It's not censorship to refuse to report on what the President said because he actually said it anyway
glad you agree. Censorship is preventing speech, anybody can turn to one of the other channels and see him talk, nobody is obligated to cover him.
It's not enough to bash in heads, you've got to bash in minds soon I discovered that this rock thing was true Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet All of a sudden i found myself in love with the world And so there was only one thing I could do Was ding a ding dang my dang along ling long - Jesus Built my Hotrod Ministry Live every week like it's Shark Week! - Tracey Jordan Just a monkey in a long line of kings. - Matthew Good If "elitist" just means "not the dumbest motherfucker in the room", I'll be an elitist! - Get Your War On *not an actual doctor
quote:Implying he called the virus a hoax, but what he called a hoax was the media's hysteria about the virus.
And the “hysteria” turned out to be far more accurate than his claims.

It was a high level decision that happened on his watch, so yes he was responsible. That’s what leadership means. If you think Trump’s weaselling on the issue is “good leadership” then that’s your problem. It’s a very bad example.
That is definitely a shame, an appalling shame that they censor the President himself.
I think most would agree that it's a shame that the president spreads so much false and inaccurate information about the greatest threat to our nation and the world since World War II.
Typical leftist media that has to make everything political instead of reporting the news.
While your hero does lie and misrepresent incessantly, he had an excellent performance yesterday. Here's a video of the briefing:
I only watched Trump's opening remarks. He scaled back his comments about getting the country back to work early to say that segments of the country could return to work earlier than others, but this is still at odds with the advice of almost all health professionals.
He heaped praise upon himself: "It's hard not to be happy with the job we're doing, I can tell you."
He took shots at the European Union for not purchasing American medical equipment and for not paying enough into NATO. I couldn't check the accuracy of this statement because Google Search results are dominated by recent coronavirus news.
He said that suicides would go up by more in a recession or depression than would be caused by the virus. That is, of course, false. While suicides do rise during economic downturns, and it is more than compensated for by declines in heart related and motor vehicle deaths.
Trump said that FEMA is shipping 9.4 million masks as if it were a large number, not realizing that with five million medical related workers it's less than a one day supply, not even worth mentioning.
But overall I thought Trump's performance was outstanding as measured against expectations. Only one thing he said was overtly false, he blew up at a reporter only once, we've grown inured to his habit of mixing presidential duties with campaigning, and unexpectedly Dr. Fauci was on the podium again, a good sign, but occurring only after Fauci was quoted being very deferential in the press, such as saying he and Trump were agreement, it was just that their goals were different, Trump's being aspirational and his being health.
Such cleverness on the Left. It's not censorship to refuse to report on what the President said because he actually said it anyway. Amazing.
You cry wolf constantly. There's no censorship. They're just not going to broadcast future briefings because the inaccurate and misleading information is impossible to fact check in real time.
We need to get the truth about the coronavirus out to everyone to correct the current dichotomy of opinion where the left takes the pandemic far more seriously than the right. Trump is a prime contributor to misinforming those on the right who for some unfathomable reason still trust him.
You're talking about this, and none of it is out of context:
Implying he called the virus a hoax,...
Everyone knows he called the Democrats' characterizing the Trump administration response as insufficient was a hoax.
...but what he called a hoax was the media's hysteria about the virus.
No, he said it was the Democrat's new hoax, comparing it to the impeachment, which he also calls a hoax. And "hysteria" is your word. The statements of Democrats and the media that the Trump administration was playing down the virus threat was not a hoax. It was true and not hysteria at all.
Saying he refused to take responsibility as if he said it about the virus itself when he was talking about a particular decision to eliminate some office or other which wasn't his responsibility.
Everyone knows he was refusing to take responsibility for the lag in testing, and no one would think it makes any sense to blame any particular person, including the president, for the virus, though Trump does seem to believe it makes sense to blame China. Pompeo's recent insistence that the virus be referred to as the Wuhan Virus prevented the signing of a joint communique with European allies - great job.
Do you people ever care about the truth?
The irony is strong in this one. Once again you have made it through an entire post without saying anything true. Or even quoting anything. Your word is worth nothing.
It was the WuHan virus to everybody until Trump used it, then it was racism.
Democrats, media, all the same thing really.
The video is edited to make it impossible to get exactly what he is saying so they can claim he was downplaying the virus itself. No he was objecting to the usual poligical attacks on him.
And why is everybody suddenly upset about calling it the Wuhan or Chine virus when that is what EVERYBODY was calling it when it was first identified. Horrific hypocrisy here. It came from China, other pandemics have also been called by their source.
It was China's attempt to cover it up that allowewd it to spread so far so fast and some are saying they should be made to pay for it, a trillion or so to the WHO. Of course they won't but it should be made clear that it is their responsibility and that they owe it. Either their creepy "wet markets" were its source or their creepy bio warfare lab was its source, but it s source was China and its spread was due to their politically motivated negligence.'s t
He has NOT acknowledged that it was Bill Clinton under the urging from Hilary that got the stockpile created in the first place and that his staff was briefed on both the possibility of a pandemic as well as the steps needed to address the pandemic by the outgoing Obama Administration staff or that in 2019 Johns Hopkins held Event 201 which was a three day symposium on how to address a pandemic and the economic challenges and disruption that would result.
Trumps behavior is at best reprehensible and verging on criminal neglect.
AbE: and it is a fact that studies on the effect of pandemics has been regularly completed and widely promoted. In 2001 it was a study based on the release of smallpox by a terrorist group.
Only a total **** or liar could pretend that what happened was unexpected or unpredictable.
Re: It was the WuHan virus to everybody until Trump used it, then it was racism.
China has the virus under control, its the US that's the hotspot now.
If we are going by origin we have to correct our history books, and rename the Spanish flue that killed millions to the American flue. Spain was only the country that reported it while others hushed it up, but the virus originated in the US.
Christianity, One woman's lie about an affair that got seriously out of hand
What are the Christians gonna do to me ..... Forgive me, good luck with that.
Trumps behavior is at best reprehensible and verging on criminal neglect.
Trump responded more rapidly and effectively than any other President to any similar situation. Obama didn't declare a national emergency on the swine flu for six months and then there were no travel bans or any other provisions that I remember..
But the Trump hatred will continue to write fake history anyway.
