Fox News Backtracks As Covid-19 Surges

 

The Biden administration and experts are sounding the alarm about how media misinformation is contributing to the recent rise in cases of the coronavirus. Experts argue politicizing the vaccine and discouraging its use undermines this key safety method at the very same time the nation could have put the virus on its back for good. MSNBC’s Ari Melber breaks down Fox News’ mixed messaging on the virus and the cost of this kind of false rhetoric. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ).

  1. The irony of Carlson stating that news networks shouldn’t give medical advice, since that exactly what he’s been doing. The guys a ratings chaser.

    1. Ratings… he doesn’t need anymore of those he’s already smoking whoever this guy is and literally his whole network combined…

    2. True. The sad fact of the matter is that people like the Tuck wouldn’t be peddling their wares if there weren’t a market for it. A lot of people are buying what he’s selling.

    3. No you are not paying attention. Tucker Never gave any medical advise. Watch the video again. Not what you think he said but what he actual said?

    1. @timo costa THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN IS JESUS CHRIST! (HERE IS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE OF JESUS CHRIST) JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS AND HE WAS BURIED AND HE ROSE AGAIN ON THE THIRD DAY BY FAITH IN GOD’S SON THE LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST ONLY SALVATION SHALL BE YOURS AND ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD IN HEAVEN WILL AWAIT YOU WHEN YOU DIE THE BIBLE JOHN CHAPTER 3 VERSES 16 THROUGH 21 AS WELL AS 1ST CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15 VERSES 1 THROUGH 5 THE BIBLE

    2. @Twix 77 THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN IS JESUS CHRIST! (HERE IS THE GOSPEL MESSAGE OF JESUS CHRIST) JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS AND HE WAS BURIED AND HE ROSE AGAIN ON THE THIRD DAY BY FAITH IN GOD’S SON THE LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST ONLY SALVATION SHALL BE YOURS AND ETERNAL LIFE WITH GOD IN HEAVEN WILL AWAIT YOU WHEN YOU DIE THE BIBLE JOHN CHAPTER 3 VERSES 16 THROUGH 21 AS WELL AS 1ST CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15 VERSES 1 THROUGH 5 THE BIBLE

    3. @David Blandin Trump was rejected many times by liberal Judges. Liberals & Democrats are terrified of Tucker Carlson because he tells the truth. This is not surprising. That Judge has no credibility.

    4. @Thomas KeoghFox News has been saying from day one to get vaccinated. Many of us will not be forced into it. We will not answer the door when a person has a needle in their hand saying you have not been vaccinated yet. It is a matter of choice. There should not be either you get vaccinated or you don’t work here or you can’t get in the ball game.

    1. @Koi Caine This is why ppl call democrats traitors. You’re arguing that U.S. sovereignty should be violated because ppl are tired of lockdowns and multiple yrs of fear mongering. “Same valuing security of OVER LIBERTY” that gets U.S. into foreign wars. This is deranged and you need to change the channel. Most the deaths from Covid are ppl 80 yrs + AND a comorbidity like obesity. THAT IS NOT THE CASE with ppl who die from adverse reaction to vaccine who can be otherwise young and healthy. I wish “Liberals” would stand by LIBERTY and stop with their sanctimonious madness because they have done nothing but divided the country by “Letting no crisis go to waste” to force collectivist ideals that ARE THE ACTUAL CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

    2. @13bustah THANK YOU. “LIBERALS” are just a cult of drug addled, arrogant, urban ninnies and boomers who don’t know how to look at multiple sources via the Internet. There is nothing “Liberal” about demanding censorship, lockdowns and vaccine mandates. What the FUQQ!

    3. @Lore Bay Internet proves that only ppl going viral for being crazy nut jobs with insurmountable amounts of cognitive dissonance are ppl who just cry about Fox News and keep projecting so they can ignore the fact that “ALL OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA” is insane and that’s the ONLY they consume.

    4. @Lore Bay “clever tongued” = actual intellect and caring about liberty. Unlike the left who just call themselves “liberal” then demand a global government just like George HW Bush to demand an end to all national sovereignty around the world because a fatty might die of a cold.

    5. @Mark Snot intellect, clever liars. look I’ve been watching, checking in with this fake news of a channel for the last 10 years. It is a sin and a shame what goes on in here at much of the time especially during the Obama years and 2019-2020, what some of these folks have done to create narratives of falsehoods twisting and turning, speaking loud and long to maime the minds of gullible folks. FOXfake is trash.

