    They may have reported that he won, but there was nothing like that.

      They could print 100% accurate stories and still push an agenda.

        Its pretty goddamn ridiculous that New York has approved other tests for COVID more than 6 months ago and I can't find a site that doesnt use the deep nasopharyngeal swab.

            The President and his inner circle are the biggest national security threat in a generation. You have to imagine for decades our adversaries have dreamed up a scenario where they could infect America's leadership. Now thanks to months of ineptitude and carelessness, we've done it for them.

            Joint Chiefs in isolation after Coast Guard admiral tests positive for coronavirus, Pentagon says

            Members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are in isolation after the Coast Guard’s No. 2 officer tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the Pentagon said Tuesday in a statement.

            Adm. Charles W. Ray, the vice commandant of the Coast Guard, first tested positive for the virus on Monday, said Rear Admiral Jon Hickey, a service spokesman. It is not clear when or where the admiral was infected, but his travels in recent days include attending a Sept. 27 event at the White House recognizing Gold Star military families and a meeting at the Pentagon on Friday with the military’s top generals.

              He is also pressuring the CDC to put pressure on the drug companies to expedite the vaccine. Pretty soon they will have a vaccine and his cult members as test specimens

                In regards to WaPo, it’s fair to think they are, at least, careful when dealing with the longtime DC members. Most notably, what we identify as establishment or moderates. It’s not a big town, journalists and pols are at the same parties, restaurants, fundraisers, schools, etc. Different ownership changes “arrangements” on some level, but if Biden, Leahy, Grassley, etc have decades of giving you access, you’re less likely to rock that boat than with Synema or AOC.

                  Agreed. I’d also say that their agenda, like most mainstream media, is basically corporatist.

                                Dying in a Leadership Vacuum


                                Covid-19 has created a crisis throughout the world. This crisis has produced a test of leadership. With no good options to combat a novel pathogen, countries were forced to make hard choices about how to respond. Here in the United States, our leaders have failed that test. They have taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy.

                                The magnitude of this failure is astonishing. According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering,1 the United States leads the world in Covid-19 cases and in deaths due to the disease, far exceeding the numbers in much larger countries, such as China. The death rate in this country is more than double that of Canada, exceeds that of Japan, a country with a vulnerable and elderly population, by a factor of almost 50, and even dwarfs the rates in lower-middle-income countries, such as Vietnam, by a factor of almost 2000. Covid-19 is an overwhelming challenge, and many factors contribute to its severity. But the one we can control is how we behave. And in the United States we have consistently behaved poorly.
                                The response of our nation’s leaders has been consistently inadequate. The federal government has largely abandoned disease control to the states. Governors have varied in their responses, not so much by party as by competence. But whatever their competence, governors do not have the tools that Washington controls. Instead of using those tools, the federal government has undermined them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which was the world’s leading disease response organization, has been eviscerated and has suffered dramatic testing and policy failures. The National Institutes of Health have played a key role in vaccine development but have been excluded from much crucial government decision making. And the Food and Drug Administration has been shamefully politicized,3 appearing to respond to pressure from the administration rather than scientific evidence. Our current leaders have undercut trust in science and in government,4 causing damage that will certainly outlast them. Instead of relying on expertise, the administration has turned to uninformed “opinion leaders” and charlatans who obscure the truth and facilitate the promulgation of outright lies.
                                Anyone else who recklessly squandered lives and money in this way would be suffering legal consequences. Our leaders have largely claimed immunity for their actions. But this election gives us the power to render judgment. Reasonable people will certainly disagree about the many political positions taken by candidates. But truth is neither liberal nor conservative. When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent. We should not abet them and enable the deaths of thousands more Americans by allowing them to keep their jobs.
