PJ Media reports that nearly 30% of new COVID cases are in New York yet the AP reports on new cases in Florida.
PJ Media reports:
Confirmed cases of COVID-19 are on the rise again due to the omicron variant and its high level of transmissibility. On Dec. 26, 189,714 new cases of COVID-19 were reported. Of those, 54,828 came from New York City. This means that 28.9% of new cases reported for Dec. 26 came from the Big Apple.
Over 25% of America’s positive COVID cases are in NYC? I feel like this story would be framed differently if it were Florida. pic.twitter.com/M9LEpWKm7h

But with these numbers, the AP appears to focus on Florida’s new cases.
Florida reported 31,758 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, breaking a record for the most cases in a single day since the start of the pandemic in the U.S. in March 2020, according to data from the CDC. https://t.co/kUd18RJPZs

This appears to be another example of the Mainstream Media focusing on what they want and not necessarily what is the truth.
