For nearly two years, conservatives and Republicans were vilified as conspiracy theorists for raising questions about COVID hospitalization numbers when it came to who was there because of COVID and who just happened to be infected. On Monday, CNN and anchor Jake Tapper finally arrived at the scene to ask the obvious questions after CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky admitted to Fox News that number is inflated by upwards of 40 percent.
Tapper prefaced his late revelation by prefacing to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that “the case numbers aren't really a significant as hospitalizations because what's important is how sick people are getting.”
And since CNN had obfuscated the idea that the CDC was misleading people, Tapper had to spell out what was going on.
