That 60 Minutes Story on Ron DeSantis and Florida's Vaccine Rollout Is Wildly Flawed
CBS cut the part where DeSantis carefully explains why the reporter's narrative is wrong.

Huh- imagine that

It's an accusation that doesn't really stand up to scrutiny: For one thing, Publix—like many large corporations—gives money to both Republicans and Democrats. But more importantly, the decision to have Publix coordinate vaccination was not even made by the governor's office. According to Jared Moskowitz, director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, it was his offices that recommended Publix. Moskowitz, a Democrat, has said that Publix was the best store for the job, since it has more than 800 locations across the state.


Then we have this

Increases in Coronavirus Cases Are Happening Mainly in States With Stricter COVID-19 Rules
The Washington Post nevertheless blames "a broad loosening of public health measures."


And people are worried about netfix?!


Except for Nebraska, all of the states mentioned by the Post still legally require people to cover their faces in public. And except for Nebraska, all of these states continue to restrict indoor dining in restaurants. Minnesota allows restaurants to operate at 75 percent of their capacities. The same rule took effect yesterday in Pennsylvania, which previously had a 50 percent occupancy cap, a limit that still applies in Delaware, Maine, and Vermont.


The Post nevertheless says "experts…agree" that rising infection numbers are largely due to "a broad loosening of public health measures, such as mask mandates and limits on indoor dining," along with "increased spread of the more transmissible [virus] variants." The evidence so far does not seem to support that theory.

CBS has that reputation.. They were sued by General Westmorland for libel back when I was younger.
