Drudge: Irresponsible Sensationalism!

QUOTE:  Forecasters at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine analysed the latest COVID-19 data at a local, national and international level.

To publish a shock headline like this – blame it on a medical school,  – and fail to point out it assumes a cure cannot / will not be found,  – is trash journalism!

This smells,…smells like an obscure researcher at an obscure medical school who just made his minions run some computer models to come up with a SCARE HEADLINE.

Too bad he didn’t have them doing something useful!

    Shock Claim: every year, we lose nearly that many to the regular FLU. A quarter that number, EVERY year, from FALLING DOWN. Seven and a half TIMES that number, EVERY year, from cancer. The world somehow manages to plod along.

    Fear porn. That’s what it is – and it’s completely irresponsible.
