    MSM reporting of US COVID-19 mortality rate: An exercise in 'How to Lie with Statisti

    Could this be a further indication that we are being manipulated by the media? Now why would they try to do that?

    “Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    I think it's because the MSM is all headquartered in guess where? Downstate NY. They reflect and feed the local hysteria. I've often felt that it's not that they think NY is the most important, more like NY is the only thing that matters, it is the country. The rest of the country is just...well...the sticks.

    You see this is all their reporting from the weather to crime to everything else.

    The IRS, FBI,CIA,NSA should bring everything they have bear against anyone who took a dine from Soros and his friends. Just as soon as they purge them from their offices.

    Unfortunately when your wood frame house is infested with termites eradicating them isn't possible without burning it to the ground and starting over with bricks!
    I fear we may be at that point!

    For what exactly? I don't see any law broken at least as to what's referenced in the article. Kind of sounds like your proposing weaponizing those Federal agencies. I think we've had more than enough of that already. In fact if that continues it will be the end of us.

    I'm sure the families of those 100.000 PEOPLE are consoled by the low death per 100,000 rate.

    It is possible to love my country and my guns but despise Donald Trump.

    The media has hyped everything along with the left including Russia Collusion, an impeachment when there was no there, there, and now we see two new crisis, attempting to blow the virus out of proportion, and the newest of dividing us racially (always a favorite tactic).

    We all knew when the impeachment failed, we would see other attempts to get rid of Trump and take this country full blown communist . We didn't know exactly what those things would be, but they were sprung on us very quickly.

    Soros gets better at his game every day, we have to improve our skill set also.

    The individual families are surely not. But collectively (you guys like collectiveness, right?) America should be consoled by our low death rate.
