There’s a growing narrative on lib Twitter that the CDC changed its COVID-19 isolation guidance from 10 days to only 5 days because of lobbying by Delta Airlines:

“Just fly fewer planes!” they say which would strand thousands and thousands of travelers around the country. No biggie:

And, *all of a sudden*, the CDC isn’t credible because THEY say it’s not credible;

A number of blue-checks are furious at the CDC for making the change, and the outrage appears to be growing:

Well, testing would be nice if the Biden administration didn’t, you know, fail at providing them:

Note: The pivot away from cloth/procedure masks is underway as well:
