CNN is hosting a town hall event this week on the Coronavirus.
For some strange reason, the event will feature teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
It makes no sense to include her. She is not an expert on disease or pandemic policy.
The Hill reports:
CNN to feature teen climate activist Greta Thunberg in coronavirus town hall
CNN announced Wednesday it will feature teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg in its next “Coronavirus: Facts and Fears” town hall program set for Thursday night on the cable channel.
The town hall, hosted by “AC 360” anchor Anderson Cooper and CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, will also include former acting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Richard Besser and former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Both officials served in the Obama administration.
The town hall on Thursday night comes one week after the network welcomed filmmaker Spike Lee as well as former Vice President Al Gore to discuss COVID-19.
This just seems silly.

In case you didn't know,
Greta Thunberg was just added to CNN's "expert" coronavirus panel.
CNN is a complete joke! 🤣

It seems like a joke, but it’s real.
