Samaritan’s Purse Chief Admits Ebola ‘Out of Control,’ Slams Drudge for Reporting It

Thursday at the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health hearing titled, “Combating the Ebola Threat,” Samaritan’s Purse’s vice president of programs and government relations Ken Isaacs said, “Ebola is out of control in West Africa,” and then criticized the reporting on the crisis by saying, “I look of the Drudge Report, it can drive a lot of panic.”

Isaacs said, “I will say Ebola is out of control in West Africa, and we are starting to see panic now. Around the world, people want to know. I don’t know about you folks. I look of the Drudge Report. It can drive a lot of panic. There is a guy in New York, a woman in England. Six people tested in the United States. There are reports of 340 peace corps workers coming back.”

Well, yeah.  Just because Ebola is “out of control,” you wouldn’t want to see any media reports that Ebola is, you know, out of fucking control.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
