COVID-19 Updates, Dark Side Edition

1 in 500 Americans have died from COVID-19

Fox News has recently undermined or downplayed vaccinations repeatedly, despite evidence that the vaccines are safe and effective. One thing probably has something to do with the other, no?

This despite the fact that Fox follows COVID protocols - masks required unless you are vaccinated. So they protect themselves yet preach to their viewers that vaccines are a liberal conspiracy! That’s messed up.

The Pandemic Surprise

The big surprise of the pandemic—the one thing that nobody saw coming—was the resistance to the vaccines. This was a failure of imagination. No one imagined that 30 percent of the country could watch 674,000 of their neighbors die and still refuse to take a free, life-saving vaccine.”

This is especially depressing, given the hope that existed back in December 2020/January 2021 that we might, finally, be coming out of the COVID nightmare with vaccines on the horizon. Not to mention the huge rush to get a vaccine when they were first released. Boy were we wrong.
