Fox hosts express ‘relief’ about getting COVID vaccine, encourage people to get the shot

The stars of Fox and Friends plugged the coronavirus vaccine on Monday in a strangely on-the-nose segment that may have alienated some viewers.

Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Ainsley Earhardt pointedly discussed their “relief” after getting the shot, and even engaged in a bit of fear-mongering — the term “peril” was used — to convince reluctant viewers to follow their lead.

“I understand there are people that have vaccine hesitancy, but we all three are vaccinated,” Earhardt began.

Hosts plug COVID vaccine

Earhardt spoke about how she now has “so much freedom,” and Doocy agreed that it was a “relief” to get the jab.

“Now I know I’m not gonna get it [coronavirus], I’m not going to die from it if I do get it. There’s a small percentage chance that you could get it,” Earhardt said.

Doocy replied that “it’s the people who have not gotten the shot” who are “the ones who are in peril,” and Kilmeade interjected that those who refuse the shot are “making their own decisions.”

As the weird PSA skit continued, the other hosts agreed that taking the shot should be optional, but they hinted that those who refuse it will have to accept living with many limitations. “They’ve got to run by the rules, and social distance….the worry is that they would infect somebody else who also, like them, is not vaccinated,” Doocy said.

Fox patronizes the “vaccine hesitant”

While the Fox and Friends lineup talked up the shot as a return to normal life, there was an ironic — and stark — reminder of why many have “vaccine hesitancy” at all in a chyron that read, “Officials move goalposts on returning to normalcy.”

Even as health authorities and their surrogates continue to push the goalposts, they have turned to increasingly coercive measures to overcome the resistance of the “vaccine hesitant,” sparking push back from Fox hosts such as Tucker Carlson.

The Fox and Friends cast seemed to go out of their way to placate the left as the mainstream media ramps up criticism of Fox, and Carlson especially, for spreading so-called “misinformation” on the vaccine by voicing concerns about the shot — and efforts to make it mandatory — that many Americans share.

If they really wanted to encourage reluctant viewers to get the shot, surely Fox and Friends could have found a less passive-aggressive way of getting the point across? If Fox viewers wanted to be patronized about their “vaccine hesitancy,” they could just tune into CNN.

  2. Do we care what all those rich tv folks want us to do? Being a guinea pig for an experiment is scary.

  4. Deeply saddened by Fox and Friends for placating the liberal left. I am a doctor and I’m not getting the gene therapy shot. My body my choice. How dare they discriminate against those that refuse having these injections for another version of the flu. Shame on them.

    1. Amen Richard! I was caught completely off guard when I read this. I don’t watch daytime tv and very little in the evening, especially news. But, I thought FOX people were a little more “informed” on things, especially the horrendous side effects from the “shot”, to not only those that got it, but those around them!!! No jab for me! And, if they’re so confident in their “vaccine”, why are they still “social distancing”?!

  5. Fear mongering is most certainly working especially with the Fox morning show and it’s hosts.
    I’ve moved away from Fox to Newsmax and OAN. I do record Tucker Carlson who steps forward with the truth.

  6. Well you little fox friends darlings!!! you just go right ahead and get all of the vaccination shots your little heart desires. But as for me and my house, we will do exactly what we please about taking any vaccine or any other type of injection!!! So don’t be trying to push your little views onto other people!!! We are all grown up and WE MAKE OUR OWN DECISIONS!!
