A new video from the Lincoln Project slams Fox News for spreading anti-vaccine propaganda amid the COVID pandemic, accusing the network of having “blood on their hands.”
“Is Rupert Murdoch trying to kill Americans?” the video begins. “His network is the leading voice against COVID vaccination.”
The video cuts to a clip of Fox News host Tucker Carlson asking on his show, “How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccine?”, followed by host Laura Ingraham describing the Biden administration’s door-to-door vaccination effort as “creepy stuff.”
The Lincoln Project notes that nearly all COVID deaths in the U.S. are now among unvaccinated people, before pointing out that Murdoch himself has gotten his COVID shot.
“Does anyone really think Tucker Carlson isn’t vaccinated?” the video wonders.
Still, “Murdoch’s Fox News continues to put Americans at risk by pushing anti-vax hysteria,” the narrator continues.
“It’s dangerous, immoral. Fox News is helping kill Americans.”
The video ends with a call for viewers to call their local television providers to demand that they drop Fox News from their lineup.
“It’s not about politics,” the video concludes. “It’s about life and death.”
