As Trump Golfs - ‘Incalculable Loss’: NY Times Front Page Features Names, Obituaries of 1,000 Coronavirus Victims

Mod: It should be quite obvious to everyone by now that this guy couldn't care less.

‘Incalculable Loss’: New York Times Front Page Features Names, Obituary Excerpts of 1,000 Coronavirus Victims (MEDIAITE link): The New York Times unveiled an astonishing cover for Sunday’s paper, featuring the names of 1,000 victims of Covid-19.

“Instead of the articles, photographs or graphics that normally appear on the front page of The New York Times, on Sunday, there is just a list: a long, solemn list of people whose lives were lost to the coronavirus pandemic,” The Times announced in a piece explaining the cover on Saturday.

“As the death toll from Covid-19 in the United States approaches 100,000, a number expected to be reached in the coming days, editors at The Times have been planning how to mark the grim milestone,” they wrote. “Simone Landon, assistant editor of the Graphics desk, wanted to represent the number in a way that conveyed both the vastness and the variety of lives lost.”

According to a John Hopkins University tally, 96,983 people in the United States have died from the coronavirus. There is a nationwide total of 1.6 million cases. As the country approaches 100,000 deaths, states including Texas and Florida have already begun relaxing lockdown measures, allowing for businesses to reopen.

“We knew we were approaching this milestone,” said Simone Landon, assistant editor of the Times graphics desk. “We knew that there should be some way to try to reckon with that number.”

The 1,000 names shown on the cover represent just 1% of the total lives lost in the United States throughout this pandemic.

  1. Let me tell yeah what a loser looks and acts like. You got it, (djt) and yellow streaked loser will be known as the WoRsT PrEsIdEnT in American History. Could be called by his secret service name: Chicken $hitter. His clock is running out as being a LaMe DuCk president, of course he was never one but in title only and he bought that!

    1. Reality check:
      Trump is part of the two-party establishment working for the 1%. That's not a definition of a loser by any standard. They made decisions that affect millions of regular Americans that have very little political power.

    3. Can't help if partisan morons prefer to be f*cked by Dems instead of GOP. Make sure to ask for a Dem inmate prisoner b/f when you ended up in prison. And don't forget to ask your prison b/f if he's a comrade or purebred American.

  2. GOP governor offers emotional plea to the anti-mask crowd: Stop this senseless culture war, where only the stupid anti-maskers have the most to lose, much like that loser in the W.H. but only for a few more days unless GOD puts a helping hand in and revokes his stinking-life permit her on earth?

    1. Billionaires play by different rules.
      You have to be a billionaire and on the right side of partisan politics to defy state order. Such as Elon Musk challenged the county to arrest him when he defiantly reopening the Tesla plant. For the rest of the regular little people they will be arrested and fined.

  5. 100,000 reported deaths in 4 months is a staggering number. This number will go up in the second wave.

    Perspective on this number:
    100,000 deaths is .03% (.0003) of approx. 330 million US population
    (comparison example: this equals to 3 cents per $100)

  7. @JoeBiden
    This is jarring — and a heartbreaking reminder that the death toll we see in the news is so much more than just a statistic. Every single one marks a future cut short and a family and community that will never be the same. @DrBiden and I are keeping them all in our hearts.

  12. Let me help you dumb dump supporters out. People are dying in droves. Usually, when the USA president has class and respect for humans, when something tragic happens, the president displays sorrow. But, this president is incapable of that, so he goes golfing. Most people take offense to that. Do you now understand?

  16. What we have are "stupid morons" who are the cause of this COVID-19 pandemic in the first place. And once again they are trying (GOP) to shift blame, it happened on their watch and they can take responsibility for it. Can't help if partisan morons prefer to be forked by Dems instead of GOP. "the answer to this bald face lie of a statement is: your GOP friends are too busy screwing one another to notice," Make sure to ask for a Dem inmate prisoner b/f when you ended up in prison. And don't forget to ask your prison b/f if he's a comrade or purebred American, like (djt) communist family and pimp family linage from the fatherland.

    1. The spread of the coronavirus was brought about by Trump's fear of taking the necessary measures to stop it. This decision was based solely on his concern that by doing so he would cause a panic on Wall Street, which could negatively effect his campaign for reelection. Those 100,000 deaths were caused by a political decision.
