    Can't make this up. It's crazy world! This is going to be a dog and pony show. I can't stand Sanjay Gupta's lecturing on social crap.

    CNN’s expert panel for a Thursday town hall on the novel coronavirus features two doctors, a former Health and Human Services secretary, and a teenage climate activist who has yet to graduate from high school.

    CNN announced Wednesday that its Global Town Hall, “Coronavirus: Facts and Fears,” would feature Greta Thunberg, the 17-year-old Swede known for her global-warming protests, not her medical expertise.

    The other three panelists are CNN contributor Dr. Sanjay Gupta; Dr. Richard Besser, former acting director of the Centers for Disease Control, and Obama-era Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

    The network was promptly on Twitter roasted for its choice of Ms. Thunberg for the event hosted by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.

    “CNN Virus Townhall Features Greta Thunberg for Some Reason,” tweeted the conservative news outlet PJMedia.

    What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall?” tweeted journalist Yashar Ali.

    Replied actor Daniel Newman: “She brings in viewers.”

    Wait a second... the libs are wailing about 'FOLLOW THE SCIENCE' and they throw up some whiny assed Swedish teenager as a source?? For what!?

    "She brings in viewers." Yeah, just like the Giant Man Eating Rats of Borneo they charge you a buck to see at the State Fair. She's a sideshow.

    (They're Nutria BTW.)

    She is fair game as a public figure. If she wanted to be left alone she should have stayed at home.

    Maybe Ms. Thunberg is there to illustrate a potential silver lining with global warming: heat and sunlight naturally kill the Coronavirus. Once corona has been wiped out we can go back to saving the planet.

    She is mentally 'challenged' and being exploited. Say's a lot for her parents.

    Double fail. While the winter was unusually warm, the spring has been exceptionally cool. Heck, it's mid-way through May and only today has it felt like spring around here. Over the past 2 months, it's been the norm for the weather guy/gal to use words like, "x Degrees cooler than average today."

    Peace favor your sword,

    We have been 4-5 years now with no 100* weather here. I wonder if they are programming the atmosphere for massive crop failure? I haven't noticed the tic-tac-toe skies lately.

    Bull crap. Despite the media BS, we’re so far ahead of this it’s pitiful that our economy is getting slammed for nothing; and THAT is the fault of the media. They forced politicians to do stupid things to avoid betting a gang land beat down by the idiocracy you seem to be a part of.

    And that would include Trump who is going to get a beating from it anyway this turns out.

    I mean, it's CNN. We all know their agenda. What did you expect, fair and balanced reporting?
