Trump Says States Are Lying About How Many Ventilators They Need to Fight Coronavirus

President Donald Trump won’t give every state the ventilators they’ve asked for because in some cases, “they don’t need that many,” he said on Saturday.

States that have been hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic have stressed their need for the mechanical ventilators that allow critically ill patients to keep breathing.

Do you know what day it is?

Wearing a coronavirus face mask isn't about you

Dr. Fauci has spoken.

It might seem pretty dystopian that top U.S. infectious disease experts now recommend Americans wear cloth masks outside, particularly in places like markets. But there's a good reason why. 

As the coronavirus spreads rapidly around the nation, a significant number of infected people may never show any symptoms (perhaps as high as one in four people). What's more, it takes an average of five days after infection for symptoms to develop in those that do eventually have...

Original Content podcast: ‘The Platform’ offers a gruesome metaphor for capitalism

“The Platform” is not a subtle movie.

That’s true of its approach to horror, with intense, bloody scenes that prompted plenty of screaming and pausing from your hosts at the Original Content podcast. It’s also true of its thematic material — right around the time one of the characters accuses another of being communist, you’ll slap yourself on the forehead and say, “Oh, it’s about capitalism.”
