A Non-Story That’s Now a Story

The Guardian (formerly the Manchester Guardian) is a very good newspaper, even for American news. But even they sometimes make a mountain out of nonsense.

This was the top headline on their live Coronavirus blog a few minutes ago:

New York Sees Anti-Lockdown Rally as T—- Supports Michigan Protesters

The story says:

Anti-stay-at-home protesters have gathered in front of New Yorkโ€™s state capitol,ย where governorย Andrew Cuomoย just wrapped up his daily briefing on the stateโ€™s coronavirus response.

Then you see a picture of the demonstration:

We had that many people show up for a pro-impeachment rally in our New Jersey town (population 22,000) on a cold, rainy night in January.

Some stories don’t deserve to be stories.
