    The Media's mission is drum up anti-Trump hysteria. If you don't think they are using the virus to continue their mission, you are a zombie.

    Today I Learned: not caring about tv ratings is equivalent to publishing known falsehoods.

    So now we are back to CBS who was again caught fudging the news

    CBS News was forced to admit that some very alarming footage it aired of an overflowing NY hospital ward during coronavirus crisis was actually from Italy.

    Why do they keep doing this? Are they stupid or do they think you are stupid? No matter the answer, the American people deserve much better media than we get

    It is my understanding they used it, got caught, apologized, and then used it again.

    Sometimes I feel bad that I immediately disbelieve mainstream media on pretty much every subject. But then I am reminded of their obvious dishonesty.

    All this proves is how out of touch they are. The general population doesn't blame Trump. Part of it is their own fault. They have portrayed the virus as the end of all life on earth and trumpeted the need to shut down society. Trump did that and it has hurt the economy, but the official narrative that they created is that such drastic measures were necessary. They have also criticized Trump for not doing enough, which means they have wanted the economy to be further hurt.

    It is all so nonsensical, I think less and less people care what they say.

    Wouldn't surprise me if both stories were published on the same date.

    CNN is still being dishonest. They reported the existence of the virus, yes. I don't think anyone doubts that. I heard about the outbreak in China in mid-January personally. However, CNN wasn't calling for travel bans or quarantining then. They ignored the threat of the virus, not the existence.

    Fedo "sees the light"
    "Chris Cuomo’s coronavirus-induced fever may have subsided but the CNN anchor was red hot on Monday.

    The longtime cable host, 49, had an existential mini-crisis on his SiriusXM show, lashing out at his lucrative primetime gig and blasting President Trump as “full of s–t.”

    “I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo said. “I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”

    Trump clarified his remarks shortly afterward:

    "What I meant to say was CNN is a leftist organization, full of lying dirtbags and Libs that couldn't care less about professionalism or the truth. Sorry about the confusion."

    I can't believe the Swedes and the Brits trust their media even less than we do.

    I really don't understand how people this hypocritical are able to claim credibility with anybody. This should pretty much end Goldberg's career, but it won't.

    I don't have much trust in either, but at this point, I probably trust most of the government more than I trust most of the media. It's not that the government has become trustworthy. It's that most of the media has surpassed them in untrustworthiness.

    Corporate media is forcing me to re-examine my long held beliefs about the 1A. Are they even still "the press?"

    The argument of media vs govt and dishonesty is a mirror of the majority of our elections, you vote for the least undesirable.

    It won't be Goldberg and the people who follow her are a part of a Left wing political movement, they are not seekers of truth. The point of all communication from newspapers, to twitter, to comedians is to push forward the movement. Any communication that does not do so is attacked and the communicator is added to the list of the infidels.

    We are living through a Cultural Marxist movement. It will get nuttier and more contentious. But we need to remember what is going on. These people aren't acting on good faith but by ideological necessity.
