The Pandemic Pep Squad in the news media

The Pandemic Pep Squad in the news media

The Pandemic Pep Squad in the news media could barely contain their delight when the number of confirmed cases in the United States surpassed every other country.

“Including China!!!” They unquestioningly proclaimed.

Because if there’s one country the Pandemic Pep Squad credulously believes, it is the country that set this virus loose on the world.

Other than the Democrats in Congress, have you ever seen people so excited at the prospect of more sick Americans?

Of course we have more confirmed cases.  A) we have a larger population than every other country on the list* (except China) and B) we have expanded testing whereas China stopped testing altogether.

[*I had to add “on the list” because reading comprehension isn’t in everybody’s DNA]

Per capita? What does that mean?

Well, don’t ask the members of the Pandemic Pep Squad. They’re too busy cheering on the Wuhan virus to think about silly stuff like math and statistics.

Now, about China. It’s been reported that 80% of the Wuhan virus tests that China sold to the Czech Republic gave false results.  Spain bought 640,000 testing kits from China and they’re having the same problem.

Fact is, we have no earthly idea how many cases of Wuhan virus China has because they’re freaking lying to us.  And if the tests they’re selling to these other countries are the same tests China used (before they stopped testing altogether), then their total confirmed cases is pure fiction.

But for the Pandemic Pep Squad, you can take China’s numbers to the bank!  Yes sir!  They’re totally on the up-and-up.

For these China Cheerleaders, every single “report” out of China is unquestioningly presented as fact.

But CNN and MSNBC won’t air the White House briefings because “THEY LIE!!!!!”

They want you scared.

They want you paralyzed by panic.

Here’s a good example.

Last night, NBC News “reporter” Kasie Hunt quote tweeted a Michigan Law Professor who claimed that Henry Ford Hospital was taking steps to limit access to lifesaving equipment by weeding out those who cannot be saved.

the Pandemic Pep Squad - Kasie Hunt

It was a lie.  Henry Ford Hospital debunked the claim and explained it was merely a worst case scenario plan. The Michigan Law Professor deleted his tweet. But Kasie kept hers up for ten hours before finally deleting it.

And in those ten hours the tweet spread like wildfire.  Panicked hysterics went insane over a lie.

Like this panicked hysteric who, of course, responded exactly how Kasie wanted, by blaming Monster Trump:

The Pandemic Pep Squad hysteric

What the Pandemic Pep Squad is doing is reprehensible.

And yet they won’t stop.

They’re not reporting news; they’re repeating rumor.

They’re not informing the public; they’re intentionally terrifying them.

Dr. Deborah Birx tried to set the record straight – you know, in the press briefing the Pandemic Pep Squad refuses to air:

And how did the Pandemic Pep Squad respond to Dr. Birx?

You should read through the replies to Lockhart’s tweet.  These people believe every stupid bit of tinfoil hat crazy that the Pandemic Pep Squad burps out.

Forget floating hospitals.  We need to get the US Navy to deploy floating insane asylums for the freaks and weirdos who actually fall for the crap the Pandemic Pep Squad is peddling.

And while they spread fear and terror among the American people, the Pandemic Pep Squad just can’t shut the hell up about how wonderful China is.

I’m telling you.  It really is a sight to behold.

And heaven forbid anyone criticize China on CNN!  Their Pandemic Pep Squad will shut you down faster than you can say “China is responsible.”

You’d think after all these weeks of watching the media play Chinese Propagandists while ginning up panic here at home, I’d be so numb to it that it couldn’t possibly make me angrier than I already am.  But every day brings with it a new low from these cretins, and my fury only grows.

What the American news media has done during this pandemic is inexcusable.

It is un-American.

And I can’t tell you how much I hope that when this is over, Karma hits these irresponsible, fearmongering pukes dead between the eyes.

    There it is again!

    “…every day brings with it a new low from these cretins…”

    And they will continue, they will crank this up and up and UP!

    The venom and hate has surpassed mere means to an end, it’s their religion, their lifestyle, their mission, and their occupation.

    And this afternoon? A new low. There isn’t the slightest doubt in my mind

    Remember the good ole days when all they did was call us names 24/7?

    Heady times.

    “A) we have a larger population than every other country (except China)”…you’re forgetting India.

    The Spanish Flu represents possibly the worst medical catastrophe in human history (an estimated death rate of 10-20% of those infected resulting in between 17-100 million deaths or approximately 1-6% of the world’s population) — killing more people in 24 weeks than AIDs in 24 years; killing more people in one year than the Black Death did in 100 years. During the 3 years of the Spanish Flu (Jan 1918-Dec 1920), India’s fatalities, the highest in the world, were estimated at 12 million (about 5% of its population at the time). Given the high population density in India’s cities, the squalor in those cities (think Calcutta), the lack of a large enough public health infrastructure, and a day-to-day economic structure, India is primed to be hit very hard by COVID-19.

      I didn’t forget India. Look at the tweet from that Ryan guy. India isn’t included on his list. Why bother pointing out that India has a larger pop when it isn’t one of the countries he lists? Don’t be such a bean counter.

        From what you posted, Ryan tweeted number of cases worldwide; Hunter tweeted “context matters” and he posted populations. Your statement is “Of course we have more confirmed cases. A) we have a larger population than every other country (except China) and B) we have expanded testing whereas China stopped testing altogether.” but no one mentioned testing. So why are you blowing smoke with your response (“Look at the tweet from that Ryan guy. India isn’t included on his list. Why bother pointing out that India has a larger pop when it isn’t one of the countries he lists?”) when it’s clear your original statement is not about Ryan. I’m not being a “bean counter” as you say; I am interested in accuracy — is that too much to ask? [I placed the tweet immediately after as a point of reference. To claim my statement wasn’t about that tweet is absurd. Unless you crawled into my brain, “it’s clear” seems an odd phrase to use. It would be like me saying “it’s clear you just wanted a reason to show everyone how smart you are.” How would I know? I can’t read your mind. Speaking as the one who wrote the damn post I can say clearly the list in that tweet is the context. — Dianny]

        FYI: India has more than 700 cases right now and given its circumstances and previous histories with epidemics, that number will increase quickly. If the subcontinent has any numbers akin to Spanish Flu, the whole world will be going through all of this again when COVID-19, using India as its base, circumnavigates the globe (like the Spanish Flu did) and comes back for Round 2. Hopefully, we will have a vaccine by then.

          Oh, good Christ. India has more people than we do, even though India isn’t one of the countries listed in the ones with the most cases in a post I wrote about journalists celebrating that we have the most cases. Happy?

          It’s not nice to mess with Dianny. People around here don’t take lightly anyone mistreating our hero. Get dressed and go out and play in the yard.

    The medical equipment China sent to Italy and Spain has been found to be defective.

    Also, consider that China sent test kits to Czechia with an 80% fail rate. Is there any chance the # of cases in China is correct?

      You must’ve missed the part where I said that.

      Now, about China. It’s been reported that 80% of the Wuhan virus tests that China sold to the Czech Republic gave false results. Spain bought 640,000 testing kits from China and they’re having the same problem.

      Okay, no more quaratines for you guys. It’s damaging your reading comprehension skills.

    It seems CNN believes if they keep digging the hole deeper they can actually get to China.
