This video has been recommended by Dr. Robert Redfield the director of the CDC. It’s pretty simple animation but it makes the point well.

As someone who recently spent almost a week hooked up to a ventilator (and probably wouldn't be alive today without one), I can attest to the importance of ventilators and the need for an adequate supply.

Some neighbors showing appreciation to our DC health care workers here in Georgetown. Nice to see something positive in the face of adversity.

I wouldn’t call a “hack”, But she unquestionably took this “out of context. Here is the rest. “I'm not talking about me. I'm talking about Mike Pence, the task force, I'm talking about FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers.”

Full quote. “I want them to be appreciative. I don't want them to say things that aren't true. I want them to be appreciative. We've done a great job. And I'm not talking about me. I'm talking about Mike Pence, the task force, I'm talking about FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers.”

In this case it would be more appropriate to point out that the New York Times reporter took this quote out of context.

I hadn’t expected to see this ever. But I have to say hats off for giving credit where credit is due.

Our colleagues at Robertson Monagle & Eastaughj did an excellent analysis of what is being called Phase III -- The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

Our colleagues at Kelly Drye and Warren did an excellent analysis of the small business provisions of the CARES Act which creates the the “Paycheck Protection Program” (“PPP”). Small biz owners should read this.

The coronavirus is certainly bringing a lot of people together in agreement across untraditional lines.

Maybe I misunderstood. I couldn’t agree with you more about role of professional journalists. I think the cable channels are doing a service by showing the briefings unedited including statements from the physicians and others. All the best. And I’ll start reading your blog.

I didn’t mean to start an argument, sorry. I thought the NBC reporter went too far & became obnoxious, and the president responded Inappropriately. But I think Americans can make up their own minds and don’t need to have situations like that edited out by gate keepers in media

I was responding to these words that you wrote: “Why are cable channels airing these briefings live...better to air segments”. I’m not criticizing your broadcast career, I’m saying I think it’s a good thing that Citizens can now get access to original sources and bypass Editors.

The nightly news still exists. In fact a long time acquaintance now fills Walter Cronkite’s CBS spot. Why don’t you watch that and stop obsessing over the fact that other people have access to live coverage of informative events that you’d like to deprive them of?

Yes, for decades news organizations decided what would and would not be covered. Starting in the mid 90s technology developed so citizens could have more access. I worked on making that happen at AOL and I find the suggestion that it was better in the old days abhorrent.

You suggested that the updates should not be carried live. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others speak during those briefings. I don’t know if you watch them live or simply watched the chopped up excerpts that have circulated, but the other speakers have been extraordinarily informative.

You realize you’re suggesting censorship and essentially a totalitarian approach to information dissemination? That approach might make you and quite a number of people in my home state of Massachusetts happier, but it’s actually hypocritically Orwellian.
