One of the Most Destructive Disinformation Campaigns I’ve Ever Seen: Chris Hayes Blasts Fox’s COVID Coverage [VIDEO]

The Fox Corporation understands just how dangerous COVID-19 is. In response, the company enacted a policy that required all employees to either be vaccinated or take a test each day. But during the network’s nighttime programming, there is plenty of vaccine hesitancy being pushed. The work offender, of course, is prime-time personality Tucker Carlson.

On his Tuesday night show, Chris Hayes took aim at both Fox and Carlson, calling their current programming, “one of the most destructive disinformation campaigns I’ve ever seen.”

The MSNBC host began, “Do not underestimate how many lies are being pumped into people watching these shows.” Referencing a study from Media Matters, he noted, “Fox News pushed a claim undermining vaccines during 99% of the days in the past six months.”

Hayes continued, “What makes all this so deeply cynical, aggressively cynical, is that while Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News is the source of so much of this, they have been running one of the most destructive disinformation campaigns I’ve ever seen.”

The host then turned to his competitor Carlson and his constant complaints about vaccine mandates:

“When they go on air, they undermine that exact message. Tucker, buddy, I’ve got news for you. The call is coming from inside the house. And I’ve got to ask, why don’t you have the courage of your convictions? You could go on air and you can say hey, my bosses are doing this and I don’t agree with it. But that would require the tiniest little sliver of moral integrity. I am sure there would be lots of YouTubers who would be happy to host you for your exit interview if you found the courage.”
