WINTER HAVEN, Florida — Corporate media are “lockdowners” who have continued to advance an “anti-Florida” narrative throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, but Florida’s “rational” approach has proven successful, particularly in terms of “quality of life, education, and economy,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Monday.
Breitbart News has continued to track the number of new cases of the Chinese coronavirus in both Florida and New York, the latter of which the establishment media heavily praised throughout the pandemic last year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) data, however, has shown the Sunshine State consistently reporting fewer new cases of the virus per capita than blue New York, despite DeSantis’s administration prioritizing personal liberty, opening the state while refusing to implement a statewide mask mandate.
When asked about this phenomenon, DeSantis told Breitbart News the corporate media, specifically, has attempted to advance an “anti-Florida” narrative from the beginning. Nevertheless, the state continues to wield positive results for Floridians, as well as others who are fleeing blue states under Democrat leaders who are continuing to embrace restrictive policies.
“Corporate media, they are lockdowners. They supported lockdowns, and they always supported lockdowns. They obviously support blue state governors over red state governors. What Florida has done was basically completely challenge the narrative,” DeSantis said, explaining his administration largely ignored the “talking heads on some of these cable places” and instead did “what the data was telling us to do.”
“Quite frankly, it’s not just about COVID. I mean, you have a society here you have to protect. I mean, kids being in school. People being able to work. People have rights and people have freedoms and so we respected those,” DeSantis continued, explaining how coronavirus mortality has recently been adjusted in a way that, again, shows the success of Florida’s approach.
