Fox News Effect: Canada Now Beating USA At Vaccination

Canada, where there is no Fox News, now surging ahead of America on vaccines.

Canada is now surging ahead of the United States in how many people have been vaccinated, a sobering statistic that shows the dangerous effect right-wing media like Fox News has had on public health.

“Now, compared to Americans, a greater share of Canadians are fully vaccinated, at 49.1 percent compared to 48.5 percent in the United States. It’s a sharp departure from three months ago when America, with a huge head start thanks to wider availability of vaccines, had a population that was about ten times more likely to be fully vaccinated,” the magazine Mother Jones now reports.

While Canada has right-leaning media outlets, it has nothing like Fox News, who has for months beaten the drums of the anti-vaccine movement. Despite advice and warnings from health professionals and public officials, millions of Americans have refused to vaccinate and are following Fox’s lead.

The network’s most visible figures, like prime time host Tucker Carlson, have claimed the vaccines are harmful when they are not and even raised questions about the vaccination process. At the same time, reports have noted that it is highly likely that Carlson, along with Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity have really taken the medicines.
