Your discussion of reduction in deaths per day is factual and fine. Where you get into political conspiracy theory is when you say the press coverage will go away after the election. You may not say the name 'Trump', but the political conspiracy message is clear. You then declare recognition of past cases must be political and designed to keep us locked down (and presumably harm Trump's re-election chances). But, this sort of re-examination of cases always occurs. That's why the final count of flue-season deaths typically doesn't happen until months after the season is over. Your double counted knee-surgery patient will likely be reconciled, likely weeks or months down the road. There is nothing negarious in this, a lot (most$, all?) localities/hospitals don't have the means to immediately identify someone as already counted.
The press hasn't hyped this. 120,000 dead Americans from a new, and little-understood new disease is a big deal, and without cure or immunization it is scary, especially for those of us over 70. If there is any political shading of the facts throughout this epidemic, it has been led by President Trump. For a long time, he and his administration (other than the doctors) spoke derisively of the impact of Covid (only 10K at this point, compared to a normal flue season, which is about 30K). Well, we are now at over 120K, which is just about exactly twice the deaths from the worst flu season in the past decade.
You make the same error that President Trump tried to sell us: freezing the number at a point in time. When you are in the period of exponential growth, comparing current #s to an entire flu season (as Trump/Azar/spokespeople) did or ignoring that deaths will follow a sharp increase in cases and hospital emissions, as you are doing.
Any way you slice it, President Trump arguing against masking and social distancing (neither the same as shutting down the economy -- nations which never shut down have used these methods, plus contact tracing to get the job done) has led to a ton of extra cases and tens of thousands of additional deaths.
