The anti-vaccine rhetoric delivered by Fox News mainly comes from the prime time personalities like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. The morning hosts of Fox & Friends are a bit all over the place. Steve Doocy normally urges viewers to get vaccinated. Brian Kilmeade tells them that it’s a personal choice. And Ainsley Earhardt acts as if she has never heard of COVID-19.On Friday, in an effort to attack Joe Biden’s new vaccine policy, the show welcomed Ben Shapiro. The Daily Wire founder went on to push companies to defy the new mandates.
Shapiro said of his company, “We’re going to use every method and resource at our disposal to defy the president’s unconstitutional order. The Daily Wire does have more than 100 employees but we won’t be enforcing Joe Biden’s unconstitutional and tyrannical vaccine mandate. We’ll use every tool at our disposal including legal action to resist.”

The Conservative pundit continued, “The point of mandatory vaccinations is not merely to protect those who are vaccinated. When it comes to measles, mumps and rubella, for example, children cannot be vaccinated until 1 year of age. The only way to prevent them from getting diseases is to ensure that those who surround them do not have those diseases. The same is true for children with diseases like leukemia, as well as pregnant women. Herd immunity is designed to protect third parties.”
