posted by Hannity Staff - 3.20.20

President Trump called-out a single reporter during his daily Coronavirus press briefing Friday; saying the journalist was promoting “sensationalism” at a time when the American people are “looking for answers and hope.”

“Nearly 200 dead, 14,000 who are sick, millions who are scared right now. What do you say to Americans who are watching right now who are scared,” asked one reporter.

“I’d say that you’re a terrible reporter. I think it’s a very nasty question and I think it’s a very bad signal that you’re putting out to the American people. The American people are looking for answers and they’re looking for hope. You’re doing sensationalism,” said the President. “That’s really bad reporting, you ought to get back to reporting instead of sensationalism.”

“Those measures include deploying National Guard troops to a Health Department command post and setting up a satellite testing facility and one-mile containment area in the city. To date, Westchester County has seen 108 confirmed COVID-19 cases; that’s 58 percent of all tri-state cases,” reports NBC New York.

“New Rochelle is home to the midtown Manhattan lawyer who has been linked to dozens of cases across multiple states. He was the second confirmed case in the state and its first instance of community spread,” adds NBC.
