    Garrett Graff on the 'collective experience' of Covid-19, the media coverage, and Trump's disinformation

    "We are living through a united, national moment," Garrett Graff says, likening the pandemic to WWII and 9/11. Despite the "paucity of national inspirational leadership," Graff highlights how "much of the nation's response has been driven by individuals at the local level." Graff also tells Brian Stelter about his decision to compile an "oral history" about the coronavirus crisis. He says the project is vital because "we're all losing track of time... We're all stuck in a weird 'Groundhog Day' loop that is causing us to really lose sight of the momentousness of the changes in our lives."
