Fox Continues to Endanger Its Viewers: Tucker Fully Embraces Dangerous Conspiracy Theory That Could Could Cost Lives
On Tuesday night, Tucker leaned heavily upon his lifelong study of virology, immunology, public health, and genetics, to declare that the COVID-19 vaccinations probably don’t work.
Let’s just build a base here from which we can all agree before we dismantle Tucker in the manner that he so richly deserves. Life is complicated, medicine is complicated, hell – your phone is complicated, and it’s a fact that it’s near impossible to be 100% certain regarding the science around COVID-19. However, while we keep those fractional doubts in our minds, one of the few things we can say with 100% certainty is that COVID-19 has killed over half a million Americans. Other than that established fact, there are still a lot of unknowns involving a disease that has been around less than 18 months.
For instance, the medical community simply doesn’t have enough data to “know” with any medical certainty whether people who are fully vaccinated can still transmit the virus. Thus, given that scientists don’t know whether the vaccinated can still infect people, but do know that COVID kills people, scientists are asking vaccinated citizens to miss on the side of caution and continue wearing masks just in case one can still spread the disease. We are asked to do so because – unless one is a MAGA, wearing a mask is hardly difficult or a sacrifice. Admittedly, if one is a MAGA, masks are seen as akin to having ones’ hands nailed to the cross one bears for “allowing the election to be stolen election.”
Lest you think this is too obvious to even say, you haven’t been forced to listen to Tucker Carlson, the star of the network that must have set some kind of record for being wrong about COVID at every single turn. One would think that they would have to get something right by accident at some point. No, they have yet to get anything right.

Tucker Carlson cannot believe one should still wear a mask after vaccination.
“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? 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.”
Having planted the seeds of doubt, Tuck just went full anti-vax, as if his viewers needed official permission:
“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.”
Tucker? It is on the fcking website! The CDC’s explanation is ON THE WEBSITE, NO ONE IS RELYING ON YOU TO THINK OF ONE, maybe you should ask someone that can think of one.
Not only is it a good idea to rely on experts, but it is also not all that hard to grasp from a common-sense perspective. Vaccinations help at the cellular level. People still “ingest” the virus, somehow, and the virus can still reproduce in the body (though not as efficiently), and you can still pass that virus on to the next person, even though the vaccine allows you to avoid getting sickened from it and dying.
Tucker? Have you ever gotten a flu shot? A flu shot is a vaccine. If you run into the flu after having had a flu shot, don’t you think you can still pass it on?
Fox News should be sued out of existence for the disinformation that they have spewed through their cables that has led to so much death.
