Fox Business’ Neil Cavuto has always been more of a straight newsman than a network personality. He tends to avoid the bombastic opinions you might hear from a Laura Ingraham or Tucker Carlson.
Cavuto recently came down with a case of COVID-19. The host has a long history of health issues including cancer and heart disease. His battle with the illness wasn’t a severe one, though, thanks to his decision to get vaccinated.
Once he came back on air, Cavuto made an impassioned plea for viewers to get vaccinated. Not surprisingly, this lead to hate mail which the Fox Business host read during his Tuesday show.
“It’s clear you’ve lost some weight with all this stuff. Good for you. But I’m not happy with less of you. I want none of you. I want you gone. Dead. Caput. Fini. Get it? Now, take your two-bit advice and deep-six it, and you!”
Some notes were supportive. “Thank you Neil,” read one such email. “I don’t care about left vs. right at the moment. The BS politics to date have killed a lot of people. Please do whatever you can, and all of us do the same. Let’s stop as many unnecessary deaths. Get vaccinated now.”
