It’s clear by now that Donald Trump isn’t using his daily press conferences to try to calm or inform the nation when it comes to the coronavirus crisis. Instead he’s willfully spreading disinformation, while taking out his personal frustrations in increasingly grotesque fashion.
It’s time for these live press conferences to end. MSNBC contributor Kurt Bardella has the right idea:
It’s time for the media to stop airing these propaganda rallies masquerading as press conferences. Let him have them. Record them. And then fact-check them BEFORE airing them. Offer viewers who desperately wants facts and truth the accurate context! https://t.co/8v4Pq1A568
