ReadYou seem to be deflecting that you accused them of fake news, you used the words under the guise of news.
You bloody Nazi.
They re broadcasted something that they shouldnt have broadcasted? But it wasnt fake news? Riiiiight...Read
I said they used 'the news' to rebroadcast something they should not have broadcast in the first place.
In no way was what they broadcast 'fake news' it was judged to have been an opinion that should not have been voiced.
Correct me if wrong ClausewitlessWhat struck me was the similarity of the wording to what has been said recently. Some might think this may be heading for Trump's Kristallnacht, I couldn't possibly comment.
It's not the federal government that has imposed the curfew.I was just on the phone with someone in Minnesota. This person is quite some ways from Minneapolis and so hasn't seen any rioting directly. However, there is a curfew which extends across much of the state, if not all of it, and some of the major retail chains have shut down completely across the state.
The net effect is a lot more restrictions on life than have been imposed in response to COVID-19. Getting groceries has to be planned in advance more, in order to fit in between work and curfew. This means stocking up on food when it is available as there is no knowing how long this is going to go on for.
This is a sample size of one, but this person (a foreigner there temporarily on essential business, and so with no stake in American politics) got the impression from the long time residents that they are less than impressed with how the federal government are handling the situation and seem to think that Washington are making things worse not better.
I'm not going to make any predictions off this data point, but it's an interesting observation.
That bottom link seems a good deal more factual than the news we get in Germany.This round-up from USA Today gives a picture across the Union:

( For non-residents, its tough finding a single journal that covers the whole country - my memory of reading USA Today whilst Over There is more sports pages than anything else. And if you only see heavyweights - Washington Post, LA Times - from Right and Left coasts inevitably they are partisan to one degree or another.....)
