It’s not often that you see a CNN anchor use words like these to address a Fox News anchor.
CNN’s Jake Tapper told Fox News host Neil Cavuto to “stay strong” after the latter received death threats for begging listeners to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
Cavuto recently begged his audience to get the shot, saying, “Do so for those around you.”
“A quick note from us here at The Lead,” Tapper remarked on Friday’s episode of his CNN program, according to Breitbart. “We don’t often mention our competitors, but the Fox channel anchor opposite us, Neil Cavuto, has been in the news. We just wanted take a moment to say a couple of things about Neil.”
Tapper continued: “Neil is a survivor. He has multiple sclerosis, he has had open-heart surgery, he beat stage four cancer, and he is now fighting COVID. Neil recently talked about the importance of vaccines on-air, precisely to protect people like him who have compromised immune systems.”
“Sadly, many in the audience watching have been lied to about vaccines by others,” Tapper added. “Neil has received death threats for his simple, logical, science-based call for vaccinations. And Neil Cavuto is a gentleman. Neil Cavuto does not deserve that. Stay strong, Neil. We wish you health and a long, long life.”
Here, Tapper tapped into his softer side. It’s nice to see these anchors act in a kind and professional manner. It’s a rare occurrence, but a welcome one.
