BEN SHAPIRO (HOST): What do I think is the most overrated media story in US history? Well, I mean, honest to goodness I think it's going to be very, very hard to top Russia media hoax. I mean, I think that one is just a shocking dereliction of duty by the media. I think that they knew better and I think they pushed it anyway and I think it's just garbage. And it's fallen apart completely.
I would say that COVID is the most overrated media story in US history – it did kill, however, an extraordinary number of people. So, you know, we should keep that in mind. The media did botch it, by the way. But I'll say that Russia was not even a thing. And they literally manufactured a giant thing out of nothing. It was a nothing burger.