    1. CAPTAIN OBVIOUS !Says maybe now you should get Vacillated Little TOO Late For The Hesitated Who Died Taking Carlson’s Bull $hit

  2. I don’t know why anyone feels they have to defend themselves against Carlson. Anyone with a brain realizes he is a liar

    1. @jay 1988 Did you clowns have to run to your TV so it could tell you not to like Carlson? Just keep importing covid across the border so big pharma can keep fleecing you

    1. Unfortunately Rupert Murdock will never Fired those three faces of pure evil besides he fired diamond and silk oh they learn the hard way # FOR WHITES ONLY !

    1. Most of that “base that are so rabid are not in the stock market, can’t afford it. Again, all panic for the poor voters to continue to support rich Republicans who blatantly and clearly dont care about people other than themselves and their continued money. It does not “TRICKLE ” down. Just the word trickle is insulting. Why should conspiracy theory Republicans at the top gets loads of money off the backs of the Working Poor who then are told well you’ll get a trickle? Really you going to foam at the mouth and keep these people in power because you may or may not get a trickle, you don’t think these people are going to stop trickling little Leaks of money coming down to the Working Poor as efficiently as a master plumber?

    2. On Monday, Trumpholes were on here celebrating the DOW being down 800 points, as if it proved Biden was killing the economy. They’ve been awfully quiet now that it has gone back up 1,000 points.

    3. @D.A. Oh that’s true. The stock market goes up and down. A lot of the 90s were a mess for the stock market. Tying politics to a medical disease raging through the country is ridiculous. Ironically too, the base is complaining about not wanting to be told what to do by President Biden but they’ll accept suggestions from Fox News host and conspiracy theories is Gospel and a good idea to go about things. They’re not thinking for themselves then either. They’re being told what to do by a former presidential man who’s impeached twice and is pretty open about wanting to be an American dictator. All for his own purposes. And literally just all for his own individual selfish narcissistic purposes not to benefit the country or bring the rest of us any wealth or peace of mind.

    1. Freedom, without responsibility. There is no accountability. No need for thinking. Seems it doesn’t really matter, when many Trump followers seem to lack a conscience, just like Trump and the Republicans.

    2. He wouldn’t be able to even say that because the Chinese bioweapon strangled the breath out of its victims

    1. Exactly. These morons trying to deny covid while all the people they love on TV have either gotten vaccinated, gotten covid, or DIED.

  3. “The agenda is to get you vaccinated” and to that guy on the sick bed, it is a bad thing? Oh god!

    1. Playing to people’s fear works. The Republicans have figured this out a long time ago. Democrats needs to work and it’s messaging, or they’re going to lose the house and the Senate and possibly the presidency. Democrats need to become more direct in their messaging rather than try to be too intellectual.

    2. @Scout 71 yeah, you can tell by his facial expressions. You can’t tell if he’s confused or just constipated

  4. “Don’t save her, she don’t wanna be saved…” Hey they literally begging to die so let ’em… The only people I feel for are the kids and the allergic!

    1. Yes. My bank manager is allergic to the shot. Took one, hives everywhere, trouble breathing, emergency room. They told her not to take the second shot. So she’s masked up, etc.

    1. Please explain your comment? He closed the country down in time & probably saved millions of lives.

    2. Tell us more as you Marxist Democrats import Covid across our border as you wrote false reports to with hold the HCQ combo that could have saved tens of thousands of American lives.

  5. Why is Tucker giving advice on Vaccines? He’s not a Medical Expert. He just wants to create fear so his Ratings go up. The Companies that sponsor his Show are negligent too.

  6. I think they’re beginning to realise that less and less Republicans will be alive to vote in the future !

    1. What LOL? you can’t be serious. He is not even a journalist he is an opinion host msnbc a left-leaning outlet.

      It’s like calling Tucker Carlson a reporter, that’s not their job!

  7. Carlson knows full well what he’s doing: drawing attention and chasing ratings by being controversial. Even at the expense of people’s lives.

  8. Class action coming for Murdoch, that’s the only reason for the backflip. Murdoch and Fox News have blood on their hands.

    1. Their advertisers are losing their shirts in the market due to surging cases. They probably threaten to pull their ad buys.
