Pence Bars Dr. Fauci From Appearing On CNN Unless Network Airs Entire Daily Briefings: CNN
Vice President Mike Pence’s office has declined to allow the nation’s top health officials from appearing on CNN since the network stopped carrying the daily coronavirus briefings in their entirety, CNN reported on Thursday…
…The vice president’s office, which is responsible for booking those officials to deliver critical information about the coronavirus pandemic killing thousands of Americans, told CNN “it will only allow experts such as Dr. Deborah Birx or Dr. Anthony Fauci to appear on CNN if the network televises the portion of the White House briefings that includes the vice president and other coronavirus task force members.”
“When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air,” a Pence spokesperson told CNN.

Mike Pence Bans Health Officials From Appearing on CNN Because the Network Hurt Trump’s Feelings
It gets better, it really does…
As COVID-19 engulfs the United States, the few members of the federal government whom people actually want to hear from are the health officials who have a clue what they’re talking about. People like Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, etc. Y’know, doctors. Unfortunately, at present, the executive branch is run by Donald Trump, a megalomaniac who loves the sound of his own voice, particularly when it’s spewing misinformation and irrelevant, embarrassing asides about how he used to date models. And if he can’t be heard, apparently no one can.
