“It was an editing mistake. We took immediate steps to remove it from all platforms and shows,” a CBS News spokesperson told Fox News.

Last Wednesday, “CBS This Morning” included a brief clip showing several patients and medical professionals in one room during a report about the rising threat of the coronavirus outbreak in New York City.

However, that same footage aired days prior on Sky News.

“This is the main hospital in Bergamo, in Lombardy province. It’s one of the most advanced hospitals in Europe,” Sky News reported.

With Europe’s oldest population, COVID-19 has hit Italy particularly hard. The mortality rate of confirmed cases is over 8.5 percent.

The White House coronavirus task force is projecting between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths in the United States from the virus. Last night, President Trump warned of a “painful” two weeks ahead.

However, the models used by the White House estimated that without temporary lockdowns, the death toll in the U.S. would ultimately be between 1.5 to 2.2 million.

CBS should use the letters POS ( Piece of Sh*t )
News agency. They knew what they were doing, & the feeble excuse is a bunch of BS.
Don’t they have anybody checking this stuff before putting it out to the public.

It’s called communist propaganda, they don’t check because they know it’s all lies. We have a media that is working with the communist democrat party, they’re not trying to hide it, they don’t care anymore this has been the plan from Joe McCarthy days when we refused to listen.

This crises is the chance for loads of crap to seize the monument to get another lying sack of shit like Obama to take over and destroy the republic once and for all. A load of shit propaganda media can once again cover up their lies, sneaky deeds, and @cts of treason. All the American people are stupid only the loads of crap lying to us 24/7 are smart. The democrats want us to die and suffer so they can get another loads of shit like Obama back in office to continue to destroy our republic as he did. Climate change bullshit, the real goal is no country, no sovereignty, membership in the new world order. The unelected loads of crap at the UN can take over.
