Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 01, 2020

Of the flood of misinformation, conspiracy theories and falsehoods seeding the internet on the coronavirus, one common thread stands out: President Trump. That is the conclusion of researchers at Cornell University who analyzed 38 million articles about the pandemic in English-language media around the world.

I don't know anyone in the world other than Trumpy who has ever been accused of over 20,000 lies in 4 years which apparently resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans and the prolonged suffering of millions of more.

Pick a topic, any topic that Pres Trump has talked about frequently.

It would not surprise me if Pres Trump were the major source of misinformation on any topic you pick.

He does not deal in a factual reality.

He seems to deal in some fantasy world that is a product of his imagination.

Wisconsin governor calls on Trump to consider canceling rallies amid Covid surge
www.theguardian.com

...The governor of Wisconsin has called on Donald Trump to consider canceling a pair of campaign rallies scheduled for Saturday as the key swing state struggles to control a 22% surge in coronavirus cases over the last week.

The increasing infections in Wisconsin are part of a national trend of rising cases playing out as the presidential election enters the homestretch and the president, trailing badly in the polls, accelerates his search for votes.

That search will take Trump to airport hangars in the Wisconsin cities of Green Bay and La Crosse on Saturday, where thousands of people, many unlikely to be wearing masks based on recent rallies, are expected to huddle in open-air crowds to hear Trump speak. Barring a surprise victory elsewhere, Trump needs to win Wisconsin to win re-election.

The campaign plan took shape as a major new study by researchers at Cornell University suggested that Trump is the world's largest source of misinformation about Covid-19. The findings were based on a comprehensive survey of 38m articles from traditional and online media.

While incidents of coronavirus transmission in open-air environments have not been documented as thoroughly as viral spreading in indoor settings, Wisconsin's governor, Tony Evers, a Democrat, suggested it was reckless for the president to draw thousands of people together in a "red zone" for transmission.

"The president could do two things: one is maybe not come to these two municipalities and cities that are ranked right up towards the top of all the places in the country [for infections]," Evers said....



On the plus side, it is an outdoor rally.

Will social distancing and crowd size controls be enforced?

Covid-19 Surge That's Pounding Wisconsin Began With College Kids
www.bloomberg.com

...The Covid-19 surge sweeping Wisconsin started among people from 18 to 24 just as college opened for the academic year. Now, it's reaching every corner of the population.

The state, where President Donald Trump has been planning campaign rallies Saturday, now finds itself with one of the highest per-capita case rates in the U.S. Experts say the return to college was among a dangerous confluence of factors that contributed.

Indeed, the state's data show that cases spiked first among the college-aged population; other age groups followed days and weeks later....

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you are always afraid...

Abstract
Current theories argue that hyper-sensitization of social threat perception is central to paranoia.

Affected people often also report misperceptions of group cohesion (conspiracy) but little is known about the cognitive mechanisms underpinning this conspiracy thinking in live interactions.

In a pre-registered experimental study, we used a large-scale game theory approach (N > 1,000) to test whether the social cohesion of an opposing group affects paranoid attributions in a mixed online and lab-based sample.

I stopped voting thirty years ago. There's too many dumb people who believe government officials are selfless caretakers of public well-being.

All that proves is that the movement started long before Trump. It was Trump who dropped out of the Paris Agreement.
It was a big setback that called for another line of attack.

In a world population of eight billion, you can reasonably expect millions of people to die regularly for a host of reasons.

You are assuming our immune systems are of equal susceptibility to disease.

The logic of health couldn't be more simple. Take care of your body and you won't get sick. Your body tells you when you do it right and when you do it wrong.

The more people a conspiracy involves, the dumber you have to be to believe in it.

A worldwide corona conspiracy would involve the most people ever involved in a conspiracy, therefore you're the dumbest person ever for believing in it.
