Coronavirus Coverage: Media Sucks

Gallup has come out with a brand new poll they’ve taken regarding the Coronavirus and who’s got high approval numbers and who doesn’t. According to the poll, US Hospitals got the highest approval during the Coronavirus affair and their handling of it with 88% approval. Only 10% disapproved.

Your kids’ daycare or school came in second with 83%, followed by your state government and your employer at 82% each. The CDC got 80% for it’s actions, while Vice President, Mike Pence scored a pretty partisan 61%. Donald Trump got a 60% approval rating. Congress came next at 59%, and dead last with a 44% approval rating…the only entry listed below 50% was the media.

So, basically, America is pretty much happy with the way everyone is working through this crisis, with the exception of the coverage of it. And if you break it down a little further, and take a look at the partisanship involved, you see a stark difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Approval range

What’s interesting in that is that as soon as you get to anything to do with the government, Democrats’ ratings plunge, while Republicans stay pretty consistent throughout the rating cycle until it comes to Congress, which has stonewalled aid several times. And when it comes to news media, Democrats are the only ones that think they are doing a decent job…by a LARGE percentage.

There is obviously a huge disconnect in this country right now, on pretty much everything. It seems the left can’t even bring themselves to accept reality when things are going well for someone of the other party. They’ve devolved into this brooding mass of two year olds that whine and complain every time they don’t get their cookie. In the end, it’s going to be the downfall of their party, as the real adults in the room do what should have been done years ago…send them to a permanent time out.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
