CBS is under fire for allegedly staging a COVID-19 testing event in Michigan. According to Project Veritas, the traffic coming through the testing center was so low that medical personnel drove their cars through to give an impression of greater COVID-19 numbers in the area.
CBS claims the hospital planned the staged event, and the hospital claims to have nothing to do with it.
Cherry Health CEO, Tasha Blackmon, stated that,
"We and CBS News had nothing to do with that line."
CBS returned a statement saying that that the hospital
"informed us for the first time that one of their chief officers told at least one staffer to get in the testing line along with real patients."
The network says they are removing the segment from air.
The story is developing.
