Translation: taxpayers everywhere have a duty to bail out big-spending state governments using #COVID as an excuse to implement a “progressive” agenda.
Why, exactly? https://t.co/cefn1w2g7o

Is it amazing? Or just utterly predictable. The media is constantly wrong in so many ways

Revealed this week about RussiaGate:
Everything the MSM told you was a lie
Everything Congressional Democrats told you was a lie
Everything the "Intelligence Community" told you was a lie
Everything we told you about the Russia Hoax was the Truth
Nobody on the left cares

Ask yourself why the media called it the Wuhan virus until the moment the Chinese government began their big propaganda push, then it instantly became racist.
Our media is much, much worse than just biased.

REMINDER: We should be hammering the hell out of China for their culpability in creating this pandemic, to say nothing of their disgusting attempts to push untruthful propaganda to deflect blame. https://t.co/9LFXeUc3jf

Joe Biden says he'll bring dignity back to the Presidency. Nothing is more dignified than a confused, bungling, old man bumping into walls with a long history of groping and hair sniffing and dozens of money scandals in his family.

Current status on the 10 East heading to downtown LA. Way worse than yesterday. It seems the stay at home order is a paper tiger at this point. People are over it and patience is at an all time low. Local officials are losing control of their messaging. #COVIDー19 @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/TXGNMuMuaE

CNN really ran a viewer question about “stage 4 TDS” (aka ‘Trump derangement syndrome’) being related to covid in their viewer question scroll… pic.twitter.com/1tW2oQeMc5

Overheard on Twitter:
"When is the American public going to realize that it’s not China that the broadcast news divisions are protecting, but the globalist entertainment companies that own the news divisions, and which need Asian markets for maxxing out entertainment profits?"
— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) April 7, 2020
The companies that own the major news networks, NBC, ABC, and CBS, all do significant business in China. On the print side, top U.S. newspapers like the Washington Post and New York Times have been criticized for running paid China Daily inserts. What they were paid for these inserts is still unknown.
By contrast, conservative news companies are much less involved in China. Conservative radio giant Salem, whose attempt to buy Tribune several years ago provoked an enormous freakout from media reporters over consolidation, is all-American. And Fox, after several troubled attempts to break into the Chinese market—including sending a News Corp team to help build People’s Daily a website—has mostly given up, after selling its Asia-Pacific operations to Disney over the last two years.
Disney owns ABC and has a park in Shanghai. It also owns ESPN, which was criticized for its coverage of China’s retaliation against the NBA earlier this year over one team owner’s support of the Hong Kong protests. But other than ABC, Disney is relatively uninvolved in news.
Comcast, on the other hand, has a much larger footprint in the U.S. media landscape, between NBC News, CNBC, and MSNBC. The company’s role in fostering cultural exchange is truly historic: they’ve brought to millions of American homes a customer service experience akin to a utility provider in a communist country, and have invested billions to bring “Minion Land” and a Harry Potter village to Beijing, with the help of a state-owned investment vehicle.
What might the Chinese government do if it were displeased with something that ran on MSNBC? Perhaps they’d have a tense conversation with their partners at 30 Rockefeller Plaza about the forthcoming slate of movie releases in China. Or it might be worse, given their decision to cut off all NBA games to retaliate against one team owner.
But evidently China is pleased with their partnership so far, and no NBC journalists had their residency permits pulled earlier this month. A March 10 post on the New York consulate’s website touted a recent meeting with Comcast execs:
Comcast Corporation is not only the participator of the increasingly close cultural exchanges, but also the contributor and beneficiary of deeper economic exchanges between China and the US. The NBC and the Universal Studios Theme Park in Beijing are witnesses of the in-depth development of Sino-US economic and trade relations and increasingly close cultural exchanges.
Consul General Huang Ping made a point of discussing China’s response to the coronavirus, as well as news coverage in the U.S.: “China’s prevention and control practices have earned valuable time and experience for other countries. …We hope that the NBC and other U.S. media will objectively and fairly report China’s efforts to control the epidemic.”
The same people who say Trump is “giving medical advice”………
– Act like Bill Nye is a scientist
– Pretended Al Gore was a credible scientist for climate change
– Act like Bill Gates is a doctor
– say a 16 year old is a climate expert
