The Media is a Public Health Crisis

Bars, restaurants, offices, libraries, and schools have shut down. Times Square and Los Angeles freeways are deserted. But the media goes on, without a break, spreading distrust, doubt, and panic. Everything in the United States can shut down, but like roaches emerging from the rubble of a postapocalyptic world, the media goes on lying, smearing, and undermining the President of the United States.
The media only knows how to do one thing and that’s take a crisis and make it even worse.
While much of the country was coping with the massive dislocation caused by the Wuhan Flu, the media was focused on accusing President Trump of racism for calling it the Chinese virus.
At a White House press briefing meant to provide the public with information about the government's plans to fight the virus, reporters complained about the name. The briefing interruptus was a small sample of the nomenclature campaign by the nomenklatura obsessed with political correctness.
While entirely missing the point.
The People's Republic of China has rolled out a sophisticated campaign to blame the Wuhan Flu on the United States. In a time when there's no barrier to conspiracy theories, the ChiComs know that a portion of the population will believe that the Wuhan Flu came out of one of our labs, instead of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, just like they believe that a Communist defector didn't kill JFK, America didn't land on the moon, or that Islamic terrorists didn't fly planes into the World Trade Center.
What's at stake here is more than bragging rights. The People's Republic understands that the Chinese Century, its manifest destiny of becoming the leading world power, is on the line. The Wuhan Flu significantly undermined its global credibility. The only way out is to shift the blame and convince the world and useful idiots in this country that the virus is really America’s fault.
If China wins the race to reemerge successfully from the Wuhan Flu and establishes economic preeminence once again, the Chinese Century is back on the menu. And that requires sabotaging America's recovery both in our own country and on the world stage.
Every time President Trump calls it the Chinese virus, he's making an important point. Meanwhile the media has become a repository of People's Republic propaganda. The problem extends far beyond whether to call it the coronavirus, the Wuhan Flu, COVID-19, or the Chinese virus.
