Fox News Mocks Life Saving CDC Coronavirus Guidelines as ‘Goofy’

For virtually all of the the past Year of COVID, Donald Trump and his Ministry of disinformation (aka Fox News) have downplayed the severity of the pandemic, guaranteeing that more people would be harmed and more families would grieve avoidable losses. And since he was evicted from the White House, the nothing has changed.

Laura Ingraham, Fox News, Goofy

There are studies that prove that watching Fox News actually increased coronavirus fatalities. And in a moment of weakness, Trump inadvertently admitted that he was the cause. That sort of arrogance and ignorance continues on a daily basis. For instance, on Friday Fox News host Laura Ingraham did a segment that will almost certainly produce more pain and suffering.

The segment began with a petty but offensive criticism of President Biden’s laudable efforts to preside over a Cabinet that “looks like America.” Most Americans consider that a worthy goal that allows every citizen to feel they are a part of this democracy. However, on Fox News it’s an aspiration that incites the mockery of the privileged white supremacist class. Here is how Ingraham and her guest, Raymond Arroyo (of the Eternal World Television Network), responded to Biden posting this tweet:

Ingraham: Biden tweeted out this picture, by golly. “A cabinet that looks like America. Masked and silent and separated.”
Arroyo: Government service should not be about externals, but about substance. Diversity is great, but what’s needed is true diversity of thought, experience. Producing a taxpayer funded Benetton ad is not necessarily reflective of diversity or America.
Ingraham: I’m just gonna come out and say it because I know everyone’s thinking it… This sitting six feet apart, is just goofy.

Everyone’s thinking it? Maybe everyone at Mar-a-Lago. But most of the nation – and more importantly, most of the world’s health experts – are surely thinking nothing of the kind. Ingraham’s reckless disparagement of the common sense CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines to mitigate viral transmission are typical of the Trumpian science deniers who are personally responsible for more than half a million preventable deaths. But what else should we expect from a propagandist who also just tweeted her ludicrous allegation that “President Biden is a serial liar.”

If anything is ripe for mockery, it’s that asinine tweet. Ingraham is aghast that Biden may have uttered a few words that weren’t completely accurate. But Ingraham is going bonkers about three alleged “lies” (which are questionable according to the Washington Post). However, Ingraham has never shown any concern about the 30,000 documented lies by her messiah Donald Trump. This whole affair is almost too preposterous to waste any time on. Except that it is purposefully misleading people in way that can result in untold anguish and death. Not that Ingraham or Fox News cares.

Fox News Spreads COVID Variant Disinformation, Downplays Risks, and Imperils Lives

Fox News is apparently not satisfied with a mere 550,000 American deaths due to the coronavirus. They are making it their mission to maximize the suffering and loss, even as hope for a return to normalcy arises with the efficient administration of vaccines by Joe Biden’s COVID Response Team. There’s a reason why studies show that watching Fox News increases coronavirus fatalities.

Fox News, Covid

Fox News, however, is obsessed with petty, egocentric matters of blame and/or credit. And naturally all of the blame is heaped on President Biden, while all of the credit goes to the former guy (Donald Trump). If Trump wants the credit for this horror, he can have it. In fact, he just inadvertently admitted that he’s guilty of hundreds of thousands of cases of negligent homicide. And he continues to foster policies and behavior that exacerbate the crisis.

Meanwhile, Trump’s PR Division and Family Jobs Program (aka Fox News) is similarly putting the lives of Americans at risk. The latest example of this aired Wednesday evening when Laura Ingraham anchored a segment devoted to disinformation about vaccines and new COVID variants (video below).

She began by making the preposterous assertion that Trump “burnished” the reputation of already respected medical experts like Dr., Fauci by putting them on his phony Coronavirus Task Force. She then accuses them of stabbing him in the back. So once again, Trump is the victim, poor baby.

Ingraham then says that the experts are now “blaming Trump for their own failures,” despite the fact that Trump himself said that he “almost always overturned” their “faulty recommendations.” Therefore, Trump is conceding that the tragic results that took the lives of more half a million Americans are wholly his responsibility.

