CNN’s vendetta against Donald Trump has gotten completely out of hand.
The network’s daily mission is to damage Trump any way possible – which is currently to attack him regarding the Wuhan virus.
But CNN got caught telling one blatant lie about the coronavirus.
CNN boss Jeff Zucker despises Donald Trump, and that hatred is making its way into the editorial decisions of the network.
An exposé by independent journalists at Project Veritas showed that reporters at the network have been steered into nonstop anti-Trump content.
The main vector of attack today is over the Trump administration’s handling of COVID-19.
Even though the United States has handled the global pandemic about as well as other countries, the American corporate press narrative is that Trump has been uniquely terrible at handling the crisis.
This is belied by the fact that all governors have said they’ve received all the resources they’ve asked for from the federal government and the death rate for the virus has been in steady decline for well over a month.
The so-called mainstream media are determined to fearmonger around the virus until after the November election.
CNN has been one of the worst offenders of this strategy, and they just got caught spreading disinformation about the virus.
Chris Cuomo, who’s repeatedly embarrassed himself on his coronavirus coverage, and CNN medical analyst Dr. Sanjay Gupta had an unbelieve back-and-forth where they blatantly lied to the American people.
Cuomo said, “Look at the U.K…How do they get these rapid tests? How are they getting it done in 90 minutes? Is the U.K. so much better than us?”
First of all, the UK is doing worse than the United States in terms of deaths per 1 million people in the population (683 to 489).
Second, the U.S. has the capability of using the speedier antigen tests, but they’re not as thorough as the current method of testing which is considered the gold standard among epidemiologists.
If Trump ordered the country to switch to the antigen testing model, he could be clubbed over the head for that decision and putting people in harm’s way.
Whatever Trump does, his enemies reflexively take the opposite position.
Cuomo and Dr. Gupta then waded into conspiracy theory territory that Trump was deliberately suppressing testing.
Get out your tinfoil hats! CNN’s political doctor, Dr. Sanjay Gupta dives into conspiracy theories, claims the administration intentionally withheld COVID testing. “I think that’s the truth now.”

This is truly insane. The United States has conducted more tests than any other country by significant margin.
Speaking of suppressing testing information, Bill de Blasio in New York City actively barred contact tracers from asking if COVID-positive patients had attended Black Lives Matter protests.
The disinformation campaign from Democrats and their media allies is despicable, and Americans need to make them pay at the ballot box in November.
