Conservative media is depressing

In an effort to gain some objectivity, I'll often read conservative news outlets and opinion pieces to try to understand what is behind Republicans' policies and thought-processes.

In the midst of this shattering crisis, I'm depressed to see that conservative Republicans haven't learned a thing and they're still supporting Trump and downplaying the crisis by deflecting responsibility and acting with unrelenting partisanship.

Here's a smattering of titles of articles and columns:

Shameful media still slamming Donald Trump during coronavirus crisis

To Protect the Future, Hold China to Account

The real lesson of the Chinese pandemic
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/mar/19/the-real-lesson-of-the-chinese-pandemic/

It's particularly concerning that they're trying to blame China for a worldwide menace. The xenophobia is bad enough but these people don't offer anything positive!

If half of our country is still unable to recognize this danger that faces all of us, we're doomed.

1. Do Republicans have "thoughts"

Or are they hallucinations?

4. Honestly, when the deaths hit their families and those

5. I monitor 'conservative' media for various reasons

but gaining objectivity is not among them. I have long accepted that everyone has inherent bias. Every. One. No exceptions. I donít expect to gain objectivity by monitoring RW publications; it does provide insight into which direction they are trying to steer the propaganda, however, and the articles you linked are consistent with the wishes of Hair Furor. In that regard, conservatives seldom disappoint.

7. I know, right?

All the wasted energy trying to lay blame.

China does it, Iran does it, the conservative media do it.

Glad nobody I know is wasting time with such a useless activity.
