We will not air someone who makes fantastical and fictional claims and boasts during the middle of a pandemic which might cause panic through false information instead of experts.

Also here's a Hollywood screenwriter. https://t.co/2i1e5Oge6c

I like his work on Twitter. His laconic approach translates well to his snark.

In NYT article on Trump imposing export controls to keep medical equipment from being sold overseas, they quote a CFR expert Jennifer Hillman who is critical of the move. They don't disclose that she has been advising the Biden campaign. https://t.co/KWC3L2p1NA pic.twitter.com/vHRV4Jjjjm

It's okay to quote her. But the fact she's advising Biden's campaign should be disclosed. And the NYT should probably have also sought out some heterodox economists to defend export bans -- over 2 dozen countries are doing them now.

Wiser heads ultimately prevailed. Lawyers at The New York Times have now forced multiple corrections in the defamatory article. Even with the revisions, false implications remain… but the corrections are a step in the right direction.

Drew Holden was good enough to put together a thread showing how absolutely disgusting the media has treated Tom Cotton and anyone who has questioned the origin of COVID-19. Anyone who dared think this virus could have come from a lab or a disease center …

Because you know, it was racist or something.

Check it out (yes, it’s long but worth your time):

As I’ve said before, when it comes to the so-called “fact checkers” in the media, I find the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler hit or miss – but mostly miss.

Over the last few weeks as the Trump administration has ramped up its efforts to combat the Wuhan coronavirus, Kessler has engaged in a series of missteps (to put it charitably) when it comes to analyzing their efforts. Before we get to the most recent instance, let’s take a look at two prior examples...

This one will take multiple posts, in order to keep them manageable.

Just watched a segment on @donlemon's @CNN show with @Emily_Baum of the @latimes. Some things happened. First, the story is that the Trump administration shut down a research program called PREDICT, which apparently "examines the intersection of animals and humans in nature."...

— Jason Beale (@jabeale) April 4, 2020


So far so good. Sounds like a good idea. They send researchers out into the field to take samples of viruses in animals and try to identify new viruses that we haven't yet seen. Okay great. As Emily is describing the program, the @CNN chyron says...

— Jason Beale (@jabeale) April 4, 2020


"TRUMP ADMIN SHUT DOWN EARLY-WARNING PANDEMIC PROGRAM JUST TWO MONTHS BEFORE CORONAVIRUS SPREAD IN CHINA"

Fair enough. Sounds like a legit gripe. Emily then explains, over the chyron, that the administration didn't "gut" a permanent program - that this program operated...

...on a grant cycle, and that "they finished up the program and the grant wasn't renewed." So that's different. But even if it's "finished up," one would think we should keep a program like that going, right?

But then it got wacky.

Don asked Emily why the researchers she spoke with said closing the program was "incredibly short-sighted"? Her response was enlightening.

— Jason Beale (@jabeale) April 4, 2020


...in the human host - you failed at preventing the very thing you're warning won't be prevented unless we give you another 200 million dollars to not prevent it.

Your program wasn't renewed because it was a now-demonstrable waste of money. It didn't work. Good decision.
