This week, Joshua Holland gets a thing or two off his chest about the widespread belief that you can just wish away a historic public health crisis that is very much ongoing, and about the press's discomfort blaming right-wing propaganda for drawing out the Coronavirus pandemic.

Then we're joined by Eric Umansky, deputy managing editor at ProPublica.
