      @Lord Vader The Leftie Not really. It was eradicated in the developed world but continued to exist in other countries. The last person to catch smallpox was still alive last I checked. He lives in Africa just south of the Sahara.

      @Calamity Jean that’s very true but we’re talking about isolated cases in remote areas. By the early 1960’s the bulk of people were immunised. Even now there’s still the odd case in India

      (.. professor “TUCKERS” this is very southern thing we do behind doors.. once a month.. pls do not make this into a slogan.. “TUCKERS” ..we all know who we are.. “make America great again”..)

    • The difference with those vaccines and this one is the short testing that is done. And we didn’t have billionaires pushing the vaccines who is openly for depopulation of the world by 80%. Give it a couple years and then make a call. Also, they dont even know if the vaccine stops transmission. The 1st shot may only be 50% effective and the J&J shot isn’t created from a coronavirus its created from the virus that causes a common cold. They dont know how long it lasts or how effective it is over a period of time. Basically they dont know much of anything…and you all are stepping up just because they are telling you too. Its like telling the sheep its time to go to the new barn and they listen thinking its going to be the best thing only to find out they were led to the slaughter. Ill stick with my natural immunity thank you.

    • For what?

    • Aaron Hawley | March 22, 2021 at 7:14 PM | Reply

      @Rob Scott sedition and treason for attempting to overthrow the US government for one, that and genocide for promoting lies intentionally causing the deaths of over half a million US citizens

      The lack of accountability for these traitors will be end of the US, you can only live so long with a belly full of cancer

    • @Aaron Hawley look, Murdoch is a POS that has wrecked American politics, but claiming Fox’s lies about Covid amount to genocide is absurd

  4. Way to go Chris
    Your finally calling them out.
    Keep it up !

    • Chris been calling them out. I been watching him, Joy, Rachael, and a bunch more.

    • But what’t the goal? If I choose not to watch fox news, I don’t care to know what was said so why should I get a recap of it on my left media network? The left should just ignore. It’s becoming annoying, they are giving the Tuckers too much power, they control the narrative. Imagine having to write based on what Tucker said. You are giving him power over you

    • @Beau33 I guess the idea is to debunk his/their BS, which some viewers might not be able to do on their own. So it is arguable, and I don’t think it happens on a regular basis, does it?
      The fact that so many Fox News viewers are brainwashed out of getting vaccinated affects all Americans, the country and ultimately the world. . For the record, I’m not American. But it is a question of life and death now, don’t you think? So if Hayes manages to open some people’s eyes to the constant lies they are submitted to, it is worth the shot, IMHO. Stay safe.

      @Beau33 you ignore him and you have no idea what he is doing!
      He is still in the process of making America how he wants it to be through the criminals in the GOP !
      Unless you like surprises you had better be happy someone is watching him!

  5. Wear a mask and wash your hands.stay safe.

    • @JJ KK plastic straws are relevant how???

    • @Rtyert Rt because its hypocrisy to espouse disposable masks at the same time as an “eco-friendly” philosophy. The abuse of these masks is apparent to anybod willing to look.. I see them at the park. People are finding them in the ocean by the hundreds.

      Aquatic life suffocated and choked to death by these “life saving” objects, which the worlds top epidemiologists reject as useful, but the herd demands the illusion miracle be true true. People are dying over these useless chin diapers, let the healthy people be free godammit!

    • @JJ KK again where is the relevance with the plastic straws it seems more like your venting

    • @Rtyert Rtbc the same states/regions that banned plastic straws for pollution worries are now blindly endorsing masks with dogmatic unquestioning zealotry, regardless of pollution consequences. if u refuse to see it, not my fault.

    • @JJ KK what’s your thought on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

    “Carlson’s Not Stupid, He Just Thinks His Audience Is”
    He’d be right about that.

  7. Well his audience is pretty dumb, most of them couldn’t pass first grade today…

  8. correction he KNOWS his audience is stupid !

