A recent study by the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago that focused on Coronavirus Coverage on the Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson nightly shows on Fox News found that 30 percent of the viewers who watched the misinformation about the severity of COVID 19 displayed on the Hannity program during the first days of the Public Health Emergency (he has since taken it more seriously since Trump started to) developed the illness and 21 percent died compared to those who viewed the Carlson hour.
Forget the Angel of Death. Sean Hannity may have rightly earned the title The Angel of the Coronavirus with his cavalier fringe Pro-Trump anti-science dismissive attitude towards COVID 19 the first days of the emergency in this country.
This should be a lesson to people that words do kill and people need to be careful with what they say.
People should follow the below chart when choosing their news sources in addition of course to the Blog for Arizona.
According to the chart, Fox News is not the most reliable source of information.
To be fair, the people that composed the chart do not think MSNBC is reliable in some cases either.
People would be better off choosing from among those center-left and center-right new sources listed below:
- The Christian Science Monitor
- The Economist
- The Economist
- The Wall Street Journal
- ABC, CBS, and NBC News.
- Your local paper
People should note that CNN and NPR, two news-media outlets that the 2016 Popular Vote Loser routinely calls Fake News, are regarded as among the most reliable journalistic sources by the people who constructed the chart.
The people who watch Fox at night should save themselves, leave the island and rejoin the reality the majority of the planet lives in.
Do not let Sean Hannity, the Angel of the Coronavirus, get you when he goes back to his fringe ways.
