The shitshow continues with more lies, and, even more alarmingly, the truth. As of today, 152,000 people have signed up for Test Nebraska. Test Nebraska has done 350,000 assessments, which means everyone who signed up has had to try two or three times to even have their information assessed to see if they can possibly […]
Back at it again. Wednesday was mostly a big snooze fest about how nearly all of the federal pandemic money is going to businesses and very very little is going to actually help the people, though one very important thing did get snuck in there regarding Don Bacon’s bill to reroute the money meant for […]
We started Seeing Red Nebraska because of the deficiencies in news coverage in this state. To be clear: we believe that communities need to support local media and subscribe to their local newspapers. We also believe that the state has a couple (but probably not many more than that) solid journalists who do good work. […]
It appears this week will be the last week Ricketts will be doing press conferences, and we think we know why. It is obvious that Ricketts is having a very hard time pretending to give a shit about Nebraskans anymore, and he is becoming increasingly angry and flustered at being questioned about his horrible decisions […]
Life Care of Elkhorn is owned by a multi-billionaire who has made a criminal fortune off of providing “care” that has often been fraudulent or horrifically negligent to elderly people of limited means. Now the outbreak is likely causing calamitous staffing shortages at a time when extra care is needed and few outsiders can observe conditions in the facility.
Sorry we are a little late on this one, but as we were going back over our notes from last Friday’s presser for a separate article, we realized a recap from last Friday was needed because it was … a lot. Off we go. As always, Ricketts started off with a plea to sign up […]
U.S. Senator Ben Sasse delivered the online commencement address to students graduating from his alma mater, Fremont High School, on Saturday, May 16. Students may have anticipated that the self-styled Never-Trump sage of the Senate would offer some inspirational remarks, or, failing that, some boring pablum. Instead, we all got to watch what happens when […]
The Governor started today by explaining why it’s totally expected that we would have a delay in getting any test results from TestNebraska to our public health departments: Now for the Q&A: The rules for bars still apply. Unless you have a food license it’s takeout only. This includes the strip club in Omaha. Why […]
Yesterday’s textile bros are today’s tech bros, passing off shoddy testing instead of shoddy uniforms, easily finding willing dupes in incompetent governors’ offices.
I have been watching Ricketts’s press conferences almost every day and taking notes, mostly in an attempt to keep track of his many lies and many changes in his story from day to day. I am wildly disappointed in the local coverage and softball questions, so I am going to try to do quick recaps […]
