Media bias and hysteria is absolutely real

By Kevin Roche

Lest you think the media isn’t determined to create as much hysteria as it can and turn a blind eye to developments in one state while praising another, even though the outcomes are the same, look at this chart, courtesy Twitter. (Twitter Link) California and Florida are one obvious example of this dynamic at work, but any state that dares to not unduly restrict the freedom of its citizens gets pilloried, while other states with extreme lockdowns get lauded, notwithstanding the exact same outcomes. Iowa got beat up, New Mexico got singled as a paragon of epidemic virtue. You can see the extreme difference in outcomes, right?
