The anchors on Fox News have been pushing vaccine hesitancy for months now. There are a number of different reasons. The government shouldn’t have control of your body. Putting something in your body should be a personal choice. The vaccine might not prevent you from actually getting COVID (it will just keep you from being hospitalized or dying).
On Monday, Fox lost one of their excuses when the FDA fully approved the Pfizer vaccine. And the network is not pleased. Fox anchors quickly pivoted to complaining about the speed with which the vaccine was approved.
Host Dana Perino told viewers, “FDA just giving full approval to Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, it’s the first vaccine to get that full approval and in record time too, that has critics asking if the process was rushed. Was it?”
Of course, the host did not name who the critics were. But the ball will now be in the court of people who claim that have not yet taken the vaccine because they were waiting for it to be approved.
