Last week, to no one's surprise, CNN posted another fake news article.
This time it was about Tesla CEO Elon Musk in which they claimed that he failed to deliver on his promise of 1255 FDA-approved ventilators from China after telling New York he bought them and would donate them.
CNN obviously doesn't do any research at all into this to see if it was true or not. Their standard is to shoot first and ask questions later.
Three weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he had obtained more than 1,000 ventilators to help California hospitals treating patients infected with the coronavirus, the governor’s office says none of the promised ventilators have been received by hospitals

This is what CNN wrote in their hit-piece:
At a March 23 news conference, Newsom said the devices, which can provide life-saving support to patients infected with the virus, had already arrived in Los Angeles and were on their way to hospitals in need.
"I told you a few days ago that he was likely to have 1,000 ventilators this week," Newsom said. "They've arrived in Los Angeles, and Elon Musk is already working with hospital association and others to get those ventilators out. It’s a heroic effort."
Shortly after the dramatic announcement, Musk said in a tweet: “China had an oversupply, so we bought 1255 FDA-approved ResMed, Philips & Medtronic ventilators on Friday night & airshipped them to LA. If you want a free ventilator installed, please let us know!”
But despite the claims, none of the ventilators promised by Musk have been delivered to hospitals, according to the governor's office.
“Elon Musk and his team told the state that he had procured ventilators and wanted to distribute them directly to hospitals with shortages. The Administration is communicating every day with hospitals across the state about their ventilator supply and to date we have not heard of any hospital system that has received a ventilator directly from Tesla or Musk.”
Musk fired back hard on Twitter with, "What I find most surprising is that CNN still exists"
Musk then shared screenshots on Twitter with proof that he has delivered ventilators to a large number of hospitals and even included a list of where almost every one of them ended up.

Try as hard as he may, Obama may convince some that he's a Christian, but when he slams Jesus and mocks the bible, that sure does make a case for the opposite.
A video of the former president went viral though it was a bit of a struggle. What I mean is that the video is constantly being taken down just as fast as it's shared.

If Your Kids are on TikTok, You May Want to Hear This
TikTok is an addicting app where people post short video clips that can either tell a story, be a dance, comedic, sad, etc. It seems to be a spin off of the popular app "Vine" that went away a few years ago.
I am guilty of having the app to watch the videos posted by others, but I deleted it a while back because it wasted too much time. However, the more I learn about the insidiousness of it, the happier I am that I no longer use it!
