FOX Business’ Stuart Varney, in his latest “My Take,” argues that the media has “no interest” in the go-back-to-work movement or coronavirus lockdown protests.
But when it comes to stay-at-home rules, Varney said the media is “all in.”
“You can see it coming a mile off. A state loosens up. Some businesses reopen. It’s started already in a dozen states. And if there’s the slightest up-tick in new cases or deaths, the media will pounce,” he said. “It’s predictable. The media skews left and the left will use any loosening of the rules as a club to beat up on President Trump.”

Varney said even though Trump has considered extending social distancing policies into summer, the media will continue on with a political strategy to “accuse him of reckless policies.”
“It’s the blood-on-your-hands argument,” he said.
According to Varney, the media won’t pay any attention to the benefits of reopening the economy and getting back to work such as lessening the economic burden.
