Irresponsible reporting


My wife was watching the Today show this morning while I was eating breakfast. I don't usually watch that garbage but I decided to see what they were saying. It was all totally irresponsible.

First, we've all seen the videos of people struggling with corona. The Today Show showed a Catholic priest in Northern Ireland who is only 30-something but he's in the hospital and obviously not feeling well. They showed him saying corona is coming and it wants to kill you. Very dark and dramatic. Well, what they're not saying is that for every person like this priest, there are far more who have no symptoms, mild symptoms, or moderate symptoms and don't even need medical care. Right after the priest, they showed military vehicles rolling in the streets which gives the impression of Marshall Law. This is an example of the media blatantly trying to incite panic. They don't lie but they don't tell the whole truth.

Corona is serious but the media has a responsibility to tell the truth and the whole truth.
