Conservative PAC The Lincoln Project is out at the moment with a brand new advert (under) titled “Fox is Killing Us” that assaults Fox Information for its frequent anti-vax stance in the course of the COVID pandemic.
The 60-second spot begins with a shot of Rupert Murdoch—the Australian-born media mogul who controls Fox Information—together with inventory footage of a hospitalized girl and a person getting vaccinated. “Is Rupert Murdoch attempting to kill People? His community is the main voice towards COVID vaccination,” an announcer declares. Cue a clip of Fox Information anchor Tucker Carlson asking, “What number of People have died after taking the COVID vaccine?” adopted by soundbites of different Fox Information personalities slamming the Biden Administration’s vaccination marketing campaign.
“The People who’re dying from COVID,” the announcer continues, “are virtually all not vaccinated. Rupert Murdoch was vaccinated. Does anybody actually assume Tucker Carlson isn’t vaccinated? However Murdoch’s Fox Information continues to place People in danger by pushing anti-vax hysteria. It’s harmful. Immoral. Fox Information helps kill People. Name your native tv supplier”—the logos of AT&T, Constitution Communications, Comcast, Dish and Verizon flash on-screen—“and inform them to drop Fox Information. It’s not about politics; it’s about life and demise.”
As Michael M. Grynbaum, Tiffany Hsu and Zolan Kanno-Youngs of The New York Times reported on Tuesday, “Fox Information has confronted heavy criticism in current days over its vaccine protection, together with a denunciation on the Senate ground and accusations of hypocrisy after a memo revealed that its personal staff can be allowed to go maskless within the workplace if vaccinated.” Because the Instances and different shops have famous, some Fox Information personalities have these days been endorsing COVID vaccination whereas others proceed to precise skepticism.
