A public radio station in Washington state, KUOW, will no longer be airing White House press briefings on the coronavirus "due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time."

The president has participated in the briefings with the administration's coronavirus task force almost every day, standing alongside members of his Cabinet and public health officials.

"KUOW is monitoring White House briefings for the latest news on the coronavirus and we will continue to share all news relevant to Washington State with our listeners," the station said in a tweet.

"However, we will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time," it added.

How the **** are you supposed to fact check in real time information, much of which, is being given out for the first time? These people have the emotional and intellectual maturity of toddlers.

Liberals PISSED that their campaign of fear and hysteria hasn't hurt Trump at all in the polls while Biden can barely string a single sentence together....and with no way to take credit their only goal at this point is to extend and prolong the economic misery as much as they can

Trump scares these folks to death, and not for the reasons they are stating. They understand that Trump speaking directly to the public resonates and connects with Americans during these press conferences because they are unable to filter his message with their slanted, biased coverage.

Trump making it through this crisis unscathed or even strengthened is their worst nightmare.

No first amendment right to the airwaves. Radio stations have to serve a public good to get a license. That's why they have all those PSAs in the middle of the night.

There is no right to the airwaves. But once that license is given, Viewpoint discrimination is a clear violation of the first amendment

But censoring the president during a national emergency purely out of partisan politics is just fine?

University of Washington researchers found Covid 19 before the CDC had even developed tests. They, along with other Pac 12 medical schools, do excellent research.

The first amendment gives Americans the right to an FCC license? Are you sure about that?

So are they allowed to discriminate based on viewpoint if they are publicly funded? Serious question, I don't know. I would expect that public dollars be spent in an apolitical manner. Maybe that's too much to ask.

I realized that Washington State was full of lunatics when some student group at UW wanted to remove a statue of Marine ace Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, claiming that the statue honored a "murderer". F*** them.

The First Amendment has nothing with the public airwaves. Pull their license and let their listeners hear static. F*** them.

And who the F**** trusts any "fact" checker?

You can still pray all you want in school. Fellowship of Christian Athletes and other religious organizations, Meet at the Pole, moments of silence for private prayer/meditation are all still allowed. The Bible is still taught in history and English classes. The only thing that has changed is the school administration can't have their own prayers, as that's an endorsement of a particular religion.

School prayer hasn't gone anywhere.

They are free to do what they want. But, they shouldn't be receiving a dime of taxpayer money. Public broadcasting is an anachronism.

The only network covering it is Fox News.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

Did they switch when Trump left? Or not cover it at all? (Watching on FoxNews)
No idea, just checked and all of them are doing regular programing.

Public radio station bans the POTUS press conference wrt one of the most important events/responses in my lifetime. Now that's public service for you.

Don't pull their license , pull their funding until they fire their management and hire someone that understands what the role of public radio is. I don't necessarily agree that Our tax $ should be used for radio broadcasts but definitely not a broadcast that is this tone deaf and obviously heavily biased.

Out of pure curiosity, I wonder if liberals in America are pissed at China? The Communist Chinese Government started this entire mess, they hate homos, they thumb their nose at environmental regulations (they still haven't reached peak coal)....but American liberals act like they want to suck China's small communist cock. Why is that? Ignorance? Stupidity? American media propaganda?

Why do American liberals put their PC bull**** above everything else?

You realize that tens of millions of dollars has been spent to protect those rights...right?

Not just over the last 58 years, but also in the present.

The progressives have never stopped trying to end it completly.

So do they also think Fauci is lying? Burke's? I guess everyone on the stage must be since they can't expose the people to it. No, just can't stand to see growing approval despite all their efforts to tear Trump and the country down.
