The liberal rag known as the Texas Tribune has had to retract a story they did on COVID-19 once they were caught in an outrageous lie. Democrats have been trying to demonize Texas and Florida in an effort to cover up the truly horrendous job they have done with COVID-19 and are jealous of the success those two states have had by doing the opposite as the blue states have done.
The Tribune made the claim that 5,800 children were hospitalized for the virus in just one week. But sometimes, the Big Lie just doesn’t work and they had to correct the article. 5,800 children were hospitalized, but since the beginning of the pandemic, well over a year ago. The first case of COVID was spotted on January 21, 2020. That was about 78 weeks ago.
The Texas Tribune said Texas had 5,800 children hospitalized in just one week. The actual average per week is just 74. I don’t care who you are, that is a huge difference. The truth is that during one three-week period, more children were hospitalized for the vaccination than from the actual disease.

The correction, applied to an article titled “Texas children and children’s hospitals are under siege from two viruses: RSV and COVID-19,” read:
An earlier version of this story overstated the number of children who have been hospitalized in Texas recently with COVID-19. The story said over 5,800 children had been hospitalized during a seven-day period in August, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That number correctly referred to children hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began. In actuality, 783 children were admitted to Texas hospitals with COVID-19 between July 1 and Aug. 9 of this year.
Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin shared the article along with a tweet that appeared to blame the pro-life movement for the rising number of cases — and call it “a death cult.”

Rubin calls herself a conservative, but like most of her articles, this too is a lie. She only claims to be a conservative for the same reason Lizzie Warren claimed to be an Indian. To get a good-paying gig even if you have to lie about who you are. But Rubin should have checked her facts before commenting, but no liberal ever checks their facts.
