Bill Mahar Speaks Against the Media

(TheRedWire.com) – It wasn’t long ago that one couldn’t turn on either the local or national news without seeing a COVID-19 statistics ticker on the television screen. Day after day, the media pronounced everyone would eventually get sick from COVID, and many would die. HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher had a few words about the media on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

On Wednesday, September 15, the outspoken liberal comedian and commentator let loose on the mainstream media. Maher accused liberal news hosts and journalists of scaring the “s***” out of people. He added the media needs to take responsibility for frightening people so severely they are afraid to leave their homes.

Maher added 41% of Democrats thought hospitalization rates for the infected were over 50%, and 28% believed 20% to 40% of people would be hospitalized if they contracted COVID-19. The commentator said the actual number is 1% to 5%. He said this is important because the media scared people so badly in blue states they won’t leave their homes to attend a touring act such as a comedic stand-up event or a concert. However, he added people are “good to go” in red states. Maher added his stand-up tour is safe and assured potential patrons of a good time.
