Even as voluntary COVID-19 vaccine distribution has been well underway across the country, Fox News has run into trouble with some of its central figures, including Tucker Carlson, who is accused of discouraging facts about the vaccine. The accusations have prompted The Lincoln Project to launch a new ad calling for Fox News to be taken off the air.
As defined by their website, the Lincoln Project aims to meet “two stated objectives. The first was to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box. The second was to ensure Trumpism failed alongside him. As we have seen, our fight against Trumpism is only beginning. We must combat these forces everywhere and at all times. Our democracy depends on it.”
Today, the Lincoln Project has released a new ad entitled “Fox is Killing Us,” where they opened the video asking “Is Rubert Murdoch trying to kill Americans?” Characterizing Fox News as the “leading voice against covid vaccination.”
The ad highlights a Tucker Carlson segment where Carlson simply questions “How many Americans have died after taking the covid vaccine?” Responding with a disputed fact that “all COVID deaths in the US are now among unvaccinated.”
The ad even pulls into question if Carlson himself is vaccinated and even Murdoch is as well. Adding that Fox’s coverage of the vaccine is “Anti-vax hysteria,” as well as “dangerous, immoral, Fox News is helping kill Americans.”
The Lincoln Project like many others has now called for every American to call their cable provider and request Fox News is taken off the air, furthering the monopoly Liberal media has on the media industry.
Although Fox News has started calling for viewers to get vaccinated, celebrities such as Sean Hannity have also begun to encourage viewers to get the vaccine. But the person progressives love to hate the most, Tucker Carlson, has not given in to the mainstream narrative of mass vaccination and even called President Biden’s (D) vaccine proposal “the greatest scandal in my lifetime.”
