Not sure they ever admitted they were wrong...

 

The Murdochs are probably worried about their audience literally dying, given the average age of the FOX News viewer.

Could be, if the shift happened at the same time Trump made a complete 180 on the question, could be just estimating that now their audience want Fox News to say the same,

And the age of a certain Murdoch might be a factor.

Because reality finally hits them in the face. They are there to misinform and do the spinning. Reality forces them to change the script for Trump.

Sacramento County residents directed to ‘stay at home’ and wait out coronavirus

 

Quote

In yet another dramatic move to fight the spread of coronavirus, Sacramento County health officials on Tuesday afternoon called on all residents, not just the elderly, to stay at home effective immediately unless they have essential chores to do, such as grocery shopping, banking, restaurant food pickups, or health appointments.

 

The directive stops short of being a formal order, but represents a stricter stance than Gov. Gavin Newsom called for Monday night when he asked all restaurants and gyms to close, and for anyone 65 and older to hunker down at home for their safety.

 

“A directive is an order by another name, and it’s crucial that we all follow it,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said. “This is what we need to do to flatten this curve and prevent our health care system from being overwhelmed. It will still allow people to engage in all the essential functions of life, to go grocery shopping, to keep essential medical appointments, and to get outdoors and take a run or walk, as long as it’s at a safe distance from others.

 

“Life will change, but there’s no reason to panic,” he said.

 

Board of Supervisors chairman Phil Serna said the county is “at an inflection point,” and is coming to grips with an “unparalleled” public health crisis.

 

“I think we’re at that point where as the largest local government in the Sacramento Valley we have an obligation to do everything we can to protect the health of the public,” Serna said.

 

The county also is calling on employers and businesses to send all but essential employees home to work via telecommuting and teleconferencing.

 

“Although community mitigation measures can be disruptive, these recommendations are to protect the public’s health,” county officials said in an announcement

Those moves — dramatic and historic — will shut most commerce in Sacramento and create a largely stay-at-home society for at least the next few weeks as health officials monitor the spread of the virus and deal with its sickest patients.

 

The directive is similar to an order issued Monday in six Bay Area counties for residents to “shelter in place” at their homes and only go out if necessary for basic needs.

Call it whatever you want, but we have:

 

-An extremely aggressive, literally true-blue Capitalist President

-Entering a tough reelection year

-Overseeing a congress who does whatever he wants 

 

Trump will pull out every stop in the book to fix the economy fast.

 

Wouldn't shock me if he gives every American $10k and just sends an in-voice to China.

So Republicans are cutting paid sick leave out of the corona relief bill.

 

They're trying their hardest to give all the money to businesses.

Fox News are the lap dogs of Trump. If tomorrow he says the sky is green, they’ll start breathlessly talking about how true patriots know it’s green and the liberals want to gaslight you into thinking it’s blue.

You will not believe what has happened in France.

It is way worse than Trump.

In December (yes, december !) and in early January, our Health secretary was receiving tons of information from China, Wuhan and their scientists.

She knew the situation was very serious and informed Macron and his team in early January.

She was probably one of the people in the west with the best information about covid, she knew about strange cases of pneumonia happening as soon as in December in Wuhan.

Why she knew all this ?

Her husband opened with the help of  France a military laboratory in Wuhan to understand better all these contagious diseases in collaboration with the chinese.

She kept telling Macron a disaster was looming.

Macron forced her to lie to public saying until late January that France was safe from the virus.

She just gave an interview yesterday revealing all the details about how Macron and his team would not hear her.

And she was ordered to tell reassuring lies to french people.

 

This sounds like a cliché of every disater flick you ever see but it is sadly our reality.

 

Here's the picture of the grand opening of the laboratoy in Wuhan with french and chinese officials.

 

Centre-high-tech-virologie-de-Wuhan-vend

 

France had one of the most informed insider in the world being fed the most precise details of what was unfolding in Wuhan 

 

and yet, here we are.

:sadno:

 

This is one of the biggest scandal in french history.

They could be indicted for treason.

But they won't.

They should though.

I hope nobody is banking on the Kennedy proposal that would see Americans under $100K a year receive around $4,000 because I don't see any way the GOP would sign off on that.   It will probably be on the low end of $1000 and there will probably be all types of specifications on why certain folks do not qualify for it.  That's our government.

Um, Trump went way beyond simply sweeping corona virus under the rug and calling it a "hoax". He made cuts to the CDC, removed the pandemic response team, and rejected testing kits.

 

He's the reason we're going to be Italy 2.0.

CNN doesn’t spin? I rarely watch the news but I happened to have Cuomo’s show on last week. They are as bad as Fox News.

A small hope maybe, french professor Dider Raoult from Marseille runned trials on 24 patients using a known molecule used against paludism.

6 days in, 75% of people were rid of the disease.

The sample is too small but the results are judged encouraging by french health officials.

Another trial is gonna start soon to confirm these results and Sanofi ( one of the biggest french pharma corp) is ready to produce 300 000 doses of the substance if needed.

The medicine is called Plaquenil and the molecule is called

 hydroxychloroquine

This professor says the treatment was used heavily in China ...

 

Fingers crossed it can help us.

Boris Johnsons appointment of Rishi Sunak as UK Chancellor of the Exchequer must be one of the signings of the century.

 

Very impressive, future PM, I think.

Right...not even remotely close.

 

Fox News is a pure propaganda-network that lies openly and without end, you'd be better informed if you didn't get any news than if you watched them.

CNN is infotainment, always looking out for what brings the best ratings. They don't care who they are reporting about, and they love to show two sides regardless fo whether there actually are any. They also are sensationalist, because that is supposedly good for upping the ratings.

 

Comparing the two in such a way is asinine. Remove the over-the-topness of CNN and you still find some somewhat decent news, though they are quite far away from really good journalism. None of that can be said about Fox News. Their news division is barely acceptable, especially now that they lost Smith, though at least they don't really try to pretend that up is down like the rest of the network. The rest of their lineup is about as useful and subtle as North Korean propaganda.

So you're telling me unemployment could exceed 20% and many workers who live check to check have to sit at home during lock down and the Senate and Trump gives damn near a trillion to businesses instead of workers and I'm not allowed to call this shit The Purge?
