Michigan seems to be ground zero for the Reopen America protests, thanks to their governor using the crisis to audition to be Biden’s vice president. CBS News This Morning showed up to cover Michigan’s testing operation for COVID-19. And as you see from this Project Veritas expose, the word “news” isn’t exactly what I’d use here.
“We could have done other stuff,” registered nurse complains.
“Apparently, the news crew wanted more people in the line,” said a Cherry Health supervisor.
“We pretended. There were a couple of real patients, which made it worse,” said another registered nurse.
The video in full, including a statement from CBS News, can be seen here. Sure, they could have put it on YouTube. But we all know how that will end up.
Here’s the thing that’s most maddening. Say, purely for sake of argument, that things were as bad as the media and politicians made them out to be. You should WANT them to be not bad. If it turns out we were over-prepared, that should be a good thing. Good news should be, you know, good.
But good news doesn’t get people to stay home watching CBS News This Morning. Nor does it fit the agenda of the producers. Nor does good news scare people into ceding their lives over to government, going out wearing masks thinking they need to wear masks, and completely abandoning their jobs in order to “flatten the curve” and “slow the spread.”
What looks like has happened, more and more, especially based on this new O’Keefe video, is America was scammed. Allegedly. That’s an opinion, Facebook “independent” fact checkers. You read that? MY OPINION IS AMERICA GOT SCAMMED.
Meanwhile, people are being put in jail for going back to their jobs. What’s going to happen to CBS for staging (allegedly) a fake COVID-19 line to make the virus seem worse than it actually was? Anyone?
CBS News the Lying Eye so why should we ever trust a thing they say 99% of their news is lies
agree! chinese broadcasting news(cbs) is worthless. the dumber than dumb gov. from michigan got her jd from michigan university-no different that ucla or any liberal ca. college. now cnn is c/o the a new, minute video by Trump’s campaign edits a comment by commie blitzer. cnn has edited all of Trumps daily virus update. Trump made a comment about eating healthier, cooper indicated that Trump said you should mow your lawn and eat the grass. a total and complete lie, but what can one expect from cooper. wonder if it was his sperm in the surrogate mother or from a local sperm bank for the homeless?

CBS? Dan Rather’s CBS?!? I am SHOCKED! SHOCKED, I tell you!
@Deplorable Me: Yes, that CBS where Dan was a no where near covid positive while in a helicopter crashing into the cold waters of lake Michigan.
CBS News used video footage from a Coronavirus confinement ward at an Italian hospital to portray New York as “America’s Epicenter” for the pandemic.
Wonder why we feel we are being scammed?
