As coronavirus surges across the country, Fox propagandists are fighting
new efforts to slow its spread

A coronavirus tsunami is bearing down on the United States. Nearly every
state is experiencing uncontrolled spread. With COVID-19 cases and
hospitalizations at record levels, medical facilities are strained to the
breaking point and considering how to ration care. More than 1,400 deaths
from the virus were recorded Wednesday, an already dire figure that will
surely worsen. And President Donald Trump seems to be paying no attention
at all even as his White House is experiencing an outbreak, except to
demand credit for the development of a vaccine whose distribution is being
imperiled by his refusal to yield the election to President-elect Joe
Biden.

Fox News’ propagandists have gotten exactly what they wanted. They sought
a focus on reopening businesses -- even the most high-risk ones, like
restaurants, bars, and gyms -- rather than crushing the virus; a logjam
on federal aid to push states into ending economic restrictions; a culture
war against widespread use of facemasks; and the sidelining of public
health experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci in favor of their own regular guest
Scott Atlas, a radiologist whom Trump put on the White House coronavirus
task force because the president liked his Fox hits and who reportedly
recommended letting the virus rip through the country. Thanks to their
unrivaled influence over the president, that’s precisely what happened.

Now, as the horrific consequences of adopting Fox’s advice are coming into
focus, the very same people are poisoning the well against efforts by
public health experts and Democratic leaders to get the virus back under
control and limit a cataclysmic loss of American lives. The Fox
propagandists are lashing out at proposed restrictions, often without
bothering to acknowledge that these recommendations are coming against the
backdrop of a calamitous resurgence of the pandemic. Their rhetoric will
make it more difficult for Democratic governors to successfully implement
those recommendations; for governors in other states to take action; and
for Biden to roll back the tide of deaths when he finally takes office in
January.

Hedging on the likelihood that Biden overcomes Trump’s legal challenges
and becomes president, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson have both used
their shows to warn against the possibility that he might try to implement
a nationwide “lockdown” and promote mask usage. Studies suggest that the
spring business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders saved millions of lives
and prevented up to 60 million infections in the U.S., and there is broad
expert consensus that face masks help prevent the spread of the virus.

On Monday, after Biden announced his COVID-19 task force, Ingraham claimed
that “the key lesson from today is that Biden's COVID plans are not driven
by science” because “lockdowns, masks, none of it seemed to stem the
virus.” She went on to say, “The American people didn't vote to lock
themselves down and I believe they will resist any such effort.” In a
follow-up segment, Dr. Ramin Oskoui, a cardiologist who regularly appears
on Ingraham’s program to spread misinformation about the coronavirus,
claimed that “the science actually says that lockdowns may actually delay
herd immunity and may delay countries coming back.”

Ingraham returned to the subject on Tuesday. After airing a comment from
epidemiologist and Biden task force member Dr. Michael Osterholm on the
need to “lockdown to drive this infection level to a place where we can
actually control it,” she turned to Atlas for his response. The White
House coronavirus adviser, who apparently has plenty of time to do
interviews on Fox programs in which he provides no useful information
about the deadly surge, responded that Osterholm was “denying the data
that exists on all the places that did lockdowns, because the fact is the
lockdown does not get rid of the virus.” Ingraham and Atlas went on to
take shots at Fauci, with Ingraham claiming he had become “a political
pundit for Joe Biden” and Atlas chiming in that “maybe he’s cheered up
because of the election” and lost his credibility by becoming a “political
animal.”

Carlson also went after Osterholm that night, with the help of his
frequent guest, “Covid Contrarian” Alex Berenson. Berenson suggested that
lockdowns are ineffective and “inherently political,” suggesting that they
had been implemented as part of a plot to defeat Trump’s reelection. He
went on to urge Republicans to “raise their voices” during the Biden
administration to prevent “national lockdowns” and “national mask
mandates” while making their own coronavirus recommendations, which he did
not detail. Carlson responded that Republicans should “save the country
from complete destruction from any of those threats, but certainly from a
COVID shutdown, which I don't think anybody thinks it's a good idea.”

On Wednesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced new restrictions in
light of the surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the state and
throughout the country. Beginning Friday, restaurants, bars, and gyms
cannot remain open past 10 p.m., and no more than 10 people may attend
indoor and outdoor gatherings at private homes. If anything, these
guidelines are too minor to curb the spread of the virus, which does not
care at what time people are dining, drinking, or exercising indoors
without masks. But Fox hosts are predictably branding them as tyrannical.

“So if you were to somehow get inside the brain of any authoritarian, you
would find that their fantasies aren't the conventional fantasies,”
Carlson opened his segment on the Cuomo restrictions Wednesday. “An
authoritarian fantasizes about controlling you, and coronavirus has given
the perfect pretext to do that. Now, they force their way into your home.
You're not going to believe this story.”

And Fox & Friends on Thursday featured attacks on both Osterholm’s
lockdown comments and Cuomo’s new restrictions.

Trump’s administration is coming to an end. But his Fox supporters and
their Murdoch bosses seem to want to make sure that he doesn’t leave
office without a shocking death toll.
