Several Fox News hosts include Sean Hannity recanted their disinformation campaigns on COVID-19 vaccines on Monday as the network faces criticism for misinformation on the virus, safety measures, and vaccinations.
He urged viewers to “research like crazy” and come to a decision on the vaccine with their medical provider.
“Take it seriously. You also have a right to medical privacy, and doctor-patient confidentiality is also important,” he stated. “And it absolutely makes sense for many Americans to get vaccinated. I believe in science, I believe in the science of vaccination.”
In a Daily Beast op-ed, early this month, former network executive Preston Padden, who worked under Rupert Murdoch called Fox “poison for America,” blamed it for fueling vaccine hesitance, and said it caused “unnecessary” deaths.
