To Shield Themselves From Humiliation, Dems Want To Stop Telecasting Daily Briefings, Claiming Trump Always Lies

Trump tweeted about the "ratings" his press conferences are getting -- as if people are tuning in as adoring fans instead of people scared for their lives.

Hey there. It's Jon Favreau, co-host of Pod Save America and former Obama speechwriter.
Sorry to invade your inbox, but I have a pretty important ask.
Donald Trump is lying on television again -- but this time, we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, where his lies could literally kill people.
Trump’s daily briefings are carried live by every network, which means that millions of Americans are receiving misinformation about a public health crisis that’s unfiltered and mostly unchallenged.
It has to stop. Cover the news. Cover the facts. But there is zero reason to give the President a free campaign commercial every day where he's free to spread lies that put people’s lives at risk.
In typical Trump fashion, he’s using this crisis to boost his poll numbers.
Yesterday, the President tweeted about the “ratings” his press conferences are getting on the same day that we learned more than 2,000 Americans have already died from the coronavirus.
Trump only cares about Trump. He thinks that higher television ratings lead to higher approval ratings, and so far, he’s right.
Thousands of PCCC members like you have already signed the petition calling on networks to stop live coverage of Trump's lies. The pressure is growing. MSNBC's Chris Hayes refused to play audio of Trump's briefing calling it a "genuine threat to public health." NPR Seattle says it will not air the briefings at all.
While this is a start, all the major networks need to get on board. Lives are at stake. Donald Trump should not be allowed to spread his dangerous lies when lives are at stake.
Thanks for being in this fight.
-- Jon
