Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “WATCH: Fox News Guest Gets Zero Pushback After Calling Covid a ‘Hoax,’ Peddling Anti-Vaccine Rhetoric”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Fox News guest Maj Toure, the founder of “Black Guns Matter,” referred to Covid-19 as a “hoax” and peddled anti-vaccine rhetoric on Fox News Primetime, but got zero pushback for those comments from the show’s anchor, Lawrence Jones.

Jones was interviewing Toure about a tweet by liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, in which he suggested that the Covid-19 vaccines should be withheld from Texas after Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) announced he was lifting the state’s mask mandates and business restrictions.

“First of all,” Toure began, “Michael Moore is a weirdo” — an opinion that seemed to be shared by many, many critics on Twitter. “He’s a weirdo and he’s wrong.”

America had been dealing with the pandemic for a year, Toure added, praising Texas and Mississippi for ending their Covid restrictions, Florida for hosting last week’s CPAC event, and Fox News for sponsoring it.

“So, Maj, I gotta ask you this,” Jones said, “There are some people that are not against wearing masks. They are not against staying at home. But what the governor is saying — he’s not telling people not to wear a mask. He’s saying, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to. If you want your business to flourish, then you can open it up. If you want to keep it closed, then you can do that as well. It seems like a pretty simple idea.”
