What today's news headlines should be saying, but they're not


It's not even a matter of perspective. Trump's the demented one, not Biden. Biden is working toward eradicating the pandemic by taking the best advice medical science is giving him while Republican governors have gone off the deep end in conspiracy theories and overuse of the term "tyranny" as their state hospitals are overtopped and people have to drive hundreds of miles to find care for serious problems that aren't covid related.

The best "bad journalism" of the day is actually from an MSNBC "opinion columnist" who continues to grasp at straws to criticize the decision to leave Afghanistan and the remarkable airlift that rescued thousands.

Perspective means everything and it can be easily skewed to make something good look like it's not what it appears to be.
