First, we can’t confirm this screenshot, but we have no reason to believe it isn’t real. Apparently during Chris Hayes’ show, after Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed, MSNBC noted that conservatives were celebrating while thousands died of the coronavirus:

They actually think this helps their cause.

CNN, which only seems centrist if you compare it to MSNBC, also had a similar hot take, noting that Barrett’s swearing-in ceremony at the White House could be another super-spreader event:
This CNN chyron isn't news. It's vile, poisonous propaganda.
They're not a news organization.
Do they have any definitive proof it'll happen? No, but they don't care. pic.twitter.com/6GGi6ZLhCT

CNN would be a "potential superspreader event" if they only had enough viewers to qualify.

@CNN can no longer be taken seriously.

So much journalisming.

@CNN is a joke.

That can't be real. Is that real? It can't be.
No one could be so bitter at such a momentous moment.

Good thing we don’t need CNN:

I wonder if there are protests tonight will that be considered a “super spreader” event @cnn

Can you contract COVID-19 if you’re protesting outside the Supreme Court dressed in a handmaid’s outfit?

It’s wasn’t even just a chyron on MSNBC — it was a story:
