I wonder if anyone refused to take this medication prescribed by their doctors due to fear from this story.

So being stupid has really nothing to do with Trump in this case (outside of Trump being stupid of course).

Should Trump stop mentioning the drug once he said it one time instead of constantly pushing it? Sure. Should he have kept its news under wraps until it was verified? Sure. He was trying to give a little bit of hope I guess.

Clorox is great to kill surface germs. Not so effective when ingested.

But you can't fix stupid, and that article clearly documents stupid.

I mean, we can use nuance without really defending Trump, no?

Obviously two things can be true at the same time.

1) Trump has ZERO business standing up there and name-checking a cocktail list of non-approved-for-COVID19 drugs and it needs to stop;
2) Holding him accountable for two morons using a household substance with no supervision and at no suggestion of any doctor is silly

well in the case of the lupus drug its probably because people were asking doctors for 1-3 months worth of the drug for their personal use in the case of quarantine.

these recommendations were coming down from doctors regarding birth control and other prescriptions as well.

doctors are not writing prescriptions for those or anti malarials just because trump name dropped them. as for the fish tank people? its like swallowing wart remover because trump mentions salicylic acid in a conversation about aspirin... but some darwin award motherfucker just remembers seeing that word on a label somewhere.

CNN isn't showing anymore task force briefings and their reasoning is good and obvious. The problem is they had no problem showing it when the outlook was really grim. Now that the outlook is better they are cutting it off and only showing highlights that they can narrate on the spot.

They also had no problem showing wall to wall coverage of every Trump rally in 2016...

So now Don lemon is on a rant about how he didn't want an ad about what Trump has done in the past. He wants to hear only about what Trump is doing to keep him and his people safe.

The problem with that is that all they talk about is what Trump did or didn't do in the past. All they do is question the past. Then when he reacts to their poking, they go off and say he had no business trying to convince people about the job he has done so far.

They are playing games.

RE: CNN : "Who gave him the idea that he is the king and has control over what states do"

Maybe you guys who blamed everything that happens in those states on his lack of universal leadership?

Its not that he doesn't have agency. Its that he is a certain way and will not let anyone "push him around". The media is running an experiment to find out if they can push him around and they get upset when he confirms that he is exactly how he always has been and is not going to let anyone get away with "hitting him". He feels like if he lets someone get away with one little thing, then it will be a sign of weakness and his power will be eroded away more and more. He holds a hard line and its not negotiable. Never has been. That line was drawn in the sand forever ago.

So if you know he always hits back but you hate when he hits back and think the entire exchange is "bad for the country" why would you keep hitting him?
If you really think him hitting back is bad for the country at a time "when people are dying", then why would you hit him at this time "when people are dying"? I'm not saying Trump's behavior is excusable. I'm just saying it is what it is.

The media's behavior is like someone who hits a wasp nest then complains about the agitated wasps trying to sting them but then goes back and does the same thing over and over and is still surprised they are getting stung 4 years later.

Did they really think they could just insinuate him of killing thousands of people repeatedly and not get a response? Did they really think they could cover the past and he would just look forward and not address the claims they are making about the past? Did they really think he would come out and say " yeah I messed up and tens of thousands of people are dead because of my failed response"?

If you're going to try to wind him up, don't act surprised when he is wound up.

Bc it's their fucking job and responsibility? You're blaming the media for Trump being a giant baby. If you can't handle intense public criticism you shouldn't run for office.

I wouldn't really agree with "gotcha" questions being part of their responsibility even though its part of their job. Those questions don't really serve any purpose, and don't inform anyone. The entire point of those questions is to "test" the composure of the person by "pushing them".

It gets it on public record so the person can't act like they never thought to answer, and gives the person a chance to either attempt to correct the narrative (Trump takes a very extreme version of this approach) or admit faults and explain corrective actions. A leader shouldn't have any problems determining their approach and dealing with tough questions.


If admitting mistakes and culpability = self damning, then hell yes, drawing that is absolutely a role of the media

Yes, it’s widely know that Trump lies all the time, is incoherent, contradicts himself and is a genuinely awful narcissistic psychopath.

I think it’s absolutely justified and necessary for the media to continue to show that.

At this point, I don't know why anyone takes NYT seriously anymore. Their bias is so incredibly transparent.

Quote :
"I want to focus particularly on the Julie Swetnick allegations. She was the one who was represented by Michael Avenatti and who suggested that Kavanaugh had been involved in frat house rapes, and then appeared to walk back elements of her allegations. The Times wrote that story the same day she made the allegation, noting that "none of Ms. Swetnick's claims could be independently corroborated. "Why was Kavanaugh treated differently?

Kavanaugh was already in a public forum in a large way. Kavanaugh's status as a Supreme Court justice was in question because of a very serious allegation. And when I say in a public way, I don't mean in the public way of Tara Reade's. If you ask the average person in America, they didn't know about the Tara Reade case. So I thought in that case, if The New York Times was going to introduce this to readers, we needed to introduce it with some reporting and perspective. Kavanaugh was in a very different situation. It was a live, ongoing story that had become the biggest political story in the country. It was just a different news judgment moment…."

Good summation, thanks for linking. And I had not seen this tweet:

Quote :
""No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting, nor did any former Biden staff members corroborate any details of Ms. Reade's allegation. The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses, and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.""
