ABC is quietly sweeping under the rug their own sensational report they hyped all day Wednesday, which suggested the Trump administration ignored warnings of an impending pandemic, back in November. That report is now in dispute, as the very military intelligence agency which ABC’s unnamed sources cited, has come out denying the existence of such an intelligence assessment.
With everyone’s attention focused on the coronavirus outbreak, a reporter affiliated with the Communist Party of China took advantage of an opportunity on Monday to attend a press briefing and ask President Trump questions that led him to ask if she is “working for China.” The woman who attended the briefing is actually aligned with the Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV outlet and a member of the White House Foreign Press Group with rotating access to White House press briefings.
Clemson University football coach Dabo Swinney's confidence in America to gain the upper hand on COVID-19 is misplaced "jingoistic bravado" and an "embrace of ignorance." From Dabo to the Dumbo in the White House, it's part of conservative efforts to socially distance themselves from science, says Deadspin writer Jim Rich.
Since the Orange Man has stated that hydroxychloroquine could be great aid in treating coronavirus, liberals reflexively reacted that it must be bad. All evidence pointing to the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine must now be written off by them as some sort of Trump delusion based upon only anecdotal evidence. In addition, anybody touting that treatment must be derided along with Trump.
A big example of this attitude came on Tuesday in Politico with a rather hostile attitude towards Florida Governor Ron Desantis.
With British Prime Minister Boris Johnson still in intensive care with COVID-19 on Wednesday, MSNBC's Keir Simmons reporting from London wondered if Johnson's "populist politics" may have something to do with his illness.
Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri has frequently used humor in her items (usually placed in Saturday’s print edition), so it was no surprise when her latest item tried to concoct a post-apocalyptic view of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a fanatic, heartless, ruthless scourge still confirming federal court judges despite the fact that “a great serpent swallowed the Earth.”
As the death toll of the Wuhan Virus continued to climb in New York and set new grime records, many had started to criticize the state and local governments for dragging their feet in the beginning. Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News was the only evening broadcast program to direct criticism at something other than the Trump administration. A few hours later, CNN host Chris Cuomo used Prime Time to give Andrew Cuomo, his brother and governor of New York, a forum to bash those critics.
Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem has been building up to some steamy romance between the male and female witch recruits. Nothing would prepare teen viewers, however, for over two minutes devoted to the recruits brazenly having sex with each other up against trees, in fields, and in plain view and hearing of others.
We’ve now been shown just five episodes of Hulu’s series Little Fires Everywhere, and there has already been plenty of liberal lecturing so far. But the Kerry Washington/Reese Witherspoon-produced drama isn’t done lecturing yet. On Wednesday’s sixth episode, “The Uncanny,” there were jabs at President Ronald Reagan, Christians, and motherhood.
Wednesday’s New York Times featured political reporter Matt Flegenheimer's 1,200-word anti-Trump screed disguised as a “news analysis”: “Is Our Most Important Election Ahead, or Is It Behind Us?” He quoted various Democratic candidates calling 2020 “the most important election” of our lives, then laid every bit of blame for the coronavirus response at the feet of President Trump: "Of course, the answer to Mr. Trump’s initial prompt has always been evident to most Democrats. At stake were health care plans, immigration policies, a generation of court seats and now, they say, many lives that would not have been lost to the coronavirus under more capable executive stewardship."
If President Trump was for a Wuhan Virus treatment the liberal media wanted nothing to do with it. Over the last couple of days, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC have spotlighted and hyped all sorts of possible treatments for the deadly virus, including treatments that wouldn’t be ready for months. At the same time, they were bashing antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, which was promoted by the President and had strong anecdotal evidence that it was effective.
As many liberal journalists suggest Fox News Channel should be sued for discouraging people from taking the coronavirus seriously and endangering lives, Fox News is offering hopeful stories that almost every liberal outlet refuses to touch. Take Michigan state Rep. Karen Whitsett, who came down the coronavirus, and credits her doctor and hydroxychloroquine – and President Trump touting the anti-malarial drug on TV – for saving her life.
Where there is a national crisis, there is typically a leftist late night host attempting to politicize and exploit the situation. Count among them NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers, who hosted Senator Kamala Harris on Tuesday night’s show to skewer conservatives and President Trump alike.
In their rush to defend the World Health Organization from President Trump’s criticism of the agency’s failures in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, on Wednesday, journalists on CBS and ABC ignored that the WHO initially promoted false Chinese propaganda about the disease and routinely lavished the authoritarian regime with effusive praise.
Move over big government! One Big Tech leader is the latest mover and shaker of liberalism now. Twitter and Square head Jack Dorsey pledged a whopping 28 percent of his wealth to help fund coronavirus relief, and promised the rest to girl’s health and education and Universal Basic Income (UBI). Failed Democratic presidential primary candidate Andrew Yang, whom Dorsey mourned over when he left the race, proposed the "Freedom Dividend," or UBI, as one of his main issues.
