He actually worries the hell out of me.
I've been noting this for some time. The media and the government -- essentially, these two institutions have fused; they are partner operations in the same corporation -- endlessly peddle fictions to the public on the theory that the public cannot handle the truth, and will panic, or bomb mosques, if they are told the truth.
Witness the government and media assuring us -- falsely -- that Alton Nolen's religion was all but irrelevant to his Jihadi Beheading Rampage.
This interview of the director of the CDC -- the first, best, and only line of defense against a major outbreak of a deadly disease -- with Sanjay Gupta of CNN seems to be of a piece with that idea of telling the morons whatever you have to tell them to keep them quiet and peaceable.
The director of the CDC says that you have no fear of infection by ebola unless you are in direct contact. So, he says to Gupta, neither of us is at any risk of infecting the other just standing here, talking to each other, at a distance of a yard or so.
The CNN anchor in the studio asks about a sneeze, and Gupta then points out that the CDC's own guidelines state that infection is a risk in cases of either direct contactor close proximity of three feet or less with an infected person.
The CDC guy then blathers something about taking each case individually on its own merits or something.
These people must think we are all idiots...read the rest here...
OMG!!! You have to watch the video. Notice how she talks sloooower so we can understaaaaand her. It's not a highly contaaaaagious disease it's an infectiooooouuuus disease now stop panicking...OMG!!! It's like they are spewing talking points for Ebola...trying to convince us of something that isn't true and not doing a very good job of it. They are the JV team of your high school reporting channel. It might be funny if lives weren't at stake....