So Ingraham turns to the thoroughly discredited “doctor” Scott Atlas, who almost all legitimate experts in infectious diseases repudiate as a kook. Atlas whines incoherently that “the people who criticize the policies that were implemented are responsible for the failures of the policies that were implemented.” Who the heck is he talking about? If Trump is the critic in that blather, then Atlas is claiming that Trump is criticizing his own policies and is blaming himself for their failure. That, of course, is nonsense. But if Fauci et al are the critics, then Atlas is claiming that they are blaming themselves for the failures of Trump’s policies.

Don’t hurt yourself trying to make sense of any of that unintelligible bullpucky. Ingraham goes on to malign the experts for being justifiably concerned about the emergence of more transmissible and deadlier variants. She mockingly rants that…

“The experts’ disinformation campaign is ongoing about COVID, even after vaccines. The variants! The variants are coming! The mutations! Gloom and doom!”

Ingraham (and Fox News and Trump and the right-wing GOP, QAnon, head-in-the-sand crowd) did last year when COVID was spreading uncontrollably, is again downplaying the fatal perils that this virus still poses. She sought to make her point by playing a video of the Director of the National Institutes of Health warning of variants more dangerous than the those already circulating, like the one from South Africa. Her on-screen graphics called his remarks “fearmongering.” But then she backed up her argument with a report about the vaccine’s efficacy with variants that only addressed those currently known. Which ignores entirely what the NIH Director had just said about new, unknown variants.

Ingraham closed by saying that her reason for doing this report was “to insure that this crowd is never taken seriously again.” In other words, ignore the people who know the most and have your best interests at heart. And once again her on-screen graphics told the story making the ludicrous claim that she was exposing the lies of the Media-Medical Cartel,” whatever the heck that is.

The entire segment featured a logo graphic that blared her campaign theme of “Shutting Down the COVID Crazies,” meaning Fauci, Biden et al. But what she – and Fox News – are shutting down are the lives of the people foolish enough to give credence to her dishonest and dangerous disinformation, along with all those unfortunate enough to encounter them.

Trump Inadvertently Admits He Caused Hundreds of Thousands of COVID Deaths

Having Donald Trump, a barely articulate. petulant crybaby, as president has produced innumerable instances of cringeworthy comments. Often his wrath caused him to say things that had very different meanings than what he intended. And Trump has continued his vengeance driven malaprops as ex-president. However, he has scaled up the idiocy quotient considerably.

Donald Trump, Coronavirus

On Sunday, CNN aired a special presentation of interviews with several of Trump’s top advisors on his Coronavirus Task Force (which was little more than a propaganda vehicle to promote Trump). On Monday Trump issued a lengthy and rambling response to the program that was rife with the infantile Trumpisms we’ve come to know and dread. It went something like this:

There’s a abundance of aberrant asininity in that tirade. It starts in the first sentence where Trump reveals that he actually does watch “fake news” CNN, if only to keep track of his former pandemic advisors, Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. Trump’s feelings were clearly hurt by the pair who he demeaned as “two self-promoters.” Which is rich coming from someone who famously plasters his name on everything and takes credit in the next paragraph for “saving the entire world.” Trump also accuses the doctors of “reinventing history,” another character defect that is more accurately attributed to Trump.

However, the most jarring part of that first sentence is Trump’s dismissal of what he calls “faulty recommendations,” that he “fortunately almost always overturned.” In other words, Trump is confessing that he rejected the advice of the experts that he hired to mitigate the deadly potential of the COVID pandemic. Therefore, Trump is conceding that the tragic results that took the lives of more half a million Americans are wholly his responsibility.

Trump has entirely absolved the others of blame. And since their recommendations were discarded by Trump personally, he is unselfishly taking all the “credit” for the horror that followed. For the record, the common sense, CDC approved recommendations that he overturned were replaced by his own favorite (albeit fraudulent) therapies that included injecting bleach, hydroxychloroquine, ultraviolet light, and herd “mentality” (sic).

This might be a good time to repeat that all of that was in the first sentence of Trump’s run-on statement. And it affirms the conclusions of a new study by a UCLA economist that “estimates that 400,000 people in this country died of COVID who could have been saved,” but for Trump’s ignorance, negligence, and deliberate malfeasance.

