. . . and the national media is not happy about it. Here’s The “TODAY” show warning of an increase in cases and something called the “double mutant variant” without actually mentioning cases aren’t increasing in Texas or that the state is at risk for the “double mutant variant”:
Nearly 40,000 baseball fans attended the Texas Rangers home opener on Monday. Meanwhile, health officials warn of an increase in COVID-19 cases, driven by a new double mutant variant of the virus just found in the U.S. for the first time. @Miguelnbc reports. pic.twitter.com/jz4sM2pQGd

For starters, cases in Texas are not increasing despite what “TODAY” would have you believe:
looks like texas had under 1200 cases yesterday for the first time since may 2020 https://t.co/P451Z9icah

And Texas is not on the “TODAY” show’s own list of states at risk for “double mutant variant”:
Like we saw this summer, larger gatherings outdoors are just not the risk “experts” thought they would be. But the national media cheered one on and not the other. Weird how that works:
“How dare the Texas Rangers have a full stadium on opening day!!!”

President Biden hardest hit:
President Biden criticizes the Texas Rangers' decision to allow a full-capacity crowd at their stadium for their first game amid the concerns of his top health officials over recent spikes in Covid-19 cases. https://t.co/1wGH5pFm9D

Can we just please pause the virus-porn in states run by politicians journos don’t like? Pretty-please?
Today Texas reported a 10-month low in the number of Texans testing positive for Covid.
We reported 3 Covid-related fatalities. That's the 2nd lowest in more than a year.
And hospitalizations decreased again to almost a 10-month low.
More than 250,000 Texans got a Covid shot.
