CNN slammed a Trump statement about the actual death rate of the COVID-19 virus. While this is not surprising they are now reporting what they
criticized as factual, because it is.
According to The Daily Caller: CNN journalists bashed President Donald Trump for saying on March 4 that the death rate of the novel coronavirus is likely much lower than data indicates, but the network published a report Monday evening that backs up the president’s previous statement.
Trump said that he believes the mortality rate of the virus “is way under one percent” during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity earlier in March. The president was widely criticized by media pundits for his comments, and numerous CNN journalists trashed him over it.
