Some people accuse Fox News of being biased to the right. I think there is some truth to that, but I have seen only a few articles over the last 10 years that seemed a little biased to me. I have seen nothing on Fox that I would consider outright lying as you can find regularly on the rest of the MSM. I think this article might be a bit biased because while they debunk several several claims made by Biden and others against Trump they don’t mention any where the left was correct. Maybe there weren’t any such cases, I don’t know. If Fox shows bias then it is probably mostly in what they don’t say. I don’t read any MSM sites or watch their news on TV. They all just make me mad.

Sometimes they have very good, here are the facts articles.
Other times not so much.
I think Fox is generally better than other MSM, but they are still MSM.
I used to listen to NPR, and could easily dismiss their bias. But then they went full on CNN, using impressive gold winning medal mental gymnastics to twist anything and everything into anti-Trump, with a panel of pundits to back up their bias. The way some MSM have politicized this is disgusting.

I cannot say Log Man.
Maybe the Covid19 info is overwhelming for some.
And a lot of people “lurk” and dont comment.
I would like to see more comments and insight of others as to what they think.
It is somewhat disheartening.

Hmmm.. Immediately off topic to Fox is good, left MSM is bad. Either agree or disagree.
Not much worth commenting on there. As to the original article:
The United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic in late 2019 by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) — an assessment seemingly at odds with claims by Democrats that the Trump administration left the country vulnerable to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
The preps and gear are only good when activated early. Trump’s “miracle” thinking caused all those plans to not get activated until people were getting sick in his own hotels. Governors are on TV every day begging for shutdowns and supplies. One guy facepalmed behind him during one of his press meetings. So yeah, he left the country vulnerable.
Go to YouTube and search for ‘trump “like a miracle”‘ Tons of videos. NONE from right wing sites. This is what it’s like to live inside a propaganda bubble. Gotta check both sides, folks, if you don’t like being blindsided.

According to this article, by the NYT, in 2005 Bush did order a stockpile of PPE, and Congress passed the law to do so in 2006.
But then that stockpile was depleted much of the supply in 2009 against the H1N1 and again in 2014 during the Ebola crisis.
And the government never replaced them.

According to this article, 3 out of 4 PPE gloves are made in Malaysia.
This article, originally post in August of 2018, details how much of our Rx drugs and supplies come from China: https://sharylattkisson.com/2020/03/__trashed-2/
As a response, these companies, Ford, GE and 3M are joining together to spin up for domestic production of PPE and ventilators: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/ford-partners-with-ge-3m-to-build-ventilators-covid-19-protective-equipment-2020-03-24?mod=mw_latestnews
Facts are, no matter how much they demand for PPE, and ventilators (governor Cuomo during his mealtdown yesterday), no one can just wave a magic wand and it suddenly appears.
If it comes from overseas, no one can order another country to send us all their supplies.
And to make it domestically, there needs to be a factory located, base materials sourced, production lines set up, and workers hired. That all takes time.
MSM needs to get off their, “I want it my way! Right away!” mentality.
