“I think there are very few people right now who are actually able to move the needle due to the increase in vaccines. I think there are so many people who take Tucker Carlson’s words too long and if he has to go on the air and say they are safe, they are effective, they will save your life, it will be a huge difference, ”says Oliver. Lesson, senior CNN reporter.
The lesson also compares Carlson’s ability to shape the legend to the heyday of Matt Drugge and the Drage Report.
“You also have to keep in mind that when Tucker Carlson says something, he creates a kind of market for this story,” Darcy says. “It’s almost like the new Drew in some ways. Like when Druzh was telling him that he was dominating, a story market was emerging that matched that story. And he kept the conversation going. Tucker Carlson does this in Fox. ”
Unfortunately, we shouldn’t expect Carlson to announce his vaccine, Darcy says, “It will never happen.”
Next on the show, David Wallace-Wells, writer at New York magazine and author Unusable land, joins Molly to share her insights into the Delta variant and the extreme climate events we’ve seen recently.
While Delta’s tension is appalling, “I’m in favor of spectrum optimism in this question,” says Wallace-Wells. “Where I start is that 90 percent of American seniors are fully vaccinated,” the White House said. And that means that given the age-related disease, the vast majority of the country’s overall risk of death has been eliminated. . ”
Wallace-Wells was alarmed by recent climate news, saying he “has a lot of climate scientists looking at the heat, weather and temperatures, the extreme weather over the last few weeks and seeing that they are completely out of range, have models and warn. that the work they have done in the past to predict the near future is inconsistent with the changes we see today. ”
However, he says, we need to remember how humanity can adapt, citing waste prevention and advances in technology, such as the reuse and decarbonization of water.
Finally, in the episode, Media Issues’ Angelo Caruson decodes its mystery conservative expert Ben ShapiroFacebook’s “genius” weapon. It all comes back to three things, says Carusone: money (Shapiro has spent $ 11 MILLION on the eye so far this year), content, and some good old-fashioned deception.
Shapiro runs away with it all, says Carusone, because of Facebook’s genuinely conservative bias.
