DV #83: Can We Trust COVID Tests?

The New York Times has a new article that is raising questions about the accuracy and effectiveness of COVID testing.  Many are wondering if tests might be too sensitive and are leading to positive test results for people who have insignificant amounts of the virus and are likely not even contagious.  We go over what that might mean and how the New York Times is (as always) burying the lede. 

And there’s no shortage of hypocrisy from pro-lockdown politicians!  We bring you two stories of politicians in the northeast who are defying their own COVID rules. 

Also on today’s episode – we visit some more shameless angling from the New York Times who is trying to pin every COVID death on Trump with every word they write.  We breakdown the latest maddening article.
