Buck Sexton, the host of “The Buck Sexton Show,” said Friday that the barrage of reports on coronavirus infections and claims that President Trump is trying to subvert and election is the media’s attempt to keep you afraid and watching.
Democrat state leaders, health officials and their allies in the media have been selling the dangers of the coronavirus since the outbreak began earlier this year. Their collusion makes sense. Democrat governors have been able to achieve more power than they could have ever imagined, and the headline, “Coronavirus Cases Surge..You Could Be Next!” must sell newspapers.
“They do so because it allows them to monetize your fear every time there’s a new story with some other thing could be terrible about COVID-19,” Sexton said. He continued, “The biggest news organizations in the country, in the world do this on a regular basis, so they’re making money off your fear. There controlling you through your fear, and they’re also mobilizing their own side by creating false fear.”
The U.S. saw more than 187,000 new cases on Thursday and recorded 2,015 deaths. The disease is clearly dangerous and on the move, but these deaths are occurring in cities and states that have already been implementing strict guidelines and mask mandates. Sexton has said people need to be smart about the risks, but the tendency of the media to try and scare the public is getting old.
“People need to stop trying to terrify everybody and that’s the real threat as I see it,” Sexton said. “Because when you’re completely unnerved, when you’re operating under this cloud of constant anxiety, which the media and the Democrats and the anti-Trumpers are just feeding on right now.”
Sexton said these politicians want the public scared and see them as a source of calm under pressure. These are the same politicians and journalists running around trying to scare the public into believing Trump is attempting a bloodless coup.
“I do believe there are people in the media, perhaps many of them, who really think that Trump is a threat to our democracy, who really think that trump is a threat to our democracy, who really believe that by taking this to court and having lawyers present judges with affidavits and other evidence and look at the numbers and ask for recounts that this is, you know, exactly what Stalin would have done,” Sexton said.
