White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany let loose on CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during Thursday’s press briefing. Acosta, after asking more than once why it took President Donald Trump 13 hours to tweet about the fact that the United States surpassed 100,000 deaths due to the coronavirus pandemic, questioned whether or not Twitter’s move to fact-check the president on another issue was warranted.

Acosta: News outlets make mistakes from time to time. We own up to those mistakes. We correct those mistakes Fact Check: True, News outlets make mistakes. False, it is far more than “from time to time”. False: the media rarely owns up to its mistakes, often doubles down, and in the rare instance they issue a correction it is buried in double speak sorry, not sorry wording in the back page of newspaper and not tweeted out widely. False, their mistakes are never corrected because see above. Overall fact check: nearly completely false.

Number 2 - I really wish we as a country could use this moment in time to compare the world's reaction to the virus deaths to the 40 to 50 million abortions each year. It is now under a million per year in the US but that is still appalling compared to the virus and the press just doesn't care. In fact many celebrate those deaths.

Why call on that creep Acousta at all? Is there some Press Pool rule that says CNN must be called upon? Seems to me he should be tossed out of the WH Press Pool.

I don’t watch television at all so, until one occurrence recently, I had only read about Acosta and his idiocy. My soon to be son in law is very conservative but likes to occasionally watch CNN just to see what they are lying about. While in the living room with him I saw part of one of the WH CV19 press conferences and listened to what PDT had to say. After it was over Acosta went outside to do his schtick and blatantly lied about everything that PDT said. I shouldn’t have been, but I was shocked. Does he really think that we didn’t just hear what we heard from PDT and that we believe that Acosta is the one telling the truth? How clear of an example of bias and insanity does anyone need to completely ignore him?

#2 and #8 - what do ya think Acosta would say if POTUS announced the number of abortion deaths each time they passed some figure of merit? Wish he would just to see the media reaction.

Most people are more likely to wind up six feet under because of almost anything else under the sun other than COVID-19. The CDC just came out with a report that should be earth-shattering to the narrative of the political class, yet it will go into the thick pile of vital data and information about the virus that is not getting out to the public. For the first time, the CDC has attempted to offer a real estimate of the overall death rate for COVID-19, and under its most likely scenario, the number is 0.26%.

I wrote about Michael Pack’s documentary on Justice Thomas in “Clarence Thomas speaks.” The title of the film is Created Equal. We ran to one of our local suburban multiplexes to see it upon its release this past winter, in the good old days when such activities were permitted.

President John F. Kennedy famously observed during a gathering of Nobel Prize winners: “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House — with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.” And so it is again with President Trump’s daily assemblies at the White House featuring some of the world’s leading public health experts, epidemiologists, business leaders and economists. Clearly, Mr. Trump listens carefully to his panels of experts. And — clearly — these experts often clash.

Sickness due to the coronavirus is real. Death — at least some — due to the coronavirus is real. But how much is real versus how much is a best guess? Unfortunately, we don’t know. Even more unfortunately, we can’t even ask without facing a barrage of criticism from a variety of camps. History may very well show that the biggest casualty of the coronavirus outbreak may not be the body count, but rather the ability of a population to think critically, to analyze rationally, to arrive at conclusions based on fact and logic, not wildly fearful emotions.

The Washington Post recently touted "an alarming new scientific model" that warns that treating COVID-19 like a somewhat more severe strain of flu won't cut it. The model predicts over a million U.S fatalities unless we shut down all non-essential mingling until a vaccine is developed, "which could take 12 to 18 months at best." Pretty bleak stuff. In fact, that's about the bleakest take on COVID-19 you'll find. Let's run with it. Let's momentarily not raise a fuss about having no reason to trust the model's underlying algorithm or whatever unknown assumptions about the virus generated its scary predictions.

A federal appeals court has rejected a lawsuit from Congressional Democrats who accused President Donald Trump of violating the Constitution by receiving profits from foreign governments' spending at his luxury Washington hotel and other businesses. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision did not address the legality of Trump's business dealings, but held that the more than 200 Democratic senators and House members who banded together in 2017 to bring the suit against the president lacked legal standing to do so.

CNN’s so-called media reporter Brian Stelter hid ABC’s Jeffrey Epstein scandal from CNN viewers. There’s just no question that the Project Vertitas video of Amy Robach laying out how she had nailed down the Jeffrey Epstein story all the way back in 2015, only to have ABC News “quash” it, is one of the biggest media stories of the last 20 years. Just like NBC News covering up for Harvey Weinstein, here you have ABC News covering up for a rapist and sex-trafficker, and almost certainly doing so as a means to protect Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential campaign.

Democratic and Republican officials on Sunday took aim at groups like Antifa and Boogaloo as well as demonstrators from out of town as responsible for violent episodes at protests in major cities across the country. President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.
