On Sunday, in a typical goose-stepping fashion, CNN’s Dana Bash supported the woke Biden administration’s attempt to change the language once again by asking if Fox News should be accused of killing Americans who catch the coronavirus.
The Biden administration last week began attacking social media platforms, specifically Facebook, in an effort to get platforms to censor what the administration deems as “misinformation” when people post about COVID-19 vaccines causing people to die or come down with serious illnesses or if people mention drugs like ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine as treatment options. The logic this dopy administration is using says that if more people listen to “misinformation” it will result in more deaths.
What’s really going on is the Marxists are a cult that doesn’t allow dissent or opinions outside their own orthodoxy, and because the Constitution will not allow the government to censor free speech, the Biden administration wants to remind Facebook and other platforms that they can legally harm them if they don’t do the unamerican things they want to do but are prevented by that pesky First Amendment. This is what tyranny looks like.
Facebook, rightfully, argued against the administration’s claims, implying that Biden is criticizing them because he failed in reaching his promised goal of having 70 percent of Americans getting at least one COVID-19 vaccine jab by Independence Day. According to CBS, Biden’s efforts only saw 67 percent of the American people who got one dose while only 47 percent, less than half, have gotten two doses. That’s Biden’s failure not Facebook’s.
Leftist regimes never admit they failed at anything, they just blame others for their own failures. It’s not Facebook’s fault that Americans aren’t getting vaccinated.
While interviewing the woke Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on CNN’s “State of the Union,” like a good little administration flunky, Bash expanded the scope of who is to blame. It’s not just social media companies who are causing more deaths, but according to Bash, it’s conservative media, like Fox News, that are are killing Americans as well.
“President Biden did accuse social media platforms of killing people. Do you think conservative media, like Fox News, are doing the same? Are they killing people, too, with rhetoric like you just heard [from Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham]?” Bash asked.
She said with a straight face that Biden did accuse social media platforms of killing people as if Biden’s message is factual.
This is as dopey as saying not using someone’s personal pronouns is akin to assault. CNN has spread more misinformation than any other. Russian collusion, the pee pee tape, Trump teargassed people for a photo op, Trump lied 40,000 times, thre is no border crisis, a virus with a 99% survival rate is dangerous, and a million others. Who the hell are CNN pundits disguised as anchors to blame rival news outlets for people dying from COVID?
Murphy didn’t directly address Bash’s question, but said that people are put “at risk” if science is not followed and accurate information is not shared.
“I think all of us, including the media, including individuals, health professionals, have a responsibility to share the truth about health, as science dictates, as science informs us. And unless we do that, unless we are honest about the consequences of our communication with people, unless we are rigorous about ensuring that what we communicate is actually sourced from science, and not from an opinion, on critical issues like the vaccine, then we are going to ultimately put people at risk.”
But the problem is like everything else it comes in contact with; the Left has corrupted science, and that is a major reason why people aren’t listening to this administration. I mean, these goofy jacobins believe science says if a man puts on a dress and identifies as a woman he is now a woman. POOF! SCIENCE!
It’s like whenever leftist tyrants realize the people aren’t listening to them they just ratchet up the wild hyperbole; in this case claiming information is killing people. No, killing people kills people. Providing information, even misinformation, doesn’t kill people and Bash should be ashamed of herself for saying it does, but apparently she lost the ability to be ashamed a long time ago.
Murphy added that he worries “all of this misinformation that’s floating around is having a real cost that can be measured in lives lost.” No, it really isn’t.
“There are people all across our country, and I hear from folks all the time, who are struggling to make decisions about their health after this very difficult year we have been through. People deserve to have access to accurate information. They deserve to hear that from their leaders. They deserve to hear that from the media. They deserve to see that on platforms online,” Murphy said.
“They need that information to be able to make decisions to protect themselves and their families,” he added. “That’s the least we can do for them.”
“My worry is that all this misinformation that’s floating around is having a real cost that can be measured in lives lost and that is just tragic,” says US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on the spread of vaccine disinformation on social media and by conservative media. #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/hBTk3NDs9s

The American people are sane and rational folks who can read or hear information and make their own best determinations as to what is and is not good for them. This explains CNN’s spiraling ratings.
