CNN Makes Up Hurricane Maria Death Toll Number, Claims Trump is Lying For Disputing It

Published

The fake news media is working overtime to discredit President Donald J. Trump ahead of Hurricane Florence’s landfall in the Carolinas.

“Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico,” said a Thursday CNN report. “President Donald Trump denied this reality as a hurricane barrels toward the Carolinas.”

However, at the end of August, CNN struck a different tune in a skeptically written article about the Puerto Rican government upping the death toll.

“Puerto Rico’s true death toll from Hurricane Maria remains elusive as the storm’s one-year anniversary approaches,” said that report from August 29.

After saying for months that only 64 people died in the storm, the Puerto Rican government upped the death toll to 2,975 after a university study made the estimation.

“But the higher figure, based on the findings of researchers from George Washington University in a study commissioned by the US commonwealth’s government, is only an approximation, not a concrete list of names, according to Gov. Ricardo Rossello,” the report said.

So the fact is this: No one knows how many people died as a result of Hurricane Maria. But since it is politically expedient for CNN, the propaganda arm of the DNC, to bash Trump at every possible turn, facts do not matter.

CNN wrote Thursday’s dishonest hit piece in response to two Tweets by the President proclaiming the truism mentioned above – that the actual death toll from Hurricane Maria is unknown.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000 …….. This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!” he said in back-to-back Tweets.

As usual, Trump has snuffed out the mainstream press’ nonsense, which he has been doing since his campaign days.

It undoubtably drives them insane, and only fuels more dishonest fake news hits against him, bolstering his case that he is the subject of unfair media coverage.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