The rest of the statement was littered with lies, insults, and vain, undeserved tributes to himself. He bragged about having “developed American vaccines by an American President,” although he certainly had no role in developing the vaccines, and the first one approved (Pfizer) was developed in Germany without U.S. aid. He seemed to mourn only for those who suffered financial losses, rather than those who lost their health and/or lives.

Trump then went after Dr. Anthony Fauci for participating in a “fake interview” (whatever that means). Then Trump mocked the 80 year old doctor’s baseball throwing skills, as if that has anything to with with his medical expertise. It was just a cheap shot by childish loser. But it does make you wonder why every president since 1910 has thrown out at least one World Series first pitch during their presidency, with the exception of Trump. Trump also criticized Fauci for trying “to take credit for the vaccine,” which Fauci didn’t do. However Trump did take credit in the next sentence saying “I was the one to get it done.” It’s curious that Trump is so anxious to own the vaccine that he won’t promote to his dimwitted, anti-vax disciples, and which he got himself, but secretly.

Then Trump moved on to Dr. Birx, whom he labeled “a proven liar with very little credibility.” Birx has some serious mistakes and misjudgments to account for. However, they mainly involve her reluctance to tell the truth about Trump’s dishonesty and obstruction. Trump, meanwhile, lapsed into the pettiest of gossip about alleged private conversations that he can’t verify. And given his reputation as a pathological liar, nothing he says can believed without proof.

Trump’s whining statement is just further evidence of his bloated ego controlling his vindictive and vexatious outbursts. He has demonstrated his psychotic tendencies to lash out the people that he previously praised profusely when he hired them. They were always among “the best people” that he promised to surround himself with, but who he later disparaged viciously. They included top administration officials like General Jim Mattis, General John Kelly, General H.R. McMaster, John Bolton, Jeff Sessions, Anthony Scaramucci, and Rex Tillerson, to name just a few.

And let’s not forget the shining examples of bootlicking loyalty that Trump latched onto whose sterling reputations were scarred only by their criminal convictions of crimes against the United States. Among that crowd were Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, and Steve Bannon. Those “best people” all got pardons from Trump. Which only goes to show that the more you put Trump ahead of honesty, ethics, and patriotism, the farther you’ll go in Trump World.

Chinese Guest on Fox News Says Atlanta Murders are an Over-Hyped Ploy By Biden

Fox News has the clout and resources to book knowledgeable, credentialed guests to provide commentary on current events. Instead, they predictably seek out fringe characters with little to no qualifications, but who will obediently peddle Fox News propaganda.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Quite often Fox’s bookers glom onto guests with specific ethnic identities, but with opinions that are diametrically opposed to those of the ethnic group they are allegedly representing. And that’s despite Fox’s incessant and disingenuous condemnations of what they call “identity politics.”

On Friday Fox News hosted Ying Ma, a conservative columnist and the author of the novel, Chinese Girl in the Ghetto,” to discuss the spa murders in Atlanta (video below). Naturally, she began by immediately criticizing the Biden administration for “over-hyping” the massacre of eight innocent people, as if that’s possible. And while acknowledging that there is “real concern about racist attacks,” she diminished that concern because “it’s not the case that everybody is living in fear.” Okay, so let’s just move on and get back to important matters like Mr. Potato Head.

She continued with a rather bizarre set of recommendations for President Biden and Vice-President Harris that utterly sidestepped the issue:

“I would say there are two things the Biden administration can do. One is send Kamala Harris to Oakland, which is the city where she declared her candidacy for president, and ask her to just denounce loud and clear Black-on-Asian violence.”

Of course. Because the first thing a Fox News guest has to do after a white man murders multiple Asian women is to shift the topic to a completely unrelated crime story that ignores the subject she was brought on to discuss, but which conveniently maligns Blacks, a group that is at the top of the Fox News enemies list. She continued saying that…

“The second thing is actually to encourage all Chinese-Americans to come out and denounce China for the role that it has played in infecting the world with COVID-19. And along with that the Biden administration needs to be very firm in holding China accountable for having done this to America and having done this to the world.”

