    South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has accused the media of manipulating facts, choosing what to cover and what not to cover, to push lockdowns for the coronavirus pandemic. In her own state, Governor Noem refused to implement lockdowns and achieved virus numbers which were better than most states that had lockdowns.

    "I really realized the last six to eight months is how manipulative they can be towards public perception, and I think they do a lot of it through what they choose to cover and what they choose not to cover."

    Noem continued, "They definitely spent a lot of time attacking — and I would say — really sensationalizing items and pulling out facts that worked for an agenda that they were trying to sell, and then rarely covering the good news of what was happening here in South Dakota, and that really is what is disturbing to me."
