A fired-up John Oliver laid into right-wing media on Sunday, excoriating Rush Limbaugh and Fox News hosts for continuing to downplay the coronavirus pandemic--and blaming them for the recent string of protests against stay-at-home orders and social distancing measures. (Snip) It wasn't just Limbaugh who had Oliver incensed on Sunday. The host also criticized Fox News hosts for continuing to downplay the number of coronavirus deaths in America (a number that has now topped 41,000), citing numerous examples from the likes of Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters, and Tucker Carlson.

I had to look up the name to see who John Oliver was. As soon as I saw his face, I remembered him as one of the idiots in 2016 who said that Donald Trump would NEVER be President. Check out the video for a good laugh!

The numerator (number of deaths caused by CCP Flu) is being vastly padded. Anyone who dies and either tested positive for CCP Flu or is ASSUMED to be positive is listed as a CCP Flu-caused death. The actual cause of death is ignored. There are no autopsies, no inquests, nothing, just assumptions. There are financial and political benefits for inflating the numerator as much as possible. The denominator (number of people who have or have recovered from CCP Flu) is being vastly understated. This is due to a lack of testing and a complete disinterest in random sampling. A random sampling of a California county showed that far more people were infected than was believed. The Left keeps hollering "Trust the science." OK, let's do some real science, not the junk science being peddled by folks who value power more than the public welfare.

I listened to Rush today. Wonderful. Said the shutdown was never necessary. So right. That's why Rush is number 1. And Trump is the only person that would have ever reversed socialism, and the the only person that could have. All this is a vivid reminder of how close we were to losing our freedoms and this country. It's great that there are so many people that are never going to let that happen.

Just some mouthy Brit who pretends to be a comedian, and is an extreme leftist.

Oliver might be right about the number 19 being the year the virus was named, but not that it might be number 19, or could be 1,000, since as Rush says, it is merely a more virulent version of the common cold virus. 1,000 is about how many times smarter Rush is than John Oliver. Also, he can't deny that some hospitals are counting deaths from just about any cause as coronavirus deaths. Reimbursement is better.

We've got all the important stuff right and you avoided a real challenge on any of those---HCQ for starters. It is like the flu, it is in the cold family (for which there is still no vaccine). I notice Oliver didn't take on Trump, who's instincts have proven correct once again.

It's not about the 41 or 42 thousand that have died, it's the percentage of those that have the illness, compared to the total number of people in this country, and the extended period of time this country has been shutdown. The shutdown and the percentage of those with the illness just don't add up. The shutdown was based on models that had social distancing factored in, and they were still so far off, they not only weren't in the ballpark, the models couldn't find the ballpark even if you let them through the gate. Now after over a month of doing what the doctors told us to do, people are fed up. Remember, these same doctors told us at the start, the shutdown would only last two weeks. However, the shutdown just went on and on, and the restrictions put on people kept increasing. People aren't stupid. They see and hear these news conferences and they know what's what. After crying wolf for over a month, people have decided they are willing to take the risk even with some of the precautions still in place.

WASHINGTON – Americans have come to expect that they will know who their next president is on election night, but that’s likely to change this fall. In fact, because of a huge increase in mail-in voting in states that are not used to it, the presidential election could take a week or more to be decided. Public officials and advocates are just now beginning to grapple with how to prepare themselves, and the country, for this unprecedented situation. “It’s a culture shift that’s going to be required,” said Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights,

That created another frenzied news cycle about how Trump had blood on his hands.

Never, that is, Fauci suggested, until a vaccine is developed. And by logical extension, that’s to say--never, until a vaccine is developed that must then be included on the required list of shots for all children to attend school.

Illinois Democrats are demanding $41 billion from the federal government for coronavirus relief, including $10 billion for Illinois's cash-strapped and underfunded public pension plan.

Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has said that the country will need to initially conduct up to 3 million tests per week to reopen.
