I think you need to work on your reading comprehension there... for one thing, wcnc.com isn't a Texas TV station, national news site, or a newspaper. It's a local Charlotte, North Carolina TV station. While just about every TV station has a web site these days, accessible from around the world, WCNC still a local station, with news geared for a local audience--it's no CNN or New York Times. And secondly, neither site reported "exactly the story [you] relayed". You claimed that there was a "second Ebola patient"--one of the sheriff's deputies. However, neither site says that the deputy contracted Ebola--just that he was feeling sick to his stomach/having stomach issues, and since he had been in the Ebola victim's apartment, the hospital wanted to observe him "out of an abundance of caution." FYI, the test results are back, and he doesn't have Ebola. You also said, "When offered protective gear, he declined." However, the articles never say that he was offered protective gear, or that he declined it. One simply states, "No one who went inside the unit that day wore protective gear."
