CNN is silent after South Dakota emergency room nurse Jodi Doering claimed on the liberal network that patients dying from coronavirus often don’t believe it despite her story appearing to have been a “massive exaggeration” if not worse. CNN’s interview went viral, with one clip piling up over 5.8 million views on Twitter. NewsBusters conducted a study, indicating that CNN spent 23 minutes and 38 seconds on Doering’s tale over a two-day period. “Of course, CNN has yet to air an acknowledgment or correction because, when there’s a narrative to push, CNN subscribes to the mantra of if it rings true, it is true,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck wrote.

When a person says, "I can't believe this is happening to me" doesn't mean denial, necessarily.

It's probably not true in most cases. They may be denying that they are dying from covid, because they know they're dying from something else. In any case, this is a stupid story from stupid CNN. CNN sucks!

These kinds of moral tales are all over Facebook and Twitter...and they're all bullshtuff. And if you call them out as such you are set upon by harpies and twits. Truth is not important whatever anymore, and that includes the Fact Checkers who lie using the literal truth..

Supporters of Donald Trump are mocking Alyssa Milano after the diehard Democratic activist and fierce critic of the president and his Republican backers offered to extend an ‘olive branch’ to the MAGA crowd. ‘I'd like to extend an olive branch to Trump supporters. I am ready to move #ForwardTogether,’ the star of the hit TV show Charmed tweeted to her 3.7 million followers on Tuesday. ‘There’s so much work to do to heal the nation. Let’s be a part of the solution and not add to the problems we face.’ Milano then invited Twitter followers to reply with the hashtag #ForwardTogether.
Families don't need help

Because the pandemic has given Democrats and liberals in the news media yet more reason to be self-important, we've been hearing nonstop in recent weeks that families should forego holiday gatherings this year. It should be done, we're told, so that we can more quickly return to normal (psych!) and "keep each other safe." Like almost everything else we've been lectured about, the advisement comes with that condescending tone perfected by Democrats and "experts" who believe in their hearts that people can't evaluate their own unique circumstances and make the best choices for themselves without the nagging. But, of course, they can.

States will begin receiving the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines in mid-December, but will make their own determinations on who will be first in line for a shot. An estimated 6.4 million doses of Pfizer’s vaccine will be distributed to states and territories by mid-December, assuming it receives Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization by that point, Operation Warp Speed officials told reporters Tuesday. State officials were notified Friday how many doses they should expect to receive in the initial distribution, and they will make their own decisions about who will be prioritized for the first doses.

A Pennsylvania state court issued an injunction Wednesday blocking any potential further certification of election results in the state, pending a hearing to be held Friday. The order from Judge Patricia McCullough comes in the case brought by Pennsylvania voters including Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., in which they allege that a state law allowing for no-excuse absentee voting violated the Pennsylvania constitution, which outlines specific cases where absentee voting is allowed. “[T]o the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election … for the office of President and Vice President of the United States of America,

Tesla boss Elon Musk surpassed Bill Gates to become the world’s second-richest person as the electric-car maker continued its staggering stock-market surge. A 6.5 percent jump in Tesla’s share price added about $7.2 billion to Musk’s fortune on Monday, putting his total net worth at $127.9 billion — slightly eclipsing Microsoft co-founder Gates’ $127.7 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. Musk, 49, took the No. 2 spot on the ranking of the world’s 500 richest people less than a week after climbing past Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg into third place.

CDC to shorten length of quarantine

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is finalizing plans to shorten the recommended length of quarantine for those exposed to Covid-19. The CDC currently recommends that individuals quarantine for 14 days after being exposed to people with the coronavirus. The two weeks is based on how long scientists believe it can take the virus to incubate in the body. "CDC is always reviewing its guidance and recommendations in the light of new understandings of the virus that causes Covid-19, and will announce such changes when appropriate," a spokesperson for the agency told NBC News on Tuesday. The updated approach will likely incorporate testing.

Don’t touch that like button! Twitter has unveiled a new policy to display warnings when users like a labelled tweet. Twitter has outlined a wide range of updates to undermine conservative opposition amid the recent 2020 presidential election. “Giving context on why a labeled Tweet is misleading under our election, COVID-19, and synthetic and manipulated media rules is vital,” Twitter declared on Monday as it unveiled yet another policy change. The official Twitter account explained that new “prompts” in recent months “helped decrease Quote Tweets of misleading information by 29%.” Now the platform is “expanding them to show when you tap to like a labeled Tweet.”

