Media ignores US President's pandemic briefings because they consider them useless

124

The largest US media have noted the complete futility of Donald Trump's pandemic briefings. Many stopped sending their correspondents and even stopped broadcasting events online.

Business Insider believes that the blame is not only for several identified cases of coronavirus from White House correspondents, but also because Trump uses distraction tactics.

It consists in diverting the attention of viewers from the immediate topic of the briefing.

 

"Trump has frequently resorted to tactics more familiar from his raucous campaign rallies: boasting of his accomplishments, floating misinformation, attacking the press, and taunting Democrats,» notes Business Insider

The Post, The New York Times, CNBC, The Washington Post and MSNBC completely stopped attending these briefings "because the information no longer appeared to be valuable to the important ongoing discussion around public health.»

At the last briefing of last week, Trump announced that the total death toll from coronavirus could exceed 200 thousand people, and in connection with this disappointing forecast, the isolation period was extended until the end of April.
