CNN has just accused Governor Greg Abbott of accusing Biden of exposing Texans to COVID “without evidence”:
Gov. Greg Abbott, who has said without evidence that migrants expose Texans to Covid-19, is stalling a federal offer to test people released from custody. https://t.co/INGBDG8qwj

Without evidence? Does CNN even bother to read the news?
After Border Patrol release, asylum-seekers test positive for Covid-19 in Brownsville, Texas. https://t.co/wMrVmUXBLd

“After Border Patrol release, asylum-seekers test positive for Covid-19 in Brownsville, Texas.”
It’s right in the freaking title, and that’s what the whole article is about.
The article was written by Priscilla Alvarez and contains the same lie in the first couple paragraphs:
After relaxing state Covid restrictions this week, Abbott alleged, without evidence, that migrants coming into Texas are exposing the state’s residents to the coronavirus.
“The Biden administration has been releasing immigrants in south Texas that have been exposing Texans to Covid,” Abbott, a Republican, said in a CNBC interview Thursday.
Maybe Alvarez needs to go back to journalism school or something, because this is pathetic.
