Amazon has reportedly begun to eliminate its library of anti-vaccine documentaries from its Amazon Prime Video streaming services, only hours after Rep. Adam Schiff (D. Calif.) wrote an open letter to Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos, expressing concern, according to CNN.

Driving the news: Wired recently reported that vaccine doubt is growing globally, indicating that public trust in science is diminishing. Amazon's recommendation algorithms has pushed people toward its anti-vaxx content and while its film list is shrinking, a collection of anti-vaxx books remains available for purchase on Amazon.com.

President Trump tweeted on Friday that his administration is "going a different way" with coronavirus aid after negotiations with congressional Democrats stalled again, suggesting he will use an executive order to address stimulus spending.

What he's saying: "Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!" Trump tweeted.

President Trump's rhetoric on China has tended to run hotter than his actions — until now.

Why it matters: Even at the height of Trump's trade war, his administration never hit China as hard, as fast, and on as many fronts as it is right now.
