Coronavirus April 6 Presidential Update
During the Presidential news conference on April 5, 2020 I did notice how the President attempted to teach the media in front of him how to investigate issues like in the old days when journalism served the public guided by a code of ethics. Those days are long gone. I have been trained as in instructor, so it was easy for me to see the teaching methods the President and his staff were using. The President and his staff presented scientific test results, explained how those tests and studies were conducted, and told those reporters where to find the information on the Internet. For the most part I could see how those instructions went right over the heads of those reporters. One after another those reporters asked stupid questions. The President and members of his staff politely pointed out, there are no stupid questions. They calmly answered the reporter’s questions. There were a few instances when a reporter attempted to use the news briefing as platform to push or advertise their own fake stories. It was rather ironic to see reporters attempt to push fake news stories and convince the President those stories were true while the President and his staff were not only battling that virus, but the spread of fake news by offering research and facts backed up by reference material. It seemed those lessons were like foul tasting medicine to those reporters. Listen to the questions some of those reporters asked. You can see how they were not listening to the President or his staff. After a subject was explained, some of the reporters told the President to consider the fake news published by the station they worked for. There has never been a time in American history when a President had to fight an enemy as well as the press. The only other man who had to face battles on those two fronts was General Patton. Strange as it may seem, it may have been General Patton’s views on communism that launched those attacks from the media.
Update April 6, 2020
The question and answer period in today’s Presidential update was quite different than yesterday. The President stood up as Commander in Chief taking the lead in a war. Reporters again asked questions based on fake news. The President asked then to identify their source. The reporters could not. The President refused to answer questions designed around fake news. In most cases the President once again pointed reporters to reliable sources of information. Some reporters became openly angry at the President’s refusal to allow fake news to be spread during the live updates. Many accusations were leveled against the President based on fake news. The President and his staff had to repeat themselves time and time again repeating the fact that they were meeting with the experts compiling data, facts, making decisions, asking questions, and moving forward. Reporters would not give up their reliance on their own fake stories with no proof, no references, no reliable data, and nothing but misleading information designed to accomplish nothing but raise ratings. The majority of reporters covering Presidential updates are Centered On Vicious Individual Desires and attacks on our Commander and Chief at a time this country needs unity, common sense, and the truth the most.
