[See NewsBusters for more.] Once again, CBS is finding the “silver lining” to a global pandemic that has killed almost 300,000 people and is destroying the economy. This time, the CBS This Morning team sent a reporter to Venice, Italy to find the upside to COVID-19. Co-host Gayle King described the environmental rebound as a response to humans “mucking everything up.” But first, co-host Anthony Mason explained, “Venice, one of the world's most famous cities, has suffered without its usual tourists. But it's enjoyed an unintended benefit.” Reporter Chris Livesay cheered, “There's one silver lining no one can deny: staying at home has been largely good for the environment. And here in Venice, this lagoon city has returned to its pre-industrial tranquility.”