  9. Fox needs to put up a warning on tuckers show “ Entertainment only”. Someone needs to sue Murdock and or Tucker

    • Just like the warning labels that are required on cigarette packs.

    • the next time they take both Tucker and Hannity to court again make the “entertainment only” warning label stick. Under violation of restarting proceedings Make it known there needs to be that warning even after “Tucker says some stupid stuff that isn’t news,” then later that day or next the news desk on fox will “Report that Tucker said some stupid stuff that isn’t news, but BECAUSE we’re talking about it you viewers will ‘ThiNk’ it’s news”. Then the cycle wouldn’t continue again.

      More entertaining than fake news MSNBC and CNN

    • The Voting Machine Lawsuit might cause all FAKE news ( FOX) to use a disclaimer.

    I’m pleased people are calling out Murdoch. Often people just focus on Carlson and Hannity, etc. but they’re just puppets for Murdoch.

      Speaking of stupidity. trump zealots, even after they were openly conned by trump out of accumulative donations in the hundreds of millions, they still continue to contribute to his PAC, he asked for 6 million to recount Wisconsin, then when he got the 6 mil., only requested a partial recount for 3 mil., and pocketed the other 3 mil. frump is on tape telling the world he lied about COVID from the beginning about how deadly it was, and still his zealots believe his original lies, and not the confessional truth he spoke in the interview.

    • Yes, similarly Robert Mercer & family

  12. Tucker Carlson – the king of disingenuous “just sayin…”

    • @Dy Dayton Yeah, John Oliver just did a whole segment on his “asking questions” B.S. this week. It’s a tactic of weaseling around outright saying what he stands for which are things like white supremacy. Its affective because his watchers think “good ‘ol Tucker always asking the tough question,” but he’s not. He’s asking questions to sway the audience toward his hateful views. And, when weasels like Tucker/Trump ever get called out to their faces, guess what – they run off set. Trump has a history of walking away when his B.S. is called.That’s why they try to never face anyone who is wise to their game and/or won’t throw them softballs.

      Fox often turns off comment sections on Tuckers videos. They don’t want someone making sense. It may sway the brain-washed.

  13. There oughta be a law. Tucker calls himself a God fearing, pro-life, Christian.
    The power of money.

  14. It’s funny , that all those leaders , some t.v. Hosts say how bad the vaccine is to get when they received the vaccine but not telling.

    • It’s because their donors want everyone back to work, so their bank accounts can get fatter! Nothing personal, just business! Half a million dead? As long as it isn’t them!

  15. I think Tucker Carlson is gotta be the biggest Karen of all time lol

      @Steady Bacon well yeah, Karen is a Swedish name and Scandinavians are overwhelmingly progressive. But names can and do change there meaning over time. Things evolve.😉

    • State run media MSNBC trying to stamp out dissent. They are the new Pravda.

      Maybe we can do the people called Karen a solid and call these divas Carlsons in future

    • @W.E. Rob Here’s a PRIVITIZED comment: shut the F-up! In other words, if you don’t think too well, then don’t say too much!

    2:03 “Rupert Murdoch does not want to die a premature death.”
    Well, it’s certain he’ll die an overdue one.

  18. Foul mouth Carlson is questioning the vaccine while his evil boss is getting the vaccine

  19. “Murdoch has become a cancer – an arrogant cancer on our democracy,” Kevin Rudd, the 26th prime minister.

    • Michael Alan | March 18, 2021 at 3:10 PM | Reply

      Murdoch & his family uses our freedom of speech to get rich & commit treason against his adopted nation. He will end up experiencing a horrid karma, like all sociopaths…

    • @Michael Alan “He will end up experiencing a horrid karma, like all sociopaths…” we can only hope.

    • and Rudd was pretty late to the attack, in all honesty.

  20. “Tucker Carlson’s Not Stupid, He Just Thinks His Audience Is”
    And he is not wrong.