Curiously, Fox News has never demanded that all Caucasians denounce white America for the rapidly increasing violence against Asians. Or for the violent insurrection in Washington on January 6th. Or for the Oklahoma City terrorist bombing. Or for the multitude of mass shootings across America for decades. But for some reason, American-born citizens of Chinese descent are responsible for COVID-19 if they don’t denounce a country they may have never been to.

It’s also preposterous to suggest that the Biden administration needs to hold China accountable for how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the United States. It wasn’t China that downplayed the pandemic as either a hoax or the flu. It wasn’t China that ignored it as it spread across the U.S. It wasn’t China that fatally mismanaged efforts to mitigate transmission and distribute protective gear and vaccines. That was all Donald Trump – and, of course, Fox News.

This segment on Fox featured chyrons that attacked Biden and Democrats. One said falsely that “Biden Paints Dystopian Picture of Life for Asians.” And that was immediately followed by one that flagrantly politicized the matter saying that “Dems Exploit Atlanta Tragedy for Politics.” All of which affirms that the role that Fox News played in infecting Americans, resulting in more than 540,000 deaths so far, is undeniable.

Studies have proven that watching Fox News increases coronavirus fatalities. And sadly, they are still doing it. And in the process they are recruiting racially-based spokespersons who will blame the atrocities of white males on Democrats and other targets of Fox’s biases. It’s what they do.

Has Trump’s Influence on Fox News – and America – Dwindled to an Impotent Trickle?

It’s been two months since Joe Biden was inaugurated as President of the United States. In that time of national celebration and relief, Donald Trump has retreated to his Mar-a-Lago bunker, emerging only briefly for a speech at the Conservative Political Action Cult (CPAC), and a phone-in to Senior Fox News Trump-fluffer, Maria Bartiromo.

Donald Trump, Toilet, Bathrobe

Trump is either suffering a severe depression at having been rejected by millions of voters, or he’s he’s hiding from legal process servers and state prosecutors. And while he’s cowering in near obscurity, unable to tweet his pent up outrages, his grip on the political world is slipping away. This shift to irrelevancy is evident in how the media covers his recent remarks about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Trump spent months promoting the vaccine development and bragging about accomplishments that exist only in his mind. After which he clammed up and refused to encourage his cult followers to get vaccinated. This week that changed after prodding from politicians, the press, and even Dr. Fauci. “I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it,” Trump told Bartiromo. “And a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.” For some reason Trump seems to be proud that his voters are uniquely ignorant about the wisdom of being immunized.

Despite Trump’s sudden interest in endorsing the vaccine, his former confederates in the media are not falling in line. Tucker Carlson is doing extended segments casting doubts on the safety, efficacy, and necessity of vaccinations. Sean Hannity immediately began having doubts about the vaccine after Biden was inaugurated. Laura Ingraham, in a reference to public health experts, told her audience that “it’s time to retire or just ignore the control freaks.”

This was all summed up nicely in a clip from The Daily Show that revealed how “Fox News isn’t explicitly telling its viewers not to get vaccinated, it’s just questioning whether they should over and over again”:

Trump’s waning influence was clearly displayed in how Fox News reported his vaccine recommendation. Media Matters reports that…

“Trump’s remarks will have an impact only if his supporters hear them. And while his comments originally aired on Fox, that network — by far the most popular and influential among Trump voters — has largely ignored them since.

In the 36 hours following Trump’s vaccine endorsement, Fox devoted only about six and a half minutes to the remarks. Only a handful of programs covered the remarks; flagship ‘straight news’ broadcast Special Report and popular opinion shows The Five, Tucker Carlson Tonight, and The Ingraham Angle are among those that have not referenced the comments.”

By contrast, in the 36 hours after Biden’s commentary about “Neanderthal” Republicans who prematurely lifted mask mandates, Fox News ran about 1 hour and 20 minutes of coverage about the phony “scandal.” That’s twelve times as much coverage as allotted to Trump’s weak vaccine plug.

