But wait.  There are no consequences of significance when a news outlet either falsely reports a story, or just plain does a poor job with sourcing.

Not true. The Welt story was wrong. But Business Insider, Reuters and others went with it anyway despite not having their own sources. Now everyone is back peddling.

Just another day where #fakenews never ends.  You folks should be smarter by now and not fall for explosive tripe like this.  But you're not.   Why is that, exactly?  Maybe you like clicking on  those groovy phishing emails too.

When you prefer to listen to ("free market") behavioral economists over epidemiologists...
I’m an epidemiologist. When I heard about Britain’s ‘herd immunity’ coronavirus plan, I thought it was satire

Indeed.  The cunnundrum is that to affect change requires power and power is ultimately undefeated in regards to corruptibility in human hands. I have become convinced that all true progress will only be achieved through an inward spiritual revolution from the ground up and outside of the realm of politics and government altogether.   However this requires a level of unity that is well beyond our species capability. So vatta u gonna do?

I actually think the US will come out of this pandemic thing ok, or at least not as bad as someone might think given your dismal healthcare for the lower income people. One strength of the US system is that you have more ICU beds per capita than any other country.

That's quite likely the issue. Some routes are getting pretty congested as people shift to working & playing from home. The NA <> Asia routes are quite likely particularly hard hit.

Shit is getting real when sheltering in place starts to affect RP.

Stay safe in there.

As misinformation spreads, 'snake oil salesmen' are profiting off anxiety over coronavirus, says reporter

Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day
What I can clearly say is that what we do, or don’t do, over the next week will have a massive impact on the local and perhaps national trajectory of coronavirus. We are only about 11 days behind Italy and generally on track to repeat what is unfortunately happening there and throughout much of the rest of Europe very soon.

hobbitt's employer shared the hurt several times over the years, keeping the talent employed but on lower wages. The lower paid employees had the smallest hurt, and corporate officers were on minimum wage. It got the company through several tough times.

You have a nice gig there. Sounds very social. Ish.
 
Talent, this is the operative word.  If our department were not so essential this would not be happening.   The less talented and important to the company will not be so fortunate just as the rest of the business world.  I know I am blessed, I also know that I am good at what I do and others that are not will not fare so well.  It is called capitalism.
