greatgodyoshi: My wife's a scientist. She hates reading the press coverage of science. She'll read the article and then the paper and repeatedly say, "That's not what it says."

That never happens with Fark articles and headlines so I have no concept of what that must be like.

Yeah, in the days of instant media and instant rumors, the pandemic was really good at displaying the tension between getting important information out right away and realizing that critically important information might be flat out wrong. When the public has no patience for uncertainty, leaders have to work twenty times as hard to keep everyone calm while admitting we know nothing.

Another reason why the Toddler-in-Chief's leadership failure is so damn glaring. We may have lost the opportunity for research under Obama, but I think keeping 100k+ people alive is well worth the sacrifice to scientific knowledge.
