CBS News has come under fire for a video of a nurse who claimed she quit her job because she was not being protected from coronavirus concerns, before Internet sleuths found that the network may not have properly vetted the story.
On Sunday, CBS News posted a video on Twitter of the teary-eyed nurse who broke down when claiming that she “had to make a difficult decision” and quit her job because America “isn’t prepared” to protect the safety of nurses and medical workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In tears, a nurse says she quit her job after she was asked to work in a coronavirus ICU without a face mask: “America is not prepared, and nurses are not being protected” https://t.co/ywoSuLOPYP pic.twitter.com/S5BsnlO5nt

The article goes on to state the following:
The Federalist examined the video and looked into Vera’s background, noting her Instagram following and condemning CBS.
From The Federalist:
The video now appears to be inaccurate. Instead of verifying the legitimacy of the video, CBS added background music and captions to highlight a woman who lied about her workplace situation. The woman, who goes by Imaris on social media, has a prominent following on Instagram.
Prior to CBS picking up this video, Imaris posted on her public Facebook page that she has anxiety and bi-polar depression and had not been an employee at the hospital for over a year. She mentioned in her post that she was unsure if she was ready to return to her job.

Parroting the fraudulent video is 2020 Democratic contender Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. who quote tweeted the video and called on the Department of Labor to issue emergency workplace standards.
It is insane that our nurses are being forced to care for the sick without masks and respirators. The Department of Labor must immediately issue emergency workplace standards to protect our health workers, their families, and their patients. https://t.co/Z8dWqtxz5X

“Jordan Schachtel, the national security correspondent for Conservative Review, pointed out numerous glaring problems with the video in a Twitter thread Monday morning,” the Daily Caller noted.
“The woman’s initial story indicated that she was ‘not allowed to wear masks around any1 [sic] even COVID patient,’ Schachtel tweeted. After Sanders tweeted about her story, the nurse began to clarify,” the Caller reported. “Those working in the unit were, in fact, assigned one ‘N95 per 1 covid patient’s room,’ Imaris clarified. This was not included in her original report, where she claimed that ‘nurses are not being protected.’ ”
Bottom line: Hospital did have adequate supply of PPE & masks & was taking proper precautions, while making prudent decision not to blow through supplies. She shows up, 1st day on job, wants to break protocol & do her own thing. They say no. She quits & goes full crisis actor.
