Fox News continues its inhumane behavior as its narrative and messaging have likely caused the lives of many in its audience.
Fox News is Damage Inc.
The proof that Fox News cares nothing about its viewers is there for all their viewers to see if they decide to open their eyes. And Chris Hayes did a great job in pointing it out.
"For the past nine months or so, Rupert Murdoch owned media entities have by and large waged a war against public health and the scientific consensus on containing the coronavirus on Fox News and elsewhere," Chris Hayes said. "They've been playing down the virus and peddling just outright lies and pushing junk science and elevating cranks all of which has tangibly materially contributed to behavior that has made the pandemic worse. And what makes it all the more infuriating is that as we have noted, while Fox hosts have been dismissing the experts and suggesting lockdowns don't work and ridiculing people that avoid the office and follow public health guidelines, many Fox News employees have been working remotely literally at the same time."
As Hayes points out, it is worse as it has reached the danger zone with the release of the COVID-19 vaccine.
"Now we arrive at the question of the vaccine," Chris Hayes said. "Last night one of Rupert Murdoch's minions went on air to coyly just ask questions and rail against the offensive pro-vaccine propaganda that's been propagated by all corners of the media and the elite consensus that you should get the vaccine quote, 'On the question of the coronavirus vaccine our leaders are definitely not pro-choice.' Their view is do what you're told and don't complain."
Later Hayes would point out that one knows Fox News is just a misinforming mouthpiece described by its own lawyer.
"Fox News' own lawyers have argued that this particular Rupert Murdoch minion is not a provider of the news as we know it," Hayes said. "Or facts as we commonly understand them and his audience knows this just a remarkable thing for your own attorney to say about you."
To be clear, Rupert Murdoch received the vaccine. They take care of themselves as they harm their listeners.
