Zerohedge is reliable, they provide the link to PV so you can view it for yourself.
How does reversing the situation provide any different perspective? Reporting that the pharma companies claim their vaccines are perfectly safe is the same as reporting that "dog bites man." The Project Veritas video is newsworthy because it's in contrast to what is being considered common knowledge.
And I would bet that most regional business managers at J&J are scientists in terms of education and experience. You don't lose your scientific credentials just because you get promoted to management.
I fail to see why the job title of a person is significant, or for that matter, what his motivation might be if I know he is telling an obvious truth. That truth is that nobody knows the long term effects of any of the Wuhan flu vaccines.
In addition to that truth, there is also the truth that there have been many more deaths associated with the Wuhan flu vaccines than all previously released vaccines put together (well over 10,000) as reported in the VAERS database. There is also a Harvard study that claims that it is likely that only one percent of incidents are reported to the VAERS database. And in the ‘70s when we were dealing with the Swine flu, the vaccine developed for it was pulled before there were only fifty deaths attributed to it.
But if titles or labels are important to you, it might be interesting to know that one of the inventors of mRNA technology, Dr. Robert Malone, got one of the mRNA vaccines and now regrets it.
I am retired military and a big supporter of the military. But I have to say that almost everything the top brass has been telling us about Afghanistan has been BS. We weren't succeeding there. Keeping 2500 there would simply mean losing a few more soldiers lives every few weeks. It would continue to cost billions and billions for "claimed" important projects where the money is simply stolen and a few dozen very rich Afghans buy yachts and live the good life in some Italian or French resort port. ALL of the good work we supposedly did in 20 years was overturned by the Taliban in 24 hours after we left. Would 20 more years made a difference?
On a related subject; why were tens of thousands of Afghans given U.S. citizenship and green cards? Who does this crap? Probably the state department but why? Were our officials bribed? Are the Afghans simply smarter than our state department and took advantage of our stupidity? Oh, wait! They are going to tell us it was mission essential; that they couldn't have accomplished all those "successes" over their without the help of these Afghans and we then had to reward them with citizenship. Wait! How is that any different than "the Afghans simply smarter than our state department and took advantage of our stupidity?
