But the MSM is too lazy to do the journalistic “right thing,” and far too invested in deceptive hyping in order to keep the fear and panic going, and to blame President Trump in this election cycle.
In addition, any time there is a state or federal presser on COVID-19 updates, this should absolutely be the very first information out of whoever’s mouth at the microphone. In fact, copies of the stats and data should be handed out to the press members sitting in attendance, and those reporters should be required then to have it posted on the front page of their papers, or on the front page of their news website(s).
If they can mandate that we wear masks and social distance and whatever the Hell else, the damned MSM can be mandated to publish these numbers every day openly and in clear plain sight. And ‘recovery’ numbers need to be added to the above stats.
Why, you ask?
Well, I posted this in an earlier TUS post this morning, but worth posting again…
A survey shows that Americans believe some 30 million of us have died from the coronavirus, which means they are off by more than 2,000 percent.
Although fewer than 150,000 Americans have died at the hands of the China Virus, when asked to pick a percentage of the American population who succumbed to the virus, Americans chose an average of nine percent.
With a population of — give or take — 330 million, nine percent rounds up to 30 million dead, when the truth is that not even one percent of the population has been lost to the virus — that would be 3.3 million dead. What we’re talking about is something less than one-tenth of one percent — which happens to be one of the lowest rates in the world.
It gets worse…
When asked how many Americans have caught the virus, the average number chosen was 20 percent, so 66 million.
The real number is … … … just four million.
Are people just stupid? Do they not know there are more than 300 million people in America, or not know that fewer than 150,000 have died, or are they just that bad at math?
It’s probably a mix of all three, but as journalist Alex Berenson pointed out when commenting on the survey, the ‘panic porners’ have ‘won.’…
Read the whole thing.
I had an argument on Facebook with a guy back in April. He was convinced Montana would have 6k+ deaths, I told him it’d be less than 300. Right now it’s 64. He thought I was crazy.
