What kind of disingenuous bull shite reporting is this? So he literally has the common cold, but they’re referring to it as “the” rhinovirus to sensationalize it and make it seem worse than it actually is? The media is unbearable

WAFB joined the rest of the hacks after firing Kiran. Sad.

When you’re 23 and healthy it’s a common cold. When you’re 83 and you get hospitalized, I think it’s OK to call it the rhinovirus.

Really living up to your name there buddy. Your subjective dramatic reality doesn’t change the fact that it’s the common cold, or merit a more severe scary name to make it seem like it’s a killer virus. Any journalist who changes descriptors based on the situation is a dishonest hack
