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.


There is a reason human population took a long time to grow until recently. Humans were getting all kinds of viruses/bacterial infections just like any other mammals would. Only the strong survived to populate. A primitive human settlement could be wiped out. Its a lot harder to spread when cavemen are in little groups.
I suppose you think the black death was manufactured also?

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.
Lol, I just noticed after reading your response that CNN wrote that. I'm sure they won't at all be bias towards a rival cable network! :P

I dislike CNN, Fox, and all the cable news network as much as the next guy, but this is a pretty funny source for something like this.

So how did fox news mislead their viewers? I prefer to get an answer from a more reliable source than the fake news channel CNN.

also, by reading the replies from some of the liberals here, I feel that fox news viewers aren't the ones whom are misled.

Politic ads:
"This guy is bad, vote for me instead!"
"This guy did this, and it's awful, vote for me!"

The internet:
"You're the fake news!"
"No, you are!"

Two-party system at its best. Welcome to the Superbowl.

Y'know, I don't think that flies could be spreading this black death thing. Naw, it's just some overblown stuff. Just keep praddling about, nothing's wrong, what do you mean we should clean out the streets of rats, it must be coming from god. Only the sinners die from the disease.

At it's simplest? Well, I'll summarize the article for you.
  • Sean Hannity, a noted conspiracy theorist and FOX anchor, compared the death rate of COVID to that of the seasonal flu, something he knew was wrong since the night before he actually had an expert on that claimed it was 10 times as deadly.
  • Trish Regan called the entire thing "yet another attempt to impeach the president", while his on-screen headline read "CORONAVIRUS IMPEACHMENT SHAM".
  • Hannity called the entire response from the media "overblown, irresponsible, over-the-top rethoric" as well as calling it political.
  • Fox & Friends Weekend rather appalingly claimed that the Democrats secrelty would want to get infected with COVID so they could drag down Trump.
  • Martha MacCallum claimed on her show that the seasonal flu is just as deadly, something which again, has already been disproven.
  • Marc Siegel selectively picked South Korea's death rate, a country noted for it's quick response to the virus, to "prove" that it's far less deadly than it's being claimed.
All of these names work for FOX fwiw.

And for some irony:
  • FOX is actually taking serious actions to protect it's employees from COVID, spreading hand sanitizers, urging work from home and holding conversations with employees on how to tackle the situation.
  • FOX's main demographic is considered to be the most at risk by experts.
Finally, whilst his rethoric is incredibly fucking racist (insisting calling it "Chinese Coronavirus"), at least Tucker Carlson never donwplayed the effects of COVID and even repeatedly scolded his fellow conservatives for doing so.

Did I just save you a click to the big evuhl CNN? Can you now sleep at night without having visited a news site that you dismiss outright because you ideologically hate them. Because what I just literally did was summarize their article.
