Pressure Builds on Zuckerberg as Facebook Rivals Dump Trump
(Newsweek) As social media companies have increasingly enforced their rules against what they and many in society see as hate speech and misinformation stemming from President Donald Trump, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been facing additional pressure to take similar steps.
Our nation is facing a national healthcare crisis. It is at war with the coronavirus. Unfortunately, much of our political leadership is failing us in our efforts to stop the coronavirus. Many political leaders suffer from “the head in the sand virus.” They refuse to take decisive action to stop the spread of a disease that cost lives and seriously impacts our health.
In Hamilton County Tennessee, the County is facing an increase in Cornavirus infections. The County Mayor is a Republican. He ignored the Cornavirus threat and wanted to rush to reopen and return to normal. Now the County (and the State of Tennessee) are facing increases in infections causing a threat to human life.
After the obvious happened, what does the GOP Mayor do? He continues to follow the GOP head in the sand approach hoping people will do the right thing:
Joe Biden is running a set of political ads against Donald Trump. It did not take Trump long to accuse Biden of 'running false ads.'
10 million cases and counting. Covid 19 rages on world wide.
Donald Trump consistently hits the media as spreading fake news. He effectively criticizes the media painting it as the enemy of the people. Chuck Todd recently added fuel to the fire.
NPR “Attorney General William Barr said Thursday that he doesn't believe President Trump has overstepped the boundaries between the White House and the Justice Department in a number of big recent cases.”
Some states just had to reopen regardless of the medical data. The Covid 19 situation was under control. Their message was for their state’s residents to get back to normal.
Now, it is not working out so well.
