Sensationalism and misinformation is the only thing left that drives USA Today. You can’t read a single article on here without being bombarded with hyperbolic crap to describe the latest numbers. And oh yeah... that 17 year old boy you reported about in the article. The one meant to drive fear that young people are dying too, and nobody is safe. He had leukemia. A “minor” detail completely left out of the article because it wouldn’t help perpetuate the fear that USA Today is trying to spread. Keep it classy guys. You’re officially the new age national enquirer.

Why didn’t the city cancel the event, especially when this virus was starting to spread to the US?

That same mood of uncaring and too much partying is why NOLA has been in toilet well before the massive effect from Hurricane Katrina hit.

So a bunch of people in New Orleans have the common damn cold. That’s kinda what happens when you imbibe copious amounts of alcohol and don’t sleep much

Remember when you asinine trump supporters donated over $20 million dollars for a stupid wall. Well now would be a great time to do it again to actually help america out. Healthcare personnel nationwide is in desperate need of supplies to fight this "democratic hoax". Since your president doesn't seem to give a damn maybe you all can make a difference.
