White House Responds To Seattle NPR’s
Decision To Stop Airing Coronavirus Press

Original Article

Posted By: Ron_lfp, 3/26/2020 7:30:51 PM

The White House criticized Wednesday the Seattle-area NPR station’s recent decision to stop airing the coronavirus task force press briefings. “It’s not surprising, but also a failure of their duty to the American people, that some media outlets would choose to block their audiences from receiving accurate, up-to-date information on President Trump’s whole-of-government approach to slowing the spread of COVID-19,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told Daily Caller. (snip) KUOW, the NPR station broadcasting across Washington’s Puget Sound, announced Tuesday night that they “will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information that cannot be fact checked in real time.”


KUOW takes your tax dollars and delivers politics instead of news.

The whole idea of NPR is to get news of what is happening in the country to those who don't have another source. NPR is obsolete because everyone has multiple choices, which means they need to lose there taxdollar support. Since they broadcast on public airwaves they also have a duty to let people have direct communication and new from our government leaders and for this reason should lose their license to do any broadcasting!

I suppose any entity is up for criticism any time they fail to cover a press conference with presidential involvement. But I have to say: I've stopped watching these COVID-19 "updates." I don't hear anything of value. We're in a pandemic, the virus is supposedly more contagious than the flu, if you're in a high-risk category, whether age and/or underlying "health issues," then self-quarantine and if you're not, um, self-quarantine - or you're in trouble - and wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, clean surfaces, enjoy your living room, we need to open and re-start the economy but we're not going to do it yet, maybe Easter, maybe not, maybe in months and months, the gov't. is going to issue checks and go deeper into debt........ I think us Americans need to take this country back. I'm no fan of NPR, and I voted for Trump - but these press conferences could in and of themselves drive a spike in suicides. Just sayin'.

Responding to #11 each day there is new information coming from the task force. Things are not static and there are important facts to report. I really doubt that you voted to Trump since you apparently don't have any appreciation for the transparency that he and the task force are offering. You and your friends want to criticize but you are being stopped from doing that because each criticism you offer is met with "we are already doing that" and the results of the efforts of this group are amazing. By the way if you watched you might know that things are changing minute by minute and it may not be as contagious as the flu, Dr Birx was addressing that very model issue today. If you were paying attention you would know that.

I realize many have posted here, but imho, I’m sure people will just switch channels to find the president’s press briefings. I did away with cable after Charles Krauthammer passed away. I was realizing all credible, logical and non-partisan voices were becoming extinct. I can find a lot of conservatives, including the press briefings on YouTube for free!

Michael Medved broadcasts out of Seattle. He's an excellent conservative voice who I enjoyed listening to when I lived in California. The West Coast has some great radio broadcasters, Dennis Prager, Michael Reagan, Hugh Hewitt to name a few. In fact, when I moved away from there, I missed not being able to listen to my favorite radio hosts. Of course that was in the early days of the internet being a competitive source of conservative radio. Now with live streaming, podcasts and I Heart Radio we can pick up many hosts and stations around the country. I gave up supporting cable news a couple of years ago and now get all my news from the YouTube Channel on Roku.

To combat the novel coronavirus, Gov. Jay Inslee is ordering Washington residents to stay at home, except for crucial activities. Residents can still leave to buy groceries, seek medical care and go to work at essential businesses, Inslee said in a live televised address Monday evening, and they can still engage in outdoor activities that can be done 6 feet away from others, such as walking and biking. But the new order requires the closure of nonessential business places and, the governor said, “is enforceable by law,” though broad crackdowns by officers aren’t expected.

The property tax in Washington state is a key vehicle to fund government schools. The boss of government schools, and promoter of school curricula that treats kids as sexual beings from birth, Chris Reykdal, has suggested that districts dealing with coronoavirus not teach children, even online, because: “equity.” So, can you stop paying your property taxes since Reykdal has caused schools to stop teaching? Maybe Reykdal has a good reason for his official opinion. Chris Reykdal’s position is that, so long as one child doesn’t have a smart phone or computer and/or Internet access, no child will receive online education.

Faced with mounting coronavirus infections, California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday issued sweeping new restrictions in California, calling for home isolation of everyone in the state over age 65 and people with chronic disease, both high-risk populations. He also asked for closure of bars, wineries, night clubs and brew pubs, and called for restaurants to reduce their occupancy by half. He called that “deep social distancing” and a “pragmatic response to the moment.” The dramatic announcement, designed to keep people away from each other, stopped short of closing restaurants. Instead, the governor said they can also operate at reduced capacity and with curbside food service and at-home food deliveries.

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) certainly has a way of rewriting history. Pelosi appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today with Mitchell about a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that impeachment may have slowed down the federal response to the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s a good question because Democrats have prioritized their quest to get the president any way they can since he was elected and they have never counted the cost of that effort. While Trump responded immediately in January, Democrats were completely focused on their continuing narrative against Trump. The virus to them was just another avenue to try to attack Trump,
