Stephen Colbert Tears Into Fox Information Anti-Vaxxers With A Damning Comparability
Stephen Colbert tore into Fox Information on Tuesday for airing anti-vaccination conspiracy theories and different coronavirus misinformation at the same time as surveys confirmed that many within the right-wing community’s core demographic have been refusing the shot.
“It’s no shock,” Colbert stated. “It’s proper there in Fox Information’s slogan: ‘We report. You simply died.’”
Colbert performed a clip wherein “Fox & Buddies” host Brian Kilmeade stated selecting to not take the COVID-19 vaccine was all about freedom and urged that individuals who refuse the jab and don’t put on a masks are similar to individuals who get pleasure from cliff-diving.
“You don’t should verify with me,” Kilmeade stated. “It appears a bit harmful, however I’m not gonna decide you.”
Colbert tweaked that comparability.
“That analogy does work for those who first strap that cliff-jumper to a gaggle of previous individuals,” he stated.
