Panic kills. So let's kill panic before panic kills us.

Ready for some good news? Tom Hanks has not only recovered but is back in the States and doing just fine. Given how much media attention was given to his testing positive for COVID-19, we wonder why more media attention isn't being paid to his recovery.

Is it going to be "the sky is falling" and "it's the end of the world" for the rest of the summer? What's going on here?


By the way, did you know that 80,000 Americans died of the flu in 2018? Neither did we. What's going on here?

Plus, John Stewart, The Simpsons, stand-up comics -- they were all mocking the H1N1 pandemic back in 2009. Why? Because of the same dangerous, media-generated panic that we see going on now. In 2009, the comics helped to pop the panic baloon. 

Finally, as Dr. Oz and other prominent doctors warn against another kind of pandemic -- one involving serious nation-wide mental health consequences associated with COVID-19 panic -- Michael Matt joins the growing chorus of serious voices demanding that the media tone down the fear mongering and begin to get real about what's going on here.
