The U.S. debate over restrictions for fighting the coronavirus intensified in the last few weeks, as protesters labeled mandatory lockdowns as “tyranny,” while medical workers and health experts cautioned that lifting them too soon risked unleashing a greater disaster.
We’ve seen it happen time and again: clambering for attention in our click-driven world, major news outlets cherry-pick sensational stories and dramatize their headlines. This tactic has blown countless news stories out of proportion and COVID-19 isn’t one of them.
Americans are skeptical of the news media. A recent Gallup Poll shows that 55% of Americans disapprove of the way the media have handled the coronavirus coverage — that’s a higher disapproval rating than Congress, which is saying a lot.
And the public’s response to the coronavirus pandemic reveals its distrust.
And we can now tell why Americans don’t trust the mainstream media.
A recent video that surfaced on Twitter shows plenty of mainstream media reporters that removes their masks as the cameras are turned off.
Explain to me why the media takes their masks off when they think the cameras are off? Is it all for show? #fakenews #LamestreamMedia looks like the rules only apply to us peasants. #obamagate #qanon pic.twitter.com/rlET581ytJ
