How Media Distorts COVID Handling & Arrested for a New Year’s Party | DIRECT MESSAGE | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about the difference in COVID death rates between lockdown-friendly New York and anti-lockdown Florida as well as the mainstream media’s distorted reporting on the performances of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and “trust the science” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Dave also shows footage from anti-lockdown protests in Hyde Park, London, where a man was arrested for hugging strangers. Meanwhile in Portland, Oregon, a riot was declared on New Year’s Eve when Antifa protesters broke windows, set fires, and shot off fireworks at the federal courthouse. Even Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has finally admitted that his efforts to de-escalate with Antifa and anarchists have failed.
