Here's How the Democratic Media Complex Previously Compared the Flu to the Coronavirus

No matter what President Donald Trump does or doesn't do in response to the Wuhan coronavirus, the mainstream media loves to complain. At the end of January when Trump placed a travel ban on all flights to and from China, the Democratic media complex labeled the move as “racist” and “xenophobic.”

Fast forward two months later and the very same people are complaining the president didn’t take the Wuhan coronavirus seriously. 

"In late February, President Trump began downplaying the coronavirus by likening the illness to the seasonal flu," MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said.

But looking back at their coverage since January, one thing is clear: the mainstream media has continually said the flu is much worse than the coronavirus.

Doctors and hosts on NBC, MSNBC, CNN and CBS downplayed the seriousness of the Wuhan coronavirus. In fact, they told Americans to be more concerned with contracting influenza than the coronavirus.  

"Half the people in America do not get a flu shot and the flu, right now, is far deadlier," CNN's Anderson Cooper said on March 4th. "So if you're freaked out at all about the coronavirus, should be more concerned about the flu."

The truth is this: China and the World Health Organization (WHO) lied about the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus. We were told in January that the virus is not transmitted through human-to-human contact. We now know that was a lie. Taiwan alerted WHO about the virus in December so other countries could be warned. And guess what happened? Everyone waved Taiwan off.

Instead of holding China and the WHO accountable for this pandemic, the Democratic media complex wants to blame the Trump administration. The Trump administration is doing the best they can with the limited, reliable information they have. They continually give the American people updates on what's being done, how personal protective equipment (PPE) is being made and shipped to various areas throughout the country, and how to "flatten the curve."
