If you are like Trump and “learn everything you need to know from Fox News,” you might consider suicide. Misinformation is a danger not only to your future and the future of America; it is a danger to your very existence.
Reject any illusions you have that Fox is a legitimate news or information network. Its sole purpose is to make you believe what they want you to believe, and that is primarily any moronic babble which comes from Trump’s mouth or his thumbs.
His failure related to the coronavirus will never be forgotten or forgiven. Ignoring scientific fact for more than two months delayed our nation’s response to the coming pandemic and has cost lives. However, Trump, his failed party, and Fox continue attempts to misdirect the truth.
In another effort to save Trump’s humongous derriere, fake journalist, Tucker Carlson, allowed a fallacious video, produced by two doctors who own an ‘Urgent Care’ facility in California, on his pitiful broadcast. They claimed that the ‘coronavirus is not that serious.’ Naturally, legitimate medical experts adamantly criticized the doctors and Fox for airing misinformation.
The only truth in the statements by these two greedy doctors is that the coronavirus is “similar to the flu.” Of course it is, but they are conveniently eliminating the most important fact: it is far more contagious than the flu, and about one-million Americans have been infected in just a few months, and the death toll in the U.S. is nearing 60,000.
Fox is complicit with Trump in a loss of life greater than what might have been if they took this virus seriously in January.
So, if you watch Fox, stop wasting time and end your miserable life. Eventually this fake news network will kill you with lies: it’s just a matter of time.
