    These pressers are so weird. Trump comes out and says some gobbledygoop full of half truths and flat out lies then Pence comes out and does some "dear leader" stuff ( although he was a little better this time than last) then the pros come on with the truth, spewing facts and contradicting what the pres said. It's like three completely different press conferences. Bizarre.

      The press is the worse. I have no idea where to go for true non-bias news. It does not exist.
      Why do you say the press has been the worst? If they’ve spread misinformation, it’s been primarily by repeating what Trump has sad.

          “Not what I want to hear” does not mean biased. Trump was incompetent in handling this and that’s not a partisan take.

          Most people doing what needs to be done right now are getting the proper info from the media.

              Sorry, just got a few responses in a row and it's tough to respond to every single thing. I guess I ultimately believe that there's no response anyone could have had to make things different than they are right now. Similar things have happened before, and they have a way of working themselves out. Was Trump urging that it was like a flu ignorant? Obviously, in retrospect, it was. But who knows? If it hadn't become a pandemic, and things got better on their own (which no one can control), could it have been a great way of reassuring the public and quelling fear? Sorry, this is probably getting too philosophical rather than factual.
              Oh stop it. It was a terrible lie as soon as he said it. There's no hindsight needed.

                  The point I am trying to make is both the liberal and conservative press present information in a bias manner. Limbaugh is a fool for not taking things seriously. This is real. On the other side...MSNBC and CNN are more interested in blaming Trump...like when Rachel Maddow claimed anti Chinese bias in January when Trump stooped Chinese flights..

                    The difference being one is disinformation directly leading to reckless behavior designed to increase the spread of communicable disease with a mortality rate somewhere between 10 and 50 times the seasonal Flu depending on your risk group and how overwhelming the local health care system is and the other is being mean to a doofus who had his head in the sand until a few days ago.

                    the rest is just details.

                        Any media outlet reporting Trump’s incompetence in this manner is doing so accurately.

                          It's important to be able to distinguish news from opinion.

                            Sometimes it's xenophobia, and sometimes another country really is coming to get you. (Apologies for stealing the old line about paranoia.) We ARE talking about the People's Republic of China. Calling them 'mainland Chinese' does not remove their dubious human rights record or their unquestioned desire for regional, if not global, power.

                            Again, when judging other cultures, some higher order values will get sacrificed when people feel their survival is threatened. It may not be pretty or desirable, but I will give another culture a pass until more fundamental human values are threatened. These battles need to be chosen carefully when you are asserting American political correctness over foreign cultures.

                                Suggestion: Maybe keep politics out of this thread. There are plenty of threads to discuss the politics that go along with this issue.
