As the USA could possibly become a new hub of the outbreak, according to the World Health Organization, Americans need to hear from real physicians and medical experts, not spin doctors. The public should not be watching a government response to the COVID-19 pandemic through partisan eyes but with a microscope. USA taxpayers must insist on being the priority, not the major corporations which received a stimulus package and used it to buy back stocks. The average American is the one who pays taxes and they should insist on being the focus of a massive payback.
The major broadcast and cable TV network news organizations are starting to cutaway from POTUS political repetitions and endless rambling by finally taking a giant step in the right direction by dropping out from Donald Trump’s briefings. They should now hold the administration's feet to the fire and insist on providing benefits for #We The People. The coronavirus stimulus can’t be a corporate bail-out. Americans need a new plan for relief. Since the worst of the pandemic is yet to come, Americans should only be listening to the medical experts.
City Images recommends that unless experts are providing valuable information they could be doing a Public Service and broadcasting for the greater good as well as exercising an even greater power to the American people if they stopped airing them altogether.
Republicans should not place corporations ahead of the immediate needs of the American people.
It appears that these so-called daily briefings are being used as electronic Cam Pain rallies to satisfy Trump's flawed GOP political party message, which under a more fair practice could have fallen under the equal time rule.
The equal-time rule specifies that USA radio and television broadcast stations must provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it. However, since 1983, political debates not hosted by the media station are considered "news events," and as a result, are not subject to the rule.
On August 22, 2011, the FCC voted to remove the rule that implemented the Fairness Doctrine, along with more than 80 other rules and regulations, from the Federal Register directing a "government-wide review of regulations already on the books" to eliminate unnecessary legislation.
His diss information rallies can be summed up in three of his quotes. "I take no responsibility at all" "We're not shipping clerks." It's a two-way street, governors have to be nice and respectful" What will he say next?
