President Donald Trump brag about the ratings of his daily news broadcast the meeting on the coronavirus Sunday, and suggested that audience numbers-rather than misleading speech, and he has been in they are pushing the discussion in the media about the end of the practice of broadcasting their live and unfiltered.
“Because the evaluation of’I news conference. Very high, degree ending, Monday Night Football model’according to the present(New York Times), the Lamestream media is going crazy,” King tweeted Sunday afternoon.

The Queen of that tweet Four other people References a New York Times story, mentioned the President daily briefing as a”ratings hit.”
However, although the ACE is the framework of debate whether his briefing should be live as caused by jealousy or political ambitions of the freedom of the press, in reality the debate columnist and staff in CNN and MSNBC for the center of the ACE of the bath public danger of the wrong information and spread false statements about the state of the coronavirus pandemic.
As the Times reports, Trump’s daily news briefing on the coronavirus caused a huge the numbers: 8.5 million in cable news, which is actually the”maximum ratings of the season finale of’The Bachelor.'” (Does not include viewers on broadcast television or online streaming, it’s possible to increase that figure by millions of more, if not millions, more people.)
Trump believes that this is an opportunity to brag about—a sign of his popularity and, in theory, the public trust in his leadership in a time of crisis.
The problem with this line of thinking is the fact that many people are not adjusted to the briefing, because of ACE, but because they want to keep the latest Cov and our policy. In these presentations it is not just a king who spoke, but his Cov task force, which includes top public health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci, the widely respected National Institute of Allergy and infectious diseases, and Dr. Deborah bill Alex, the doctor noted that her work combating HIV/AIDS and the White House Cov response coordinator.
Coronavirus pandemic has caused an economic crisis, policy confusion at home and abroad, and widespread suffering around the world—it would make sense that millions of tone to hear the country’s senior officials provide clear, accurate information.
This is accurate, it is essential to transmit accurate information in a time of crisis, the crisis has prompted many political analysts and members of the Press believe that this is dangerous, the present Trump the words to the public via live streaming programs. ACE has made dozens of false claims in the presentation, including the exaggeration of the potential of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment Covid-19, and wrong to say that anyone who wants to test-CoV infection can be obtained one.
The voice’s Matt Yglesias argues that, for live broadcasts of the Trump of the briefing on the basis that they”substitutes for the rally held for political purposes, rather than a genuine attempt to inform:”the
It’s never good when politicians lie. However, in a public health crisis, you have a lot of people to seek accurate information and some people turn to the news media. This is important for those of us working in the media try to provide this information.
When a person turn on the TV, you will see the President of the United States to the inaccurate optimistic assessment of the progress of the testing, vaccine research, and deal with it to encourage people to be careful with their hand washing and social distancing than they otherwise might be. The cost of living.
And at the same time to provide a back briefing”fact check”is better than nothing, it doesn’t really undo the harm of showing it in the first place. What so-called news coverage, the inclusion of this fact, the President said things, however, focus on providing people with accurate information—that’s not currently Covid-19 method of treatment, scale very well and leave the hospital the risk of getting overwhelmed, unable to provide ventilation, for everyone who needs them, makes it morally urgent need to do everything possible to slow the spread of the virus until a more comprehensive testing regime can be put in place.
When prominent members of the media and news anchors like MSNBC host Rachel Maddow argued that the TV network broadcast Trump’s briefing, this is not because they are not happy, the people against the political more and more attention. This is that the politicians involved is the use of this note for the political interests and harm the public with lies.
