Washington state radio station won't air Trump briefings because of 'false or misleading information'

BY J. EDWARD MORENO - 03/25/20 11:42 AM EDT

A public radio station in Washington state, KUOW, will no longer be airing White House press briefings on the coronavirus "due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time."

The president has participated in the briefings with the administration's coronavirus task force almost every day, standing alongside members of his Cabinet and public health officials.

"KUOW is monitoring White House briefings for the latest news on the coronavirus -- and we will continue to share all news relevant to Washington State with our listeners," the station said in a tweet.

"However, we will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time," it added.

According to the Urban Dictionary, a "COVIDIOT" is someone who ignores warnings about COVID-19 -- perhaps promoting that "it's just the flu" and fails to practice social distancing.

7. Thank you!

This is good to hear. I just sent them feedback through their website commending them on this stance and thanking them for their decisions to put American lives in a better position than listening to the atrocities coming out of trump's disturbing little mouth.
