Media Blames Coronavirus Spikes On Reopening the Economy, Completely Ignores Mass Left-Wing Protests

Liberal news anchors for ABC and NBC News are blaming the recent coronavirus spikes on President Trump reopening the United States economy while they ignore the massive left-wing protests and riots that are taking place across the country.
The same media who shamed anyone for stepping outside of their house just weeks ago is now encouraging people to get out of their houses and protest in the thousands.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News both highlighted spikes in some of the first states to reopen after the virus shutdown much of America, Media Research Center reported. In addition to some states beginning to slowly reopen, America has seen hundreds of thousands of people spill out onto the streets around the country in protest following the death of George Floyd.
The latter was not the focus as hosts speculated what could be causing coronavirus spikes during segments on the two networks Tuesday, MRC reported.
“Troubling new signs tonight about coronavirus in some areas that reopened early. Hospitalizations are way up. A more serious indicator than the number of cases,” far-left NBC host Lester Holt reported as he completely ignored the far-left protests.
NBC News correspondent Gadi Schwartz also said that “a dramatic rise in coronavirus hospitalizations in some states among the first to reopen.”
Schwartz added that Texas has a “record-breaking number of hospitalizations” and then noted that Georgia hasn't spiked which was one of the first states to reopen. He also added that the new coronavirus numbers don’t “take into consideration what effect large crowds and protests around he country are going to have on the spread of the virus.”
The Daily Caller continues:
Floyd protests are into its third week in some areas of the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) previously announced that symptoms of the novel coronavirus can appear between 5-6 days after exposure.
“The respiratory symptoms of COVID-19 typically appear an average of 5-6 days after exposure to the virus, but may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure,” the CDC reported according to its website.
Schwartz’s Texas talk came after co-host Hoda Kotd mentioned the protests and how they were going on even though businesses were being forced to remain closed, MRC reported.
“For two weeks, protesters have hit the streets to fight for racial equality,” Kotd pointed out. “But at the same time, some businesses, beaches, and churches have remained closed.”
ABC anchor Matt Gutman also blamed the spike in cases on reopening as he mentioned that "21 states" have had a rise in cases and 14 of them had “their highest seven-day average growth since the pandemic began."
“People gathering in large groups again at bars and restaurants,” Gutman said.
