Despite the fact that CNN has gone all missing plane on ebola, yesterday Wolf Blitzer said the blame for the ebola panic in the US belongs on the White House.
"Ebola has certainly eroded the confidence in the way the Obama administration and medical professionals have handled it. It requires a delicate balancing act between telling people the hard facts without overly scaring.,' Blitzer said.
Again, I will repeat the facts, there are 316 million people in the United States, of those people, only 2 have contracted ebola in this country. Both people are nurses that were working very closely with an ebola patient in a hospital that didn't really know what they were doing.
The panic and the scaring that Wolf Blitzer is talking about comes not from the White House, but comes from a media that is obsessed (for the moment) on ebola.
We agree that "poor messaging" is the problem, but don't look to Washington, just flip on your TV.
