Beyond Parody: CNN Taps Greta Thunberg for Expert Coronavirus Panel

Trust only Fauci...and Greta Thunberg

Bill Gates wasn’t available??

The brave, hard-hitting journalists over at CNN are hosting a town hall Thursday evening called Coronavirus: Facts and Fears. Our First Amendment warriors are only bringing viewers the best of experts, such as former CDC Director Richard Besser, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and … teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.

You literally cannot make this stuff up. This would be a masterful parody. It could have been one of the Babylon Bee’s finest works. Yet no, this is actually the reality of CNN in 2020.

There are almost no words for how ridiculous this is. Anchor Chris Cuomo has touted CNN as the “facts first” network. Reliable Sources (ironic) host Brian Stelter regularly tut-tuts Fox News (sometimes justifiably) for having unqualified guests speaking on expert subjects. But at least they don’t tell their viewers to take their coronavirus wisdom from 17-year-old, troubled teenagers.

The same liberal journalists who have scolded people for so much as questioning the wisdom of the federal government’s top coronavirus experts, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, are now literally telling people to get their scientific analysis from Greta Thunberg.

To be clear, you shouldn’t hold contempt for Thunberg — you should feel bad for her. She is a deeply troubled young woman with a long history of struggles with depression, OCD, eating disorders, bullying, and more. Sadly, she has latched onto an alarmist, unscientific doomsday tale of a pending climate apocalypse as a way of coping. There’s nothing horribly wrong with this; Thunberg is a young woman of admirable passion and should pursue her beliefs. What’s disturbing is to see liberal journalists exploit such a young, ill-informed activist to push their political agenda even to her detriment.

Frankly, it’s ridiculous that liberal journalists include Thunberg in their climate change coverage, and she has a history of misstatements and offers no expertise of any kind. But at least that is actually her area of focus, one could say. The idea that Thunberg is going to be made a star of CNN’s coronavirus coverage … just boggles the mind. The activist’s climate change views are ill-informed already, but no doubt she knows even less about infectious disease, economics, and public health.

This isn’t what you’re supposed to get from CNN, supposedly the “facts first” network. This is the kind of thing you’re supposed to read in the Onion. But increasingly, it’s hard to tell the two apart.

    “Anti-empire”, but attacking a little girl like a common GOP fascist?

    It’s a little suspicious… if one doesn’t follow the money, at any rate…

    “Russia is the main EU supplier of crude oil, natural gas and solid fossil fuels”

      So CB, you would listen to an under educated child for a possible cancer prognosis? Face it, this whole thing is a joke. a big joke , a really, really big joke. The young girl is being manipulated, but for the most part is has backfired, as it has been seen for what it is, a cheap marketing scheme in which anybody that has sense enough to call it out is cast as a heartless villain since the messenger happens to be a homely teenage girl with some problems. The poor girl is being used, plain and simple, but the joke is a reality.

    I am a better expert on viruses than Thorny Gritta is. My plecostomus catfish is a better expert on viruses than Thorny Gritta is.

    You can get the psychology behind calling her though. It’s the same thing as Killary Clinton’s 2008 presidential nomination run against Barack Hussein Obama, where she told the young that “it’s cool to have a woman president.’

    We NEED ENTERTAINMENT don’t we?!?

    This is a smart move… They are going for joining OPERATION COVID and OPERATION MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE! Nice move.

    As for Greta!

    Thunberg said earlier this year that she had recovered from what she believed were mild coronavirus symptoms, which she was able to self-diagnose as a result of her decades-long track record in the field of virology and microbiology.

    This is achievable when you start to…

      Her parents are laughing all the way to the bank. I’m so sick of fraudulent clowns like this I’d kiss Robespierre’s a** for a guillotine.
