Gosh, it’s like our good friends in the media want the country to panic.

Why ever would they want that?

Note, we originally grabbed Mediaite’s tweet and headline for the story which said, ‘MSNBC EXPERT PREDICTS 15-20% MORTALITY RATE, ELEVENTY!’ … but they deleted it.

Huh, wonder if they deleted because Greg Gutfeld called them out?

Wait, you mean terrifying thousands (millions?) of Americans doesn’t help them? Who knew?

From Mediaite:

Virologist and MSNBC science contributor Dr. Joseph Fair said on Monday that 80 percent of the U.S. population would survive, with a 15 to 20 percent mortality rate amongst individuals that are elderly or have underlying conditions, if coronavirus becomes widespread.

“We’re honestly behind the curve,” Fair claimed, adding that “getting testing up and running is the most essential step.”

“Getting testing up and running in every place we can, in every city, in every public health laboratory around the country is key for us to understand how widespread this epidemic is. This is not to fear monger. It would be irresponsible for us to create panic when it’s undue,” Fair said. “That being said, we know 80 percent of the population is going to survive and a typically 15 to 20 percent rate of mortality for those individuals that are both elderly or have underlying conditions.”

Science contributor.

Alrighty.

But hey, he’s a doctor so he knows, right?

Good point.

It does appear that our good, hard-working, trust-worthy friends in the media are trying very hard to feed panic.

Which inevitably hurts the country and thus the president.

*adjusts tinfoil*

Is there really such a thing?

We think not.

But hey, at least they deleted it, right?
