Leftist propaganda media outlets continue to target Tucker Carlson as being responsible for deaths because of the content of his show.
“ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s ‘The View’ that [Carlson’s] ‘irresponsible’ commentary on coronavirus vaccines will cause ‘people to die,'” reports Breitbart News.
Hostin cited no evidence of any kind.
Carlson’s comments were directed at the policies surrounding the vaccines. “At some point, no one’s asking this, but everyone should be. What is this about? If vaccines work, why are vaccinated people still banned from living normal lives? Honestly, what’s the answer to that?” asked Carlson. “It doesn’t make any sense at all. If the vaccine is effective, there is no reason for people who have received the vaccine to wear masks or avoid physical contact. So maybe it doesn’t work, and they’re simply not telling you that. Well, you’d hate to think that, especially if you’ve gotten two shots, but what’s the other potential explanation? We can’t think of one.”
Hostin’s response was classically leftist in that she appealed to feelings, not facts, and that she played into identity politics:
I’m disappointed there’s this significant amount of hesitancy. I agree with you, Whoopi, the reason people are getting vaccinated and still need to be cautious is because of the growing number of white male Republicans that continue not to want to wear their mask or get vaccinated because they consider it some sort of freedom ride. I think people like Tucker Carlson are being very irresponsible by sending out this messaging, by sending out the message that maybe the vaccines just don’t work. That is irresponsible. It’s misinformation and it’s causing, I think, in the long run, people to die. People need to be more concerned about the virus, more scared of this virus than the vaccine. Everyone knows now that I lost both of my in-laws. Manny lost both of his parents to this virus, two doctors, healthy doctors. You’ve got to get vaccinated. That’s what’s most important. To protect each other and yourself.
That’s a lot of fear, accusation, and speculation, Ms. Hostin. But very little logic and evidence.
And by “little,” I mean none.
