Tucker Carlson blames Biden for dangerous anti-Vax concern
In what has become a common occurrence these days, Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed a controversy on his own Thursday night, this time regarding his dangerous and botched suggestion that dozens of Americans are dying. vaccines against the coronavirus every day. Did he explain the highly misleading and dishonest speculation? Well, blaming everything on President Joe Biden, of course, Carlson, who has increasingly sought to question the efficacy and safety of highly effective vaccines, has carried his skepticism of vaccines to new highs Wednesday night when he cited a faulty opening. – database dubbed “breeding ground for disinformation” to suggest thousands of Americans died from gunfire. “Between late December 2020 and last month, a total of 3,362 people apparently died after receiving the COVID vaccine in the United States. Carlson exclaimed, citing the Center for Disease Control’s vaccine adverse event reporting system. “That’s an average of around 30 people a day. So what does this mean? By the way, that reporting period ended on April 23, and we don’t have any numbers after that. While acknowledging that there have been criticisms of the VAERS database figures and insisting that he thinks “vaccines are not dangerous,” Carlson still spent 15 minutes speculating that federally licensed COVID-19 vaccines are causing untold numbers of deaths. “The actual number is almost certainly greater than [30 people every day]Of course, Carlson never once noted that the CDC itself analyzed death reports submitted to VAERS – which are nothing more than open data – and came up with the following conclusion: “A A review of available clinical information, including death certificates, autopsy, and medical records, has not established a causal relationship with COVID-19 vaccines. ” After a 24 hour period in which he was severely criticized and verified – including from his own colleagues at Fox – Carlson issued his rebuttal. And he wanted his critics to know he was “just asking questions.” Oh, and it’s Biden’s fault too. “We researched the numbers the Biden administration collected on vaccine safety. Then last night we boldly read those numbers on TV – Biden’s numbers, “Carlson began mockingly.” In doing so, we noted that the administration’s injury reporting system – it’s called VAERS – has been credibly accused of being inaccurate. , “he added.” We also noted that the same system has been in use for a long time. ” Insisting once again that “more deaths have been linked to new COVID vaccines in the past four months than all previous vaccines combined” in recent years – again, something the CDC has completely demolished – Carlson has claimed he was just looking for answers. “Very same system, very different results,” he said, adding, “How does that happen? So what is this explanation? We still don’t know. Instead of answering this simple and important question, the usual chorus of supporters started screaming and calling for censorship! After ridiculing his detractors for telling him the VAERS figures are not trustworthy, he wanted to know why “the Biden administration hasn’t corrected its reporting? “And” what are the real numbers. Carlson, meanwhile, ended the segment by returning outrage over his reckless speculation about his detractors, insisting that they are in fact the ones who are harming the public. “It’s fair to ask for the damage done. by this drug. Nobody told us, ”he said. “Their position is, you don’t need to know the injury rate! It does not matter. Anyone who asks about evil is immoral. This is what they are discussing. If you ever find yourself discussing this, you’ll know for sure you’ve lost track. You no longer advocate for public health. You are doing something else entirely. Carlson, of course, might just read the disclaimers when searching the database to realize that this is not a typical government data source and that the numbers do reflect not a direct causal link. “Reports may include incomplete or inaccurate information. , accidental and unverified information, “one disclaimer read, while another warns,” The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to draw conclusions about existence, the severity, frequency or rate of problems associated with the vaccines.
