If there are two things that are clear during this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, it's that the liberal media is terrible. And the progressive Left is outright insufferable. The liberal media is making a daily habit trying to tank the markets with their trash reporting and desperate to trap this administration in a 'gotcha' moment for their broadcasts. It's sick. If there is one institution that could torpedo or threaten a united front in combating this disease, it's the liberal media. Also, they've tried to entrap this White House for three years, with each time ending in failure. They're an embarrassment. Period.
Jim Acosta's interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN's echo-journalism model is destroying the media's credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.— Jonathan Turley (@JonathanTurley) April 3, 2020
But there's also the progressive Left, who are jumping with glee at the number of Americans infected with this virus and playing political correctness police when it comes to those trying to do the right thing. Patriots owner Robert Kraft delivered one million masks on a plane to medical workers. Former ESPN writer Jemele Hill thought this was problematic because Kraft gave money to Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Yes, the only acceptable charity can only come from leftists or those who are anti-Trump. Talk about a hot take. Hill is infamous for tweeting that Trump was a white supremacist in 2017, which exposed long-standing biases at the sports journalism giant.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) decided to hurl the environmental racism aspect. I thought viruses targeted no race, creed, gender, or political group? Well, apparently this virus is a racist disease targeting people of color that came from China. Last but not least was Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, who used the number of U.S. Wuhan coronavirus cases to try and take a swipe at Trump but ended up peddling Chinese propaganda instead.
Trump loves to be number one! Even if it's mass death. It's great for ratings! U-S-A! U-S-A! pic.twitter.com/1ZlnDq6WDE— Markos Moulitsas (@markos) April 3, 2020

"Trump loves to be number one! Even if it's mass death. It's great for ratings! U-S-A! U-S-A!," Markos tweeted with a screenshot of the number of Wuhan cases in the country. It's sick. It's despicable. That's the American Left for you, broken and driven mad by Donald Trump. Yet, we all know the Chinese numbers probably are through the roof and much greater than that of the United States. We don't want to play numbers games, but now the Left, with their unbridled stupidity, has permitted this. The real death toll in Wuhan is said to be hovering around 40,000. Also, cheering sick and dying Americans to own Trump is quite the strategy and one that will keep making progressivism simply distasteful to most in this country and rightfully so. They're awful people anyway. As of today, there are over 270,000 cases in the U.S., with over 7,000 deaths.
This isn't an isolated incident, either. Julio will have something about Vox's crew. I wish I could say more, but these guys blocked me nearly ten years ago.
