Seriously? Let's make everything political at all times. Then complain about the partisan divide all the time. You should have enough awareness to realize how bad the timing of garbage like this is right now.

Why? He isn't the one that is spreading misinformation, FOX is.

My favorite part of the article

The often-dismissive messaging from Fox News hosts was particularly notable, given that, like other cable news channels, the viewers who make up the network's audience skew older and are, thus, the most vulnerable to the disease.

welcome to the media, pretty much all the main news providers will play up or play down or even not acknowledge certain stories at all if it goes against their own political biases, this isn't a left or right issue, but a media issue as a whole

I'm not going to pay attention to CNN telling me FOX misled viewers, anymore than I'd pay attention to FOX telling me CNN misled viewers.
As soon as I saw it was CNN I clicked away and claimed a few minutes of my life back.
Did you two even bother checking the article out?

Like, genuinely. This isn't some "oh they had a questionable expert on", no this is the "the dems are making up covid to impeach trump again" bullshit.

You answered your question by quoting me.

The only people complaining about the partisan divide are fence-riding political-nothings (not to dismiss anyone entirely, only their worthless political whining.)

Well... Fox will be fox. You've got to live inside an americana bubble to believe anything they say, because they randomly interchange news with 'news hosts', which is their way of saying 'these are our people giving political opinions on news topics'. A strong bubble, I might add, because it takes some double thinking to ignore the virus being active worldwide (and ignored by Trump) and now believing that it came from nothing into a tool to hurt poor defenseless Republicans.

Well... That gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'the audience is dropping' :unsure: /cynisism

So what you're saying is that not being an extremist and being able to see nuance in controversy is a bad thing. The world isn't black and white and there are more than two stances on every issue. The two party system has already done more harm to this country than covid-19 ever will. Both parties are actually pretty much the same anyway. All they disagree on is sexuality, guns, and abortions. Even then , nothing ever changes with those no matter who holds the power anyway. If you're talking about Libertarians or even anarchists, all we want is to be left alone. We don't believe in allowing people with extremist views to force their will on us every 4 years. Oh and to address the "do-nothing" accusation: every election cycle, there are always new regulations passed at the state and local level that actively block third parties from participating in the ballot. But nobody thinks of that before they start spewing the "LibeRtAriaNs CunT wOn ElecTiOn" bullshit.

COVID-19 was manufactured in china from the labs to stop the amid protesting. However due to tourism the virus was spread from person to person by contact by skin/coughing/sneezing. If you have noticed the protesting you don't hear about it anymore. Chinese nationalist and also a hardvard professor was arrested a while ago with links of bio engineering and also some tried to bring biohazard materials back to China.

TLDR: Virus is man-made just like Ebola and Aids and etc... these viruses are tools of population control which is why evrey 5-10 years you hear of a new virus.

Cavamen didn't have this shit and they were eating like raw animals yet all these diseases started popping up between 19th-21st century. There is no fucking way right after protests in china came about this virus originated in china and they tried to blame them eating bats.

You talk about seeing nuance, yet you espouse such false equivalency with all that lazy apathy. "Nothing ever changes" (maybe for you.) If your state is suppressing your vote, whining about it on a forum isn't gonna fix anything. Libertarians CUNT won election indeed, if they continue to do nothing but post "memes" and worship Ron Paul (who by the way, got on his hands and knees and CRAWLED to the UNITED NATIONS BEGGING to get his domain name back from a fan-website, look that up.)

Absolutely wrong, HIV is just one type of naturally occurring immunodeficiency viruses and is in no way man made. Unless we decided to also make BIV (cows), FIV(cats), a MIV(monkeys). They are god damn retroviruses. also cave people did not live in sufficient numbers of humans OR animals to make disease spread from humans to animals possible. Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever that falls in lines with other diseases such as Marburg, Lassa fever, and yellow fever which have been killing us WAY before we had any means to genetically modify viruses. Hell the human genome project only finished in 2003. the first case of Ebola was in 1976, 27 years earlier. Please read some scientific literature and use your god damn brain.

What I posted is a major conspiracy theory but you dont believe in population control ? Also check out the video I mean it's pretty convenient for COVID-19 to be a thing right after the protests in China

Lots of things are convenient, I bought a new dog leash and DRIVING HOME, I saw a dog walking around and managed to lure it into my car, got it back to owner (I guess I'm kind of a great guy.) That wasn't some bizarre setup, I don't think the deep-state arranged events to occur so perfectly. If things WERE arranged like that from the deep state, then you better pay attention to what I'm saying so you can decipher what I'm truly saying between-the-lines. fifty 4 omega dak lazarus.
error I cannot find the energy to correct this quotation

Young people make up the vast majority of Hong Kong protestors, this virus kills the elderly almost exclusively. So this theory has more holes in it than Swiss cheese.

Cavamen didn't have this shit and they were eating like raw animals yet all these diseases started popping up between 19th-21st century.
...Or cavemen just died from illness and disease all the time because they lacked the capacity to study or understand it even on the most basic level. Then they simply blamed everything on gods and demons as the ignorant tend to do.

On the topic at hand: it would be hilarious to watch if the irresponsible behavior of Fox could only cause its viewers to infect each other, but alas they're bound to infect any number of innocent and responsible individuals too.
