In photo posted to his Twitter account, he was shown not wearing a mask and not social distancing in the crowd of thousands.

    President Donald Trump says his reelection campaign will hold telephone town halls to speak to supporters as the coronavirus pandemic has made holding large, in-person campaign rallies more difficult. Trump held what was described as his "first ever TELE-Rally" on Friday, delivering 23 minutes of stream-of-consciousness remarks on a variety of topics, including his administration's Covid-19 response to criticisms of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. "I wanted to be with you, and this is really replacing our rallies that we all love so much," Trump told supporters dialed into a telephone call, noting that, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, "we're...

    News outlets are falsely reporting that health officials blamed President Trump’s in-person rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma last month for a rise in coronavirus cases. The Associated Press posted a story titled, “Health official: Trump rally ‘likely’ source of virus surge.” The AP cited Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart, who never directly mentioned the Trump rally and said there were “several large events” that may have contributed to the spike in cases. “Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday,” the report said. “Although the health department’s...

    President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa in late June that drew thousands of participants and large protests "likely contributed" to a dramatic surge in new coronavirus cases, Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart said Wednesday. Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday. By comparison, during the week before the June 20 Trump rally, there were 76 cases on Monday and 96 on Tuesday. Although the health department’s policy is to not publicly identify individual settings where people may have contracted the virus, Dart said those...

    A top health official in Tulsa said Wednesday that President Trump's campaign rally in the city in late June, as well as the protests that accompanied it, "more than likely contributed" to a spike in coronavirus cases in the area. "In the past few days, we've seen almost 500 new cases, and we had several large events just over two weeks ago, so I guess we just connect the dots," Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart told reporters on Wednesday. According to the Associated Press, Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, and 206 cases on...

    A Tulsa police sergeant died Tuesday after being shot multiple times during a traffic stop. Sgt. Craig Johnson, 45, came to provide backup assistance to another officer who pulled over David Anthony Ware, 33, for an expired paper license. The suspect would not get out of the vehicle when officers said it would have to be towed, and that's when things escalated. Despite Johnson trying to use nonlethal force—the suspect pulled a gun on him and another officer.

    On Tuesday, 15-year Tulsa Police Department veteran and Sergeant Craig Johnson died at a hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to his head on Monday. Six-week rookie Officer Aurash Zarkeshan was also in critical condition after also being shot in the head during the same struggle with a suspect. Though Monday's CBS Evening News was the only broadcast newscast to report on their hospitalization, neither they nor ABC, or NBC informed their viewers about Sgt. Johnson’s passing. Proving that the shooting warranted national attention, CBS fill-in anchor Major Garrett delivered a meager 16-second news brief on Monday: Two Tulsa, Oklahoma,...

    Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos, has temporarily banned President Trump’s account for “hateful conduct” stemming from footage of the president’s speeches. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson told Fox News. A rebroadcast of Trump’s 2015 campaign launch -- when he famously criticized people crossing the Mexican border to illegally enter the United States -- and comments Trump made at his recent Tulsa rally...

    While I rarely use the term “fake news” in my writing, it really does exist. And once it circulates online, it becomes canonized, fixed in the popular mind of the day as if irrefutable truth. Yet it’s becoming more and more difficult to separate truth from fiction when following the news.You’ll read a juicy headline, promising some bombshell information, only to read the article and say, “That’s it?”You’ll see the sensational title of a video only to watch the video and ask, “Where was the shock and awe?”You’ll see a chyron running across the screen, but it doesn’t match the...

    Broadcasters continue to find new ways to compromise meaningful coverage of President Trump and his reelection campaign. “Will CNN and MSNBC cover Donald Trump’s 2020 rallies in a way that allows the president to simply state his message to the American people? Or will they attempt to hide and censor him?” asked Scott Whitlock, associate editor of Newsbusters.org, a conservative press watchdog. "If Saturday’s Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma is any indicator, it seems likely the liberal outlets will choose the latter,” Mr. Whitlock wrote. “While Fox News played all 101 minutes — or 100% — of Trump’s campaign kickoff,...
