Thank God for Rachel Maddow. I’ve had the TV on all day for the last two days, but in her A-Block tonight, Rachel provided graphic evidence that it’s far past time for the FCC to start seriously looking at revoking FUX News license as a legitimate news channel.
Rachel reported tonight that in addition to having to deal with a collapsing healthcare system, Mississippi suddenly found today that an incredible 70% of the calls coming into their poison control center were from people who had ingested a drug called Ivermectin. What the hell is Ivermectin? It’s a livestock drug used to deworm horses! And why would a shitload of Mississippi residents suddenly start ingesting a livestock deworming drug?
Because fucking FUX News told them to! Rachel showed recent segments from Fucker Carlson, Flat Top Hannity, and Cruella de Ingraham that touted the wonder cure qualities of not only Is IL Douche’s old favorite, hydroxychloroquine, but also touting the miracle results of Ivermectin.
And it turns out that nothing could be further from the truth. Not only did the CDC come out and strongly tell people not to ingest that shit, and not only did the NIH some out and strongly tell people not to ingest that shit, and not only did the FDA come out strongly to tell people not to take that shit, even the fucking manufacturer came out and strongly told people not to take that shit! Especially if they’re getting it from livestock feed stores!
Look, it’s one thing for a media network to have either a liberal or conservative bias. That’s fine and understood by the people who watch. But it’s another thing for a network to cross the line into outright partisan propaganda, which FUX News did 5 years or more ago. But it totally crosses a red line when a network stops being a partisan propaganda machine, and becomes a literal national health threat! And if Rasputin Rupert can’t control his howler monkeys, then the FCC is going to have to step in and do it for him.
