NEW YORK (AP) — ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl is calling on Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to apologize for a tweet condemning the media.
Karl is head of the White House Correspondents' Association, and he said Monday that Rubio's tweet was outrageous and hurtful.
Rubio had tweeted that some in the media “can’t contain their glee and delight” at the news that the United States had surpassed China in the number of coronavirus cases.
Karl says Rubio should make clear who he was talking about, and the senator has not done so.
The Florida Republican also suggested the Chinese have lied about the number of coronavirus cases in that country.
Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) March 29, 2020
Beyond being grotesque,its bad journalism
We have NO IDEA how many cases China really has but without any doubt its significantly more than why they admit to
