CNN will think twice the next time it tries to pick a fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Like Joe Biden, CNN learned that DeSantis knows how to fight back.
And that’s because Ron DeSantis just destroyed CNN with one smoking gun document.
Left-wing CNN anchor Kate Bolduan interviewed Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried about COVID in Florida.
New York Times data shows Florida has the fifth lowest rate of COVID infections per 100,000 residents and the corporate media needed a new angle to attack DeSantis.
Bolduan invited on Fried – who is running for the Democrat nomination for Florida Governor in 2022 to take on DeSantis – to spread conspiracy theories about DeSantis hiding COVID data and ignore science to demand schools force children to wear masks all day.
DeSantis is not hiding any data and per countries in Europe they do not require children to wear masks because the harm they impose on children’s social development outweigh whatever minor benefit may accrue from children wearing masks.
Bolduan then falsely claimed CNN contacted DeSantis’ office for comment and DeSantis never responded.
This is an old corporate media trick to claim a Republican did not offer comment to make them look either like cowards too afraid to respond or that the Republican in question knew they had no answer to the question and knew they were beaten.
But Ron DeSantis is leading polls for the GOP nomination for president in 2024 because he knows how to fight back against corporate media hacks.
DeSantis spokeswoman Christina Pushaw slammed Fried for her false claims and noted that Bolduan did not tell the truth.
Pushaw wrote that CNN contacted DeSantis’ old spokesman who no longer worked in that position.
“This morning, @NikkiFried went on CNN to demand forced-masking and falsely accuse @GovRonDeSantis of ‘hiding data.’ @KateBolduan asserted ‘CNN contacted the governor’s office with no response.’ In fact, CNN contacted the FORMER comms person who moved to a new agency 5 months ago,” Pushaw wrote on social media.
Pushaw came with receipts showing that CNN emailed the administration’s general inbox a detailed list of questions with less than an hour to respond – another media trick where they do this on purpose to claim Republicans never respond to their inquiries.
“At 9:22 AM, CNN wrote to our general media inbox, expecting an immediate response (less than an hour) to detailed allegations that require specific data to refute,” Pushaw added. “We sent a response and look forward to @KateBolduan correcting the record!”
The corporate media reveled in the seasonal delta surge this summer because Ron DeSantis keeping Florida’s economy and schools open without crashing the healthcare system worked.
DeSantis rejected the Fauci/Biden totalitarian regime of mask and vaccine mandates and lockdowns proving that life can go on as normal during the pandemic.
Now coronavirus cases have drastically dropped without mandatory vaccinations or masks.
The corporate media does not want Americans to know that Joe Biden’s biomedical security state is unnecessary so they invited Nikki Fried on to fabricate a new anti-DeSantis narrative.
But DeSantis and his administration knew how to fight back against CNN and corporate media lies.
