Veteran’s Day Edition

From CNN: President Trump made the claim an untold number of times on the campaign trail: That the media would miraculously stop covering the coronavirus the day after the election. “That’s all I hear about,” Trump said at one October rally. “Turn on television, ‘Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid.’ A plane goes down, 500 people dead, they don’t talk about it. ‘Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid.’ By the way, on November 4, you won’t hear about it anymore.

What an awful thing to say – suggesting that news outlets were dishonestly hyping the pandemic to ruin his chances at re-election. This was obviously not true and journalists at the time called Trump out for the patently false claim. But he kept on repeating it anyway. At rallies. On Twitter. To anyone who would listen.

Now, one week after Election Day, the proof is visible for anyone to see. The coronavirus continues to receive large volumes of coverage, with headlines and network news segments highlighting the dangerous rise in cases and hospitalizations taking place from shore to shore. Tuesday marked the highest number of cases reported in the US with 131,970. It was also the eighth consecutive day of more than 100,000 cases in the US.
