On Monday, Presidnent Donald J. Trump had a conference call with governors to discuss plans concerning the coronavirus pandemic. If you found out about this conference call via Left wing media outlets, particularly the New York Times, you were likely severly misled.
The New York Times, along with a few other publications, ran headlines like “Trump to Governors on Ventilators: ‘Try Getting It Yourselves.'”
Trump did not say the governors had to fend for themselves. Rather, Trump said, “respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Points of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
The headlines obviously (and likely intetionally) left out this extremely important context.
Making matters even worse was the fact that these seemingly intentionally misleading headlines were backed up with tweets from NY Times employees and big name Leftists.
Julie Bosman, a national correspondent for the New York Times, tweeted a partial quote from Trump, making it appear as if he was declining to help governors. She expressed her outrage (or supposed disbelief) at what Trump had said by simply saying, “Wow.”

Another New York Times employee (this one from their editorial board), Mara Gay, also helped spread this Fake News. You might remeber Mara Gay from another recent controversy.
She was in the news not too long ago for thinking that 500 million dollars divided into 327 million people would equal over one million dollars per person. It’s actually just a little over one dollar per person.
When caught in this error, she didn’t laugh it off and admit it was a really dumb mistake. Nope. She claimed the corrections were motivated by racism.
In this case, Mara Gay didn’t simply make a stupid math mistake, she outright lied. She tweeted, “Trump told governors this morning they are on their own….”
Trump told governors this morning they are on their own:
“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” Mr. Trump told the governors during the conference call, a recording of which was shared with The New York Times. https://t.co/K0sont7MBc

There were many other mainstream, Leftists doing the same. For instance, David Corn, bureua in cheif at Mother Jones and MSNBC analyst, and Bill Palmer, a blogger with over 300,ooo twitter followers:
Donald Trump told governors this morning they’re on their own. https://t.co/kBAx7yGXQx

Donald Trump's day so far:
– Tells governors they're on their own
– Tweets illiterate attack on New York Governor Cuomo, deletes it
– Stock market drops by another 2,700 points
– Does this dickhead still think it's a hoax?
– Trump is going to prison
– It's still only 3:40pm

Washington Post and New York Times are both running misleading headlines that the President told Governors they're on their own to get respirators. That's not what he said. And they wonder why people aren't treating this seriously.

Erickson is right, too. There is no question why the distrust of the media is high.
Every chance the mainstream, leftist media outlets get to manipulate and twist something Trump has said, they jump at it. This is causing a major divide in this country, even on an issue that in theory should be completely non-politcal.
Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax
A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.
Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.
According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.
But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.
Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.
Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.
“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.
Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.
Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.
In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.
“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.
America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.
A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
