CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today kept up the mental psychosis on Wednesday when it came to ensuring viewers stay crippled in fear of COVID-19 and view required masking as the lone backstop against illness and death. Specifically, they argued flying’s “less safe” and “cases will continue to go up” because Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ended the CDC mask mandate on flying and public transportation.

In the case of CBS, they brought in former CDC head Dr. Tom Frieden to give their takes the backing of Science. Frieden didn’t waste any time, arguing required masking is needed in the much the same way we have drunk driving laws, food inspections, and requirements for medical prescriptions:

[W]e rely on the society to make sure that your kid doesn’t get hit by a drunk driver, that the food we eat in a restaurant doesn’t make us terribly sick, that the rest — that the medicines we pick up at the pharmacy are not contaminated. In the same way, we need the government and society to be able to protect us if a more dangerous variant comes or another health threat comes.
