    Originally they said it wouldnt be forever.... but when Newsom made the announcement last night.... it kinda sounded like this is what life is going to be like from here on out. There was no talk of an end date.
    LA wasn't shut down until today.

    Boomers watch Fox News, and Fox News initially told everyone that this was liberal media blowing things out of proportion to attack Trump. The first thing someone hears is what they're most likely to believe, and once they decide on an opinion no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise.

    Itís mind numbing how many people think this is just the Democrats trying to make Trump look bad. The democrats couldnít even beat an orange reality TV star in an election but somehow have started a worldwide pandemic to hurt Trump....Jesus Christ.

    Technically if we just had a free for all and let people get infected with no prevention it would peak and taper off MUCH MUCH quicker but it would come at the cost of many more lives.

    Democrats werent all that concerned about the spread either at the start. wasnt bernie organizing rallies and encouraging thousands of people to come? Not like he was making an effort to stop the spread.

    Also- I love how in the last week or so, it has become offensive to call this the Wuhan virus.

    CNN sits there and praises china's handling of the virus.... not mentioning they left their airports wide open for months after this broke out. Thats how its all over the world now.

    LOL... now its "be careful", but CNN is literally saying that all day long about the current Administration.... and thats nothing to question.

    I personally think its a waste of time to blame anybody for this..... but it seems mainstream media has one person to blame this all on.

    I havenít heard it called the Wuhan virus. Just the Chinese Virus. And yes itís idiotic to call it that as we have a nation full of idiots. It does create a stigma when in reality for people with an ounce of common sense it is a name based off where it came.

    Fox vs CNN. Blame each other, what the other side said is wrong. Canít blame democrats or republicans for the stupidity of a nation alone.

    I wasn't speaking about politicians, but specifically about Fox News and how they put Boomers in danger. But if you want to talk about politicians, then your argument is a false equivalency. Continuing to hold rallies early is not the same as committing insider trading, selling off stock when you know the market is going to crash while telling the public that it is liberal fearmongering. One was a mistake, the other was profiting millions off of people dying.

    well either they will force it upon you or exclude you from a lot of establishments if you dont have some type of proof of it. It sounds crazy but there is precedence for that type of thing.

    My apologies.... I was responding to someone who said fox news initially downplayed the threat of this and didnt take it seriously enough. I thought responding with democratic politicians who obviously werent that concerned about it when they were encouraging rallies a few weeks ago. Basically trying to advance their bid for the primaries at the risk of spreading the virus. (assuming they were completely aware of the severity of it)

    I dont think Fox news or basically anybody other than a few scientists believed this was THAT serious a couple weeks ago. I think its ridiculous to call out one channel as if this crisis was common knowledge by the rest of society.
