[See NewsBusters for more.] On Thursday's CNN Right Now host Brianna Keilar illustrated why the news media has the lowest approval rating of various institutions' coronavirus responses. In a lengthy and contentious interview with White House trade advisor Peter Navarro that was full of constant interruptions, Keilar would accuse the Trump Administration of being ill-prepared for the current pandemic and then accuse Navarro of wasting everybody's time whenever he tried to defend the administration's record.

The testiness began as Navarro condemned the Chinese government for their initial cover-up, saying that cost the world valuable time, but that nevertheless, the federal government and the private sector are prepared to meet the challenge.
