you think that members of the media should pretend that they're stenographers and just take dictation?

 

Members of the media are unelected d*ckheads and should give ELECTED politicians their say.

And how is identifying a falsehood denying a politician his say?

 

Because people elected a person to speak.

 

If "the media" wants to be arbiters of truth and lies then thats not being a 'reporter' is it? 

 

Media should give all sides their say in the matter, otherwise you further divide the country and <deleted> people off.

I was referring to the fact Immigration officials in most countries will tell Americans they are denied entry. However, if it boosts your self esteem to be the tough guy, go for it.

So what would you do if I expressed my opinions to your face - beat me up, or shoot me? I'm trying to remember who said violence was the last refuge of the incompetent.

 

Thats a bit rich after weeks of riots and assault, isn't it?

While Fauci rants on about the cases there is no mention of the substantial drop in mortality rates. 

 

Nor is there any mention of what one can do to build up their immune system. Diet. Exercise. Attitude. Just the same stuff we have been hearing for months now. 

Correct.  Got to keep the fear mongering up so that payday at the end of all the fear mongering pays off.  That vaccine will be a nice golden parachute.

Well today the USA is the last place on earth that I would travel to. I also hope that

Canada keeps the Americans from coming across the border until next year, as it

will take that long to see the numbers in the US go down.

  I think a lot of Americans are like their Heinz Pickles, and you can't tell a Heinz

Pickle nothing..  So many of them think that they are the superior country and 

will not listen to anyone else. Number One.  The surges in the USA are going

to just increase if they do not get a major attitude change. Good to hear that maybe

some bars will get closed. Close the beaches as the population seems to be to stupid

to social distance.  President Trump has not set a good example hardly once.

   Have all of you tried his bleach cure yet?  The blonde gal doing his talks seems so

blonde!  Good Luck USA as there will likely be a lot of you dead by this time next year

especially if you are over 60 and have young teens or young adults who do not care if

they get sick with covid as they will likely survive. Ask yourselves, when is the last time

the young generation gives a dang about old people, or will stay away from them if

the young one was partying or beach going, protesting, or other crowd activities without

masks gloves or such for precautions. I think the rest of 2020 will be a rough year on

lots of people.

Geezer

Fauci ranting? Really? Please share with us a video of him doing that.

 

At any rate there are several reasons why deaths are down.

 

The most important one is that thanks to strict rules, the states of the northeast that were contributing most to deaths have drastically reduced their number of cases. Previously the bulk of deaths came from them.

 

Second, health care workers have learned better how to treat the ill and there are a few medications out there now that have improved the odds of survival

 

Third,  now, young people make up a larger proportion of the infected

 

But 

 

There is a lag time between the development of symptoms and death. The average is about 3 weeks

 

Right now young people make up a much larger percentage of the infected. But as time goes by, it's likely that they will transmit infections to older people,

 

Collateral damage. ICU hospital beds are filling up in states such as Texas, Florida and Arizona. That means that not all people who are ill with other diseases, will get the care they need. So their mortality rate should rise. They may not be dead from a Covid infection, but is that an important distinction?

 

And authorities have noted that obesity is a major contributing factor to mortality.

I have no idea what you mean be people elected a person to speak. The elected a person to be president.

Well, to your way of thinking "reporter" apparently means "recorder". There are matters of opinion and matters of fact. For example, can you tell me how Trump's declaration that he inherited no ventilators from the Obama administration is a matter of opinion?

This was what Dr. Fauci said about drop in covid 19 mortality rates in case you missed it.

 

An important point to keep in mind is that it takes time before people infected with the coronavirus get sick enough to die. “Deaths always lag considerably behind cases,” Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, said at a congressional hearing last week. A month ago, there were fewer COVID-19 cases per day, so death rates now could be reflecting those numbers. Some experts expect death rates will rise over the next month to reflect the current surge in cases,

To be fair, and I forgot to list this, it may be that some have immunity to this virus due to previous encounters with other similar viruses. No one knows much about this yet, but it could be the case. Still, you hardly want to plan what to do during a pandemic based on a hope.

Jair Bolsonaro was forced to wear a mask, maybe Trump can be forced to wear a one.

 

trump wears an orange mask every day. Hair and makeup staff must spend at least an hour each day making him presentable. And he still looks like a racoon.

 

But a mask, oh the horror.

 

100,000 new cases per day sounds terrible. But then the U.S.A. is number 1.
