If we’ve learned anything about the news media during the pandemic, it’s that they don’t actually care about suffering people; they just like to gawk at them on TV. And that notion was quite evident on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News when, out of one side of their mouth, the network decried states for deciding to reopen. And with the other side, they were gawking at struggling restaurants and saying the reopenings could help.
Correspondent Miguel Almaguer kicked off his report by chiding states and major cities for moving to reopen after the holiday surge in cases. “Tonight, as the U.S. tries to stop and slow the spread of more contagious variants of the virus, restrictions in some of the nation's largest and hardest-hit cities are now being rolled back,” he griped.
He even turned on the liberal media’s idols in Governors Andrew Cuomo (NY) and Gavin Newsom (CA), suggesting their easing of restrictions was going to get people killed. “Roughly half the country, including states like New York, Illinois, and California, have already confirmed cases of the highly contagious and perhaps deadlier U.K. strain and are now bracing for dangerous mutations from Brazil and South Africa,” he warned.
