After Spreading Panic CNN Cuts Away As Trump Admin Delivers Good News On Vaccine For Coronavirus
CNN and the Democrats have been spreading panic for days about the coronavirus but just as the White House was giving some good news about a vaccine for the coronavirus they cut away.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is in charge of the National Institute of Allery and Infectious Diseases said, that at the earliest they could start trials within 6 months for a vaccine to stop the coronavirus as he was explaining the timeline, CNN immediately cut away to go to Bloomberg’s Town Hall event. Initially, the United Nations World Health Organization was claiming it could take a decade to have a vaccine.
CNN has spent days spreading panic about coronavirus.
But last night, just as the White House was explaining the timeline for a vaccine trial, CNN cut away to a townhall with Michael Bloomberg.

Fauci explained that full distribution could take a but that would depend on the severity of the pandemic, it could be sooner.
The Associated Press ripped the Democrat sin a fact-checking article this week claiming that they are distorting facts about the coronavirus readiness. They specifically targeting Mike Bloomberg and Biden over their comments during the Democrat debate. The AP says that Biden and Bloomberg are both wrong. The Associated Press wrote:
They’re both wrong [Biden and Bloomberg] to say the agencies have seen their money cut. Bloomberg is repeating the false allegation in a new ad that states the U.S. is unprepared for the virus because of “reckless cuts” to the CDC. Trump’s budgets have proposed cuts to public health, only to be overruled by Congress, where there’s strong bipartisan support for agencies such as the CDC and NIH. Instead, financing has increased.
Indeed, the money that government disease detectives first tapped to fight the latest outbreak was a congressional fund created for health emergencies.
Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.
The broader point about there being “nobody here” to coordinate the response sells short what’s in place to handle an outbreak.
The public health system has a playbook to follow for pandemic preparation — regardless of who’s president or whether specific instructions are coming from the White House. Those plans were put into place in anticipation of another flu pandemic, but are designed to work for any respiratory-borne disease.
Among the health authorities overseeing the work are Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC’s principal deputy director and a veteran of previous outbreaks, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH’s infectious disease chief who has advised six presidents.
“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,” said John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health, which works with government at all levels to improve the nation’s response to high-risk health crises. Some Democrats have charged that Trump decimated the nation’s public health leadership, but Auerbach said CDC’s top scientific ranks have remained stable during the past three years.
The media and the Democrats are playing a dangerous game and people already don’t take them seriously as it is after the whole impeachment debacle. The way they are handling the coronavirus could be the final nail in the coffin of their 2020 hopes.
