(Liberty Bell) – It’s truly extraordinary how much credit the mainstream media will assign to someone–anyone–if they’re willing to parrot the establishment left-wing narrative.
Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who dropped out of high school to lecture the world about climate change, couldn’t be a more perfect example.
Despite the multitude of experts who are expressing a variety of opinions on how to address the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, CNN saw fit to include Thunberg on a recent virtual town hall event.
This was also in spite of the fact that she has even less authority to speak on a global health crisis than she does on climate change.
But she says exactly what the left wants to hear, and, in an era where children have become one of the favorite tools of virtue-signaling leftists, she was certainly perfect for their particular brand of propaganda.
She said exactly what they wanted her to say.
Nevermind the fact that it didn’t make a lick of sense.
Breitbart News reports that during Thursday’s Coronavirus: Facts and Fears program on CNN, Thunberg declared that she hopes the virus will teach others to listen to the experts when it comes to climate change.

Breitbart provided a transcript:
ANDERSON COOPER: One of the things I’ve seen you talk about alone is how important it is to listen to experts and listen to science. This is a time when — you know, I wasn’t a very good science student when I was in school — but this is a time, it seems, that the global scientific community is so critically important and we’re really seeing how important it is to follow science.
GRETA THUNBERG: Yes, exactly. I hope that we can see now the scientific community are stepping up and they are speaking out more than they’ve done before because, obviously, this is a crisis that requires the scientific community to speak up. It feels like science is — the role of science changing now — it’s becoming more — people are starting to realize that we are actually depending on science and that we need to listen to scientists and experts. And I really hope that stays and that also it’s for other crises like the climate crisis and the environmental crisis and that we understand that we have to listen to the scientists.
