No End To The Mainstream Media’s Coronavirus Hypocrisy

“Get a grippe, America. The flu is a much bigger threat than coronavirus, for now,” chides the Washington Post.

Oh yeah, America.  If we’re wrong we’ll just blame Donald Trump….yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket.  Oh, and by the way, the Flu has only “killed 25,000 so far” which is not so “extraordinary” and it “clearly poses a bigger and more pressing peril” than the “new coronavirus from China.”

Washington Post – The rapidly spreading virus has closed schools in Knoxville, Tenn., cut blood donations to dangerous levels in Cleveland and prompted limits on hospital visitors in Wilson, N.C. More ominously, it has infected as many as 26 million people in the United States in just four months, killing up to 25,000 so far.

In other words, a difficult but not extraordinary flu season in the United States, the kind most people shrug off each winter or handle with rest, fluids and pain relievers if they contract the illness.

But this year, a new coronavirus from China has focused attention on diseases that can sweep through an entire population, rattling the public despite the current magnitude of the threat. Clearly, the flu poses the bigger and more pressing peril; a handful of cases of the new respiratory illness have been reported in the United States, none of them fatal or apparently even life-threatening.

Washington Post Thinks Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren Is On A Bit Of A Roll

The Washington Post ponders, “Why Elizabeth Warren is getting such good press.

Pocahonky Warren – 1023rd Honky/0001th Poca

It seems like every day a new story breaks about how Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) is climbing in the polls, releasing a new policy proposal, “winning” a primary debate or taking some other step toward becoming the Democratic presidential nominee. The volume and general positivity of Warren coverage has led some to believe that the media has collectively decided she should be the nominee and is doing everything we can to make it so.

Could it be, WaPo, that you forgot that ‘The Media’ is a beast that loves to feed at the same trough that the rest of the herd feeds.  Hence you get so many ‘Flavor of the Day’ stories.

There was Beto before started grabbing guns.  Then Kamala before she met Tulsi.  Then Joe when he finally got in, but started bleeding from the eyes – Ukraine…never heard of it.  And, of course, there’s  Mayor Pete before everyone found out that he was a self-righteous Alfred E. Neuman look a like.  Barney’s in the hospital, so we’ll leave him in Intensive Care with the rest of the also rans.

So with 13 months left until election, there’s plenty of time to see new favorites — and even old ones.  Hillary, mayhaps?

Erik Wemple Accuses Sean Hannity Of Being A Partisan ‘Opinion’ Leader

The Washington Post’s, so-called Media Critic, Erik Wemple, accuses FoxNews’ Sean Hannity, of being corruptly biased in his column, “Sean Hannity comes face to face with his own corruption.”  Mr. Wimpie wrote,

Sean Hannity is a study in certainty. The mainstream media is corrupt. President Trump is a patriot and a fabulous president who has followed through on his campaign promises, despite a deep state dead set on his undoing. Democrats are awful. Absolutism, meet your designated television-news emissary.

The truth is that Erik Wimpie hates anyone on FoxNews, especially since the time he was totally ‘owned’ during his appearance with FoxNews’ Tucker Carlson. Despite repeated offers to have a showdown with Carlson, mano-a-mano, Wimpie prefers to snipe at the FoxNews talent from afar.

Wimpie continues.