So apparently Fox isn’t jumping on Trump’s bandwagon on this life-or-death subject. And his formerly reliable suck-ups aren’t sucking quite as vigorously. Does this mean anything with regard to Trump’s forward prospects as a politician or a public figure. Who knows? But it surely doesn’t bode well for a former president and future felon who was never particularly well liked or respected in the first place.

Chief Fox News Anti-Vaxxer Tucker Carlson Pushes Deadly Pro-COVID Agenda

For a network that has been bleeding viewers for the past four months, you might think that Fox News wouldn’t want to see their audience shrink any further. Especially not due to viewers dying off from a deadly pandemic that they helped to exacerbate. But you would be wrong.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Coronavirus

On Monday night the Chief Fox News Anti-Vaxxer and Pandemic Promoter, Tucker Carlson, demonstrated just how determined he is to kill off as many of his dimwitted viewers as possible. He ran another in his series of coronavirus disinformation segments whose only plausible purpose is to convince his audience to ignore common sense health guidelines that preserve life. But then, Fox News has been doing that for nearly a year now.

Carlson began by dismissing the settled science that social distancing effectively mitigates the opportunities for viral transmission. He attributed that advice to a 19th century biologist whose work has been validated repeatedly in the intervening years but, according to Carlson, should be rejected just because it’s old (aka time-tested). Then Carlson got to the meat of his mendacious monologue that aimed to cast doubts on the efficacy of COVID vaccinations:

“This should prompt some pretty tough questions for our public health experts in this country. And one of those questions is: How effective is this coronavirus vaccine? How necessary is it to take the vaccine? Don’t dismiss those questions from anti-vaxxers. Don’t kick people off social media for asking them. Answer the questions. Especially now that the administration would like you to take this vaccine. As Joe Biden told you last week, you can’t celebrate the Fourth of July if you don’t.”

So Carlson is only “asking questions.” Never mind that these are questions that have been answered a thousand times by experts with far more credibility on the subject than a fatuous Fox Newser. All the evidence shows that the vaccines currently in use in the United States are safe and effective and critical to saving lives and returning to some degree of normality.

Still, in Carlson’s world the utterly disreputable, conspiracy-minded, anti-vaxxers must be paid attention to despite their having been exposed as crackpots long ago. What’s more, Carlson is joining his Fox confederates in distorting President Biden’s hopeful message of defeating the virus and safely enjoying gatherings with friends and family. The Foxies twisted that into an authoritarian dictate to submit to mandatory vaccination.

That ludicrous interpretation, however, exists only in the biases of right-wing deceivers like Carlson. It’s just another purposeful misstatement of fact that poisons the minds of his viewers. The result of those lies has produced a subculture of ignorance. Carlson noted that…

“When you look at the vaccination rates in certain states, it’s pretty clear that some people are not taking the vaccine on purpose.”

What Carlson isn’t mentioning is that the people he’s talking about are his own viewers who he has been lying to for months, along with others on Fox News and Donald Trump. Of course they’re skeptical. And their skepticism is fueling dangerous behavior that will surely result in more fatalities. According to a recent poll

“Nearly half of Republican men — 49% — say they won’t choose to be vaccinated if a vaccine is available to them […] Among those who said they supported Trump in 2020, 47% said they wouldn’t choose to be vaccinated. […] In contrast, 6% of Democratic men and 10% of Biden supporters said they wouldn’t get the shot. 25% of Black respondents, 28% of white respondents and 37% of Latino respondents said the same.

UPDATE: Late Tuesday Trump finally recommended that people get vaccinated (two months after he did, secretly).

What’s peculiar is that the vaccines that Carlson is maligning and portraying as unexamined and unnecessary are the same ones that Trump is now trying to take credit for. They’re the same ones that his boss, Rupert Murdoch, was vaccinated with way back in December. So since Carlson is so fond of asking questions, here a few for him:

Are you disputing your employer who clearly isn’t worried about the vaccine? Are you contradicting Trump, your political Messiah? Do you disagree with the doctors who are universally supportive of the vaccines and the science validating them? Do you really think people and society will be better off refusing to get vaccinated? Or do you just not give a damn how many people you kill? I’m just asking.

