Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently took the Dallas Morning News to school.
Last week, Abbott announced that the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center would be used for Wuhan Virus patients. However, the federal government allegedly told Abbott that if the county did not accept the resource, it would be moved to another place.
For the Fake News media, this story was not spicy enough.
Instead, they tried to construct a misleading narrative.
“Governor threatens to move emergency medical resources from Dallas County if they aren’t used,” the DMN’s original headline stated.
“Gov. Greg Abbott’s chief of staff said that if Dallas County doesn’t accept the facilities by 5 p.m. Monday, the federal government will have to relocate it elsewhere,” the outlet initially reported.
Abbott was in disbelief about what he was reading and told the editors that they should be “ashamed.”
He tweeted, “This is such fake news by the Dallas Morning News. The audio tape of this episode has been available to the press. Federal officials told us those resources would be needed elsewhere if Dallas County didn’t want them. @DMN should be ashamed.”
This is such fake news by the Dallas Morning News.
The audio tape of this episode has been available to the press.

The governor clarified the matter on Twitter. He stated he was the one responsible for setting up the Convention Center for Wuhan Virus care.
Abbott has shined during the Wuhan Virus crisis.
His government has passed common sense deregulation measures to help businesses operate smoothly in a time where supply chains have been disrupted.
If the media were honest, they would be praising Abbott for his leadership in a time of uncertainty.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
