Mike Rowe explains that reality is going to win with the Wuhan virus


Recommended Posts


Mike Rowe became famous as the “Dirty Jobs” jobs guy on the Discovery Channel show that ran from 2005 to 2012. He’s now got a show called Somebody’s Gotta Do It, and he’s recently been filming episodes for that show.

Over the years, Rowe has impressed people, not only with his willingness to try his hand at dangerous and dirty jobs, but for his good sense of humor and his admirable pragmatism. That was on display when he explained that the virus will not stop him from working on his television show. He believes the virus will do what it’s going to do and, therefore, he refuses to give in to panic or stop living.

On his Facebook page, Rowe will occasionally answer letters from people. The most recent letter came from Darlene Gabon, who thought he was being irresponsible to continue working while the Wuhan virus is still out there:

In a recent post, you said you’ve been to Tennessee and Georgia, giving speeches and filming for your new show. Before that, you were on the road shooting for Dirty Jobs. Is it really so important to film a television show in the midst of pandemic? Is it responsible of you to encourage this kind of behavior when infection rates are spiking? Don’t you watch the news? More and more cases every day – aren’t you concerned?

While the news media report little but chaos and failure in the effort to combat COVID-19, and perpetually chronicle the climbing cumulative death count, the CDC death count by week has declined steadily since April 18. Shouldn't this hopeful sign work its way into the daily barrage of Coronavirus pandemic reporting? Why has it fallen into a news black hole?