UPDATE: MSNBC’s Ari Melber did a segment on this with a supercut of Fox News shills saying how great the vaccine was when Trump was still in office.

GOP Chair Tweets Proof Biden Was Right About Trump’s COVID Lies 8 Months Ago

The Republican Party has devolved into nothing more than a culture war slogan dispenser, spending all of its time and energy contriving faux outrage and divisiveness. They have no discernible policies to promote and are relying on the cult appeal of Donald Trump to sustain them until the next election.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump Baby, Fake News

Consequently, The GOP’s Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) is focused tightly on critical issues like Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head. And they’re tired of hearing about all the dead Americans due to the COVID pandemic that Trump ignored and/or botched. Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress voted unanimously against the American Rescue Plan, the most popular legislation in generations.

This callous disregard for the welfare of the nation is integral to the Republican agenda going forward. But since they have no affirmative plans, they are reaching back to distort recent history and claim victories that exist only in their fevered imaginations. For instance, Ronna Romney McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee, tweeted Saturday morning that “As President Trump was delivering results on the vaccine, Joe Biden was sowing doubt about its efficacy…”

Let’s set aside that McDaniel is still referring to the former guy as “President,” but the current president as “Joe.” The more salient point is that there is nothing resembling the truth in that twantrum. What Biden actually said last July in the video that McDaniel posted is that…

“We’ve got to make sure vaccines are produced and distributed safely, efficiently, and fairly, with independent FDA transparency. And the full FDA public report made public. Because people are already saying ‘If we get a vaccine I’m not sure I’m going to take it. This guy’s lied to us about everything else.'”

Clearly President Biden was not sowing doubts about the vaccine. He was recognizing that the American people already had fully justifiable doubts about Trump’s honesty. All Biden was calling for was full disclosure of the data that would lead to the vaccine’s approval. The fact that so many people don’t trust Trump is what Biden was concerned about. And his remarks were intended to resolve any hesitancy to getting vaccinated, not sow doubts about it.

McDaniel was also wrong about Trump “delivering results on the vaccine.” He had done nothing productive other than inventing a PR campaign that he dubbed “Operation Warp Speed,” which was just another sham that accomplished nothing. In reality, last July Trump was still downplaying the severity of the pandemic, while boasting about phony “achievements”

Trump tweet

Trump was bragging about “doing so well” when the death toll for the coronavirus was at 150,000. That was horrible. But it’s more than tripled since then. And in light of that, McDaniel thought it would be useful to post a tweet that lied about Trump’s negligence and incompetence, while inadvertently affirming Biden’s honesty and foresight. Thanks, Ronna.

Fox News is ‘Over the 500,000 Dead’ from COVID, Demands More Trump Praise

Just when you thought you couldn’t be more nauseated by the callous insensitivity of cretinous Fox News Trump-fluffers, another one bursts through the basement floor to find a new and more disgusting low. They appear to be on an unholy mission to dissociate entirely from humanity. They can stop now. They’ve arrived.

Donald Trump, Mask, Fox News

On Friday morning’s episode of Fox and Friends, the “Curvy Couch” potatoes eagerly leapt into a segment aimed at disparaging the speech that President Joe Biden gave on Thursday night. He was addressing the nation’s current state with regard to the COVID pandemic. That speech was widely lauded for achieving a difficult balance between mourning the past and hope for the future.

Except, of course, on Fox News where it was predictably maligned by the usual suspects, including Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Mark Levin who called it “the most disgusting, propagandistic speech that a demagogue, even a politician, has ever given.” Hyperbole much?

Throughout the speech Fox News displayed messages begging their viewers to stay tuned for “live reactions from Tucker Carlson.”

However, the Fox regulars are going to have to try harder to exceed the heinous heartlessness of Fox “Friend” Brian Kilmeade. Here is what he had to say the morning after Biden’s compassionate consolation:

“We don’t need to go over the 500,000 dead, we had that moment. Let’s talk about the future moving forward. Every time he has a chance to praise the previous administration, he not only doesn’t praise, he kicks them in the groin.”

