Accuracy in Media


CNN anchor Brianna Keilar called out President Donald Trump’s latest response to the COVID-19 pandemic by saying that he is “peddling in debunked and illogical crap.’

Keilar made her remarks at the beginning of today’s CNN Right Now and stated that ‘the U.S. is losing its battle against the coronavirus, and the federal government is flailing,” and blaming “the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic [who] instead are escalating the attacks on doctors, scientists and facts, actively endangering the lives of Americans,” for the problem.

She continued on by saying that they are doing this as 60,o00 people are testing positive for the virus each day, not mandating the use of masks which are proven to save lives, and while the president says that the reason for the surge in cases is because of increased testing.

“That is total crap,” Keilar said. “The president is peddling in debunked illogical crap and tweeting instead of doing his job.”

Keilar went on to criticize Trump for “tweeting instead of doing his job.” zeroing in on his retweet of former game show host Chuck Woolery who said the CDC and doctors were lying about the pandemic and praise Dr. Anthony Fauci who has come under criticism by Trump and other for his statements on the pandemic.
