Ending live daily coverage of Trump’s COVID-19 briefings

Contact Campaign Creator
Campaign created by
Julie Rochman

Please stop covering the President’s daily live campaign rally (thinly disguised as a coronavirus “news conference”). There is no need to do so. News organizations can monitor the briefings in real time and have your anchors and correspondents quickly share appropriately edited valuable, accurate parts, which will come from medical experts. That will leave the President’s insults, false braggadocio, and outright lies on the editing room floor, where they belong.

Why is this important?

President Trump is blatantly using the news organizations’ extensive, live coverage to freely campaign for a second term. It is wrong and dangerous to provide so much unfettered airtime to someone who is happily, shamelessly spreading terrible, damaging misinformation that is already costing fellow Americans their lives.

Please tell national and local media outlets to monitor and then broadcast valid, accurate information from medical experts, rather than feelings and diatribes from the President that only serve his own electoral interests.

Reasons for signing

  • Propaganda, hate, ignorance is not helping this country. Stop giving him a platform.
  • Don't want to hear from someone who is not responsible in his own words.
  • The public does not need to know more irrelevant, irresponsible information as this does not reflect American values. The media can confuse fellow Americans with Donald Trump's briefings. People will listen to whomever steps up to the microphone if portrayed logically.