REALLY? Kilmeade thinks the nation should just “move forward” after having having lost more than half a million souls. Tens of millions of families are grieving. But in Kilmeade’s diseased brain their “moment” is over and that’s all they get. As if the pain has subsided and the prospect of dining out and getting haircuts will provide all the solace that’s needed now. WTF is wrong with him? And, by the way, his co-hosts who said nothing, and his bosses, Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, who allow this sort of garbage air every day.

What’s more, Kilmeade thinks that concern for our deceased brethren should be replaced by accolades to Donald Trump, the single person most responsible for the hundreds of thousands of fatalities, many of which were avoidable, but for his negligence, incompetence, and deliberate malfeasance. Kilmeade thinks it was Biden’s obligation to pay tribute to a remorseless Trump in a speech aimed at consoling a somber and fearful nation.

Kilmeade doesn’t give a damn about the casualties of the coronavirus, but he’s damn perturbed about a figurative kick in the groin to Trump, which actually didn’t exist in Biden’s speech at all. In fact, Kilmeade was so vexed by the Biden address that he made up numerous “offenses” and other reasons to ignore reality and attack those who are actually contributing to the healing. For instance, after disparaging Biden’s sincere attempts to unify a broken nation, he went after Dr. Anthony Fauci in an unhinged tirade that was replete with lies and purposefully distorted misrepresentations of Dr. Fauci’s comments over the past year:

“Can we stop praising Anthony Fauci, saying he is world renown? Everyone might know him, but I don’t know how many people should be listening to him. […] He has been wrong every step of the way.”

SERIOUSLY? And Trump was right? Trump, who said the coronavirus was no worse than the common flu? Trump, who politicized the pandemic that he claimed would magically disappear in a matter of days? Trump, who peddled quack cures like bleach and hydroxychloroquine and advocated “herd mentality” (sic)? Trump, who took no responsibility for the devastation he caused, and still doesn’t? Trump, who admitted that he downplayed the severity of the pandemic?

Yeah, that Trump. That’s who Fox News thinks should be celebrated in lieu of “wasting” more time consoling the aggrieved and honoring their memories. It’s just the latest loathsome commentary on a network dedicated to worshiping their cult leader. But if you expect this to be the rock bottom, you don’t know Fox News.

Fox News Faux ‘Experts’ Reject CDC Guidance For People Fully Vaccinated For COVID-19

The chasm between Fox News and reality continues to grow wider every day. Their hosts and guests are devoted to spreading flagrant falsehoods and easily refuted disinformation that contributes massively to the volume of sheer ignorance in America. But worse, it isn’t just idiocy-inducing, it’s dangerous, and even deadly.

Fox News, Covid

On Monday’s edition of Tucker Carlson’s White Nationalist Hour on Fox News (video below), he interviewed a frequent guest, Alex Berenson, whose primary credential for appearing on Fox is his facility for lying about subjects for which he has no knowledge or experience. In this case it’s the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a subject where studies have proven that watching Fox News actually increases fatalities.

Berenson’s prior Fox outings have seen him declaring that masks don’t work, asserting that lockdowns are ineffective and political, and advocating herd immunity by everyone deliberately getting infected. Were Berenson’s advice to be taken tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands more Americans would be dead. But that hasn’t stopped him from disgorging his anti-scientific blather, which Carlson eagerly agrees with.

Carlson introduced Berenson, noting that he was “baffled” by the new CDC guidance for those who have been fully vaccinated. Which might explain Carlson’s perpetual facial contortion. Berenson explained it to Carlson saying that the guidelines are “unrealistic” and that the vaccines themselves are phony:

“It is increasingly clear that the vaccines aren’t quite as effective as that 95% headline figure given. So the honest thing to do say is ‘Look vaccines aren’t 95% effective. They’re not gonna be the miracle that ends this tomorrow, or in a week or a month. We’re still gonna have to live with this on some level.'”

Berenson went on to offer the recklessly fatal advise that “You can drop a lot of the nonsense that we’ve been telling you need to do for the last year,” and that the CDC’s guidance is “totally unrealistic.” To which Carlson replied, in a moment of unintended self-awareness, “Yes, well, lying begets lying.” And who would know that better than Carlson?

