    Pence bars coronavirus task force members from appearing on CNN: report

    ( Crazy people our running the country. )


    By Joe Concha - 04/09/20 02:57 PM EDT


    Vice President Pence's office has barred members of the coronavirus task force from appearing on CNN for the past week, according to a CNN report.

    The contention appears to stem from CNN not carrying portions of the daily White House coronavirus task force briefings, including some question and answer sessions with top medical members including Anthony Fauci, an epidemiologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Deborah Birx, a physician coordinating the White House response to the virus.

    "When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air," a Pence spokesperson told CNN.

    Good. If CNN won't carry the briefing then then there is no reason for the experts to spend their time on CNN.

    2. Alert!

    Does Joseph Goebbels know about this? He would be most interested.

    This has to be made into a feature article for the Popular Dictator's Association Magazine. It should be a real hit. I hear the subscribers have a real hoot about Don and his gang.

    Oh...he's dead.

    4. Exactly and he is trying to convey to his fans that no matter what CNN reports, its fake news.

    Dangerous manipulative president.
    CNN has demonstrated that it is 'fake news' over and over again by lying about President Trump and twisting his words. They aren't interested in reporting TRUTH, their only desire is to 'get Trump'. CNN did it to themselves.

    5. smells like fascism to me....
    Nope. Just priorities. If CNN isn't interested enough to broadcast the briefings then the experts should not be spending their time going over what was covered in the briefing.

    6. Fucking child. An ADULT would be using every channel available

    to get the word out.

    I hate Republicans.
    LOL. Not if the outlet doesn't think it important enough to cover it via the briefings. People can go to other outlets to get the news about it.

    7. Extortion. Sounds familiar
    They are enraged that President Trump continues to be an effective President and Democrats demeaning him and lying about him STILL isn't working like they want it to.

    Crazy Howard Dean:

    Howard Dean calls for guests to boycott MSNBC over Trump briefings

    "I just told MSNBC I wasn’t going on their shows as long as they were broadcasting trump’s press conference," Dean tweeted. "I won’t make much difference if it’s just me but if 50 of you did it it would make a difference."

    It's wishful think to expect the entire home viewership of 50 to boycott it.

    CNN's current game is to show edited clips of the press briefing, interspersed with lots of spitball tossing. Why should Dr. Fauci or Dr. Birx or any other Coronavirus Task Force member be a live target for the spitballs? They spend enough time in the briefings without wasting time trying to communicate the same information while under harassment by airheaded CNN spitballers?

    I forgot to clarify... 'Domino effect' of NO task-force appearances on any network... We get everything we need to know from the non-Q&A potion of the press-conferences.

    All other Q&A sessions are just piñata-bashing exercises, hoping for a 'gotcha' moment.
