CNN Propagandist Dana Bash To Surgeon General: Is Fox, Conservative Media Killing People? (Video)

It seems the liberal media is doing all it can to foment hate and violence against conservatives these days.  The latest proof of that can be seen in an interview between CNN propagandist Dana Bash and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy.

During that interview, Bash seemed to be following the lead set by His Lying Demented Fraudulence, Emperor Joe Biden, when he suggested social media outfits like Facebook are “killing people” by allowing what he deems to be “misinformation” being spread online.

“Do you think conservative media, like Fox News, are doing the same? Are they killing people, too, with rhetoric like you just heard?” she asked Murthy.

Newsbusters’ Tim Graham posted a transcript:

BASH: And to that point, you said that disinformation coming from so-called bad actors is also to blame for this. And I want our viewers to have an idea of disinformation being spread on the right. Take a listen.

LAURA INGRAHAM, FOX NEWS: There’s nothing more anti-democratic, anti-freedom than pushing an experimental drug on Americans against their will.

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: The idea that you would force people to take medicine they don’t want or need, is there a precedent for that in our — in our lifetime?

ROB SCHMITT, NEWSMAX: I feel like a vaccination, in a weird way, is just generally kind of going against nature.

BASH: I wonder if that person has ever flown in an airplane or a car or taken an Advil. But, besides that, President Biden did accuse social media platforms of killing people. Do you think conservative media, like Fox News, are doing the same? Are they killing people, too, with rhetoric like you just heard?

Of course, as Graham pointed out, Bash was cherry-picking quotes from Carlson and Ingraham to make her point, and failed to put those quotes into context:

Notice that Ingraham and Carlson are featured mostly attacking mandatory vaccination, not vaccination. (Saying we don’t “need” vaccination sounds more hardline.) On Tucker’s July 6 show, he was making the point that the average age of those who died from COVID was 78, but the liberals panicked everyone.

During the segment quoted from July 12, Ingraham played a clip of liberal Sen. Dick Durbin saying “There are two host of programs on Fox primetime that can only be characterized as anti-vax quacks. I’m referring, of course, to Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.” CNN is the Voice of Durbin. Or she’s copy-catting leftists at The New Republic.

Context…  It’s such a wonderful thing.  But don’t expect Bash to provide any of that, at least when there’s a narrative that MUST be spun.

Fortunately, Murthy side-stepped her attack:

MURTHY: Well, Dana, I think all of us, including the media, including individuals, health professionals, have a responsibility to share the truth about health, as science dictates, as science informs us. And unless we do that, unless we are honest about the consequences of our communication with people, unless we are rigorous about ensuring that what we communicate is actually sourced from science, and not from an opinion, on critical issues like the vaccine, then we are going to ultimately put people at risk.

So this is the new propaganda line — anyone who disagrees with the Regime is guilty of killing people.

One person noted:

Indeed…  As well as any other conservative outlet she and her network defamed with this segment.

Our response?  Well, since this IS a family-friendly site, let’s just say that our reaction can be summed up with a single finger.  You can probably figure that one out for yourself…

Exit question: We’re not anti-vax, mind you, but if the vaccines are such a Godsend, then would someone please explain to us how it is that multiple Democrat lawmakers fleeing Texas to keep from voting tested positive for Covid-19 — DESPITE being fully vaccinated?  I know that in this day and age of wokeness and tyranny, we’re not allowed to ask uncomfortable questions, but we really would like to know.

We won’t hold our breath waiting for an answer…
