I’ve been asked where I get my COVID news.
I haven’t been watching any news coverage on TV at all and avoid newspapers or websites. I’m with my kid and trying to work, so it’s simply not on to be watching discussions of death counts all day.
Instead, I started a separate Twitter feed where I put only people who have a professional understanding of what is going on. No weeping and wailing, no “human interest” stories, just projections and numbers. About one third of the feed understands viruses, another third is good on statistical modeling, and the last third is good on the economy.
It’s very enlightening. Getting COVID news this way also makes it clear that NYTimes, WashPo, Bloomberg and Co peddle the hoariest propaganda without even trying to conceal it.
