Can there be any higher instance of absolutely the untruthfulness of varied mainstream media varieties than this wildly unfaithful assault on Sean Hannity by The View’s Sunny Hostin?
Right here’s the headline from The Wrap:
‘The View’: Sunny Hostin Calls Hannity’s Vaccination Endorsement ‘Too Little, Too Late’
“It solely took Sean Hannity over 600,000 deaths to get on board,” Hostin says
The story studies the next:
“It solely took Sean Hannity over 600,000 deaths to get on board and advise his many, many tens of millions of viewers to lastly get vaccinated. I believe it is too little, too late,” Hostin stated on Tuesday’s episode of “The View.”
Whats up? Whats up, Sunny? Is anyone dwelling?
Let’s flip to the report on Sean Hannity and the vaccine. Right here’s a brief record of what he has stated on the topic and when he stated it.
September, 2020: “A number of COVID vaccines within the closing part of testing… It’ll solely be a matter of months earlier than a vaccine is available… If medical doctors and scientists say it’s secure my private inclination is to take it.”
April, 2021: “Let me be very clear. I’m not in any respect anti-science. I really like science. I’m not anti-vaccine in any respect. I’m grateful specialists have been capable of develop one in report time.”
Might 10, 2021: “I really like science and I completely consider in vaccines! I’m as pro-vaccine and pro-science as anybody!”
Might 17, 2021: “Sure I’m pro-science and I’m very pro-vaccine. I’m professional the science of vaccination. I’m not a health care provider. And I refuse to play one on radio and TV regardless of what number of instances folks demand I inform folks whose medical situation I do know nothing about, who, after all, have the fitting to make up their very own thoughts what to do. It’s not my job. My job is to provide them info that hopefully can be helpful to them. I’ve been urging everybody to take it critically, to guard grandma and grandpa, Mother and Dad, particularly if they aren’t vaccinated. Do your analysis. Ask your physician or medical doctors who know your particular, distinctive medical situation. And I consider in medical privateness. After which at the side of your medical doctors and medical professionals you understand, love and belief, make the fitting determination to guard your self, defend your family members and defend harmless folks you could are available contact with.”
Might 19, 2021: “I’ve stated it time and time once more. Can’t politicize science. Nor vaccines. Warp Velocity, Donald Trump, it labored. We acquired three of them. We acquired therapeutics like Regeneron and others. (Regeneron produced a Covid-19 antibody cocktail.) And nonetheless – combined messages. I’m very pro-science, very pro-vaccine. We will’t have politics infecting vital medical selections, affecting our capacity to get again to regular, and affecting our capacity to study all the pieces we will in regards to the virus, together with its origins.”
July, 2021: “Alright, let’s stick with the science, Senator. I consider in science, I consider within the science of vaccinations. However I’m not a health care provider. The strain to inform folks what to do. I’m telling folks this: I would like my viewers to reside. I don’t need anybody dying from this factor. It’s harmful. Take it critically. I would like folks, in case you have a cellular phone there’s a wealth of knowledge, greater than you may ever learn, out there so that you can learn. Additionally, discuss to your physician, that know your private medical historical past. Your present medical situations. Seek the advice of different medical skilled you belief. After which make the choice in session along with your physician. I believe that’s accountable recommendation for everybody.”
As an on a regular basis Hannity listener I’ve heard him say a variation on all the above loads. A LOT.
But there may be Sunny Hostin – or is that Dr. Sunny Hostin?- attempting to inform her viewers that Hannity is simply now on board for vaccinations when that is provably unfaithful. And oh sure, overlook about consulting your physician on whether or not you must take the vaccine, hear as an alternative to Sunny. Miraculously she is aware of not solely your medical report however that of all of her viewers. Superb.
Briefly, Hostin is enjoying politics with vaccinations. She is, actually, taking a web page from then-Senator Kamala Harris in 2020.
Keep in mind, as above, that Hannity was saying this on getting vaccinated in September of 2020: “If medical doctors and scientists say it’s secure my private inclination is to take it.”
Distinction Hannity on vaccinations with Harris a mere one month later in October of 2020. Recall this headline from Fox News:
Vice presidential debate: Kamala Harris claims she will not take vaccine if Trump recommends
VP Pence slammed Harris for ‘undermining public confidence’ in a possible vaccine
In some way, in some mysterious approach, Hostin was, so far as I can inform, not upset about Harris saying she would refuse to be vaccinated if Trump have been president. But it surely’s now okay to counsel that Hannity was against the vaccine when, actually, he clearly was expressing help for the vaccine whereas Harris was busy politicizing it by saying she would refuse to get vaccinated if Trump have been president.
Look. I’ve no downside in saying I acquired my Moderna photographs. No downside for me. The primary time I used to be vaccinated for one thing that I can recall was, actually, once I was in kindergarten and my little classmates and I have been all given a small paper cup with a syrupy liquid in it – the model new vaccine for polio. And I’ve had my share of vaccines since then.
However there may be nothing fallacious with encouraging folks to do their analysis on the vaccine and discuss to their physician. That’s the very essence of frequent sense. Which Hannity has displayed repeatedly, for months.
To counsel Hannity has stated in any other case and is a few type of anti-vaxxer, as Hostin has finished, is simply not truthful.
Surprising? Sadly not.
