A story in three headlines.

Thousands of protesters took part in women’s marches on Saturday, with a main event in Washington, D.C., and sister marches taking place across the country. rganizers had anticipated 116,000 in-person and virtual participants. They said tens of thousands showed up at what turned out to be 438 #CountonUs marches across all 50 states.

Zero mention of pandemics, masks or any risk from large gatherings.

Women's Marches Bring Thousands To Washington, D.C., And Cities Nationwide - NPR

Like ABC News and most media outlets, NPR offers little more than a press release for the march with lots of photos and video.

The Women's March, like Black Lives Matter riots, doesn't spread the virus. But Trump rallies, Chassidic weddings and motorcycle rallies do.

Why? Who knows. It's "science". And by "science", I mean false claims by a deeply dishonest media operation.
