Staying home during the COVID-19 crisis is tough. It’s emotionally difficult. It’s scary. But every New Yorker who stays home is helping us save lives. Every empty street means we’re all doing our part to help make things better.
@scottlange @emilynussbaumThe federal government definitely messed up... but the New Yorker's coverage, among others, strongly suggests bureaucrats at the CDC and bad policies at the FDA were the biggest factors, not the political appointees (who have been awful in other ways, especially comms stuff)
Stay home as much as you can my friends. I’m a native New Yorker - we define ourselves by being defiant in these situations. This is NOT a time for defiance. This wasn’t a terrorist attack. It’s a pandemic. DON’T BE STUPID.
Devastating takedown of the New Yorker’s hatchet job on AG Barr. The magazine’s vaunted fact-checkers seem to have gone AWOL.
