Dr. Anthony Fauci joined me on @840WHAS to discuss safely attending the @KentuckyDerby, fast-tracking a vaccine, football challenges, getting business back on track, and how to maneuver in an anti-authority & anti-science culture. 🎙 audio here: https://t.co/kb2nwYFrBP #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/F3lA8g7nXr — Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) August 7, 2020 I had a nice radio chat with America's top infectious disease researcher Dr. Anthony Fauci. We discussed how to safely attend the Kentucky Derby during the coronavirus pandemic. We also dug into the challenges facing leaders during an anti-authority and anti-science period in our culture. And what about football! The White House staff gave me 7 minutes with Dr. Fauci so we crammed as much info in as we could. America's 😷 top health official Dr. Anthony

And who should give it back. "I was pleased to see one of the big companies after the publicity return the $$$. More of them should do that," @senatemajldr McConnell on large corporations that got millions from Paycheck Protection Program aimed for small businesses.via @terrymeiners https://t.co/nVb9YJElyg— Eva McKend (@evamckend) April 23, 2020
Keen analysis from @MZHemingway. @Yamiche is clearly an activist masquerading as a journalist, e.g. when she tried to connect American nationalism to racism.It’s appalling that taxpayers fund part of her salary.https://t.co/JwfXQiJPJr https://t.co/D5oI46f788— Steve Cortes (@CortesSteve) April 2, 2020 The codependency of an adversarial media vs. a narcissistic president produces skewed news. This is a glowing example of how our media business has crashed and burned. As comedian Jon Stewart pointed out years ago, media egos took the bait and no straight reporting has been produced since.
Rep. John Yarmuth joined me on the phone from his self-quarantine to discuss his recent coronavirus test, a necessary step after being in close contact with Brown Forman heir Christy Brown who had just tested positive. The radio interview spilled into whether U.S. health officials should trust health assessments released by Chinese officials, and whether American consumers should be subjected to taking medications manufactured in China. We also discussed COVID-19 challenges for workers at both Louisville area Ford plants. Over 13,000 workers are employed at Ford alone, with thousands more clustered at other factories and Amazon distribution centers. Here’s @RepJohnYarmuth on his brush with #COVID19, possible shutdowns @ford, who’d receive free govt 💰, trusting Chinese medications, & doubting that @realDonaldTrump actually took a
University of Louisville athletics director Vince Tyra did an extensive interview with me on 840WHAS regarding the complete shutdown of sports during the global coronavirus pandemic. Vince had a lot to say about the financial challenges his department faces, how to keep student athletes engaged during the down time, responsibilities for coaches, and a message for fans left hanging in limbo. Here’s @vincetyra on responsibilities for UofL student athletes and coaches during #COVID19 shutdown, financial challenges going forward, more 🏀🏈⚾️ @840WHAS audio https://t.co/zOQTbjSdnM @theacc @ncaa pic.twitter.com/hFScKsHNOk— Terry Meiners (@terrymeiners) March 17, 2020 I also asked Tyra for comment on Rick Pitino's new statement that he "deserved to be fired" by the University of Louisville. Pitino said it on New York radio
Now that Super Tuesday 3 is in the books, the numbers are ominous for Senator Bernie Sanders. There is really no path to victory now that former Vice President Joe Biden has roared through another big Democratic primary sweep. From DailyMail.com Louisville's second most popular music star Jim James of My Morning Jacket (yes, Jack Harlow is now a bigger deal) did his best to stoke the #FeelTheBern crowd by appearing at an online rally. America is sequestered during a coronavirus pandemic so all musicians are practicing "social distancing" onstage as viewers watch online. Louisville's MMJ star @jimjames joined @neilyoung and his mermaid to help @BernieSanders on the eve of #SuperTuesday3. It led to a bad day at the polls and now
After talking about my Christmas shopping panic on my radio show in 1992, a man called me and said he could help me get the one Power Ranger doll that my kid wanted from Santa Claus. I met the listener in a mall parking lot where he sold me the doll for triple its retail price. I wanted to walk away but I thought of my kid's Christmas morning joy and took the hit. But I will never forget the skeezy smile on that old man's face as he took my money. A prick like that would get his karma some day, some way, somehow. But a Merry Christmas to everyone else, I thought. Simon loved his toy and my
