CNN Anchor Takes Death Toll Numbers Out of Context, Compares COVID-19 to Vietnam and 9/11

Brian Stelter of CNN admits that good reporting involves “putting out the numbers, but in the proper context.” He then admits that this story is too important–the health consequences too serious–to make it all about Trump.

But he still makes it all about Trump.

He begins comparing the virus with Vietnam and the terror attacks of 9/11. However, Brian Stelter of CNN forgets to mention that these wars and acts of terror resulted in the deaths of many under 30 years of age. He also fails to mention that these incidents have caused serious physical injuries or wounds, as well as emotional trauma like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Brian Stelter of CNN is not only deliberately causing panic and fear by drawing these false comparisons but also denigrating the service of our veterans; further, comparing the viral outbreak to terror attacks minimizes the suffering endured by the victims and their families of terror attacks like 9/11.
