It’s all so embarrassing:
There could have been many more examples shown.
The media is desperate to ramp up the Chinese bat flu hysteria (for click/views= advertising $$$$ and to make themselves relevant again). One of the victims of this, the deadliest day, was someone in his 40’s, which was seized on because repeatedly having to report on the usual “man in his eighties or “woman in her nineties” is going to cause some cognitive dissonance in even the most brain dead journalist’s head.
What catchy phrase are they going to use when there’s a new record day? Whatever it is you can be sure they’ll all be in lockstep on it.
