CNN: Is Fox News Killing People?

CNN: Is Fox News Killing People?


Even as President Joe Biden planned ways to walk back his assertion that social media platforms like Facebook are “killing people” by not suppressing “misinformation” about the COVID-19 vaccine, CNN put the caustic charge into overdrive — accusing the top-rated network on cable news of leading its own audience to needless deaths.

On Sunday’s “State of the Union,” host Dana Bash asked the surgeon general of the United States if the Fox News Channel has blood on its hands for allegedly stoking vaccine hesitancy among its viewership.Bash played clips of Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson opposing vaccine passports and forced vaccination before asking Surgeon General Vivek Murthy if they bore personal or corporate responsibility for U.S. deaths from the Delta variant.

“President Biden did accuse social media platforms of killing people,” Bash said. “Do you think conservative media, like Fox News, are doing the same? Are they killing people, too, with rhetoric like you just heard?”

In the clips CNN played, both Fox hosts said they opposed forcing people to take a vaccination. Ingraham said, “There’s nothing more anti-democratic, anti-freedom than pushing an experimental drug on Americans against their will.” Carlson asked, “Is there a precedent” for the government to “force people to take medicine they don’t want or need … in our lifetime?”
