OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion
CNN is a virtual clearinghouse for all the wrong information about Covid. They don’t fact check, they demonize debate, and over and over they distribute as gospel that which is later retracted.
Keeping up the tradition – one she helped establish – Brianna Keilar spread flat-out FALSE information on Friday about teachers and new Covid deaths. The alarmist report is wrong, and she won’t have to correct it, nor will Twitter punish her or take it down.
That’s how it works for libs. Especially in an alarmist report about THE TEACHERS! dying from COVID because of not being VACCINATED and most of all it happening IN FLORIDA.
BREAKING: WFOR IS REPORTING THAT 4 TEACHERS FROM BROWARD COUNTY HAVE DIED OF COVID IN A SINGLE DAY.
THREE WERE UNVACCINATED. WE DON’T KNOW THE STATUS OF THE 4TH. PIC.TWITTER.COM/UT4XW7IRC5

They got the number of teachers wrong, they got the context wrong, and they implied a connection with going back to school. All wrong.
THIS IS AN ABSURD FRAMING. BROWARD COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE NOT OPEN UNTIL NEXT WEEK.
YOU COULD SAY THIS ABOUT ANY OCCUPATION. IT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM BEING “TEACHERS” OR ABOUT WHAT SCHOOLS SHOULD DO REGARDING MASKS, VACCINES OR ANYTHING ELSE. HTTPS://T.CO/SUTNNSB0SN

THIS STAT IS REPORTED WITH THE CONTEXT THAT FLORIDA’S STATE GOVERNMENT OPPOSES MANDATORY MASKING OF CHILDREN. BUT SCHOOLS IN BROWARD COUNTY ARE ON SUMMER BREAK. THE TEACHERS DIDN’T GET COVID-19 IN SCHOOLS FROM KIDS. THEIR STATUS AS TEACHERS ISN’T RELEVANT… HTTPS://T.CO/FDRPWAH4WN

This is an interesting point:
IT’S AMAZING THE DEAD UNVACCINATED TEACHERS AREN’T GETTING THE “LOL UNVACCINATED PERSON DIED” POINT AND LAUGH TREATMENT FROM THE MEDIA. JUST SHOWS THE PRIORITY LIST AND AT THE TOP IS HURTING GOV. DESANTIS. I GET IT BUT BE LESS OBVIOUS, COME ON.
