From HuffPost:

Cain used the news of Powell’s death to rail against President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates. He claimed there’d be calls for “more truth from our government” and noted that fully vaccinated people are being hospitalized and dying from COVID-19, even though the vast majority of victims are unvaccinated.

Roberts deleted a widely criticized tweet saying Powell’s death “raises new questions” about the shots, replacing it with a thread saying he was not anti-vaccine.

Carlson, meanwhile, suggested Americans are “being lied to” about the vaccines. He did not appear to reference Powell’s other health issues until the end of his broadcast.


As per usual, CNN’s Don Lemon is over Fox News.

“The man had just died and this guy couldn’t wait to make it into a fight about vaccine mandates. It is disgraceful,” Lemon said of Cain.

Fox News knows that this kind of broadcast is irresponsible—and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
