    There’s little doubt that many in the establishment media are trying to turn the coronavirus pandemic into their own windfall against President Donald Trump, and it’s becoming apparent some have resorted to using fake news to do it.

    Case in point: a CBS News broadcast Wednesday about the shortfall of ventilators in the state of New York.

    Among the cacophony of errors and lies of omission is one crowning jewel of potential prevarication: Footage of coronavirus patients used in the story to whip up hysteria about the situation in New York is actually from Italy.

    Okay? You think they are allowing film crews to see ventilated patients in NYC right now? I’m not so sure.

    Just another post to sew discord and divide. New York has enough to deal with right now. You are still not helping. Still bringing nothing but negativity.

    Now that's funny. It actually happened that CBS used a picture from Italy. That's called lying unless you identify the picture as from Italy.

    Also, the media freaked out over the My Pillow owner making 50,000 face masks a day and Jim Acosta tried to demagogue Trump again but Trump just told him that people should remain calm.

    It all happened on Monday. Not only did CBS lie, but also Acosta launched an attack, and the media freaked out over My Pillow because the guy is a Christian. Read the article from American Thinker, which was also attacked last week by the NYT even though they have been around 17 years (I think that is what they said). The liberals are going nuts with personal attacks and lies and Monday was a lulu day for them. By the way, it is odd when a guy brings up a topic not on the topic and then accuses you of doing it.

    Saw the Acosta exchange live during the actual event. Saw the MyPillow guy live during the actual event.

    What does this have to do with the topic, which was about Andrew Cuomo, NYC, and ventilators?

    I told you that these are the three attacks that the press made on Monday.

    Yes, you took the OP subject off topic by the 5th post in the thread.

    The press is mean and on attack and not coming together. CBS violated the rules of Journalism 101. CNN launched a personal attack on the President for not the first time with Acosta, who is their best reporter I guess. CNN could just ask a question without the personal attacks. In the My Pillow case (pun intended), the media thought that Mike Lindell should not talking about families reading the Scripture together in a blatant attack on the Bill of Rights:

    "My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell says God put Trump in the White House and tells people to read the Bible while standing behind a presidential seal on government property in a clear violation of the separation of church and state."

    As the original post said in the opening statement:

    "There’s little doubt that many in the establishment media are trying to turn the coronavirus pandemic into their own windfall against President Donald Trump, and it’s becoming apparent some have resorted to using fake news to do it."

    I thought that the author of the American Thinker post did a good job of exposing what the media did on Monday that to me myself is outside the parameters of what it means to be an American. You yourself can draw your own conclusions. As I told you before, I was not the one who was off topic in the thread that you found inspiration in and the other poster admitted it in case you did not double check the record. I also agree with the author of the American Thinker post that all three of these stories are related in that they show the pouncing on tiny little points, all of them wrong, during a time of domestic crisis in a pandemic not seen for a hundred years and involving a foreign enemy. So CBS is aligned with other evildoers as it is hard to believe that they did not know that they were posting a false picture and it is impossible to think that they should not have just said that they were showing the picture from Sky News from Italy because they did not have anything else. Then it would not have been a problem. But CBS lied. CNN attacked. And many cut away so as to not show American businessman and patriot Mike Lindell and others like Sarah Reese Jones made a false accusation that it was in violation of the First Amendment for Lindell to say read your Bible.

    This is what happened on Monday.

    Here is the CBS picture without the Sky name and without proper identification:

    As you can see by comparing it from the Sky picture posted above, CBS lied.

    Yep CBS made a mistake and admitted it. Did that mistake change the substance of the story they were telling? Absolutely not. They apologized and corrected that error right away. That is what responsible journalism does when they realize they make a mistake.

    And then you have the thread title calling this misinformation and the article downplaying the problems in NY as if the CBS story were the only evidence that NY hospitals are getting overrun with Covid19.

    It is clear who has made an honest mistake here and who is actively trying to misinform.

    Just like the gov’s awful math, I’m not buying the editing error excuse either, not without seeing the footage that should have been there. A far more likely scenario is that there wasn’t one showing anything as dire as they wanted.

    They stockpiled 10,000 ventilators and screamed for more. If you don’t need the 400 ventilators, gov, then shut up and send them back pronto, as there are areas hurting for equipment and supplies that you are obviously just sitting on.

    Honestly, If I was Trump I would send the lion share of resources to red states.

    Yes, they tried to accuse him of just that, because he said he wasn’t interested in talking to those who are unappreciative of the efforts the administration is making. But of course he just meant they would have to talk to someone lower down the chain of command, for example, the VP.

    Personally, I would have offered to let them talk with my dog. I think he may be a Democrat. :Wink

    It was not an honest mistake. It was an outright lie. CBS erased the Sky logo. Jim Acosta lied. They lied when they said that Lindell's remarks were unconstitutional. That is all the media is doing in an emergency--lying.
