CNN’s COVID-19 Coverage Reveals ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’: Fox

CNN’s coronavirus coverage criticized: ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome strikes again’ | 

Fox News – As coronavirus concerns sweep the nation and make news across the globe, liberal CNN is being criticized for placing blame for its spread on President Trump and politicizing the alarming illness.

CNN’s website on Friday declared in its top story that Trump is hoping for a “miracle to make virus disappear” and called Trump’s comments “divorced from the gravity of the coronavirus situation, only fanned the impression of a leadership vacuum.”

At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., CNN’s politicizing of coronavirus has been a hot topic in the halls of the Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center as some attendees are hesitant to shake hands and hand sanitizer is prominent.

NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News from CPAC that CNN’s coronavirus coverage reminds him of the way the network covered the strike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

“They were talking about any sort of consequences, in terms of loss of life on the American side, hypothetically – which ended up not happening – would be the fault of the president,” Houck said.

But while Soleimani was a terrorist who “didn’t care about the American people,” coronavirus doesn’t have feelings.

“The coronavirus is not something that responds to what Donald Trump says … it does what it wants to do. So the idea that this president should be blamed for what’s going on here is really nothing more than an attempt at fear-mongering to scare the American people into thinking that they’re going to get the coronavirus and it’s going to be the president’s fault for not keeping them safe,” Houck said.

Another CNN headline, “Trump stumbles in first efforts to control virus response as fear spreads and markets fall,” critiqued the way the White House handled Wednesday’s press conference, using 20 anonymous sources. Read more.
