STEVE HILTON (HOST): All right, Lisa, I just want to start with you. I want to pick up on one of the points that I made at the beginning which was about this groupthink that feels really solidly in place now, which you hear all over the place, which is the only way we can reopen is widespread testing, isolating, contact tracing. What do you make of all of that?
LISA BOOTHE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, I think as you laid out, the biggest barrier we have to reopening is the media. They're the ones that are driving hysteria around the coronavirus. We've even seen sort of an omission or a downplaying about positive data points, positive information that could potentially lead to the reopening.
We've also seen zero interest in the media for questioning if -- are these policies even the right ones we should be making? Should we be shutting down right now? What are the consequences of that? Has it led to a positive effect or not? Where will we be if we didn't shut down? They're not raising these kinds of critical questions which I find troubling.
Further, we've also seen just a distortion of the facts. I mean, you look at what they've done to President Trump, blaming him for a guy taking fish tank cleaner? And somehow he's responsible for his death for, you know, saying the positive things or at least being hopeful about hydroxychloroquine.
And we've even seen a tremendous amount of bias going after Governor Kemp for reopening Georgia's economy while ignoring the fact that Governor Polis, a liberal Democrat in Colorado is opening retail May 1st.
So, the media is a big obstacle in trying to reopen the economy and get the actual truth out there to the American people.
