In this episode of “Just When You Thought the Liberal Media Couldn’t Beclown Itself Any More Ridiculously”… Nothing quite says “Merry Christmas, America,” like WaPo calculating the number of people who die from Covid from the moment you begin listening to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” until the song ends — and wanting you to know.
It “almost” reads like a satire piece from a dark version of The Babylon Bee, doesn’t it?
“Every time you listen to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” about five people have died from the coronavirus between the beginning and the end of the song.”
As if it wasn’t bad enough, WaPo included an image of an obviously-ill patient to try to make you feel even worse.

What kind of depraved WaPo editor thought this was a good idea — including the image of the hospitalized patient? Listen, I understand the Left better than they understand themselves, so I get the whole guilt trip thing they tirelessly attempt to foist on the rest of us but c’mon!
Besides, what makes these shameless exploiters not think that perhaps COVID-positive Americans enjoy Christmas and “White Christmas,” just as much as non-COVID-affected people? And maybe even more so this year because, even if they have COVID, they’re alive to enjoy it? Not to mention those who might have lost loved ones to the virus.
In an article titled “A death every 33 seconds” — appropriately placed the Politics section — Phillip Bump, who “largely focuses on the numbers behind politics,” wrote:
It’s hard to resist the sense that the slowly growing number of deaths in the United States each day is a tragedy of world-shaping proportions.
For all of the efforts by some to diminish the death toll and to shrug at the steadily expanding saturation of American hospital beds, our country is losing an American every 33 seconds to covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus that emerged last year.
Every time you listen to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” about five people have died of the virus between the beginning and the end of the song.
You know what? Not to make it creepy, but screw WaPo and screw Phil. Here ya go.
Among the best responses to Phil:
I’ve stopped listening. Thanks for the heads up.

Same amount of people die in the amount of time it takes to sing ‘Back That Thang Up’ too.

Every time you read a Washington Post article, about 9 babies have been killed in abortions between the beginning and the end of the article.https://t.co/3AkeiJ2df5

China Daily has paid the Washington Post $4.6 million for insets since 2016, which means 20 Uyghurs die every time you read a WaPo article from the headline to the inevitable correction https://t.co/cJifXlWgNP

Finally, my two faves.
Studies show “White Christmas” is listened to 2.7 million times a day in December. At five people dead per playing, over the span of 18 days so far, that would mean 243 million people have died from the coronavirus.
This has not happened.

Dean Martin’s version is 7 seconds shorter, and The Drifters came in at 9 seconds shorter. A fuller “analysis” is necessary but I need grant money.

Hopefully, this was the most ridiculous thing you’ve read, today. Then again, given the crazy episode of “Twilight Zone” in which we now find ourselves, I doubt it.
