Glad to see where finally getting some where. Let it spread, let it spread, let it spread. The only way this is going to end is Herd Immunity meaning at least 60 - 70% of the population needs to get immunity and that's not going to happen when only 200 and some odd people test positive each day

The fact you are refusing to air these VALID Hearings from Witnesses who witnessed Deliberate Voter Fraud means your hiding something the people need to know. You have blatantly denied Oregonians thru Lying By Omission. Smarten up, you work for the people, Without us, Your company doesn't exist

Two thoughts here nobody old in Oregon has died for natural causes since Mar. Second, I think this news channel loves to tell everyone how many people are sick and died everyday!

Plain jane type deaths only pay $. Thrown in a 'Covid-19' cause of death, even if it wasn't, and it pays $$$$$. So of course they are going to put 'Covid-19' as cause of death (and it keep the fear ratcheted up.as well).

Just need to isolate older people with underlying health conditions. Not the whole planet.

That would make way too much sense, especially for the idiot running our state.
