Republican lawmaker introduces resolution to “reprimand” the Associated Press for racism report

Now sure how this party spends all the time in the world defending the 2nd amendment when they never seemed to have read the first.

A Tennessee state legislator introduced a joint resolution to “reprimand” the Associated Press (AP) for publishing an article highlighting racism within the military’s ranks, saying the outlet “engaged in the lowest form of yellow journalism.”

The bill, reported by a CBS/ABC-affiliate, was proposed by Republican state Rep. Bud Hulsey, who objected to an AP story that ran back in May, entitled “Deep-rooted racism, discrimination permeate US military.”

In the article, AP reporters Kat Stafford, James Laporta, Aaron Morrison and Helen Wieffering interviewed “current and former enlistees and officers in nearly every branch of the armed services” who “described a deep-rooted culture of racism and discrimination that stubbornly festers, despite repeated efforts to eradicate it.”

Sean Hannity falsely claims “there’s no need now” to get vaccinated against COVID

I just really can’t wrap my head around how conservatives are literally killing off their own audience with such ridiculous claims.

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): And here’s the thing, alright? So, before we had breakthrough cases, meaning fully vaccinated people getting COVID. Okay, you could make a different argument that unvaccinated people posed a risk, although originally they said if you got the vaccine, you’d never get COVID. So, they’ve gotten — they’ve screwed everything up and gotten everything wrong.

With putting all that aside for a second, you can make the case, okay, they might — they might cause other people to get the virus, blah blah blah blah. That was their argument. But science has changed, and the science now is simple. Vaccinated, boostered, natural immunity — you’re all getting COVID, so there’s no need now.

Yes, there have been plenty of breakthrough cases. But guess what?

CDC: COVID-19 hospitalizations 23 times higher for unvaccinated than boosted

Unvaccinated adults were 23 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 during the omicron wave than adults who were vaccinated and boosted, according to a new study that further highlights the importance of coronavirus vaccination and booster shots.

The study, released Tuesday, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found by far the highest rates of cases and hospitalizations among unvaccinated people, followed by vaccinated but not boosted people, with vaccinated and boosted people having the most protection.
