Conservatives have been jumping all over this new information released by the CDC stating that only 6% of the those listed as COVID-19 deaths are caused ONLY by coronavirus without any other underlying conditions. The problem is that many are not accurately representing what these numbers are actually saying, which hurts our credibility. If we get this wrong, the Left will debunk us, and rightfully so.
The thing is, we have the truth on our side, and this new 6% story is no different! If we accurately represent the figures properly, this actually helps our argument that we shouldn’t have shut down our economy… but if we misrepresent what the numbers mean, then we won’t have a leg to stand on.
If you are running with the false narrative that only 6% of the COVID-19 deaths were ACTUALLY deaths from COVID, you got it wrong. If you are running with the fake news that the 94% of claimed deaths aren’t actually coronavirus deaths, you got that wrong, too.
So how do we present this information in a way that the Left can’t debunk us? By articulating what this information actually means. That’s exactly what is done in this episode of Let’s Talk Right Now.
