Their whole purpose in life is to sell advertising by keeping you feeling like you have to watch all the time EVERY DAY ALL THE TIME, and be depressed.
They do it by published only bad news, suppressing good news, and spinning every single thing they say to make sure they tell the story they've already written.
If this were the pandemic they're trying to sell it as:
1) There would be piles of dead bodies of homeless people under bridges and in alleyways of every city in the USA and UK.
2) We would be having a thread every three days "Lannis died of COVID", "NVNL is gone - COVID", "RIP CrazyFrog - Pandemic Victim", "Brickboy - Gone". And we're not. Not anywhere near it.
QUIT HYPERVENTILATING OVER THE "NEWS"!!! IT'S NOT REAL!
