The Tennessee Legislature Is Engaging In Partisan Sensationalism By Accusing The Press of Covid Sensationalism
This is the pot calling the kettle black. This is a GOP representative in a glass house throwing stones.
The GOP will do anything to gain the political advantage. In this instance, The Tennessee Legislature advances a resolution accusing the media of sensationalizing Covid 19. But wait…
Isn’t this resolution just as much of a political move at sensationalism to keep GOP voters in line and voting the GOP ticket?
“Before the Tennessee legislative session adjourned at about 3 a.m. Friday, the House advanced a resolution accusing the mainstream media of "sensationalism" amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The resolution congratulated Tennesseans “for clearly seeing that the mainstream media has sensationalized the reporting on COVID-19 in the service of political agendas.”
HR0340 was submitted on Monday by Rep. Micah Van Huss (R-Jonesborough Tenn). This is not the first time Rep. Van Huss has targeted the media. Earlier this year he submitted a resolution seeking to recognize CNN and the Washington Post as "fake news."
The new resolution from Van Huss accuses the media of shaming and criticizing "those who wanted to reopen their businesses, gather at the beach, or attend church services; however, the mainstream media is now largely dismissing social distancing narratives when it comes to demonstrations," the resolution states.”
We wonder what Mr. Van Huss would say about this, a Christian Camp reopening and causing people to become infected with Covid 19–Mr. Van Huss this is not fake news:
“At least 82 campers, counselors and staff at a summer camp in southwestern Missouri have been infected with COVID-19, according to state health officials.
Kanakuk Kamps, a network of Christian sports camps in the state, reopened their camps to thousands of kids beginning in May. Kanakuk chose to reopen after Missouri leaders said that there was a risk in letting camps reopen, but that they were confident that the camps had made plans to stop any potential COVID-19 outbreaks from happening.
Parents of Kanakuk campers were recently notified by email that one of the camps known as K-2, in Lampe, was temporarily shutting down after staff and campers contracted coronavirus.” People
Mr. Van Huss people are getting sick, seriously sick. People are dying. Now 82 campers from a Christian Camp are sick…
Isn’t it time to take your head out of the political sand and face reality?
