CDC Reverses Course On Covid Testing For Asymptomatic People | NBC Nightly News After facing criticism, the CDC has changed its guidance again on testing: asymptomatic people who have come in contact with Covid-19 should get tested.

Trump has systematically attacked the media, calling them fake news. But what we really have is fake government information.

More now than even a few weeks ago, there is every reason not to trust ANYTHING Trump appointees and their agencies say or claim.

A few weeks ago I wrote this article:

Do You Believe The Numbers and Claims? There is good reason NOT to believe any of the numbers that come out of a government agency with a Trump appointee.

Yesterday, the CDC removed an advisory about how Covid 19 spreads. A day or two before that they reversed a policy of not testing non-symptomatic people who had been exposed to Covid-19 because it came to light that the policy was inserted without the approval of the CDC scientists.

As I write this, there's coverage of the situation with TIk Tok, which Oracle and Walmart are supposed to be taking over. Kara Swisher describes how the deal is bogus, how the two US companies only have about 20% of TikTok and don't appear to have control of the code or algorithms, leaving China with full access to the data. The coverage suggests that this does zero to prevent Chinese access but it does help Trump's people.

There is no comparison to past lies, mendacity and deceptions. Trump has created a "psychopathocracy" which is built upon lies, deception, predation and exploitation. Anyone who compares Trump's government to past US governments, except, perhaps Andrew Jacksons (he encouraged mass murder of and theft from Native Americans,) is really not seeing how bad things are.

The recent CDC events make it clear that no part of the Trump government can be trusted.

It's true that in the past presidents and agencies have lied to us. But the scale of lying, deception and outright false information excreted by Trump's agencies and people is far worse than anything ever before seen.

So, given this truth what must be done.

1-question every statistic, every claim. Require supporting evidence and data.

2-demand that the media do the same. Demand the political opposition do the same.

3- Look for nefarious reasons and motivations for the information reported.

4- Don't base life decisions on their lies.
