Stelter: Fox News Is ‘Misleading Their Viewers’ on Hydroxychloroquine Because They Think They’re Helping Trump
STELTER: “The millions of Americans who use this drug for approved purposes, including my wife, people who have autoimmune issues and need this drug became worried they wouldn’t be able to get it because of the drug pushing that was happening on Fox News and from the White House podium. You know, the president yesterday was asked about this new study, and he said he hadn’t seen the report. And that may be because Fox News is barely talking about it, because it doesn’t fit the narrative that was being promoted in late March and early April. But recently, Fox has moved on. They’ve stopped talking about this drug and the hope that it could be beneficial. They have moved on to other quick fixes and other pro-Trump narratives. You know, this network, these stars, they think they’re helping the president, but they’re actually hurting him when they push these narratives. And ultimately, they’re misleading their viewers, and that’s why it is so troubling. Why would we ever think a Fox News star or any president should be promoting a drug? It’s outlandish."
