It is entirely understandable that the corporate media would popularise the term “coronavirus” for SARS-CoV-2.

The split personality disorder of the corporate media is being increasingly exposed by covid-19. On the one hand, it has to sensationalise, in order to sell audiences to advertisers – for this is how it makes profit. On the other hand, it has to oppose government-imposed social restrictions – closing shops and entertainments – for advertising these is, again, how it makes profit.

Hopelessly hamstrung.
