If someone were to mention a right-wing, American news organisation that occasionally dabbles in coronavirus misinformation , your first thought might well be Fox News. But apparently, there`s one growing outlet that`s even more extreme. Introducing One America News Network (OAN), something described by John Oliver as both "an Anchorma n-esque parody of right-wing news" and "Fox News with even less shame, and even fewer scruples." For the latest Last Week Tonight episode, Oliver breaks down exactly why OAN is so dangerous — from the extreme views of its hosts to their growing popularity with the Trump administration.

Elon Musk shared a new video today from Tesla Engineering. "We`re trying to make some ventilators from some car parts, so we can help the medical industry without taking away from their supply," it begins. (All three people who appear in the video are wearing a face mask.) It ends with a demonstration of a prototype using a touchscreen display from the Model 3 infotainment system. "There`s still a lot of work to do," the video concludes, "but we`re giving it our best effort to make sure we can help some people out there." Yesterday ventilator manufacturer Medtronic also tweeted that Musk`s other company SpaceX "is now making a vital component for critical care ventilators," meaning more of the devices would arrive sooner for Covid-19 patients. Meanwhile, the New York Post writes: Musk promised last month to shift production to the sorely-needed medical devices, but evidently found that buying existing ventilators with his own largesse was more practical. He shelled out to send 1,000 of the life-saving machines to California, and also vowed to buy some for New York, earning the gratitude of Mayor Bill de Blasio. Musk made good, with the city`s public hospital system on Saturday tweeting their gratitude for ventilators Tesla donated, now in use at Lincoln Hospital in The Bronx. But, with the apex of the contagion possibly upon New York, Cuomo said Sunday that time had run out for Tesla to make new ventilators. "Their time-frame, frankly, doesn`t work for our immediate apex, because whether we`re talking two days or 10 days, you`re not going to make ventilators at that time," said Cuomo, noting that the hang-up is that some parts have to come from overseas.

FORT COLLINS — Aerospace parts producer Woodward Inc. (Nasdaq: WWD) laid off approximately 150 contract employees in recent weeks as the novel coronavirus’ spread wreaks havoc on commercial airline orders.

Woodward is on track with its $6.3 billion merger of equals with Hexcel Corp.

Reached by phone, Fire Marshall Brett Lacey tells the Indy his inspectors understand the trauma local businesses, many of which have shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic, are experiencing, but the public`s welfare is of primary concern. "The fire and life safety of buildings, businesses and service providers in this community is more important now than maybe ever before," he says, "because we`re in a worldwide crisis where people have had to shut things down rapidly and do things in a totally different way. "What we don`t want to see is, people making decisions that may [negatively] impact fire and life safety. We want businesses to remain open.…
