“Pence’s office, which is responsible for booking the officials on networks during the pandemic, said it will only allow experts such as Dr. Deborah Birx or Dr. Anthony Fauci to appear on CNN if the network televises the portion of the White House briefings that includes the vice president and other coronavirus task force members. CNN often only broadcasts President Donald Trump’s question and answer session, which sometimes includes the health care officials, live on-air.” CNN: Pence’s office blocks public health officials from appearing on CNN. (Which is worse? That Pence’s office is blocking health officials from spreading important information unless a media outlet shows the entire episode of Press Conference, or that CNN broadcasts Trump’s QandA misinformation rallies live? I’m gonna call this a tie.)

+ “First, it was the media that was at fault. Then, Democratic governors came under fire. China, President Barack Obama and federal watchdogs have all had a turn in the crosshairs. And now it’s the World Health Organization that’s to blame.” As pandemic deepens, Trump cycles through targets to blame. (He’s also cycling through a few hundred pages of symptoms listed in the DSM. Showing it live costs lives.)
