Fox News falsely reported that Covid-19 vaccine kills people? That is the clear suggestion made by MSNBC Medical Contributor Dr. Vin Gupta, Associate Assistant Professor of Health Metrology at the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME.)
In a Tuesday morning appeared on Morning Joe, Dr Gupta opened his appearance by calling for calm and noting that there is more good news about Covid-related deaths and hospitalizations than at any other time. He also suggested that the nation’s health and public health experts focus less on masks and more on reaching the unvaccinated.
Willie Geist later noted that there appeared to be a noticeable shift in vaccine coverage at Fox News, saying, “there was a big turning point yesterday, something happened in the interior set, I guess at Fox News, this is important because it’s a completely different media ecosystem where they’re in public launch, multiple servers, including Sean Hannity, say I got vaccinated, you should get vaccinated, I believe in science, we need to do this. “
Dr. Gupta did not object in his answer to Geist. “As for your views on Fox News, if I could, I think they’re realizing that they are – that they are potentially criminals to put out potentially murderous misinformation.”
“At this point, saying not to get vaccinated, which some anchors continue to question or introduce some uncertainty about whether you should get vaccinated, or whether vaccination is safe. Death-related or not, for example, there are some very famous anchors that continue to do that,” he continued. “I think they realize that they can be held accountable in court. It’s really putting out misinformation that harms people. “
In Monday, Steve Doocy, John Roberts, Dr. Mark Seigel, and Hannity encourage viewers for either vaccination or very serious about Covid-19. Tucker Carlson continued “questioning” seems designed to undermine trust in vaccines, public health, and medical professionals, encouraging his viewers come Not get medical advice from television.
