    We are going to take a pretty good lick and then hopefully it'll wimper off after the surge. Looks like it will be ugly though. South Korea did a great job but they are going to be susceptible to repeat outbreaks because its still running so rampant everywhere else and they haven't built up much immunity in their country.

    I think they'll do fine, they're probably testing on arrival to the country.

    They might. They will have to be vigilant for a long time though. A lot easier for them to do than us I suppose.

    Except it won't do anything to help natural selection b/c they largely aren't going to die. It may punish their parents for raising idiots.

It's all perspective and everyone having a voice has confused people. Many blame the media. I personally think social media is more to blame.
    It's not a problem to lean. The problem is being untrustworthy. There are plenty of individual journalists that I'm sure are trustworthy regardless of their political leanings. But they don't get blasted all over the TV if they are in broadcast, and to the extent they are in newspapers or online, they are just mixed in with all the ass hats and people pay more attention to the publisher than the byline, so they don't really get identified as trustworthy.

    I just listened to The President's presser live. He is literally doing the same thing. This attitude you are talking about, It comes from the top.

    If we are going to get together as a country it would be nice if the guy in charge would hold off poking the fire.

    Trump could cure this thing himself and you?d be pissed he didn?t do it sooner. Just shut the hell up with all your political crap already. I come to this bird for anything but that.

    Mods, the title says to keep politics out of it. Can we enforce that? Ridiculous that I come here to read about the latest developments, and I get to read a shit throwing contest.

    This is of course slanted to a certain viewpoint, but does raise some questions to consider as to impacts

    I won't argue with that. News stations no longer hold reporters accountable when they become obviously biased. I do think it's a spot problem and not necessarily "network encouraged" as much as some think. However, it has the same effect if it becomes too prevalent. I notice it most consistently on two stations, which I no longer watch.

    There's a lot of percentages they're not sharing right now, which I don't appreciate.

There is zero excuse not to know what's going on. And that means you willfully ignored this. Which is embarrassing. And I dont really care what their opinion of me is. They are not the kind of people I want to like me.

    Ive tried to be nicer here, because I think this board is a more intelligent and reasonable bunch. That other board is full of blathering idiots.
    I don't think anyone knows your identity, so why would you care? You can be as sensationalistic as you want to be, when you are an anonymous message board warrior.

    I'm less bothered by the broadcast "news". THat's essentially a market problem; they are all trash because people want entertainment more than news.

    The print I am bothered by. The New York Times and Washington Post haven't abandoned their standards because that's what it took them to gain marketshare (I don't think; certainly could be wrong). Certainly there has been a sea change in the industry and maybe that was an excuse some of the people used for it, particularly not keeping editorial content separate from news content, but I don't t hink people were demanding entertainment from their newspapers int eh same way they were demanding it from broadcast media (or at least not in a way that required them to trash the news side).
