Fox News is a very unserious network. Despite having the word news in their title, the network tends to run away from covering current events. The anchors essentially give commentary on a number of issues meant to enrage middle-aged white people.
So when a vaccine PSA featuring Big Bird appeared, it was easy to tell that it would be the number one issue on Fox for at least a week. On Monday, Harris Faulkner and Texas Congressman Chip Roy demanded to know who was behind the propaganda.
An irate Roy proclaimed, “I’m calling on my colleagues to stand strong and not fund a government that’s going to go do propaganda on our kids and put these unconstitutional mandates in place.”
Faulkner then jumped in:
“I am curious to know what part of the government actually got involved with a 6-foot-7 fake yellow bird telling children not to go to their pediatricians, their doctors, with their parents and work this out, but do exactly what the fake bird did. I mean, I think that’s a fair question. That’s what we have all been telling each other. Check with your doctor, see if it’s the right thing for your child.”

I'm not going to take any money from a company that's going to engage in that kind of propaganda. Period. pic.twitter.com/T5NJBSC6ej
