I mean “must see” from the standpoint of pointing and laughing, not that you should actually waste your time watching CNN.
The network is hosting an “expert” panel on the coronavirus pandemic in a town hall format on Thursday. Who’s on the panel? Well, you’ll be less than shocked to learn two of the three people appearing are failed, former Obama officials who presided over disastrous aspects of Obamacare. You may be more surprised, though, that CNN lacks enough shame for the third participant to be none other than Greta Thunberg, the teen climate activist from Sweden.
Yes, this is real life.
Obama’s former CDC director. Obama’s former HHS Secretary who resigned over Obamacare rollout and a teenager.

CNN is actually presenting this as a night for “facts” to be shared, as if these Obama officials and Thunberg don’t have agendas they will be pushing. Besides, what does global warming have to do with the spread of a virus originating in China?
Is there anyone at CNN with any level of self-awareness? Featuring Greta Thunberg on a covid-19 expert panel is just beyond words. I actually cannot believe they are this insane/stupid.

Is it really that unbelievable though? I suspect we’ll get hot takes like this.
"Industrial animal farming has caused most new infectious diseases and risks more pandemics." https://t.co/xGKsujrMYe

No, “industrial animal farming” has not caused most new viruses. Almost ever pandemic in the last 50 years has been caused by sub-standard, non-industrial harvesting of food sources. But calling that out would require Thunberg to speak against China and their wet markets, which would of course be racist. Better to continue to throw stones at the Western world because they won’t push back.
But putting the teenage activist aside, what makes this even more hilarious is that CNN’s resident hall monitor just got done chastizing Fox News for a supposed lack of standards regarding their hard news.

Perhaps we can get Oliver to comment on his own channel putting on three partisan hacks under the guise of a fact-filled, unbiased town hall? I doubt it though. I’d ask him, but he blocked me on Twitter.
CNN is an absolute joke. Not only that, they are incredibly hypocritical. Their crusade against Fox News and the right ignores that they have no standards whatsoever, consistently leading the major news outlets in producing fake news. Just yesterday, for what seems like more times that can be counted at this point, CNN had to delete something to walk back a false narrative they were pushing.
Anyway, I’m sure this town hall will produce some noteworthy clips. We’ll be sure to keep you updated so you don’t have to gouge your eyes out watching it yourself.
