As much as anything else, as you recently agreed to.

Y'know, if we don't talk about partial-farces, the partial-farces will take
over the world, won't they.  It's easy to forget.

Like you said, covid is a real flu, and it was really hyper-responded to.
People influenced our expressions and behavior so the country would respond
to it with more effectiveness than usual, etc etc.

Like you said, the news is full of ridiculous fearmongering etc all the
time; why is it news that it happened now?

Maybe a reminder that everyone will believe it unless we kick our jaded
brains into gear and spread anonymous counter-opinions.

To demonstrate that you're a normal human being!

So you'd agree with my lived experience that the best way to protect
ourselves is to offer trust to those who would threaten us?

        So in short, what you tried to say is that 'associated press' and
> the rest of criminals known as journos are exagerating and outright lying?

I really appreciated them hashing out fake news a little, but I didn't want
the fake news to "win" by having me trusting mainstream news.
