CNN â€œNew Dayâ€ anchors Brianna Keilar and John Berman hammered home the same point over and over on Wednesday â€” that 99% of peopleÂ who are now dying from COVID-19 in the United States are unvaccinated.
They also called out Fox NewsÂ personalities including Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, other conservative media outlets and GOP lawmakers who have sown doubt about the COVID-19 vaccines that have been declared by scientists worldwide to safely slow the spread of the coronavirus.
â€œMillions of Americans are seeing this nonsensical, nonscientific propaganda instead of this,â€ said Berman, cutting to a public service announcement from Australiaâ€™s Department of Health showing a young woman with COVID-19 struggling to breathe on a ventilator.
â€œWhen history asks how so many Americans died when they could have been saved by a simple shot or two, youâ€™ll see these TV clips again that weâ€™ve just shown, in documentaries, about the cautionary tale that has been Americaâ€™s response to the coronavirus pandemic,â€ said Keilar.
â€œAbout how a large part of our country, misled by misinformation often echoed by elected officials and right-wing media, was thrown a life raft, and instead said, â€˜No, Iâ€™ll take my chances,â€™â€ she added.
