Even Fox News declared,
"A 7-year-old old boy from Savannah, Ga., with no underlying conditions, became the youngest victim to die from the coronavirus ..." (Emphasis mine.)
Like Fox News, virtually all of the media repeatedly reported that the child had "no underlying conditions."
Even my local radio station — repeating the deception every 30 minutes for hours on end — which, among other conservative programming, carries The Rush Limbaugh Show, helped perpetuate this latest example of Wuhan virus "fear porn."
The AP — whose stories are often widely distributed in the media — did more accurately report that the boy died "with COVID-19." However, the AP went on to say,
"The boy had no other chronic health conditions, according to data released by the state[.] ... The boy's death comes amid nationwide debate about the risks that children face in getting infected or spreading the coronavirus, particularly as the school year begins."
The implication is that schools should not reopen, fall sports should not be played, and America must remain in shutdown mode. If not for our own sakes, we must do it "for the children!" As is often the case with so many things when it comes to the Wuhan virus and the drive-by media, few things could be farther from the truth.
As of late Friday evening, except for one Savannah TV station — whose more accurate account I first found via Facebook — I could find no drive-by media telling the whole story on this tragic episode.
