    Seriously, I try to watch them for a couple hours ---- and the only thing I get out of it is "we are all doomed, everyone is going to die an immensely painful death from CoronaVirus, so why not shoot myself to end it all early?"

    How do people watch that stuff???

    How is Trump’s approval rating not 0.0000? Alas, the great mysteries of the universe

    You're diverting the subject, but as I said ----- 0.0000 is apparently the survival rate from CoronaVirus (outside of Chris Cuomo) according to CNN.

    Yep. I've tried watching CNN a couple of times since mid March. Neither time did I make it more than 15 minutes, for the same reason.

    This is why everyone thinks they're going to die if they cross paths with someone not wearing a mask on a hiking trail.

    This is why our elected and appointed officials can't just make data and science driven decisions (assuming they have that capability).

    I think CNN is literally driving people insane.

    You'll like this... The science and data has been given the Joe Paterno treatment by CNN. :)

    OK, the JoePa comment made me smile. The days of debating that feel like centuries ago.

    I just need to turn it off. Being out-and-about in Colorado this weekend, people were all over the place. Daily cases are flat and deaths are down in Colorado, of course.

    That's what the base-line reality is, not what CNN says it is.

    People waiting to board a plane in an airport are most of their viewership.

    What about me is "nutty"?

    I'm on the record here as a non-Trump supporter - as I think you know.

    Not that I like Sleepy and Groping Joe either. I think I'm writing myself in for President this November.

    You said you are not a Trump supporter but you won't vote against him. That is nuts. "Sleepy and Groping Joe" is not the best candidate the Dems could have put forward. However he and most people in America would do less damage than four more years of the crazy, worthless, loon currently in office.

    Biden isn’t AS much of a liability as his cabinet and influencers will be. The far left will have their hands up that puppet’s ass from day one. Biden sucks, but he wasn’t a puppet of the far left until now. He is no longer able to think for himself.

    He is losing it, rapidly. I seriously doubt he would finish his first term, if elected. Not to mention the fact that his SCOTUS nominees would likely be slightly to the left of Rosie O’Donut. That would be disastrous for the economy and the country.

    "Sleepy and Groping Joe" has not EARNED my vote.

    He --- nor any candidate --- will not get my vote by "default."

    Lots of really stupid people in the US. This is almost certainly skewed but CNN got 1.8% of the votes when asked for trusted sources on Covid.

    Sleepy and Groping Quid-pro Quo Joe" is corrupt, senile, and sadly Is the best candidate the Dems could have put forward. Pathetic!

    Democrat Party = Party of Socialists and Marxists.

    Airports.

    But given that air travel is way down, their ratings clearly must have taken a hit.

    When the other option is to push the country into Socialism or Anarchy? You bet your sweet bippie I won't vote against him. It's called a "defensive vote". I really wish we could field a viable Republican that didn't have Trump's less than attractive qualities (his Mount Rushmore sized ego and his inability to let things go) yet had his drive and general intuition about what needed to get done. But we don't have such a candidate. So the proper defensive move against the liberal push to destroy America is to vote for Trump.
