I'm curious what the normie take on how the Corona Virus pandemic is being portrayed in the western media, by different officials and by politicians?
Ever single pitch I've had for articles in the last week has had the note of "talk about C-19 as well" tacked to it.
I've had conversations with colleagues, editors, media analysts who are overjoyed that Corona-chan is boosting "trust in the media" again, putting eyes on screens, papers in hands and clicks on news sites as people scramble for the latest updates.
On the contrary, other colleagues have expressed concern about how this is being exploited for political/social/economic gains. They've expressed concern that the mainstream narrative is, basically, if you aren't running around panicking, you're "dangerous" and going to "get people killed".
Politically, Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, is using this "pandemic" to shit on Trump.
Do you trust what someone has to say, just because they are a scientist? Are they always altruistic, pure beings or can they use their position unjustly?
Do you believe this just because someone makes an estimation based on some estimated model? If it was true, how does she plan on explaining the lack of visual evidence to support this?
Finally, are "Boomers" correct? Is this crisis being exploited to get rid of Trump?
MAHER: Could I ask about the economy? Because this economy is going pretty well. [Laughter] What? Why was that funny?
SHERMICHAEL SINGLETON: It is going well … for now.
MAHER: Thank you. That’s my question. I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point. And by the way, I’m hoping for it. Because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.
Is it possible that this crisis is being exploited for political/social/economic reasons, or is all the panic perfectly justified?
