During this morning’s episode of Fox & Friends, co-host Pete Hegseth wondered aloud if more testing might find more positive results, and if that would be a ‘good thing?’
“Data is a pesky thing too. Because what if we start testing more and as a result of more testing we find more positives? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
“And if the leaders say we have more positive tests, therefore, we need to delay even further — that doesn’t make sense to people. Maybe those are the same amount of people that had it before. We just weren’t testing.
“So data can be the type of thing that leaders can also manipulate as we try to get forward and past this.”
“Is that a good or a bad thing?” Well, Pete, adequate testing would help answer that question.
But what would be really bad is go just close our eyes and hope for the best.
