Monday on Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos started off the show scolding Americans visiting family:
"Look at these lines at airports all across the country. That's Phoenix right there. CDC put out a travel warning saying do not travel for Thanksgiving. Apparently a lot of people are not listening," he whined.
"Not listening," fill-in anchor T.J. Holmes agreed, before gushing about COVID record numbers in hospitalizations. The journalists seemed to be rooting for the holiday to become a "super spreader event." On screen it read, "Thanksgiving Super Spreader? Millions Ignoring CDC Guidance Not to Travel." Two back-to-back reports followed fretting about COVID and Thanksgiving.
