Each night, Tucker Carlson pushed vaccine hesitancy on his Fox News show. But it is very likely that Carlson and all of his colleagues at Fox have gotten their shots. The company they work for has a pretty strict vaccine policy.Still, Carlson and other hosts on Fox seem to be ok with their viewers getting sick after taking their advice. During his Sunday show, Jim Acosta called on the Fox host to be honest with his viewers.
Acosta said to his guest, Dr. Jonathan Reiner:
“My sense is that he’s almost certainly been vaccinated, and I would be shocked if he wasn’t boosted. But yet he hosts this continuing parade of clowns that propagate this nonsense that, you know, that somehow vaccines are harmful or that this is somehow a liberal plot to some subjugate the masses. And what he doesn’t tell his viewers is that virtually everyone dying in the United States right now of Covid-19 is unvaccinated.
And let’s just say right now a challenge to Tucker Carlson as we’re talking about this from yours truly and from Dr. Reiner: Tucker Carlson, tell the American people if you have been double vaccinated and boosted.
We know the truth, we know you have been, but just tell us. Tell everybody the truth. That’s all we ask”