YouTube has penalized the right-wing One America News Network for promoting a bogus cure for COVID-19. On Tuesday, YouTube said it removed a video posted by OANN, a relentlessly pro-Trump outfit owned by Herring Networks, because it violated the site’s policy prohibiting coronavirus misinformation. Because OANN has received a “strike,” it is temporarily prevented from uploading new videos or live-streaming for one week. YouTube also has demonetized OANN’s channel, meaning it is no longer eligible to participate in the site’s advertising revenue-sharing program.

Readers, remember when the legacy media broadcast a story about a major study showing President Trump’s summer rallies acted as potential “COVID superspreader events,” and I pointed out that, like with climate change, models (essentially, algorithmic projections) were used to come up with those “statistics”? Well, in another piece from back in October, Stacey Lennox from our sister site PJ Media brings the receipts on the real reason why the number of coronavirus cases appear to be “spiking,” and it’s become even more relevant this week, as the legacy media’s reports increase to a hysterical pitch leading up to Thanksgiving.

President Donald Trump really wants to be president and continue to serve. But he also knows that the battle underway is contentious. So it says a lot about him what he just did. Democrats and anti-Trump people have been threatening the GSA head Emily Murphy for the past two weeks, demanding that she authorize the transition to Joe Biden, claiming that he is the president-elect despite the ongoing legal challenges in the case and that there have been no official determination yet by the Electoral College. Murphy just released a letter saying that she was going to go ahead with authorizing transition monies and resources for Biden despite the fact

More than two weeks after clinching electoral victory, President-elect Joe Biden can finally start his formal transition to the White House. The General Services Administration formally recognized Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election Monday, allowing his team to get working on the logistics of the transition, with President Donald Trump announcing the move in a tweet. The president also said he was not conceding. By law, the president-elect cannot access federal transition funds or contact federal agencies to plan staffing until the GSA recognizes an electoral winner.

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis declared in an article in Foreign Affairs on Monday that the “America First” foreign policy had damaged national security, and called on Joe Biden to “eliminate ‘America first'” from U.S. strategy. Mattis resigned in December 2018, citing policy disagreements with the president, who had just ordered a troop drawdown in Syria. In his resignation letter, Mattis said that the U.S. needed to do more to show “respect” to American allies.(Snip) In his new article, however, Mattis says the opposite, calling for the “end of America First”: The United States today is undermining the foundations of an international order

In what appeared to be an effort to stop the hemorrhaging of viewers after his attacks against Sidney Powell, Tucker Carlson reverted back to being the commentator on Fox News's highest-rated program on Monday. Or did he? After re-watching the clip of Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” twice, it appears to this humble writer that Carlson’s interview with Dr. Robert Epstein was an attempt to change the topic from fraudulent voting machines to Big Tech, specifically Google, as the difference of shifting six million votes to Joe Biden.

Right-wing Twitter users were fooled by an obvious prank on Tuesday after an admitted troll claimed that “antifa” was preparing to descend on conservative areas of the country. The prank, carried out by political activist and performance artist Adam Rahuba, involved a tweet in which President Donald Trump was ordered to concede the 2020 election.“If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas,” Rahuba tweeted at Trump. “Your supporters will not be able to go to work or the grocery store to feed their families. We are armed & will retaliate to attempts at vehicular manslaughter.”

What was Joe Biden thinking for his choice of climate-change ambassador extraordinaire? John Kerry is one of the biggest gasbags in American politics, singlehandedly responsible for massive amounts of terrible emissions. People have been laughing at him since Yale, when Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau was zinging his pretentious, vacuous self-promotion. We look forward to the anti-carbon lectures from a guy who travels the globe on private jets and luxury yachts. Set aside his deer-in-the-headlights loss as Democrats’ presidential nominee in 2004.

"Do you support possibly investigating Donald Trump, his administration, after he leaves office on January 20th? President-Elect Joe Biden’s chief of staff has said over the weekend the administration would basically allow, and I’m reading here, the attorney general to make a determination. But we know privately, Joe Biden said he kind of wants to move on from this," host Yasmin Vossoughian said.
