I think the problem is this is how medical advice goes to the masses:

new study suggests eggs are bad

new study suggests egg whites are good

new study suggests egg whites are bad

new study suggests egg yokes are good

new study confirms egg whites are racist

new study suggests eggs are bad

new study suggests eggs are bad again

New study suggests eggs are good

new study suggests eggs are bad

trust us. Then you see the case of Diederick Staple the guy that brought you meat makes you selfish and trash makes people have racist thoughts. He fabricated data for over 50 peer-reviewed articles, many of which were published in leading journals, including Science.

Here is some good news:


AZ #Covid hospitalizations: down 35% from peak 18 days ago.

CA: down 8%, peak 10 days ago.

FL: down 14%, peak 10 days ago.

TX: down 15%, peak 8 days ago.


Sad news. When people were asked worldwide how many in their country had died of coronavirus, the response was 9%. They think 9% had died from it, about 225x the estimate. https://www.kekstcnc.com/media/2793/...ker_wave-4.pdf

"Promising" vs. "promised". Big difference.

Every "news" editor knows you can't run a headline of, "Breaking News: 0.04% of our population has succumbed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus." You'd get laughed out of town, and viewership and sponsors would drop like a rock; especially when compared to your media competitors, who lead with total number of deaths, or worse, total number of "confirmed" cases.

If it bleeds it leads. Sensationalist entertainment packaged as news had done a disservice to our country for decades.

We keep falling for it. Both sides, over and over again so who’s the smart one here?

I'm beginning to believe they make the President as controversial as possible, so you ignore what Congress is doing.

He doesn't need help in that regard. Personal responsibility, low national debt and foreign policy have been replaced by "nobody likes me". That's a quote.
