“When the virus was silently spreading across the United States, some of Fox’s biggest stars denied and downplayed the threat posed by the virus; Trump echoed them; and they echoed back. . . Most Americans knew that Trump was untrustworthy, but the Fox base still trusted him. They also trusted Hannity, who dismissed ‘coronavirus hysteria,’ and Laura Ingraham who called Democrats the ‘panDEMic party.’ . . . As ICU admissions and the death toll rose, Fox’s most vociferous critics said the network had blood on its hands.“
“As the number of (COVID-19) cases ballooned and the CDC warned about ‘disruption to everyday life might be severe’ . . . Democrats said Trump wasn’t taking the threat seriously enough. Trump rebuffed them and claimed the virus was ‘very well under control in our country.’ Fox’s (News) overarching storyline was set: the damn Democrats were unfairly using the virus as a cudgel against Trump. One night Laura Ingraham’s show screamed ‘LEFT WEAPONIZING CORONAVIRUS FEARS.“
