Fox News downplays COVID-19 risk, ignoring grave long-term side effects

Since the onset of the pandemic, Fox News has been a massive vector of misinformation as multiple studies have shown that reckless coverage from Fox News and other conservative media outlets may have increased the spread of COVID-19.

Leading Fox News personalities frequently downplay the risks of COVID-19 by ignoring the growing list of long-term harms some survivors experience. Instead, they cite survival rates as if death is the only possible negative outcome for an individual or their community.
