McConnell Accuses Media Of McCarthyism

On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell threw some serious accusations at the mainstream media.

He said several media outlets of spewing "modern-day McCarthyism.” McConnell is responding to criticism he faced from the media for blocking an election-security bill.

A Washington Post op-ed described McConnell as a "Russian asset." The article went on to say McConnell was “doing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bidding." McConnell called it a “shameful smear and based on more lies.

Russia approves Covid-19 vaccine 'Sputnik V': Why's the world sceptical?

Russia has become the first country to approve a Covid-19 vaccine and it has been named 'Sputnik V'. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the vaccine was effective and said that one of his daughters had already been inoculated. The vaccine is administered in two doses and consists of two serotypes of a human adenovirus, each carrying an S-antigen of the new coronavirus, which enter human cells and produce an immune response. However, concerns have been raised from several quarters over the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. Several countries including the US, Canada and Germany have raised questions over the vaccine and said that vaccine production is not a race. What makes matters murky is that the approval comes even before the start of a larger trial involving thousands of participants, commonly known as a Phase III trial. The World Health Organisation said any stamp of approval on a COVID-19 vaccine candidate would require a rigorous safety data review. So why is the world sceptical about Russia's 'Sputnik V'? Watch this video to find out.

Russia Claims To Have a COVID Vaccine, Refuses To Release Data

The US medical community has rejected Trump's belief that a vaccine could be ready by Election Day. There are 25 vaccines currently in clinical trials and more than 100 more in development. But this is not the space race, it's a worldwide pandemic and Putin is trying to claim victory. Critics say the country's push for a vaccine is partly due to political pressure from the Kremlin. CNN reports Putin and his team are keen to portray Russia as a global scientific force.
