Coronavirus: Class, not Disease: The Upper Class is Woke, the Lower Class is Diseased

To return to a theme: the management of coronavirus has fallen into a predictable pattern. It is now about what class you are in, not about communicable viruses. So rules about masking and social distancing are meant to apply to the lower, dirtier, class, while the immaculate and beautiful class doesn't need it.

Think I'm kidding? Check this out.

The mayor's order makes exceptions from the strict new rules for many city and federal government workers, stipulating: "The enforcement provisions of this Order shall not be applied to persons in the judicial or legislative branches of the District government while those persons are on duty; and shall not apply to any employees of the federal government while they are on duty."

Steve Krakauer, former producer for CNN, puts it this way:

This story - the initial column, the corrections, the author's cavalier dismissal of the major errors - is a microcosm for the problems in the media today. The story was glaringly wrong, but it was arguing a point of view that is seen in the media bubble as "acceptable." If she was arguing something like, say, Tom Cotton's op-ed in the New York Times, any slight grammatical error would mean the firing of the editor of the section. Being acceptable and wrong is often more preferable in the media than being unacceptable and right. Because the cost of being unacceptably right outweighs the cost of being acceptably wrong. Great work by The Federalist to do the journalism it takes of letting truth win out.
