Monday morning, a GQ correspondent and frequent CNN guest said that she feels unsafe as a journalist in America.
“I have to say, I feel less safe as a journalist in America these days than I ever did in Russia. A lot less safe,” Julia Ioffe said on Twitter.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has allegedly orchestrated the deaths of over 200 journalists, which is precisely over 200 more than that of President Donald J. Trump.
But as Ioffe showed later Monday during an appearance on CNN, she is given to hyperbole.
Big League Politics reported:
“This president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did,” said Julia Ioffe on The Lead with Jake Tapper. “The way he allows these people – the way he winks and nods to these groups, the way he says ‘I know I’m not supposed to say it but I’m a nationalist,’ the way he hems and haws when he has to condemn these people, kind of says ‘fine, okay, I condemn this,’ but then…”
Ioffe was cut off by another panel member who scolded Tapper for not pushing back on the claim. The segment devolved from there, and eventually Ioffe apologized. She begrudgingly apologized later on Twitter, making excuses for her ridiculous hyperbole.
“I clarified and apologized on air, but I’ll say it again here. This has been a very emotional and painful time, but I absolutely should not have gone with such hyperbole on the air. I apologize,” she said.

AG Bill Barr Calls Out Mainstream Media for Hydroxychloroquine ‘Jihad’
The media is furious that Trump suggested use of the drug.
Attorney General Bill Barr expressed his disappointment with the mainstream media’s coverage of the coronavirus epidemic when speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Wednesday, pointing to what he called a ‘jihad’ on the media’s part over the President’s suggestion of hydroxychloroquine being used to treat the disease.
“It’s very disappointing because I think the president went out at the beginning of [the coronavirus pandemic] and really was statesmanlike, trying to bring people together, working with all the governors,” said Barr of the federal government’s coronavirus response. “Keeping his patience as he as he got these snarky, gotcha questions from the White House media pool and the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher.”
The media has pushed hysterical claims of medical malpractice against President Trump for suggesting that hydroxychloroquine could prove useful in treating the disease- a claim backed up by many prominent figures in the medical and scientific community, some of whom recount using the drug to great effectiveness in treating coronavirus patients.
“The media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug. It’s quite strange.”
Barr totally ruled out the notion of issuing government certificates certifying citizens as coronavirus-free, an idea increasingly favored by liberal globalists and enacted to some extent in Germany.
The Attorney General also lamented the economic costs of the virus in America, reiterating President Trump’s desire that the cost not be worse than the disease. “We cannot keep for a long period of time our economy shut down just on the public health thing… So we have to find after the 30-day period, we have to find a way of allowing businesses to adapt to this situation and figure out how they can best get started.”
Barr’s remarks may suggest the federal government may be increasingly willing to consider working to roll back the disruptions to everyday life by the end of April.
“I’m not suggesting we stop social distancing overnight… There may come a time where we have to worry less about that. I don’t know when that will be.”
