      @Rory Cannon you would have stopped eating those magic mushrooms will letting your big sister beat your brains out with a bat. Biden is riddled with dementia. He can’t string a cogent sentence he can’t remember how many points he’s talking about in a speech and after 2 months of screaming that Trump was a xenophobe for closing China out at the end of January he’s finally decided that Trump did a good thing.

      @Robert Franz thinning the herd? Most people that are Dying are dying in democrat-run States. That’s why Democrats want write-in votes so they can get more illegal aliens to elect Democrats.

  3. The fact that they have to say that CV isn’t a conspiracy is incredibly sad and a stark commentary on the mental health of our communities.

      You do know the CIA came with term to shame ones that had questions about JFK murder….did the media get that right…HUMMMM

    • @Brian C the tests are actually just telling us who has a confirmed case. When the talk about the flattening the curve it is not going to happen for a while. There are people who are going to get tested tomorrow that have had symptoms for a month, but that case will get reported a a “new” case tomorrow. The curve could be flattening as we speak but there is no way to know.

    • Reporter uses the “C” word (conspiracy) while showing a color cartoon of the alleged virus. Too much.

  4. Sane person: It’s a naturally occurring virus, like many others. It’s no different from other plagues that’ve occurred throughout history.
    The MAGA person: It’s a conspiracy! Viruses don’t occur naturally! Open your eyes! Shakespeare made the black plague with Nikola Tesla in the basement of the Vatican with the help of Venusian/Nordic aliens! How are you so dumb?!

    • @whatthebleep Wait, so first its a story about the origins of a virus, and next its about orange man bad?
      The typical viewer would’ve caught that inconsistency.

      Not saying you’re MAGA, but…

    • @Debate Me! – There’s also, “Zero evidence” that you have a functioning prefrontal cortex. So there’s that.

    • Robert Franz | April 6, 2020 at 8:48 PM | Reply

      @Debate Me! You’re making the same mistake bad TV writers make.

      Willing suspension of disbelief is expected in fiction, but if they’ve established that next week the plot can go literally anywhere, with no boundaries, they lose the audience.

    • @Robert Franz no there’s tons of videos saying that it’s not man-made. In fact experts are saying that. However just because they’re experts doesn’t mean that everything they say it is true. I think what the experts are addressing are crazy unfounded conspiracy theories where people are walking around saying that this for a fact is a weapon. That’s nonsense and they’re using signs to the blanket. However while focusing on that singular topic they are saying some things that I do not believe to be accurate. This could be man-made we just don’t have any evidence to support that. A paragraph also notice the experts don’t make any attempt to prove that it’s not man-made. They specifically focus on where it came from I did not in any way if I lose weight that it may have came from somewhere else before that. Now if an expert tells me that it couldn’t have been man-made introduced into an animal and then Pastor human then I would accept that but they’re not even discussing that. They’re purely talking about it as if it was a virus that was created in a lab and then given to a human and their debunking that. However that’s only one way it could have originated. It could have been created by man introduced an animal and then passed from the animal to a human. And that could have been done specifically to cause the kinds of analysis that’s being done now which is people are focusing on the source of the virus without considering that they may be deeper layers to evaluate

      I’m very good at what I do but I’m also human so I make mistakes.

    • @Debate Me!

      Mankind can’t create a virus on its own. You need a virual source from somewhere. You were doing so good debunking conspiracies.

    Open market with live animals in overcrowded cages bitten by bat or maybe bat used to feed them then passed to humans most likely.

    • Stephen Young | April 6, 2020 at 8:09 PM | Reply

      A few years back PBS showed asian open markets. They had a cage full of kittens maybe a year old all lined up by role an held in place by the neck. They all had their tounges out due to heat and thirst. Bet there was close to thirty in them for human consumption. Don’t forget asia lower wages, job competition makes it hard to get by!

    • Or any wild bat could’ve bitten one of the animals which humans handle and consume.

      Dave D No. It really doesn’t. This is SARS 2020. Their government is terrible. They silenced everyone about this. Doctors and social media forums were actively being shut down by their Authoritarian control. Say what you want to about Trump. He deserves everything he gets. But the Chinese government is as corrupt as you will ever find. At least we have free press and speech, here.

    • CCP as dirty as UN, and WHO

  15. After this one appreciate how the producers of Contagion researched this topic well and come up with realistic screenplay

    • springlumpy Noticed that too. In fairness the pandemic has been widely written about in science journals and governments responses to it have been tested and found wanting in simulations, reports written etc. President Plague was even given a briefing on the correct responses.

    And yes very similar to how the virus in the 2011 movie “Contagion” started. Steven Soderbergh your a genius.

      So why is China and the World Health Organization covering this up

    • @Shadow People That’s a good question, I’m sure someone will tell you that Trump told them to.

    • @Shadow People You should ask Trump. After all he claimed to be the first one to know this was a pandemic: “This is a pandemic, (…) I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.” But wait a minute, he also said: Trump Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”; Trump Jan. 30: “We think we have it very well under control. We have very little problem in this country at this moment — five — and those people are all recuperating successfully. But we’re working very closely with China and other countries, and we think it’s going to have a very good ending for us … that I can assure you.” ; Trump Feb. 10: “Now, the virus that we’re talking about having to do — you know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat — as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April. We’re in great shape though. We have 12 cases — 11 cases, and many of them are in good shape now.” Trump Feb. 23: “We have it very much under control in this country.”
      .. and let’s not forget that this is a Hoax, right?
