Yahoo story accusing Florida of cooking COVID death count under scrutiny

A story carried by Yahoo, headlined ’Florida COVID numbers face new scrutiny,’ claiming the state isn’t accurately reporting its death count, has come under scrutiny with critics saying data was cherry-picked in it. The author of the post later acknowledged the findings were not ’universally accepted.’ Some experts suggested the Florida ’gap’ between COVID-19 and excess deaths was about average.

Good, it's about time the media (on every side of the spectrum) is held to the standards that everyone expects. Hopefully this trend continues.

Funny, we all know how skewed the numbers really are. We know ppl died of the flu, heart disease, cancer, etc this last winter, like any other time, yet none were reported, only covid deaths apparently occurred. But FL is skewing numbers they claim....lmao oookay.

So when Trump said, enemy of the people, you know what he meant. Our media is 100% corrupt, all sides, all channels, all outlets. They let politics, ego, money and power drive everything they do.

Just one more example of the "news media's" bias. Really, at this point it isn't just bias. They have become the propaganda arm of the DNC. The quicker American's realize that the news is lying to them to manipulate them the better.

They cannot stand to see us here in Florida doing well unrestricted and unrestrained by government rule that have no scientific basis. We have been thriving for a long time now and every other state needs to take notice and do the same. Political agendas have destroyed jobs, lives and negativity impacted the health of many. Americans must stop allowing this to continue starting now. Stand up to the insanity of your states dictatorship and live free as Americans.

Statistics never lie. Liars use statistics. Fact check for yourself. Don't let fact check sites do itfor you.
