Bill Maher Tests Positive for COVID, Forcing HBO to Table ‘Real Time’ Taping

....Bill Maher has tested positive for COVID-19, forcing HBO to scrap Friday’s scheduled taping of this week’s episode.

In a statement, HBO said Maher is “fully vaccinated” and “feels fine.” Friday’s guests were to have included astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and “Hardcore History” podcast host Dan Carlin.

“Bill tested positive during weekly staff PCR testing for COVID. He is fully vaccinated and as a result is asymptomatic and feels fine,” HBO said. ” ‘Real Time’ production has taken every precaution following COVID CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time. The show will be rescheduled at a later date.”

Maher is in the midst of his 19th season of hosting the talk and roundtable series that tackles politics and pop culture. As host, Maher revels in his contrarian views and is known for showcasing media figures who have been caught up in controversy such as Megyn Kelly, Sharon Osborne and Kellyanne Conway. He has also made incendiary statements about medical issues in the past including questioning the efficacy of vaccines and whether there are links between vaccinations and autism.

“Real Time,” which tapes in Los Angeles, is the latest series to face a pandemic-related shutdown. Hollywood has been basically successful in getting film and TV production back up and running by mandating strict safety protocols for every soundstage and location shoot.

But dozens of productions have faced the hardship of having to shut down quickly because a cast or crew member tests positive for coronavirus. The entertainment industry is still digging out from the slowdown in production last year, which has set the stage for a very busy second half of this year and early next year for new releases.



so.......not a good sign.......?!

Lots of fully vaccinated people are coming down with it. The vaccine reduces the severity of the illness, but it’s not a perfect shield. Keep taking precautions.

Keep taking precautions.


Exactly.

I shake my head when I hear people say 'you don't need to wear a mask anymore' as though I'm doing something wrong.

First there was 'What, the CDC says we should maskup and social distance and somebody doesn't want to — WTF!'

Now it's 'What, the CDC says we can demask, and not social distance, and now somebody doesn't want to — WTF!'

I masked up early and will demask later.

I believe in science, but not all science is exact science, and I think there's still much to learn.

I'm ok with the 'you do you and I'll do me' concept at this point.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

$1 says that when Maher comes back he’ll express bewilderment over the “why,” with a healthy dose of skepticism surrounding guidelines. His scripted monologues are well-crafted and successfully targeted. But they still depend on a PREMISE and his can often be faulty. He knows that nuance and context don’t really pay the bills.

So, asymptomatic. The only way to know he was sick was to have been tested. He was tested per company protocol, not because of known illness or exposure. False positives are a thing. If the results were not confirmed, then there are no meaningful conclusions that can be drawn, other than that for safety sake Mahar should take some time off.