Berenson has degrees in economics and history, but nothing relating to medicine or healthcare. Yet he he is presented as an expert on infectious diseases and pandemic management. His shoddy analysis contradicts doctors and epidemiologists with decades of actual relevant experience. But more troubling is that the Fox babble breeds public reluctance to get the vaccine that will not only protect them and their families, it will put the whole nation on a path to normality as virus transmission recedes and variants are suppressed.

Berenson and Carlson pretend to be interested in people being able to live more normal lives, but what they propose will only make that less likely, and only after more tragic loss of life. Why anyone would listen to Berenson is beyond comprehension. Last October he tweeted that projections of “500,000 US #Covid deaths by spring” was an example of the experts being “wrong over and over.”

Berenson may have a point. The actual number to date is more than 525,000, and it isn’t even Spring yet. That’s the sort of “expertise” that Fox News viewers are being fed on a daily basis. It’s a diet of dangerously ignorant lies driven by right-wing politics and ratings. And the sad part is that these cretins simply don’t care how many people suffer due to their egos and greed.

For good measure, in the same program Carlson displayed his rank bigotry by complaining about essential workers being prioritized for vaccine distribution. What bothered him about this is that many people in “essential” occupations are racial and ethnic minorities. Carlson concluded, therefore, that white people (who are currently way over-represented among those vaccinated) would be adversely affected. He called it “eugenics.” And aside from this being a disgusting display of overt racism, it’s also hypocrisy on a grand scale. After all, he doesn’t believe the vaccine is actually effective or needed. So what’s he bitching about? Other than his perception that people of color are being treated fairly for once.

Texas Governor Whines to Fox News, Blames Biden, After Recklessly Revoking COVID Rules

Much of the country is heaving a sigh of relief as President Biden’s program for increasing the availability of vaccines and the administration of vaccinations has resulted in fewer infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. But that real world sentiment isn’t seeping into the fallacy-sealed craniums of Donald Trump’s glassy-eyed cultists.

Fox News, Covid

On Thursday morning the governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, visited Fox News for a typically lie-riddled rant wherein he sought to justify his risky abandonment of all COVID related regulations in the state. Local health officials, as well as the CDC, immediately condemned Abbott’s edict as “premature” and “reckless.” Experts overwhelmingly agree that maintaining the practices of social distancing and mask wearing is necessary to overcome the coronavirus and return to a state of normality. So naturally, Abbott dismisses the experts and the science in favor of awkwardly shifting blame to Biden. He told Fox News that…

“The Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into our communities who had COVID. The Biden administration was spreading COVID in South Texas yesterday because of the lack of constraint, of testing and quarantining people who come across the border illegally. The Biden administration was exposing Texans to COVID. That is “Neanderthal” approach to dealing with the COVID situation.”

Abbott’s brazen dishonesty puts him on par with the former Liar-in-Chief, Donald Trump. The Border Patrol is processing asylum requests according to the law, and the law hasn’t changed in the past six weeks. So nothing about that can be attributed to the Biden administration. What’s more, it’s interesting to note that Abbott is asserting that Texans are now facing greater exposure to the coronavirus, but he’s still eliminating the safeguards that would protect his constituents.

However, Abbott’s lies are even worse when taking into account the most recent COVID data in the state as it relates to immigration. Local officials reported that…

“Since the City [of Brownsville] started testing the migrants on January 25, there has been 6.3% of positive cases. The Cameron County positivity rate is 13.8%.”

So immigrants are testing positive at a lower rate than native Texans. The positivity rate statewide is 12.7%. And new cases rose 27% in the past week. These statistics show not only that Abbott is purposefully lying, but they also show the foolishness of his policy to remove the restrictions and allow the virus free rein to infect – and kill – more people in a state that is already near the bottom with regard to COVID cases and fatalities.

One can never underestimate the callousness and cruelty of power-mad Republicans like Abbott. After all, he has already gotten his vaccination, and he lives in a highly secure mansion where he doesn’t have to mingle with the riff raff he rules over, and who he is forcing to live in a more dangerous world. Just like his colleague “Cancun” Ted Cruz. That’s business as usual for the GOP (Greedy One Percent).
