Harbingers of DOOM: CBS Decries Trump’s Messages of HOPE in Crisis


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

President Trump drew the ire of CBS Evening News and White House correspondent Weijia Jiang on Monday for daring to keep American spirits up, and letting them know there was “light at the end of the tunnel.” Citing unnamed “experts,” Jiang decried Trump’s optimism by claiming the country wasn’t even in the tunnel yet.

A swing and a miss. The failed rebuke of the common idiom made no sense since not being in a tunnel essentially meant the country wasn’t going through a crisis at all.

Despite the fact that we already knew and expected the pandemic to stretch resources thin, anchor Norah O’Donnell seemed astounded by an inspector general’s report that documented it. “And back here at home, a new report from the inspector general for the Department of Health and Human Services finds the U.S. health system under extreme strain, plagued by shortages and burned-out medical professionals. And that report is putting the White House on the defensive,” she touted.

It’s worth noting that, since late March, O’Donnell has refused to report how the President had rallied American companies to convert their production lines in order to make the needed equipment.
