Washington state radio station won't air Trump briefings because of 'false or misleading information

Sooner or later, it had to happen. His record number of lies and misleading statements was bad enough when only about politics but now we are talking about people's lives. 

 

 

KUOW, will no longer be airing White House press briefings on the coronavirus “due.  "We will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time," it added. a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time.”

Censorship

Actually, an attempt at certainty the sources of news are factual. When you chose facts over misinformation, it is not censorship. Just good media coverage. I would point out that this is just the first domino to fall. Did you ever think there would be a president who's lies and misstatements were this bad? My ITYS syndrome is really kicking up.

The really scary part of ITYS Syndrome (I told you so) is the feeling of euphoria you get just before realizing the accuracy of your predictions about Trump's incompetence mean much harm for America.

Our liberal posters are sounding more and more like Hillary every day. Maybe a walk in the woods would help.

Seriously... the ITYS bench mark is President Donald J. Trump... promises made, promises kept.

4 more years... for some a hallelujah moment others... a trip down memory hell.

Four more years of chaos and redefined "promises"?  Highest personnel turnover in history. 45 "acting" departments heads.  The man accidentally ordered a halt to all trade with Europe and the Oval office for God's sake.  Kids in cages. Scandals. Indictments. Abandoning the Kurds who fought for us. Making us a laughing stock in the U.N. with no repercussions.  Building an economy on a house of cards tax cut. It has been a real circus but the Trumpers just keep defending every gaff, misstep and porn star. 

 

Will he win another 4 years? It is possible.  Just like Covid-19 was possible.

Four more years of record employment. Four more years on record unemployment.
Four more years of having a President that stands up for our country (after the weak Obama).

Yes, you would not want that.

The Corona Virus, along with Trump's inept response to it, has tanked the continuation of any such "records" KidBoy2.

Trump only "stands up" for himself ..... riding on the coat tails of President Obama's enormous success and falsely claiming credit for an economy he inherited!

Looks to me like once the Obama recover and the Trump tax cuts for the rich wore off, he had no other tricks.  As for that stands up for our country part, no foreign leader ever was caught making fun of Obama on a hot mic (I am CERTAIN that was really an accident). Obama never got laughed at while speaking to the U.N. Prince Charles never gave Obama the finger while scratching his nose (Trump style). Obama never abandoned our allies on the battlefield. 

 

Your boy may get elected. He was appointed the first time. But you can't change this leopard's spots. He is a raging incompetent.

I can feel the liberal desperation oozing through the computer screen. The drama increases exponentially each time president Trump approval goes up. Watch how the lies morph into facts. Let the sky screaming preseason begin...

I can see it now... 4 more years of delusional activity by liberals.

Wrong ..... "What you feel" are known facts negating what you'd like to believe!

The drama increases exponentially each time president Trump approval goes up.
Wrong again .... It's the lies that "increase exponentially" each time Trump opens his mouth!

Watch how the lies morph into facts.
Yup .... That's Trump's dishonest play book alright!


Let the sky screaming preseason begin...
And that would be Trump barking at the moon!

I can see it now... 4 more years of delusional activity by liberals.

"I can see" ALL intelligent and informed Americans removing "delusional Trump" from office!

So that indicates that you're now able to "see" Trump's "lies and misstatements" and how "bad" they really have become.

I support KUOW's decision, again, not being a fan of censorship.  HOWEVER, I remember (it's on tape and was recorded!) his statements about "....this is a HOAX"....."...it will just disappear".... "...it will go away during the summer"......"....we have it all under control".  The list goes on and on.  THEN, and I really had to laugh at this one...."....I KNEW it was a pandemic before anybody else did."  As I stated previously......ONLY LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS!!!  They are having to waste too much time disavowing his lies and ignorance.  They have must more pressing issues, like trying to SAVE LIVES!!

I, having been an editor for a small newspaper in Miami years ago, also am against censorship.  HOWEVER, with all the lies, insults, self-promotion and misinformation being spewed by him, a little less is much better in this time of world wide panic and uncertainty.  When I see him on TV, I simply use the "mute" botton, or change the channel.  I retired from the healthcare industry last year, and the ONLY people I am listening to are the doctors, scientists, and the professionals.  I think, at this time, these are the only folks we should be paying attention to.

In a Fox News Town hall, Trump stated: "We've done more tests in eight days than South Korea has done in eight weeks." Donald Trump’s comparison of US, South Korea coronavirus testing is wrong. Here's why

 

  • The best numbers available don't support what Trump said. As of March 24, about 348,582 people in South Korea had been tested since it began in early February. A credible database of U.S. testing estimates that between March 15 and March 24, the U.S. conducted about 331,000 tests.

  • These numbers do not reflect the different population sizes: South Korea, about 51.5 million; and the U.S., about 327 million. When you consider per capita testing, which is the more important number, South Korea’s efforts were six times higher than that of the U.S.

Of course you realize he was told this by Dr. Deborah Birx.

 

South Korea is the size of Indiana and completely isolated by a fence and wall  and water....  and their constitution doesn't have safe guards like ours. The people are very disciplined and compliant. They did an outstanding job. 

 

The US is a very mobile nation and is 99% bigger than South Korea. Our job is VASTLY more difficult. We're doing a outstanding job too according to the WHO. I agree and support the Commander in Chief during this war against the invisible enemy... Covid-19
