How Fox News and Trump are spinning lethality of Covid-19


CNN's Brianna Keilar discusses how President Trump and Fox News are dangerously spinning the lethality of Covid-19 and selling Trump's coronavirus infection as "the sacrifice of a true leader."

On Tuesday's debate, Joe Biden slammed President Trump over his efforts on COVID-19. In turn, President Trump slammed Joe Biden on the size of his crowds at rallies.
The stock market dropped after President Trump announced that he is calling off all Covid-19 relief talks until after the 2020 presidential election. NBC News Stephanie Ruhle explains how this affects industries that are suffering.
We are now learning, through a blog post by first lady Melania Trump, that 14-year-old Barron Trump tested positive for COVID-19, though his mother says he showed no symptoms. Despite testing positive for the coronavirus herself, Melania Trump says her son, Barron, was her first concern when COVID-19 began sweeping the White House. But how did Barron get exposed in the first place? Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump is blaming the president and first lady for exposing her cousin to the virus.
CNN's Brian Stelter reports how Fox News is covering journalist Bob Woodward's audio recordings of President Donald Trump calling coronavirus "deadly" and saying he downplays it to avoid a panic.
