CNS -- Which Touted Silver Linings To Pandemic -- Complains That Harris Sees 'Opportunity'

Susan Jones complained in a Nov. 12 article:

Vice President Kamala Harris, speaking at the Paris Peace Forum on Thursday, focused on what she called the "dramatic rise in inequality" -- gaps between the rich and the poor that she says were made worse and more visible by the global coronavirus pandemic.

She called the pandemic "an opportunity" to address those gaps.

Then, at a news conference on Friday, Harris said she and other world leaders discussed "what should be the norms and the rules of the 21st Century."


Today, at a news conference marking the end of her visit to Paris, Harris said it's up to the United States and its partners and allies to "focus on what should be the norms and the rules of the 21st century."

"We are at the beginning of a new era, as highlighted by the pandemic, to be sure. But also marked by the increasing awareness...of the climate crisis and immanency of that and the urgency of this moment. Technology, what it has done in terms of creating opportunities but also creating real concerns about security.

"We are at the beginning of a new era," Harris repeated.

Jones diidn't mention that, as we've documented, CNS previously had no problem publishing writers who claimed to find silver linings in the pandemic:

  • Managing editor Michael W. Chapman touted evangelist Anne Graham Lotz. who claimed to find a "blessing in the coronavirus" in that God is perhaps using the pandemic "to get our attention so that we will listen to His message," and that this will spark a "national spiritual renewal."
  • CNS published a column by Tony Perkins of the conservative Family Research Council literally headlined "A Silver Lining to the Dark Cloud of COVID-19," in which he gushed that while thousands may have died, but people are "turning to God"
  • A CNS column by John Stonestreet and Shane Morris promoted the alleged silver lining that divorce rates have gone down during the pandemic.
  • A CNS column by Stan Greer of the National Institute for Labor Relations Research declared of the pandemic: "One potential silver lining of this catastrophe is that it could force many elected officials in states that have granted monopoly-bargaining privileges to government union bosses at last to recognize that they have a duty to revoke all such privileges."
  • Erica Sanzi declared in her Oct. 15 CNS column: "It feels wrong to assert that there might have been a silver lining to the pandemic, but if one does exist, it’s that so many families got a front row seat for their children’s day-to-day education and were deeply unhappy with what they saw."

Jones didn't explain why these CNS columnists and writers are allowed to find silver liniings in a pandemic that "killed millions" but Harris isn't.
